 As stated above... We also Drafted Kobe Bryant and traded him for Vlade Divac.....Hornets history is depressing...

We traded the 13th pick for Vlade Divac  ... the Lakers made the pick.

12 other teams passed on Kobe Bryant.

We were a 50+ win team for the next couple of years.

Hornets history isn't that bad.  Bobcats/NuHornets history is painful.

That’s not the story that Kobe told... though I do know teams do draft for other teams. Story goes Kobe pilled a Eli Manning and refused to play for the hornets. Kobe said something like the hornets didn’t want him and willingly traded him:

To clarify:

Quote

Armed with the knowledge that the Hornets were in the market for a post player, (Jerry) West made a pre-draft deal with (Bob) Bass in which the Hornets would draft Bryant if he were still available and later swap his rights to Los Angeles for Divac.

"We had the deal, " Bass said, "but who in the world thought (Bryant) would be there at No. 13? And the Lakers, regardless of what they said after they had (Bryant), but they wanted space on the cap to sign Shaquille O'Neal. And devious as I am, I thought it would be a good way to get Shaquille out of the Eastern Conference. If we'd have gotten Michael and some others out, that would have been something."

Former New Orleans Hornets GM Bob Bass lives with the decision of trading Kobe Bryant for Vlade Divac
