5. Anthony Edwards, Timberwolves
Like Bane, Anthony Edwards also received a rookie max extension with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The two-way guard has improved his game every season and it’s become clear that the 6-foot-4 guard is the face of the franchise moving forward.
4. Kyrie Irving, Mavericks
Like others on this list, Kyrie Irving would also be a point guard on most other teams, but with the Dallas Mavericks having Luka Doncic, it’s okay for Irving to be a shooting guard. The 6-foot-2 guard is an elite three-level scorer, playmaking, and closer, which should be an ideal Robin to Doncic’s Batman.
3. Paul George, Clippers
Paul George is out of position playing shooting guard for the Los Angeles Clippers standing at 6-foot-8. However, George might even be higher on this list due to his talent, but health concerns are holding back the veteran at this point in his career.
2. Donovan Mitchell, Cavaliers
Donovan Mitchell was everything that the Cleveland Cavaliers traded their future for last off-season. The 6-foot-1 guard can do everything scoring the guard one could ask for but last season he actually competed on the defensive end.
1. Jaylen Brown, Celtics
It’s no surprise that the 6-foot-6 Jaylen Brown claims the top spot on the shooting guard spot. The Boston Celtics have an elite two-way wing that would be the best player on most other teams, just not his own.
