Actually, none of those players in the previous answer went to Duke. Howard skipped college, Shaq went to LSU (and he's out of the league, anyway), Jordan went to UNC (decidedly NOT Duke), and LJ didn't go to college ANYwhere. Carlos Boozer is still in the league, Mike Dunleavy is still in, and there should be a handful of others.
between 10,000- 5,000 player went to NBA and KENTUCKY has won 20 NCAA championship. KENTUCKY usually get #1 player in Recruiting for college basketball.
they either went to college after hign school and got a scholarship or some players went straight into NBA after high school
