Is it just me or is it a bit disrespectful to place Zion so high with 0 pro games played?

Nah, most players on top only had 1 good year, so its not like they are way more proven. Surprised Devin Booker is below Tatum, but I know his defensive metrics are very bad.

That’s top 5 not 23.

Tatum only gets in that list because he tells everyone how good he's going to be in future.
He's all self-hype and empty promises, and in reality he's just a Harrison Barnes, or worse :D
Booker is twice as good as Tatum.

Man it is so disrespectful to see Jamal Murray at 6 below Booker and Fox when Murray was a 2nd option on a team that went to Game 7 of the 2nd round last year. The Suns won freaking 19 games, and Fox isn't at the level of Murray yet, no way. Murray had a fantastic playoffs and he'll be much higher on this list if they did a similar concept.

Luka and Zion I actually agree with. When you're a generational talent like those two, you should be 1 and 2. Yes, even with Zion not playing an NBA game yet.

Article is heavily biased towards offensive players. Adebayo and Allen should be in the top 10. How does Kevin Huerter get in but the aforementioned centers don't?

Kind of a weak list tbh. Not that many potential superstars there

This list is absolutely awful so I feel it's not even worth commenting on but Zach Collins Zach Collins Zach Collins.

We have a lot of nice young talent in the league though... Most ever maybe?

Go ahead, post your ranking of top players. Post it on the internet and let me know how many people give a damn.

Doncic will never stop haunting Atlanta fans. He's also about to be in top20 in the RealGM poll.

Jarrett Allen not being on this list is a joke, and John Collins is rated way too low.
