MEDIAMINE IN THE NEWS: Unseen Kobe Bryant footage up for auction
So stand-out in fact, that Bryant skipped college altogether, entering the NBA Draft as a 17-year old.
Now, 24 years later, over 22 hours of game and interview footage of Bryant from his time at Lower Merion High School in Philadelphia are set to go on auction. The majority of which has never been seen in public.
The treasure trove — set to be auctioned as a single lot — also includes high school footage of other iconic former and current professional athletes including LeBron James, Tom Brady, Shaquille O’Neal, Michael Phelps, Dwyane Wade and Ryan Braun.
