With Kobe Bryant's talk about retirement recently and the obvious dearth in shooting guards in the NBA right now, I figured I would post two videos of high school players who had similar athleticism and skills set to when Bryant was coming out of school: Archie Goodwin and Gary Harris.

Gary Harris: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRbOEEF9x9U

Archie Goodwin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ng1SYltU5FA

Do you see the resemblances with both players?

Share your thoughts and make any other comparisons of other top high school players if you want as well.

1. Nerlens Noel-Poor Man's Anthony Davis
2. Shabazz Muhammed-Andre Iguodala
3. Isaiah Austin-Perry Jones the Third/Anthony Randolph
4. Kaleb Tarczewski- Serge Ibaka
5. Kyle Anderson- Homeless man's Magic Johnson
6. Rodney Purvis-Iman Shumpert

I personally think Gary Harris resembles Kobe Bryant the most because of his athleticism.

Archie Goodwin is more of a Marshon Brooks type of player.

Anthony Davis hasn't made a name in this league yet?

You should change that to Dwight Howard

I wanted to make NBA comparisons.

Noels is as much an enigma as Davis is right now.

They both could be as good as Howard, but I doubt that happens.

Shabazz is by far a better shooter than Iggy. His game is more comparable to James Harden if anything

I like Archie Goodwin he's got a nice game. He's more like a D-Wade type to me

Noel is Anthony Davis 5.0 .

Kid is gonna be a beast.

Their games aren't really that similar, Davis' skill set is much more advanced due to him being a guard his whole life. Noel can block shots and rebound, but can't be counted on for offense at this point.

I would say Goodwin has more Kobe like tendencies, His build looks like kobes when he was in highschool. Harris on the other hand not as much. he reminds me of Bradley Beal more than anyone.

I think he is more athletic than Bradley Beal. Remember, he has the chance to grow as well another inch or two.

Harris looks solid. He looks like Kyrie Irving or Eric Gordon. Well see how he develops.

As the next:

Kobe : Westbrook

Davis : We'll see how he does this year

Magic : Lebron

Harris reminds me of the next Bradley Beal now that I've taken a better look at him.
