The league is in very good hands, as you can see by the teams in the Final Four this season. Devin Booker, Trae Young, Deandre Ayton, Mikal Bridges, Kevin Huerter, John Collins, are just some of the young studs that are still in contention to win their very first ring.

And, given what they've shown thus far in just three seasons in the league, it seems like the NBA Draft class of 2018 is going to be one for the ages. As a matter of fact, Phoenix Suns' big man Deandre Ayton says that it's the best class in NBA history:

“I think it’s the best class in NBA history," Ayton said, as quoted by Cronkite News.

While that could be a bit of a stretch and it's still way too early to tell (especially with classes like 1984, 1996, and 2003), the class of 2018 has definitely been on a tear this season.

2018 gave us rising superstars such as Trae Young and Luka Doncic, plus All-Star caliber players like Deandre Ayton, Collin Sexton, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Jaren Jackson Jr, Mikal Bridges, Miles Bridges, and Michael Porter Jr.

Also, we have some valuable rotation players like Kevin Huerter, Donte DiVincenzo, Lonnie Walker, Robert Williams III, Mitchell Robinson, Gary Trent Jr, Bruce Brown, Shake Milton, Landry Shamet, Anfernee Simmons, Marvin Bagley III, Devonte' Graham, Jalen Brunson, Hamidou Diallo, and Wendell Carter Jr.

It's still early in their development but there's no doubt that once it's all said and done, the class of 2018 could go down as one of the greatest in basketball history.

But, for now, Ayton and Young must go through a war in their respective Conferences to see who'll win a ring for the 2018 NBA Draft class first.
