Kobe Bryant willing to mentor Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins

Published Add your comment

Kobe Bryant has exclaimed on twitter that he would be willing to mentor NBA hopefuls Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins.

Bryant was asked about the possibility of either of the two freshman joining the Lakers next season and the NBA superstar responded by tweeting: "both have great potential. Id mentor either one"

The NBA draft is still months away and the basketball world is currently caught up in the whirlwind that is the NCAA tournament but speculation of the potential of Parker and Wiggins continues to grab headlines and they have both just received approval from one of the greatest players to ever play the game.

The Lakers have a 1st round pick in the 2014 NBA draft and with the way the team is performing this year, it seems as though the franchise may be in position to make a selection of one of the few talents considered to be franchise altering players.

Bryant recently signed an extension with the Lakers that will see the 35-year-old shooting guard stay in Los Angeles through the 2015-16 NBA season.

The Lakers are obviously surrounded with fantastic teams in the gruelling Western Conference and for the sake of the Lakers and Kobe himself, he will be hoping the new players he is joined by next season will progress quickly enough that Bryant will have an opportunity at gaining his 6th Championship ring.

If either Parker or Wiggins have any sense they will jump at the opportunity to work with one of the greatest competitors to ever grace the hardwood, they will receive invaluable experience under the tutelage of Bryant that will ready them further for the NBA.
