- Kobe Bryant is now retired, but his career began with the 1996 NBA Draft.
- The 1996 NBA Draft included 23 players who went on to play at least ten seasons in the league and some of the best guards of the last two decades.
Kobe Bryant wrapped up his career in 2016, a Hall-of-Fame journey that started with the 1996 NBA draft, one of the best drafts of all time.
In addition to producing Kobe, one of the greatest players ever, it also gave us one of the most entertaining players ever in Allen Iverson, and a host of future Hall of Famers.
Today, many of these players are still involved in basketball in some way. But there’s also a former math teacher, TV analysts, a nervous dressage parent, and one who was still playing basketball in 2018.
Allen Iverson was picked first overall by the Philadelphia 76ers.
He has had financial and personal issues since retiring. But he still does Reebok commercials, promotes the shoes in China, and has served as a coach in Ice Cube’s Big3 basketball league. He also reportedly has a $32 million trust fund, and was recently elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame.
Marcus Camby was picked second overall by the Toronto Raptors.
