Illinois

Anthony Davis

Quincy Miller (played HS ball out of state though)

Robert Covington

Iman Shumpert

Evan Turner

Derrick Rose

Patrick Beverly

Julian Wright (lol)

Deandre Liggins

Shannon Brown

Shaun Livingston

D Wade (graduated in 2000 so he counts right?)

= may not be the best, but damn good.

Side Note: I will never sleep on the northwest/ Seattle area again, so they deserve a mention.

Overall I'll have to think,

Overall I'll have to think, but Chicago is on a roll with top picks.

Derrick rose #1 pick

Anthony Davis #1 pick

Jabari Parker possibly #1 this year

Cliff Alexander/Jahlil Okafor potential #1 in 2015

Not to mention guys like Eddy Curry, Julian Wright, Iman Shumpert, Stephen hunter, Quentin Richardson, bobby Simmons, Melvin Ely, Dwayne Wade, Tony Allen, Will Bynum, Patrick Beverly as guys who were either 1st rd picks or productive NBA players, that's a lota lot

If this is purely on high

If this is purely on high school hoops I would have to say its a close race between Chicago and btimore. For states I would say Texas

Toronto/Ontario is coming on

Toronto/Ontario is coming on strong and might be the best city/province/state/area for basketball within a couple years, if it isn't already.

Gordon Hayward
George Hill
Robbie Hummel
JaJuan Johnson
Courtney Lee
Sean May (UNC years)
Josh McRoberts
E'Twaun Moore
Greg Oden (think his healthy years)
Zach Randolph
Jeff Teague
Marquis Teague
Deshaun Thomas
Cody Zeller

This thread gets made a couple times a year and as always the correct answer is California if we are looking at states or Los Angeles area if we are looking at cities.

Chicago

Chicago as a City can put most of the USA to Shame.. Ask Calipari and Bill Self, when you want to win a championship you recruit Chicago... Anyone in recruiting will tell you Chicago brings up players better then any city..

Illinois

Chi-Town waddup! Although these two became busts in the league im surprised there was no love mentioned for either Darius Miles or Eddy Curry. They were both top 5 picks right outta High School and two of the more hyped prospects of their generation. Also special mention goes out to Will Bynum, lil' man was cold back then for Crane H.S. and Coach Longstreet.
