It’s been almost 20 years since the Charlotte Hornets made their biggest blunder, trading Kobe Bryant to the Los Angeles Lakers shortly after drafting him. In July, he thanked the Hornets for making that decision in a Twitter rant.
This week, Kobe weighed on the similar situation with prospect Andrew Wiggins, who is being traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves by the Cleveland Cavaliers before even playing a single game for them.
Here’s what the NBA superstar had to say about the situation, according to reports: “Cleveland is making the same mistake that Charlotte made with me.”
Is Kobe actually comparing Wiggins to him? Does he think the rookie will made the impact he has? What do you think?
