    ......is Justice Winslow. You can see it coming. All the tools are there. Defensive ace. Great handle. Can break down the defense and finish/dish. Can play off the ball, cut and finish or spot up. And his jump shot is finally money. Plenty of balls, guys, and brains.

    Local kid. Would love to have him in our starting line-up for years to come. He's a budding superstar.

    Depends who is and isn't already a superstar in your mind. For me Devin Booker is next, if you count him there, then Jaylen Brown/Jayson Tatum, take your pick.

    What are the chances of him being elite? I need percentages and pie charts.

    Devin Booker, Ben Simmons, Brandon Ingram, Donovan Mitchell, Dennis Smith, Luka Doncic, or a healthy Michael Porter Jr. Even Andrew Wiggins who is still fairly young could be one of those guys.

    How many 3rd year superstar wings have averaged 7.5ppg after 3 years in the league?

    Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, maybe, HELL NO!

    Wiggins has one of the worst contracts in the league on top of it. Dude is purely hyped up bounce/athleticism and that's it.

    Winslow regressed from '16-'17 to '17-'18.

    11/5/3.7 to 8/5/2.2 is pretty drastic. He also played in more games this year, so its an even bigger sample size to pull from.

    If he doesn't make a huge jump this year, I feel like he's just not going to, ever. He has someone to learn from, on this team (Wade) and a really good coach (Spoelstra). No reason why he can't, unless he just can't.

    34.7 MPG to 24.7 MPG. 37.1% eFG to 47.5%. 20% 3pt % to 38%. He also sat out the majority of 16-17. Come on man. That's the opposite of regression.

    This.

    He actually got way better. Won't be a superstar but a high level 3 and D guy if he can keep improving his shot. Has a great motor and edge too. Just won't ever develop the ability to create his own shot or for others consistently IMO. He'd have to drastically improve his handle.

    Don't see it.

    I'll go with Jayson Tatum, Ben Simmons or Michael Porter (if he regains all of his athleticism).

    The next superstar wings are Simmons, Tatum and Mitchell. Winslow needs to show he can be a first option first before he can be seen as a superstar c'mon.

    Not consistently he can't. His handles are rudimentary as well. You aren't the only one who has watched a lot of Heat games.

    His handle is already above average.
