There were 12 players drafted before Kobe Bryant. How did that happen? And how did their careers turn out?


  • Those stupid commercials are ruining your channel. Unsubscribed

  • Real question why would Charlotte trade him to the Lakers!!!!

  • What is the Allen Iverson video you talk about called?

  • I only know bout shareef cuz he was an absolute nightmare on nba ballers phenom

  • Philly wouldn't have given Kobe the chance to blossom there.

  • Again, these vids are kinda dumb bc in 90s, not til 2001 was a HS player drafted #1. before, GMs went on skill and talent rather than potential. KG was first, he was drafted #5 by MINN, but was drafted after Joe Smith, Antonio McDyss, Jerry Stackhouse, and Rasheed Wallace. What did all those player have in common? Went to big universities, faced top level competition, performed. In 96, Kobe was drafted #13 and Jermaine O'Neal was drafted #17. O'Neal was on the bench with Blazers til he was traded to the Pacers. Kobe came off the bench his first year. But who was drafted before Kobe? AI, Camby, Abdur-Rahim, Marbury, Allen, A Walker, Lorenzen Wright, Kerry Kittles. Again, what they all have in common? at universities, faced top level competition, performed.

  • Marbury had a lot of off-court issues, depression and such things.

  • Only liking because THAT TRANSITION WAS SO SMOOTH

  • 7:26 It worked because Kobe is a fucking lunatic

  • Favorite series you do!! 👍🏼

  • AI deserved the #1 spot regaurdless of how kobes mighty rings turned out AI proved himself in football and basketball in high school and then college; lol Kobe never proved himself in college AI was the most gifted of the 96 draft and possibly any draft.

  • But what about Brady huh???

  • these vids are getting pretty dumb. Ok, the player (Kobe) became an all time great, but when he was drafted, he was an unknown. He wasnt LBJ, he came out 7 years before LBJ. Kobe didnt have all the media coverage and HS games televised.

  • Do 1 on Dirk

  • I definitely fast fowarded thru that raid crap

  • Kobe was really the catalyst for HS kids have bigtime potential. I'm if it wasn't for him maybe lots of players needs to go to college to make it to pros .. (Rule Was Changed Later on).

  • LeBron James 😜

  • SG players seem to be the hard choices, cuzz very few get the Kobe success...

  • I remember there was a lot of hype when Kobe was drafted. It turned out to be for real, but he wasn't even a starter on the Lakers his first year yet he was selected for the all star team.

  • I have vitaly's card

  • Lets not forget , seahawks threw the ball on 1 yard line....

  • Can you make a vid of 59 players drafted before Isaiah Thomas the 60th overall pick . that would be spectacular

  • Because they were stupid? Philly had scouts at most of Kobe’s high school games and trust, Kobe dominated and they still drafted Iverson. Not knocking Iverson, he was a bad dude but Kobe simply is a one of a kind talent. Philly cost themselves titles.

  • Because he was a high school kid and nobody wants to bet their franchise on a teenager

  • Iverson's were the best shoe ever!

  • This are terrible games

  • What do you mean why? This is a dumb title for a video

  • Y'all playing Raid or what?

  • Why he dragging Iverson like that

  • u said durant instead of garnett

  • For anyone curious about how Lorenzen Wright died, he was killed by his wife(with an accomplice i believe) for his 1 million dollar insurance policy

  • Difficult to think you are the GOAT when you were not even the best player on your own team when Shaq was there. Kobe delusion.

    • Yes! Thank you. Finally someone speaking some truth.

  • Good vid. Shameless plug. 👎

  • nba is garbanzo beans, super weak sauce, kinda like Metallica, regardless of the previous body of work, ALL the emptiness of the soulless music (sports) ruins any supposed amazing work pre garbanzo beans and ZONE defense....curry sux, seriously sux gaybron is a gay porn star an forces it, forces it, forces it anden gets paid to FORCE IT.!. eat a dick

  • Kobe is NOT better than AI. Kobe had Shaq and Robert Horry.

  • Allen Iverson has always been great, diminishing role getting older whatever he a career 25 plus ppg player has 6ft tall

  • Antoine Walker was coming off a national championship. One of the most loaded teams in history. At least one of the best of the 90's

  • Memphis is down by 12 they put AI in the game AI makes 8 straight pts and coach pulls him... AI was not washed up they forced him out

  • How come Kobe Bryant didn't punch Reggie Miller in the face when he threw him in the stands?!!LOL

  • Why stop at Kobe? The next two picks were Peja Stojakovic and Steve Nash. Also, that draft year featured the first player ever to be cut as the first round draft choice: Travis Knight.

  • Fuck raid

  • 13:12 riiiight! Yo I swear I adored Kobe and Shaq-but KG and Kobe?🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️that would’ve been the biggest dog matchup in history. But, considering their uniforms in the early 2010’s I’m glad it didn’t happen😂😂😂it sounds like a joke but half the reason I became a lakers fan was their jerseys🤷🏾‍♂️purple and gold were two of my favorite colors

  • I'm stunned that you didn't wrap this up with the fact that Kobe was actually traded by the Hornets after he was drafted.

  • Iverson was a thug with great basketball skills....smh dumb fuck.

  • Don’t ever disrespect A.I like that. Dislike.

    • I was thinking the same thing. He didn't mention he is an HoF and he played over seas. Not to mention he is one of the best at his postilion.

  • You should make videos on who was drafted after these Stars & what happened.

  • What about manu ginobili?

  • Dude ima Philly fan from 8 years old I promise we wld never trade Kobe for Iverson his off the court problems made him relatable and more likeable in Philadelphia we truly love Iverson and Kobe he layed high school in Philly upper Marion and also how wld he have paired up with Vince ,Vince was drafted 98

  • I thought there were 12 players taken before Kobe because the Hornets had the 13th overall pick and not the 1st.

  • I don't know what's worse getting punch by Kobe Bryant or getting drafted before Kobe Bryant.

  • Yo....just realized Antwan Walker started the Shimmy🔥🔥😦

  • Why was there a long ass game advertisement in this video? And was it really necessary?

  • Compare Iverson to Kobe first 5 years...after kobe gets real minutes...after the 2 year bench

  • The shark study worked because players like Stockton, iverson and miller were always moving and were aggressive like sharks

  • NBA deprived Kobe in many ways

  • AI is a former MVP, ROTY 11 time All-Star(MVP twice) 3x all nba FIRST team 3x all nba second team 1x all nba third team 4x scoring champion 3x steals leader PLEASE tell me how Ray Allen had a more successful individual career then him. #TheAnswer

    • Sound like a team accolade to me 🤷🏾‍♂️

    • 0 rings

  • paused at 19:32 can definitely see paul pierce is jealous

  • that's funny af, you could end up with kobe bryant, or you could end up with a guy punched by kobe bryant, hahaha

  • Chill with the A.I. disrespect

  • You gotta stop those long intros with advertisements bro

  • It was because Kobe wanted to play in a big market

  • He couldn't get off the bench behind Eddie Jones !

  • Dom I love your videos bro but correction TMac was drafted first, so they drafted Vince to pair him with TMAC not the other way around

    • tmac and vince scenario was like harden in OKC, you trade him then Boom! just needs more opportunity

  • Shut up dude philly loves AI and AI is a NBA legend

  • A lot of teams passed on him because it was known he didn't wanna play for just any team and his trade value wasn't that high. Look what Charlotte got.......

  • The 1996 draft was wild man, Steve Nash went even later Ben Wallace wasn't even drafted

  • ngl that game looks fire

  • @ 3 min you can see the top 6 who got drafted before kobe.

  • Iverson career late was so strange. Dropped off the cliff literally

  • Jerry West just sees true potential look at him at the GSW's roster right now he is part of the higher office of the warriors now look at where are they now; one of the best teams of this decade

  • If u watched these players at the time u would see y they went b4 Kobe this just a keep my subscribers video

  • I must say Dom, this Why Were series is one of my favorites so far. Been a longtime fan. Keep it up

  • No Shaq no Phil he’s another ringless player.

    • Exactly, imagine AI in LA and Kobe in Philly, the latter would have requested a trade an year later.

  • Ironic how Iverson and Carmelo’s careers ended up so similar.

  • Im not hater of any player but if other player make by team star player they could be

  • Well maybe those 12 players KNEW how to fight with their "fists", not elbows :)

  • Jeez. Your ads suck

  • Why is he in a lakers jersey?

  • KG and Kobe... omg

  • Seahawks had it at the one and threw the ball

  • that pic of kobe in a celtics jersey is a cursed image and should never be shown. ever.

  • Image Kobe playing in Italy lol

  • Todd Fuller? Wow.. I have never heard of this guy! He was a real "screw up" by the Warriors. LOL I guess the real lesson for the NBA GMs is you have to look beyond the skillsets of an upcoming drafts. A few days of training camp and video tapes do not show much on "work ethics" and "attitudes" (just look at Iverson's attitudes issue). Kobe was young.. but he has immense attitude and "drive" to want to improve on his games. Look at Siakim and Middleton.. two players that are making a huge impact on their current team.. and both were playing G-league prior.

  • Kobe harder worker than Iverson. False..... but then again, we are takin bout practice.

  • You miss the Hornets

  • Raid kinda look fire

  • Kobe 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾🙏🏿🙌🏾🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐

  • Iverson top 5 sg Camby was that nigga Abdur rahim I don’t remember him Marbury was the deal Allen the best shooter Antoine walker fell quick Rip l Wright I don’t remember kittles Samaki walker bust Dampier eh Todd auto bust fuller Who tf the guy before Kobe

  • LeBron James: The 2k Cover Curse. Then again Giannis went god mode this season as cover but who knows

  • Hey Dom, any idea why I didn't get the epic character in Raid? I used your link.

  • Kobe and AI... one of them would have left Philadelphia...

  • Because brainwashed TV robots were making the decisions

  • What if. Lot of good players that year. I like reality.

  • Iverson always gets treated unfairly. It's underappreciated what it takes to take on guys who are in a higher weight and heightclass than you on a daily basis. He was no Muggsy Bogues, but to be as versatile as him and be able to take up some of the best that ever played at 6'0 (probably more like 5'10) deserves a medal.

  • Iverson will likely be a HOF but you sold him out like he did nothing right. 😒

    • He was enshrined in 2016 into the HoF.

  • Dom2k makes the best videos imo, way better than Mike Korzemba(korzemba is basically just clickbait that pads the runtime of his videos), your content is efficient/uses every minute to the best of its ability and doesn't feel like a waste of time to watch

  • Trending 😎

  • Do a livestream where you watch a 12min quarter 2k game against 2 teams and just talk basketball through it all!

  • Why were 12 players selected before Karl Malone?

  • I came back to this video just to see that he is in fact trending as he said on Twitter. Congrats Dom!!
