Stardom can be a difficult thing to pinpoint in the NBA.
We know that some players are stars. LeBron James. Giannis Antetokounmpo. Nikola Jokic. If you don’t consider these players stars, you don’t just have a high standard: you’re wrong.
On the other hand, some players have a slightly more ambiguous status. For example, take Tyler Herro. Would you really consider him a star?
Of course, some players are simply lower-level stars. Look at Zach LaVine.

It feels wrong to say he’s not a star player, yet, you wouldn’t rank him with LeBron James and company, would you?
With that said, he’s still a highly impactful player. Moreover, at 22, Herro still has star potential. Could the two swap sides this season?
