It may feel like cheating to include Morant on this list because of his youth but he is a brilliant player. First, he outshone Zion Williamson to win the Rookie of the Year Award. Now he’s helping the Grizzlies develop into a respectable team and hopes to take the next step shortly (via ESPN).
Meanwhile, he earned high praise from Kevin Durant who described him as a “one-of-a-kind player.” It’s rare for Durant to speak positively about an opposition star but Morant earned this. The point guard is an electric talent and has already achieved a lot in his young career. Hopefully, one day he will win an NBA ring and fulfill his dreams.
