Is the class of 2004 the greatest H.S class of all time?
Is this 2004 High school class the deepest and best class of all time?
Dwight Howard, Josh Smith, Rajon Rando, Rudy Gay, Al Jefferson, J.R Smith, Al Horford, Joakim Noah, Marvin Williams, LeMarcus Aldridge, Roy Hibbert,Jeff Green,Dorrell Wright, Big Baby Davis, Nick Young,Toney Douglas,Ramon Sessions
Arron Afflalo, Jordan Farmar, Kyle Lowry, Daniel Gibson,Rodney Stuckey,Sebastian Telfair,Shaun Livingston,Corey Brewer
This class has got to make a case. It includes:
Derrick Rose, Michael Beasley, OJ Mayo, Kevin Love, Danillo Gallinari (he would have been in this class were he in school in the US), Eric Gordon, Jerryd Bayless, Anthony Randolph, Michael Beasley, JJ Hickson, Kosta Koufous, Deandre Jordan (All Draft Class 2008)
Blake Griffin, James Harden, Jonny Flynn, Austin Daye, James Johnson, Jeff Teague, DeJuan Blair, Patty Mills (Class 2009 draft)
Evan Turner, Cole Aldrich, Patrick Patterson, LARRY SANDERS!!!!!!, James Anderson (Class 2010 draft)
Jimmer!, Marshon Brooks, THE MANIMAL (Faried), Kyle Singler, Norris Cole, Jimmy Butler, Chandler Parsons, Jon Leuer, Charles Jenkins, Etwaun Moore (Draft Class 2011)
Trevor Mbakwe is also from this class. Apparently Lavoy Allen is from this class too. So is Festus Ezeli.
Not to mention Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are the same ages of people that should have been in the HS class of 2007. Needless to say, this class is LOADED.
The class of 07 is really the only one that I think could rival 04 definitely.
I think 04 is a little more deep but 07 is obviously an amazing class really hard to tell but I give the slight edge to 04 Imo
I think these are nearsighted. What about a class before 99?
The classes of 80' and 81' were really good.
The 80 class included- Michael Jordan, John Stockton, Clyde Drexler, Alvin Robinson, Otis Thorpe, Kevin Willis, Sam Perkins, and Doc Rivers.
The 81 class had- Hakeem Olajuwon, Charles Barkley, Patrick Ewing, Joe Dumars, Xavier Mcdaniels, Chris Mullins, Detlet Schrempf, Charles Oakley, and Terry Porter.
Wow that 81 class is incredible with 4 HOF
As far as depth though I don't know who else it has..04 has a lot of current stars in it..It seems like classes like 95 or 80 are really top heavy and then the rest were like good college players i.e Lester Earl in 95
What's crazy is that in that 04 class Telfair had the most hype.
Mbakwe is the 07 class?!?! How old can you be while playing D1 ball?
apparently going into your 30's?
5 years to complete 4 year eligibility, whenever you start. And you can get injury waivers, which Mbakwe did. But if you enter late, say from military , prison, or a bad life, you could be in your 30's graduating. Bernard James ewas drafted at 28 years old last year.
1995.....I like them at the top. Marbury, Billips, Antwan Jamison, Vince, KG, Paul Pierce, Abdur-Rahim, and Ron Mercer. They would hold their own against any class........but 04 and 81 were mean as well.
