Ben Gordon is right theree imo
Al Jefferson
Rudy Gay is close as well
David West
Brandon Roy & Caron Butler, if they can duplicate what they both did last season will be in that category as well

Josh SMITH is 22 years old, he is the youngest ever to 500 blocks, he has athleticism rivaled only by lebron james, and he is a solid offensive player that is clearly still mastering his strengths and working on his weaknesses. he has increased his scoring average every year since his rookie year and is constantly improving his game. to people who say, "he's inconsistent" or "he's not a good shooter" they are only showing their own negative mindset focus, because Smith is not a "shooter" but he is a "scorer" and he has ALWAYS been a great defensive player. in the 2008 playoffs, Josh Smith and Al Horford gave Garnett more problems offensively than any other matchup in the whole playoffs. when Smith "gets it" offensively, he will be an all-star and a leader and franchise player for the Hawks

this is easily his potential

24 ppg 9 rpg 4 apg 3 bpg 2 spg

mark my words Josh Smith is a future Defensive Player of the Year award winner and all-star in this league

Monta Ellis definitly strikes me as having the potential to be a star in this league. Maybe in 2-3 years he will be the 1st option on, possibly the Warriors, but who knows where he could end up.

i would say caron butler being a 2 time allstart selection and in my opinion a top 5 sf is allready a superstar.

Andre Iguodala led that Sixers team to the playoffs which was impressive. I see him putting up 21/6/6 on a very good shooting % soon. All he needs is a low post threat on that team and it'll open everything up for him.

He needs to work on his mid range and perimeter shot too he had one of the lowest if not the lowest 3 point % in the league(i am a 6ers fan too so dont flame me lol)

didnt iguodala average like 10 ppg in this seasons playoffs? he was going thru it worse than smith was on his worst day, i see his potential too, but i lost respect for him in those playoffs, if he would have showed up at least ONCE yall could have had a chance to knock off the pistons, if the NBA would have allowed it lol

I say Josh Smith. He's improved his game every year, and he's still only 22. All he really needs is a jumper and he'll be a bonafide star. I think he could be a sleeper to make the All-Star team next season.
