10 High Schools That Have Produced The Most NBA Players In History

Take a look around the NBA today. If you try to make a connection to the high school game, and on the résumés of some players, you'll notice a few programs around the country that have become contemporary powerhouses.

Out in New Jersey, the successes of former teammates Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Kyrie Irving highlight the prowess of Elizabeth's Saint Patrick High School.

Across the river and over the bridge in Brooklyn, the legends of Sebastian Telfair, Stephon Marbury and Lance Stephenson color the legacy of Brooklyn's Abraham Lincoln High School.

Out in California, the longevity of Tayshaun Prince and Tyson Chandler are just two of the many great stories Manuel Dominguez High School's athletic program have to tell, while Derrick Rose, Jabari Parker and the tragic story of Ben Wilson make Simeon Career Academy a household name among true basketball junkies.

But then there's another special group that comes to mind. Around the United States, there are a select number of schools whose penchant for producing NBA talent has transcended.

Whether it is by pure chance or a product of conscious work, these programs make up the list of high schools that have produced the most NBA players in history:
