5 Players with Superstar Potential

5 Players who will eventually be All-Stars

 

  1. Andrew Wiggins

Andrew Wiggins has always been projected to be a future superstar since the 8th grade, and so far he hasn’t disappointed. Averaging 20 ppg this season, Wiggins has showed some elite scoring ability to go with superstar level athleticism also.

2. Giannis Antetokounmpo

Giannis Antetokounmpo might have the highest ceiling on this list. Standing 6’11”, possessing huge hands, and the wingspan of a condor, Giannis is physically superior than a lot of players in the league. He has a good basketball IQ and can literally play any position on the court. The scary part is, he’s only 21 and in his 3rd season in the NBA. He has so much room to grow, if he can tweak his jumpshot some more, he may eventually  become an unstoppable force.

3. Karl Anthony-Towns

With great size and elite skill, this Kentucky product is already making his presence known in the NBA. The obvious candidate for ROTY averaging 18 points and 10 rebounds per game, Anthony-Towns has the chance to become an All-Star big man in the future.

   4.Zach LaVine

Based on athleticism alone, LaVine is already in the upper echelon. The back to back dunk champion can become really special if he keeps working hard.  With a good jumper and phenomenal leaping ability, he has a solid foundation to add on to. There are a lot of people skeptical about his game, but I hope Zach can prove doubters wrong in the ears to come.

5. Anthony Davis

NBA: Utah Jazz at New Orleans Pelicans

I didn’t even want to put Davis on this list becuase I feel he’s already on that superstar level, but the fact of the matter is that he can go even higher.Davis’s stat lines read like a comic book, making for an endless number of mind-boggling numbers one could use to highlight his greatness. I doubt that there’s been a big man more dominant than this in the NBA for a solid decade or so. I can definitely say with confidence that Anthony Davis is going to get an MVP in the years to come, it’s just a matter of time.
