It is my understanding that Lenny Wilkens only played half a season at Boys High because his buddy Tommy Davis talked him into it. So if you're gonna add him, might as well add Michael Jordan who was born in Brooklyn but moved to NC as a child. Also, if you just count best high school players, I never saw them play in HS but just going by their reputations and accomplishments, Dwayne "The Pearl" Washington from Boys High (actually did see him on TV a few times), Syracuse, Nets first draft choice, Albert King was even rated higher than Bernard, Stephon Marbury, Fly Williams and I'm probably forgetting a few that might belong there.
