NY has a decent amout of NBA names.

Hall of Famers from NY City - Kareem, Bob Cousy, Tiny Archibald, Billy Cunningham, Connie Hawkins, Vinny Johnson, Lenny Wilkins, Bob Wanzer, Dolph Schayes

Other Notable player from NY City
Bernard King, Chris Mullin, Clifford Robinson, Taj Gibson, Malik Sealy, Mario Elie, Sam Perkins, Randy Smith, Rod Strickland, Jamal Mashburn, Lamar Odom, Ron Artest, Elton Brand, Brendan Haywood, Roy Hibbert, Charlie Villanueva, Stephon Marbury, Joakim Noah, Kenny Andrson, Kenny Smith, Jamaal Tinsley, Rodney McKray,

Also about Kobe he grew up in Europe from the age of 6 till what high school?
