Fans of pro basketball always love to see new stars rise to the forefront and prove that they will be a force to be reckoned with for years to come.
Although established superstars such as Giannis Antetokounmpo, LeBron James, Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant are still going strong, there is plenty of new blood in the NBA to make sure the league remains in good hands.
These three superstars are all no older than 25 years of age, and they all have a real shot at making this their decade.
This is an obvious choice, and many are penciling him in to win the league MVP this season.
Doncic can seemingly do it all, and through two games he’s averaging 33.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 8.0 assists per game.
The one weakness he does have is 3-point shooting, but he did hit 4-of-9 from beyond the arc in the Dallas Mavericks’ 137-96 wipeout over the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday.

The Mavs may not win a ton of games this season, but as soon as they get Doncic a legitimate co-star or superstar, they will enter the business of contending for championships.
As great as Morant was last season, it seems he has gotten even better to begin this year.
Through four games, he’s putting up 35.3 points and 7.0 assists per game, and he has even improved his 3-point shooting to the tune of a 60.0 percent accuracy from that distance.
Like Doncic, if Morant ever gets another true star or superstar next to him, the Memphis Grizzlies could start going deep into the playoffs each year.
Tatum still has some growing to do in order to reach true superstar status, but perhaps reaching the NBA Finals last season has left him emboldened.
He is putting up an outstanding 32.5 points per game on 55.6 percent shooting so far this season, and the key for him will be to string together great games while staying hot for long multi-game stretches.
