Reading Time: 2 minutesThe Boston Celtics are set to begin their series against the Toronto Raptors and are looking poised at making a championship run, but the Celtics are set to become the next dynasty of the league and here is why.

How Kobe Bryant Almost Landed in Boston

Reading Time: 3 minutesKobe Bean Bryant was drafted in the 1996 NBA offseason, in a draft that most considered to be a six-player draft, aka the “Super Six of ’96”. Kobe was not one of those top six. It is now considered to be one of, if not the, best draft classes of all time. Players like Allen Iverson, Ray Allen, Steve Nash, Peja Stojakovic and many more.
