3 Best Shooting Guards 5 Years From Now
This is part 2 in my series that shows what 3 players will be the best at their individual position. This slideshows shows who the 3 best shooting guards will be 5 years from now. This slideshow in particular could have some controversial picks. This list may or may not include Kobe Bryant or Dwayne Wade.
This kid is already in my opinion a top 5 shooting guard in the league already. His game is very smooth. A great scorer, clutch player, franchise player, and a great locker room guy. He came in and changed a culture within the Portland Trailblazers. The sky is the limit for this 25 year old.
He is in my opinion one of the top 5 best young players in the league. He has a bright future ahead of him. He and Rudy Gay could become one of the elite scoring duo's in the NBA. He is a clutch player. He is a leader that is unafraid to take the last shot in a close game. He is already becoming a great scorer in the league despite his young age. He has become one the most lethal jumpshooters in the league despite the fact that he just came off of a stellar rookie season. Could become one of the leagues elite talents. (Just my opinion)
Kobe Bryant/ Dwayne Wade (tie)
The reason why these two are tied is because I have no clue how good they will be 5 years from now. Dwayne Wade is the most injury prone superstar that I've ever seen besides Tracy McGrady. Whenever I watch ESPN during the NBA season I always see that he has a strained shoulder or something like that. I know I'm not alone. This makes me question how much more punishment his body can take before it gives out on him. Kobe Bryant on the other hand will be 36 years old 5 years from now. That is why they are tied for this spot.
Eric Gordon (Honorable Mention)
He came off of a stellar rookie season. I think that he could become a very good player in the league. I think that he was often looked over because, the team he played on was awful.
