As the NBA Draft Lottery starts next week Tuesday, the Lakers will be guaranteed to have a top-nine draft pick. With their first round pick as their highest trade-asset, Mitch Kupchak is willing to trade the team’s only pick for a good offer. Kupchak also added that the franchise would like to have another pick in the mid-to-late first round.
In Roland Lazenby’s new book, Michael Jordan: The Life, Jordan suggests that he paved the way for Kobe Bryant’s finesse on the court by watching him play for the Bulls. Michael also praises Kobe in his book for his mental toughness in the game of basketball to consistently keep a high level of success.
