How were these NBA stars ranked in high school?

Recruiting rankings may be an inexact science, but for the most part, at least with the top-level players, they can be pretty indicative of future success; guys ranked in the Top-2 or -3 of their classes usually wind up achieving some sort of success as professionals.

JIMMY BUTLER, 2008: NO. 1253

Not only was All-Star wing Jimmy Butler the 1253rd-ranked player in his recruiting class, according to 247Sports, he was the 226th-ranked junior college prospect, to boot.

Talk about beating the odds.

Not a single junior college player ranked ahead of Butler on the list ended reaching the NBA. Butler, meanwhile, has played over 16,000 career minutes in the Association and has four All-Star appearances and two 3rd Team All-NBA’s to his name.
