Kobe Bryant was a better Highschool player than Lebron James.


Quote:
Bryant attended Lower Merion High School, after having spent a part of his childhood in Italy. While in high school, Bryant proved to be a star player on the courts, and earned enough honors and triumphs to make up for his lack of college basketball experience.

As a senior Kobe was voted USA Today and Parade Magazine's National High School Player of the Year and he led his team to Class AAAA state title with a 31-3 record. Kobe also broke records along the way. With an average of 30.8 points, 12 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 4.0 steals, 3.8 blocked shots per game, and a total of 2,883 points, Bryant became the leading scorer in Southeastern Pennsylvania history -- beating out previous records set by NBA great Wilt Chamberlain and Carlin Warley.

A four-year starter, Bryant was recognized for his innate basketball skills by being named Naismith Player of the Year, Gatorade Circle of Champions High School Player of the Year, and became a McDonald's All-America Team member.

Kobe was not a better HS player than LeBron James,you can look at the stats and all that.

LeBron was a 3-time 1st Team Parade All-American in HS,and had NBA hype oozing out of his pores as a HS JR.LeBron tried to enter the NBA Draft after his HS JR year do you realize that?


Now if we're talking about hype than neither is in the same league as OJ Mayo

Heres some quotes from Wikipedia for you:
Quote:
The first public mention of Mayo occurred in the Ashland (KY) Daily Independent in an article called 'Phenom' in the paper's January 21, 2001 edition, when Mayo was just a sixth grader. In that article he was listed as being a "6-foot-1 point guard with size 12 shoe".

Mayo commuted from Huntington to Rose Hill Christian, a private school in Ashland, Ky,since student athletes can play high school varsity sports as seventh-graders in Kentucky.[2] In the seventh grade, his statistics often dwarfed the production of players five years his senior. In his first game for his varsity team he scored 27 points, had seven rebounds and had three steals. He was a seventh grader playing against juniors and seniors in high school.

During his seventh grade year in January 2002, Mayo was mentioned in Sports Illustrated and on CBS Sportsline.com. There were also full articles in The Courier-Journal (Louisville, Kentucky), the Huntington, West Virginia Herald-Dispatch and USA Today.

Thats just middle school.

Yeah Kobe's vertical has been reported at 38 inches. The average NBA vertical is only 28. How is he not a great athlete? He is also very quick and he has amazing body control which is why he is able to make such difficult shots.

^^Once again,it depends on how athletically you play in a game.

Kobe did not play nearly as athletic as he really is in his games in HS.

Does anybody remember when T-Mac once played athletically?

OJ Mayo is already an NBA ready type of player beside the fact that he is way older than some of the young prospect in the 2008 NBA Draft. I still think some teams would still look at his Highschool and College credentials although i can see him dropping in the Draft Chart because of his attitude.

He would still be a safer pick for some lottery team in the NBA because they will have a Combo Guard that is already matured enough to play in the league.

True.

Bayless will be a Barbosa-type player in the NBA

If Bayless entered this year it would be very bad for him,he should stay 2-3 years and develop as an undersized SG rather than come out as a raw PG

Yeah I did from 10-12th grade and also Sonny Hill league where top talent in the city run against each other on teams. I played against Kobe before. I've seen dude pull Ricky Davis over Steve Nash more than once. He was also doing a lot of that And1 ish....come down left right left right dribble it fake like he throws a pass to the right meanwhile wraps it around your head catching it with the left. Dude was splitting two defenders and doing 180 tomahawk jams. I dont know what highlights people are seeing but from what I saw dude was great athletically.

note that i said AS OF NOW...to me, he is the only one who has shown he can be a sure-fire nba contributor right now other than gordon...but my problem with gordon is his size at the 2 and lack of point guard skills...my issue with mayo is his decision making and lack of development of point guard skills (although he claims magic to be his fav player)...my issue with rose is his still suspect jumper...bayless can score/shoot just about at will/as well as gordon, has the athleticism of rose, has shown point guard skills, and has shown the best competitive spirit out of all of them imo...
