It’s NBA playoff time, when legends are born. Some young players are taking the opportunity to cement their reputations as superstars in the league. Kevin Durant won his second consecutive scoring title this season at the age of 22 and continued to sizzle, dropping 41 points in the Thunder’s Game 1 victory over Denver. Teammate Russell Westbrook has been no less spectacular, with his athleticism and play making in the regular season and playoffs. Derrick Rose has dazzled with speed and elusiveness, building on his MVP campaign by willing the Bulls to two victories in the playoffs. Blake Griffin was an All-Star in his rookie season and though the Clippers didn’t advance to the playoffs he captivated our imaginations with several sensational dunks.
Those are just four of the budding stars who will dominate the league for years to come. Who do you think is the most exciting young player in the game?
