Predicting the 10 NBA stars who will still be dominant in five years

10 of 10

1) Victor Wembanyama

The most prized prospect since Lebron has lived up to every bit of the hype. Earlier this week, Wemby posted the following stat line in a win over the Raptors: 27 pts, 14 reb, 5 ast, 10 blk, 2stl on 10-14 shooting. He only played 29 minutes.

Per ESPN, Wemby is just the 5th player to ever post that stat line, joining Hakeem Olajuwon, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, David Robinson and Ralph Sampson. He also became the first player to ever post 10 blocks and 5 assists in under 30 minutes. The things Wemby is doing are not even normal for all time greats, and he is doing them in his rookie campaign.

Wemby’s per game averages are now 20.4 ppg, 10.1 rpg as well as a league leading 3.2 bpg, all while playing barely over 28 minutes on average. As a 20 year old, he has already shown the ability to be the number one option on offense while still being one of the league's very best defenders.

As Wemby continues to develop over the next few seasons, there is no telling what his ceiling ultimately will be. Assuming the Spurs are able to surround him with the necessary talent to help enhance his skillset, it almost feels inevitable that he will be the best player in the sport by the time he celebrates his 25th birthday.
