2. Chet Holmgren
Last week's rank: 2
Holmgren continues his dominance over opposing players but will stay at the two spot in this week's list.
Chet Holmgren has bounced back after a rough week in the previous rankings. He's now had multiple games over 15 points and has made a huge impact for the Thunder. The team went 2-1 in last week's set of games.
Allowing Chet to develop on a good basketball team has proven to be a dream scenario for the Thunder. He's fit right into every scheme and has meshed well with SGA and other players on that team.
His length has given him an advantage over any player and the Thunder have exploited that well. Recently, he has been stuck around the perimeter defending smaller guards, and it has worked out well for the Thunder. If Chet can continue to get more athletic and become comfortable with switching to smaller guards, his game could reach another level.
Offensively, the rookie phenom has been electric all year long. He has proven to be a true floor spacer and has flashed the ability to cut to the hoop when the ball is on the opposite side of the court.
Chet still has a lot of rawness in his game, but it's clear to see that there is star potential. He will need to continue to get stronger and faster; if he can do this every offseason, an MVP award could be in his future.
