Players Who Are Clearly the Future of the NBA
Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA is stocked with young talent, and it comes in a vast array of shapes and sizes.

Just take a look at this year's All-Star rosters, which boast studs like Damian Lillard, Blake Griffin, John Wall and Paul George, players who are still forming identities at the professional level despite posting gaudy figures under the age of 25. 

Which leads us to the focus of this list: The following players were selected because they're currently younger than 25 years old and have credentials that suggest they'll be superstars—if they aren't already—in the near future. 

So for that reason, 25-year-old studs like Kevin Durant, Kevin Love, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, Derrick Rose and a host of others were omitted in an effort to shine a light on those who are achieving so much before the midway point of their 20s. 


All statistics are current as of Sunday, Feb. 2 and were retrieved from Basketball Reference or unless noted otherwise.
