Garnett leads the pack here with a little over 2,000 blocks. Dwight Howard is climbing the leaderboard and soon he could take over the blocks lead from Garnett. A blast from the past, “Chocolate Thunder”, Darryl Dawkins (1,023) is still hanging in the top 10 for blocks by high school draftees. As a lifelong 76ers fan, I remember Dawkins shattering a couple of NBA backboards. Dawkins sure was a character.
Even as a big man, Garnett can “dish the rock”. He is currently in 3rd place where he will probably remain for the foreseeable future trailing only LeBron James (6,346) and Kobe Bryant (6,138). See, Kobe does pass the ball on occasion. :)
Finally, here is a table with details for each player.
As you analyze the data, use the comments section below to tell me which player’s stats surprised you. Where would you rank Garnett among all high school draftees? I have him third behind Kobe and LeBron.
