Kobe Bryant Almost Joined Michael Jordan On the Wizards.
Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports
Could you imagine? Back in 2003, Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant was thinking of leaving LA, and according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post, he wanted to sign with the Wizards to play with Michael Jordan. Bryant said...

"I've always been very big on having mentors, on having muses and I've been really, really big on that," "Being around guys who have done it before and done it at a high level and always tried to pick their brains and always tried to absorb knowledge. Obviously, being in that situation [with the Wizards], it would've helped having to be around him every day and so on."
The Wizards ended up not have the players to pull off a trade for Bryant, but that would have been interesting. You can read the whole Washington Post story [link=(according to this story from Michael Lee of the Washington Post)]here[/link].
