Does Jalen Brunson deserve an invitation to the All-Star Game in Indianapolis?

After making a huge leap forward in his first season with the New York Knicks, Jalen Brunson has solidified himself as one of the best point guards in the NBA.

Last season he put up 24 points per game, 6.2 assists, and shot 41% from deep with limited attempts. While that didn’t put him on the level of All-Stars Anthony Edwards, Ja Morant, Damian Lillard, and Jrue Holiday, some still include him among the best players in the NBA.

Bleacher Report’s Zach Buckley even suggested that Brunson could make an All-NBA team, a lofty goal for many reasons. For starters, even Brunson’s biggest fans will readily admit that he isn’t the best point guard in the league. While he is incredible and one of the most underrated players in the league, which is hard to do in New York, there is more talent than ever in the league.

It’s very rare for a Knick or a Los Angeles Laker to be snubbed from the NBA’s main event, but Brunson and Randle will have to play the most electric basketball New York has ever seen to make the All-Star Game. But Knicks fans won’t care if the two lead the way to their true team goal: basketball in June.
