Why can't THIS be a BIG news story?

Allen Iverson and Kobe Bryant came into The NBA in 1996. Iverson was the first pick and Kobe was the 8th. At the time the big story on Allen was his troubled past. The big story on Kobe was his youth and potential. While both players have cemented their places in The NBA Hall of Fame, if I had been allowed to bet on which one would become a solid citizen who donated $100,000 to get guns out of the hands of kids and which one would be an accused rapist I KNOW I would have gotten it wrong.

As I'm sure you would have, too.

Congratulations, Allen. I'm proud of you.

Although, your field goal percentage is still too low for someone who shoots as much as you.
