Reminiscing On Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Tracy McGrady, & Amare Stoudemire Dominating High School Hoops

Imagine being a high school senior, suiting up for your Friday night varsity game, and having to guard Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Tracy McGrady, or Amare Stoudemire.

Imagine being a high school senior, suiting up for your Friday night varsity game, and having to guard Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Tracy McGrady, or Amare Stoudemire.

After all, you are 17 and a member of your varsity squad. They are prep superstars with a ticket punched for the NBA. One word: mismatch.

The evening isn’t pretty. You get dunked-on. Your shots get swatted out of the Western Hemisphere. Your ankles get amputated off killer-crossovers. And you can’t possibly keep up with their no-look dimes.

Years later, home videos surface and that painful night is available for public viewing. Hey, nobody said high school was easy.

Of course, Bryant, Garnett, McGrady, and Stoudemire have embarrassed pro players, so these high school kids should feel no shame. Still, it’s fun to hit rewind and relive their prep glory.
