✖︎ My Young, Underrated Starting Five

27 October 2018 🏀

PG: Kris Dunn

SG: Josh Hart

SF: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

PF: Domantas Sabonis

C: Harry Giles Jr. 

Disappointed with Dunn’s injury, which will continue to set him back, but defensively he’s already a stud. With a consistent jumper and a reduction in turnovers, he can turn into a great all around PG.

Josh Hart is a stretch for this list since he’s already getting his due, inserted into the starting lineup, but he’s a guy that’s going to do everything for you at the two position, including knocking down shots.

I’ve been riding for MKG since he entered the league. He may not be a great shooter, but he’s an energy guy, all over the court and if he gets utilized correctly, which it looks like they might do as a more Draymond Green role, he should become even more effective.

Domantas Sabonis is already starting to prove himself with Indiana, but if Indiana is going to take a step up, which will be extremely difficult, it will be because guys like Sabonis start to find their place and have a bigger impact.

Lastly, I truly believe Harry Giles Jr. is going to be a star. Offensively, there’s nothing he can’t do. He’s in a tricky situation in Sacramento, where they have a lot of bugs, and the focus is on Marvin Bagley Jr., but Giles should still have ample opportunity prove himself in the league.
