Kobe Bryant – Duke
Kobe has made it clear that he would have attended Duke had he made the decision to go to school. He says that he always wanted to play under Coach Krzyzewski and was able to at the 2008 Olympic Games.
Bryant would have been a part of the ’96-’97 Blue Devils team that won the ACC regular season title but was upset by Providence in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Kobe would have competed with ‘The Alaskan Assassin,” Trajan Langdon, for the starting shooting guard spot; but we have a feeling Coach K would have found time for both players.
