The NBA is a fantastic league because of its stars, but all that talent is only enhanced by the fact that basketball superstardom isn’t confined by age. Whether you’re a 19-year-old rookie or a 38-year-old fading talent, the NBA is made by its biggest names, highest risers and best shot-makers.

But with so much talent at so many different ages, it can be hard to keep track of how much room for growth certain players have. Most of the all-time greats have peaked in the 27-30 range, but as the NBA continually gets younger, we’re always looking to the younger 20s for the next superstar.

In the interest of sorting it all out, it’s time to take a look at the young and the old, and rank each and every player at each and every age in the NBA.
