ESPN names Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, and John Wall the top three NBA players under age 25

ESPN Insider just released their Top 25 players under the age of 25 in the NBA, and the top three are pretty darn familiar: 1) Anthony Davis, 2) DeMarcus Cousins, and 3) John Wall. Here are a few of David Thorpe and Amin Elhassan’s comments about each:

Anthony Davis

David Thorpe: Simply put, he’s currently the best player on Earth and is still getting better. He is a huge impact guy in three phases of the game, offense, defense and the boards. All that is left is to grow into a great leader.


Elhassan: I’ve reluctantly been pulled onto the Cousins bandwagon. I never doubted his talent, it was just that I always had questions about his approach. But so far this season he seems to have turned that corner. Might be the most dominant inside force in the NBA.


Thorpe: Wall is the best of the elite point guards at passing, and he is now managing the game while looking to be the difference-maker as an assertive scorer. If he ever develops a 3-point shot he could be the league’s best guard.

Other NBA Cats on the list: 20. Brandon Knight, 22. Julius Randle

As a bonus, here’s footage of Anthony Davis mic’d up in the Pelicans’ win over the Knicks last night:

    stupid paid articles … I wanted to see where Peyton Siva was, HAAAAAAAA

    anyway, don’t think they should put Randle on there before he’s ever played … some other rookies have at least played a 1/4 of a season

    I’d put that five up against ANYBODY – and that includes Cal playing the TWO!
