Knicks’ Jalen Brunson talks about unshakable self-confidence

Believing in yourself is the first step to succeed in any undertaking in life. New York Knicks franchise player Jalen Brunson has embraced this principle throughout his basketball journey, and it has been a major driving force in his rise to his first All-Star nod this season.

While his confidence hasn’t waned, Brunson shed light on how the prestigious honor wasn’t something he thought about despite his belief that he would be a top-tier contributor in the league, as Mark W. Sanchez of New shared. York Post:

“I always knew that if I had an opportunity, I could do my best. I’m not saying I knew I’d be here [at All-Star Weekend], but I knew I could do something someday.”
