High School Height

It’s true that Brittney didn’t even start playing basketball until she attended Nimitz High School in Houston, Texas. She was 6 feet tall in her freshman year, but by the time she graduated, she was a 6’8 elite basketball star and every college in the state was trying to lure her to their school.

Two different players, overall, I'd say Kobe. Especially considering he's doing pretty good for his age, so he's durable. Plus he's an incredible shooter. Lebron won't last as long and is more of an athletic based player with inferior basketball skills to Kobe.

Jordan, I wouldn't even consider Lebron until his career is over so we can compare their achievements. So far, I'd say Jordan is the better basketball player, but Lebron is a true athlete, so they are very different on the court.
