Not only do they look alike, Kobe Bryant also thinks that he and Andrew Wiggins have the same fate in the biggest stage of professional basketball, the NBA.
The two ballers will soon share the same career path when Andrew becomes eligible to be traded on the 24th of August after the 30-day lapse period upon signing his contract with the Cavaliers.
Bryant also underwent the same excruciating experience when the Charlotte Hornets decided to let him go via a pre-draft agreement in 1996 in exchange for Lakers big man Vlade Divac.
The pain soon became fame when Kobe made the Hornets pay by winning 5 championships, 1 MVP award, and 2 finals MVP plums for the Los Angeles Lakers.
Kobe believes that Andrew can somewhat duplicate what he did.
According to Basketball Insider (BI) Alex Kennedy @2014MrBasket, Kobe reportedly compares the potential Wiggins’ deal to when the Charlotte Hornets traded him, meaning that they’ll probably regret making the deal down the road.
"Cleveland is making the same mistake that Charlotte made with me." Kobe stated in an interview.
Well, it's scary to think that down the road, Wiggins will be like Kobe Bryant. It will be a nightmare on the part of the Cavs if Kobe's prophecy will become a reality.
