2. Shaedon Sharpe

Even at 20 years old, Shaedon Sharpe is putting together an all-star caliber season.

He's 10th in the NBA in minutes played, having started every game for the Trail Blazers. He's averaging 17.7 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.0 steals.

Sharpe is one of only 44 players in NBA history to reach those numbers at age 20 or younger.

He's scored the eighth-most points among all Western Conference guards and is 15th in points per game. He's third in minutes per game, ninth in free-throw attempts and fifth in rebounds. If the best ability is availability, Sharpe is one of the top guards in the West.

But the rest of his totals aren't too shabby, either. When you're top 10 in multiple categories just below names like Luka Doncic and Devin Booker, you 're doing something right.


And it bears repeating - Sharpe is 20 years old and has played 104 NBA games. Maybe it won't be this year, but he's on his way to becoming a multiple-time all-star.
