#10 Jaylen Brown
Are we learning that Kemba Walker, whom the Celtics signed in free agency this past summer, is a better fit in Brad Stevens’ offense than Kyrie Irving was? Are we also learning that Walker just simply jells better with Boston’s young core than Irving did? One of those young players thriving right now is Brown, who is currently averaging around 20 points per game while shooting a shade under 50 percent from the floor. He, Jayson Tatum and Marcus Smart are playing at the level that most thought they would play at last season following Boston's memorable conference finals run the year before.
Others deserving to be considered for this list are Detroit’s Luke Kennard, Philadelphia’s Josh Richardson, New Orleans’ Jrue Holiday and J.J. Redick, Oklahoma City’s Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Cleveland’s Collin Sexton and New York’s R.J. Barrett.
