In an attempt to sort out the talent in the NBA by age, here are some power rankings for the top 20-year-olds in the association right now.
The NBA is a fantastic league because of its stars, but all that talent is only enhanced by the fact that basketball superstardom isn’t confined by age. Whether you’re a 19-year-old rookie or a 38-year-old fading talent, the NBA is made by its biggest names, highest risers and best shot-makers.
But with so much talent at so many different ages, it can be hard to keep track of how much room for growth certain players have. Most of the all-time greats have peaked in the 27-30 range, but as the NBA continually gets younger, we’re always looking to the younger 20s for the next superstar.
In the interest of sorting it all out, it’s time to take a look at the young and the old, and rank each and every player at each and every age in the NBA.
Since the league continues to get younger and younger, we’re going to start this series at the bottom and work out way up. We started yesterday with the 19-year-olds, so today we’ll be moving on to the 15 20-year-olds in the association right now. Here’s the power rankings for some of the youngest players in the NBA who still can’t legally purchase alcohol yet.
