NBA All-Star Players selected in HS for McDonalds All-American teams

The McDonald's All-American designation began in 1977. At the end of the high-school basketball season, top American players are selected to play in an All-Star Game with the players distributed in East-West teams. In this annual event boys also compete in slam dunk and three-point shooting contest. This is the starting point for some players that in a few years maybe could make their dreams come true and became NBA All-Stars.

Until 2018, there are 75 NBA All-Star players with prior HS All-American experience. The last additions to this list are Kemba Walker in 2017 and Karl-Anthony Towns and Bradley Beal in 2018.
Players in blue are still playing on the NBA.
