Ranking the NBA's Best Players Under 25

It's all about 24 here. 

No, I'm not talking about the shot clock or Paul George's jersey number, both of which you can see up above. I'm not discussing Jack Bauer and his ability to save the world, either. 

That's the magic number here because players must be 24 or younger in order to qualify for the these rankings. If you've turned 25 already, you're out. 

Basketball is a young man's sport, even if veterans can still dominate the game. It's truly amazing just how many young studs we have in the NBA right now, as this top-10 list is absolutely stacked.

With only five honorable mentions, we have plenty of players, like Kawhi Leonard, Jimmy Butler and Anthony Davis, who I feel terrible about leaving off. 

But c'est la vie. The NBA wouldn't have it any other way.
