If you just want to see the best players become the best, then I think you definitely wan't SOME players coming out of high school. Think of the 10 best players of the Decade (Iverson, Kobe, Shaq, Wade, Lebron, KG, TMac, Kidd, Nash, Duncan) Four were coming out of highschool. Are 40% of the NBA players coming out of High school? No, its because College ball is so different from NBA ball, and getting that extra 2-3 years of experience in the NBA and having much better competition makes a huge difference. I don't think Lebron or KG would be anything like the players they are coming out of College.
