Default LeBron, Mayo, Or Kobe?

Each player coming straight out of high school, looking at their high school career's only, who would you take?
Senior years in high school:
LeBron James:
PPG:31.6
RPG:9.6
APG:4.6
SPG:3.4
Kobe Bryant:
PPG:30.8
RPG:12.0
APG:6.5
SPG:4.0
OJ Mayo:
PPG:28.8
RPG:8.8
APG:5.8
SPG:5.0

Listed O.J.'s Juniour year stats, because I couldnt find his senior year statistics for some reason. I think Mayo's stats were alot better in his senior year though.

Lebron... he was obviously more NBA ready than Bryant and I don't think Mayo would have the same impact coming in.

I'll go with Kobe because Kobe seemed more NBA ready imo...It wasn't to coming to the NBA that Bron developed into the all around player he is now...Lebron couldn't shoot and now he has developed point guard skills..

At the very start of his career, yes. Also, LeBron played the PG position at St.Vincent-St.Mary's.

Kobe didn't even start as a rookie, Lebron carried a team.

are you seriously suggesting that Kobe came into the league more NBA ready than Lebron?
