With a plethora of top prospects around the league already having made an impact, the NBA has a lot of questions left to answer.
Here are the 10 players who have the best NBA dreams right now: 1.
Anthony Davis Anthony Davis is one of the most talented players in the NBA right now.
After leading the Kings to the playoffs last season, Davis was named to the All-Star Game and was voted as a finalist for Rookie of the Year.
In fact, Davis could have been the first player to be named a finalists for the MVP since Magic Johnson in 1994.
Davis is the most popular player in the league right now and has the best potential to break into the MVP conversation if he continues to develop.
Kyrie Irving Kyrie is one step closer to the NBA Hall of Fame.
With a stellar rookie season, Irving has blossomed into a star, averaging 17.8 points, 7.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 2.5 steals and 1.5 blocks per game in his first season in Cleveland.
While he’s still young, Irving is one to watch and is a solid player who is a fan favorite for his antics.
Kevin Durant Kevin Durant has been a staple of the Oklahoma City Thunder for years now.
He’s a big man with a ton of athleticism who is constantly in the headlines for his insane scoring and playmaking abilities.
Durant has also become one of several players to break out as a free agent after the 2013-14 season, landing a two-year, $65 million contract with the Golden State Warriors.
Durant is still one of my favorite players to watch, and he could be a solid candidate to be a finalistic MVP candidate in the coming years.
Draymond Green The 6-foot-7 Green has a ton going on for him right now, including a career-best season as the best pure scorer in the game, leading the league in scoring at 17.4 points per game and making 48.3 percent of his 3-point attempts.
Green also ranks second in the Western Conference in scoring, and while his offensive numbers are trending downwards, Green has the ability to dominate in the paint and attack the basket at will.
Damian Lillard The Portland Trail Blazers are already in the top five in points per 100 possessions, and Lillard is a beast on both ends of the floor.
He leads the NBA in assists, is second in rebounds and is third in blocked shots per game.
His versatility and size make him a force to be reckoned with, and his ability to score in bunches is already making him a top-10 scorer.
Kawhi Leonard Kawhi has been nothing short of a superstar for the San Antonio Spurs this season, and if he stays healthy, he could have a Hall of Famer’s career in front of him if he keeps his current level of play.
Leonard’s incredible scoring ability is a perfect fit for San Antonio, and the Spurs could be in the driver’s seat for a top seed in the West.
James Harden James Harden has been in the MVP discussion for years, and with his incredible scoring prowess, the Houston Rockets are one of a few teams in the East that could have the potential to win a title this year.
His shooting is deadly and he can score from anywhere on the floor, and as a point guard, he’s one of those players who can move the ball around the floor and score in multiple ways.
Damian Jones The Golden State Bulls have had a tremendous run this season and are now tied for the best record in the conference, so it’s no surprise that they are in a very good position.
With the addition of Jimmy Butler and Derrick Rose, the Bulls are now in a good position to contend for the championship, which would be something of a coup considering how close they came to doing it last year.
DeMarcus Cousins DeMarcus is a great player and I don’t think there’s a more versatile player in this league than Cousins.
He can play center or power forward, and even at 6-6, the 6-10 forward can score with either foot.
Cousins could become one the best players in basketball in the future, and it’s all thanks to his defensive game and his offensive game.
Karl-Anthony Towns Towns is one hell of a scorer, and is one the most versatile players in this game right now with the ball in his hands.
He is a fantastic scorer at the rim and can hit 3s off the dribble, and when he’s able to attack the rim with either his size or athleticism, he can be devastating in any situation.
He could be the first big man to break the 3-pointers in this century, and I think he’ll get there.
