They aren't ready to challenge Tiger Woods on the Fortunate 50 yet, but these young stars may soon cash in. Here's a rundown of who SI thinks will one day make their way to the ranks of the top 50 earners.
The 22-year-old floor general was the NBA's breakthrough star in '07-08, finishing second in the MVP voting while leading the Hornets to 56 wins and a division title.

Most observers expect the Hornets to secure Paul's services with a lucrative, long-term deal during the next year.
