Javaris Crittenton attended Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy, where as a high school sophomore he played alongside Dwight Howard. Crittenton and Howard led Southwest Atlanta to the GHSA class A state championship that season. Howard would later go on to be the first overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft after turning professional directly out of high school. As a junior Crittenton averaged 28.4 points, 7.5 assists, and 8.2 rebounds. He led Southwest Atlanta to the GHSA class A state final again where they lost, finishing the season as the runner-up.As a senior Crittenton averaged 29 points, 9 assists, and 7 rebounds and led Southwest Atlanta to the GHSA class A state championship. Following the season he was named a McDonald's All American. He was also named Mr. Georgia Basketball. Crittenton was an exceptional student in high school who had a 3.5 GPA and was a member of the Future Business Leaders of America and the Senior Beta Club. After being courted by several colleges Crittenton ultimately chose local Georgia Tech, in part to allow his mother and little sister to be able to attend his games.

Really amazing to me that a guy with such a background would turn into a thug once he gets to the NBA.

Almost eeirly similar to Michael Ray Richardson or Josh Hamilton who each were good kids who got off track as soon as they became professionals with the benefits of fame, money, & a lack of parental discipline.
