Who might be the higher NBA player in five years: Boston Celtics star forward Jayson Tatum, Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokoumpo or Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic?
Immediately, all are on the cusp of superstardom or already there. Doncic has the flashier game of the three. Antetokounmpo has the title. Tatum is somewhere in between.
Tatum and Doncic can hit absurd shots seemingly from anywhere on the court, and the Greek Freak is virtually unstoppable in transition. Tatum and Doncic are also each completed floor generals once they should be and have the scale to play up a bit, too. Giannis has been known to string the needle once in a while as well.
The hosts of the ESPN “Hoop Collective” podcast recently debated which of those three might be the larger star in a half-decade.
Take a have a look at the clip embedded above to listen to what that they had to say.
