Greg Oden was the first 2006 high school boys basketball All-American drafted into the National Basketball Association.

An All-American team is an honorary sports team that is generally composed of the best amateur players of a specific season for each team position—who in turn are given the honorific "All-America" and typically referred to as "All-American athletes", or simply "All-Americans". The term is used in U.S. team sports to refer to players who are selected by members of the national media. Walter Camp selected the first All-America team in the early days of American football in 1889.[1]

Both the McDonald's All-American team selection and the Jordan Brand All-American team selection have associated high school basketball all-star games held in conjunction with them, in which the players are divided into two teams to compete in an exhibition game. The Jordan Brand held its first contest in 2002.[2] McDonald's All-Americans have competed in such contests since 1977, and a girls' game was added in 2002.[3] Both the Parade and USA Today lists include underclassmen, but fifth-year seniors are ineligible for the Parade team.[4] Those lists also both designate ordinal teams, designated as first team, second team, etc., while the McDonald's and Jordan Brand teams are selected without distinction among selectees. In basketball, some All-American teams are composed by position, while others are not.[5]

In 2006, 47 boys high school basketball players were selected to major honorary All-American teams. For the 2006 selections, McDonald's selected 24 players to its All-American team; the Jordan Brand included 21 players, and the USA Today All-USA prep basketball team had 15.[2][3][6] The list also includes the 40 Parade All-Americans, the largest of the four teams.[7] The 2006 class of McDonald's All-Americans is regarded as the best class of the decade, with approximately 22 of the 24 expected to make it to the National Basketball Association by the time they have exhausted their collegiate eligibility,[8] which in most cases is four years of competition in five years of enrollment.[9]

Sherron Collins, Kevin Durant, Wayne Ellington, Spencer Hawes, Tywon Lawson, Greg Oden, Brandan Wright and Thaddeus Young were named to all four lists. Among this group, Durant, Hawes, Lawson and Oden were selected to the first team of both organizations that enumerated their selections. Collins was the only one of these to go undrafted. Oden and Derrick Rose were both NBA Draft overall number-one selections, in 2007 and 2008, respectively. Gerald Henderson, Jr. was the highest selection in the 2009 NBA Draft (12th overall). Damion James and Stanley Robinson were the only selections from this group in the 2010 NBA Draft. Kyle Singler and Vernon Macklin were the final draftees from this group in the 2011 NBA Draft.
