That's a first. 4 of the top 10 NBA players are from CA. 6 out of the Top 25 players are from CA (Jrue Holiday and Russell Westbrook). This ranking doesn't take into Klay Thompson (Los Angeles, CA) due to his injury but he's easily a Top 15 player at worst. It's not a coincidence when he went down, the Warriors went down too. Kawhi Leonard (Riverside, CA) James Harden (Los Angeles, CA) Paul George (Los Angeles, CA) Damian Lillard (Oakland, CA) https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2019/sports/nba-top-100-players-2019/ 2020 recruiting class features 4 CA players in the top 10 Evan Mobley #1 Jalen Green #3 Ziaire Williams #5 Makur Maker #10 It would be 6 out in the top 20 if you include Josh Christopher (#11) and B.J. Boston (#12) http://www.espn.com/college-sports/basketball/recruiting/playerrankings/_/view/espnu100 2019 did not feature any CA players in the top 10 but did have 2 in the Top 20 (Onyeka Okungwu and Isaiah Mobley) http://www.espn.com/college-sports/basketball/recruiting/playerrankings/_/class/2019/order/true If anything SoCal is seeing a resurgence in high school basketball Peete2Affholter and drheisenberg like this.
