*THIS LIST IS NOT YET COMPLETED*
Here is the sixth part of My Top Ten NBA Players Ages 25 or Younger at Every Position in the NBA! To be clear, the first slide is the 5th best at every position, and I will be counting down as the series continues. This is also obviously based off how good they currently are, and players must have played at least one game this season to qualify.
PG: Spencer Dinwiddie is averaging 17 points on decent efficiency and 5 assists off the bench. What sets him apart from the guys below him is the fact that he’s been one of the most clutch players in the league this season.
SG: Caris LeVert started off the season really strong before his injury, and since coming back has certainly fallen off a bit. He’s still averaging around the same numbers as Harris and Brown, but his ability to both rebound and pass gives him the edge.
SF: Josh started off the season strong as well, and has come back down to earth a bit; but is still better than the guys I put below him. Surprisingly his efficiency has dropped quite a bit as well (41% from field and 36% from 3), but he’s still a good defender.
PF: The PF position is really quite close from 3-5 and even from 2-7, but Lauri is averaging 19 points and 9 rebounds. What holds him back from being higher is efficiency and team success.
C: Clint Capela is a big reason the Rockets have been so successful this season, as the combination of Harden and Capela is virtually unstoppable in the pick and roll. Capela is amazing on fast breaks, plays stellar defense, is extremely efficient (yes, his shots are easy, but he’s effective nonetheless), is averaging 12.5 rebounds, and is winning a lot of games.
Thoughts? Anything you would change?
