What did the scouting report say about today's NBA All-Stars before they became the household names they are now? It's fascinating to look back in an attempt to answer that question. 

From the conclusion of Carmelo Anthony's high school season in 2002 to Kyrie Irving's graduation in 2010, the high school scouting reports of 13 All-Stars have been highlighted.

As a note, these high school reports are different from those that were eventually generated in the pre-draft camp process. I was able to find those reports for players like David Lee and Rajon Rondo, but not an actual transcript of their high school report.

Similarly, when All-Stars like Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan where in high school during the mid-'90s, the majority of those reports were originally printed on paper.  

Tony Parker's, meanwhile, was printed in French.

Others not included, like Dwyane Wade, were omitted because not much was written about them as high school ballers. Wade was only recruited by Marquette, Illinois State and DePaul coming out of high school, and he didn't truly break onto the national scene until college. 

These 13 All-Stars were on the national radar since their high school days, though, and stayed on it ever since.

Each is listed according to his high school graduating class.
