Collin Sexton is an underrated young player who doesn't get enough attention. At only 22, he's currently averaging over 25 points per game. If he can keep up that level of scoring he would join an elite group.
Over the past 20 years, only nine players under the age of 23 have averaged 25 points per game for an entire season: LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose, Karl-Anthony Towns, Devin Booker, Trae Young, and Luka Doncic.
On the daily Locked On Cavaliers Podcast, host Chris Manning was joined by Brittany Mollis and Danny Cunningham to discuss the state of the Cavs. Moreover, how Collin Sexton is on the path to become an All-Star.
Chris Manning: Who's the player you most want to see how it plays out over the next 12 months?
Brittany Mollis: I know you think I'm gonna say Collin Sexton but because he's already proven so much to us. I don't need to see how this plays out. I have a good feeling about how is it gonna play out.
Danny Cunningham: The multi-time Player of the Week nominee?
Brittany Mollis: *laughter* Danny, I remember listening to Danny on ESPN, Cleveland, they were talking about the Cavs, and he said, ‘You know, I think there's a universe that exists where Collins Sexton is really good.'
Danny Cunningham: I said like an All-Star.
Brittany Mollis: He might be. The way he's playing now he might be.
Danny Cunningham: It exists, that universe exists.
Brittany Mollis: We're in that universe, this is not a simulation. Collin Sexton is on his way to becoming an All-Star.
