Kobe Bryant Almost Played With Michael Jordan [Details]
Can you imagine the lethal combination of Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant playing on the same squad? This NBA2K MyTeam fantasy was almost a reality in 2004 as Kobe’s contract was up for renegotiation. According to the Washington Post, in the midst of his public feud with Shaq and hopes to win more championships, Kobe highly considered joining the Washington Wizards, where Michael Jordan was staging his second come back, as he’d always viewed His Royal Airness as a mentor of sorts. Unfortunately, this dream collaboration never came into fruition when in 2003, Jordan’s contract ended and his relationship with the Wizards was abruptly terminated. Can you imagine Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan working together on the same squad? The potential for rings, MVP awards and more are endless. Pardon me while I load up the Xbox and live out this fantasy in the peace of my living room.
