Default Which NBA players did not make their High School team?

I know Michael Jordan, obviously. But who else is known to not make their High School team?

Allen Iverson didn't play his senior year. I know that has nothing to do with MAKING the team, but still interesting.
Anyways, sorry no answer to the original question.

if i remember correctly, he didn't play because he got arrested in highschool, it was a big racial issue as well, and so the governor of virginia granted him clemency, but said he couldn't play any sports in his senior year.

nice try though.

He even mentioned it in his hall of fame speech. Saying he wanted to show that he deserved that spot on varsity.

Jordan made the junior team when he was a junior and the senior team when he was a senior. It's supposed to be a big deal that he didn't make the senior team when he was a junior.

... Isn't that the way it went?

No, he was cut by varsity freshman year and played JV. Then played varsity every year after that.
