12 @ 12: Best preps-to-pros

The list of players that left high school early to go to the NBA is smaller than you think. However, there are some great names on the list. In fact, the two most recognizable names on the list are also the two best players in the game today. Who else made our list of the best preps-to-pros?

1. Kobe Bryant
2. LeBron James
3. Kevin Garnett
4. Dwight Howard
5. Amare Stoudemire
6. Tracy McGrady
7. Rashard Lewis
8. Josh Smith
9. Al Jefferson
10. Monta Ellis
11. Jermaine O’Neal
12. J.R. Smith


  1. In the modern era, sorry i should have clarified that. My mistake. Where would you put Moses Malone on this list?

  2. I put him at #5. Hard to argue KG's versatility and Howard is a beast. NBA title gives him the nod over Amare and he was more dominant than the rest of the crew.
