Kobe Bryant Happy With No. 2 Pick After Lakers ‘Played Like Crap All Season’

The Los Angeles Lakers ended up with the second overall pick in this summer’s NBA Draft, and Kobe Bryant (while randomly attending a “Dancing With the Stars” taping Tuesday) was one happy guy.

The Black Mamba endured a third consecutive season-ending surgery, and watched an abominable Laker squad finish with a 21-61 record.

Meanwhile, in Minnesota, the Timberwolves’ front-office celebrated landing the top pick in the Draft Lottery.
