NBA Draft 2012: 3 Final Four Prospects That Could Carry the Torch from Kobe

Will anyone playing in this weekend's Final Four approach Kobe's accomplishments?

As usual, this year's Final Four is comprised of talented college basketball teams and those four teams—Kentucky, Louisville, Kansas and Ohio State—are all loaded with potential future NBA players. 

How good will the NBA players from these teams be? Starters? Stars? Superstars? Icons? Are there any future NBA icons playing in New Orleans this weekend?

The odds are that there aren't. The reason guys like Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Michael Jordan and Tim Duncan are such iconic players is because there aren't players like that on display at every Final Four or even every other Final Four. 

Guys like Kobe are rare. However, there are three players who will be on display this weekend who can become true NBA superstars. Will they be as talented as Bryant? Probably not, but if you had to pick some guys with a slight chance to enter that unique level of play then these three guys would be the ones you would pick.
