Top Young Stars in the NBA

NBA

Most of the young stars in the league may not be all-stars, making the playoffs, or even the best player on their team. The young stars in the NBA show immense promise with a high ceiling. Along with staying away from significant injuries at the start of their career.

We have seen plenty of stars in the past that have had career-ending injuries, even MVP-caliber young stars like Derrick Rose. Although some of these stars have dealt with minor injuries in the past, each one has excelled on the court in a short amount of time.

Luka Doncic

Luka Doncic is one of the best players in the NBA right now, at only 23 years old. His unearthly ability to put the ball in the hoop since he joined the league has quickly brought into the spotlight. Doncic was criticized at first for not being able to lead a team, but that was quickly silenced in the 2022 playoffs, where the Dallas Mavericks to the conference finals.

Doncic hasn’t averaged under twenty points since coming into the league in 2018 and has only increased his averages since then. It’s not only Doncic’s scoring ability that puts him ahead of other young stars. Doncic’s playmaking is second to none and has leadership like no other.

Ja Morant

Ja Morant came into the league in 2019 and, since then, has been on a mission to take the league by storm. Morant quickly became one of the most exciting players to watch in the NBA as he seems to try to dunk on every center in the league as a point guard. Not only has Morant brought the Memphis Grizzlies back from a rebuild, but also made them a contending team.

In his third season in the league, Morant made a huge jump going from averaging nineteen points to a scary twenty-seven points. While also averaging seven in two out of the three years, with the one other year being only six. Morant has truly already made his mark on the league and should continue to grow in the coming years.

Trae Young

Said to be the second coming of Stephen Curry, Trae Young’s villain arc in the NBA has been riveting to watch. As the point guard for the Atlanta Falcons, Young has led the team to a conference finals where he would leave his mark. The Falcons would win the series 4-1 in a gentlemen’s sweep as Trae Young would wave off the Madison Square Garden after ending the Knicks season.

Young has averaged over twenty-five points in the past three seasons while attempting eight three-pointers a game. Trae Young is only 24, so he has lots of time to develop and take the league by storm.
