I'm in the process of writing a piece for Bleacher Report on the top 50 young soccer players in the world which should be out this weekend. It got me thinking that it might be fun to do something like this for the NBA.

Unlike soccer, where players usually peak by the time they reach the age of 25, most basketball players hit their prime in the 25-30 range. I'm in the process of producing a list of players (25 and under) who represent the best young talent the NBA has to offer. These can either be guys that are already studs and will likely only get better, or guys that are starting to show signs of taking that next step.

Make as many suggestions as you like and I'll post a full article, with the full list, sometime next week.

Where can I comment?
