Timberwolves almost drafted Kobe Bryant in 1996 NBA Draft

first_img“Uhhhh, I’m not going to answer that question,” Lin said. “Next question, please.”The question was still posed to him. After all, Lin has scored in double digits in 15 of the past 22 games despite seeing inconsistent roles as both a starter, reserve, point guard and off-ball guard. “I understand God is in control,” Lin said. “That’s the biggest thing for me. It doesn’t matter what’s happening around me. I don’t always understand. I’m not talking about this season, but in life. I don’t always understand what happened or why things happen the way they did. But I understand God has a perfect plan and he loves me.”Lin seemed more concern about a recent sinus issue that he believes he can recover from during the Lakers day off on Thursday as they travel to Toronto.“I might just sleep until Friday morning” Lin joked, “and see you guys at shootaround.” The Timberwolves acquired Garnett in a mid-season trade from Brooklyn, a move both to mentor Minnesota’s young players and possibly end his career with the team that originally drafted him. But the history between Bryant and Garnett mostly rest on the NBA Finals matchups between the Lakers and Celtics in 2008 (Lakers lost 4-2) and 2010 (Lakers won 4-3). But Saunders’ most definitive memory of Bryant and Garnett took place when he coached them in the 2004 NBA All-Star game.“Kobe was picking guys up at 94 feet,” Saunders said. “That’s his competitiveness and nature in wanting to win and play. KG is the same way. As long as they love playing the game, they’re going to keep on playing.” Staying calmLakers guard Jeremy Lin initially did not want to broach the subject. He was asked if he was surprised he sat out of the final 11:21 of the fourth quarter and all of overtime despite posting 19 points on 6-of-14 shooting and five assists. MINNEAPOLIS – The possibility still haunts and intrigues Minnesota coach Flip Saunders 19 years later. What would have happened had the Minnesota Timberwolves selected Kobe Bryant fifth overall in the 1996 NBA Draft? That would have paired Bryant along with Kevin Garnett, two high school phenoms who eventually morphed into future Hall of Famers. Instead, Minnesota selected Ray Allen and traded him to Milwaukee for Stephon Marbury. “We teetered on the idea of getting another one because we had success with KG,” Saunders said before the Lakers’ 101-99 overtime win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday at Target Center. “But we kind of thought it would be too much having two of those guys who were young at that time and still in the process of developing KG as a young player.”Neither Bryant (right shoulder) nor Garnett (sore left knee) played in Wednesday’s game in what could have been the second-to-last matchup before Garnett’s possible final season in a storied 19-year NBA career. center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
