Ranking NBA’s Top 10 Shooting Guards for 2021-22 Season
#9 Jalen Green
It’s risky to put rookies on these top 10 lists. Usually, there are enough rocky points in year one, no matter how talented the player is, for them to eclipse at least 10 proven vets. But Green might be different. He does what’s most glamorous, and that is score, score effortlessly and score in abundance. The green light will likely be on from the get-go on the rebuilding Rockets. The only thing that could limit him is playing alongside another guard with a scorer’s mentality in Kevin Porter Jr. Maybe, that lessens his production a bit. But still, Houston drafted him second overall knowing what he brings to the table, and that should be accentuated immediately.
