Fans and media often speculate what college Bryant or any other superstar would have picked had they been required to play college basketball. Luckily, Kobe revealed the college he would have attended if he didn't go straight from high school to the NBA.

Back in 2013, Kobe had a discussion with Jimmy Kimmel and he told Kimmel that he would have gone to North Carolina. The urban legend was that Kobe would have played for Duke and Coach K, but he said, he was leaning toward North Carolina. "I love [Duke Coach Mike Krzyzewski]," "The truth has to come out."
Kimmel asked Bryant, Why North Carolina? Vince Carter, a Tar Heel, was one of the top guards in the country at the time. "I want to play against him, every single day," Bryant said.
This rumor has been laid to rest for a few years but it has surfaced again after Bryant went to Twitter. He was asked if he were to go to college which school would he choose.
It appears that Bryant would have chosen Duke over North Carolina. Adding another element to the best rivalry in college basketball.Back to the NBA Newsfeed
