We lost Kobe and Gianna Bryant a year ago today. Still pretty weird to type that. The LA Times remembered him with footage from his 1996 pre-draft workout for the Clippers back when he 17-years-old...
After the Clippers picked Wright and the Lakers traded for Bryant, who was taken 13th by Charlotte, his intuition told him to keep the VHS.
“This one, I knew was going to be something that I would want to look back at someday,” Kalamian said. “I kind of put it aside and kept it in a box for a very long time.”
His decision preserved a slightly grainy but little-seen window into the budding start of one of the NBA’s most iconic careers.
Now an assistant in Sacramento, the seventh stop of his 28-year NBA career, Kalamian recently showed the video to Kings coach Luke Walton, a former Lakers teammate of Bryant, during a road trip. Two years ago, while coaching with the Clippers, Kalamian didn’t think much of it when he asked a video staffer to convert a CD of the workout into a digital file.
