Decade to Decade Part 1…Five on Five… 90’s vs. 2000-10

It’s always interesting to match up talent from different decades and debate who would take the crown.  A great match would definitely have the top 5 high school basketball players from the 90’s square off against the best from 2000-10.  Starting off with the 90’s, who can argue that Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett hold the top two spots.

The next three in open opinion should be Ronnie Fields, Tracy Mcgrady, and Vince Carter.   Those final 3 are debatable but would win out in most arguments.

Moving up to the period of 2000-10, Lebron James would obviously take the number one spot.

The next four in no necessary order would be Carmelo Anthony, Derrick Rose, Amare Stoudemire, and Greg Oden.

Fans must remember that we are talking high school basketball only and these listed players were more dominant in their decades than any other players.  Pick a neutral site, Rucker Park maybe, and the magnitude of this matchup would parallel any athletic battle in amateur athletic history.
