What Coach K Thought Of Kobe Bryant, High School Basketball Recruit

In honor of Kobe Bryant ending his professional basketball career this evening, let's take a look back at what the greatest college basketball coach had to say about Kobe, the recruit. 

Bryant, of course, went straight from high school to the pros, but he was still checked out by hopeful college coaches when he was at Lower Merion in Philadelphia. 

Here's what Duke's Mike Krzyzewski had to say about Bryant in high school. 

You can watch Kobe's final game tonight on ESPN2. The Lakers and the Utah Jazz are set to tip off at 10:30 p.m. E.T.
