    Most players do. Did you look at some of their weights? Kareem was 7-2 and only 200lbs. It is hard to put on a lot of muscle when your body is still growing.

    Two players that come to my mind as being hyped big time coming out of high school & I had been hearing about them for a couple of years were two players that never amounted to anything.

    1 Eddy Curry

    2 Dejuan Wagner

    The thing about Hype, it's relative to time and location.

    Gawd, I remember all of the Eddy Curry/Tyson Chandler hype when they were both in high school. It was about the same time that Shaq was dominating the NBA so everyone was looking for the next Shaq. Fox Sports Net(?) even had some season-long documentary on Curry's HS team.
