List Rules Only current NBA Players Under 25. No retired or collegiate players.

With the average age of an NBA player being 26 years old, the league's youngest players definitely deserve props. While younger NBA players are generally more athletic and energetic than their older guys, players under 25 might lack league experience, strength, and basketball IQ. NBA rookies, sophomores, and juniors are usually hazed on and off the court in order to build mental tenacity and character. Who are the best current NBA players under 25 today? 

Lonzo Ball is one of the youngest active NBA players. Many young NBA players, like Karl-Anthony Towns, D'Angelo Russell, and Giannis Antetokounmpo, have already proved that they will grow up to become NBA superstars later in their careers.
