The NBA’s Top 23 Players Under 23
There is a handful of talented young players who have not even come close to their prime yet. Players like Anthony Davis and Giannis Antetokounmpo just missed the cutoff on this list, but here are the top 23 players in the NBA under the age of 23.
23. Trae Young, Atlanta Hawks
Young was a controversial player coming out of Oklahoma. The rookie has drawn comparisons to Steph Curry because of his quick release and ability to shoot from anywhere on the floor. It is not a fair comparison because he is not as efficient as the two-time MVP but he is a player with a lot of potential in a point guard driven league.
22. John Collins, Atlanta Hawks
Young’s teammate on the Hawks has folks in Atlanta excited for the future. The ability for Collins to dominate in a pick-and-roll game makes his game unique in this league. He has contributed back to back games with a double-double. Despite missing games in the beginning of the season due to injury, Collins is one of the league’s top sophomore.
