Jeremy Lin and James Harden are rapidly becoming one of the most formidable backcourts in the NBA.

In them, the Houston Rockets have two superior playmakers who find ways to make an offensive impact both on and off the ball.

Most impressive? The fact that they're still so young.

Neither Lin nor Harden is even 25 yet, and they're already taking the league by storm. And they're not the only ones.

The Association is brimming with budding talent, but only a handful of teams can lay claim to two promising youths. Even fewer can say those young guns are on a mission to carve up opposing backcourts together.

We know what Lin and Harden are capable of, but which other developing guards are worth keeping our eyes on?

Experience often trumps youth in this league—just not here.
