Stephen A. Smith criticizes Knicks’ Jalen Brunson

According to Joseph Staszewski of the New York Post, as Stephen A. Smith of ESPN sees it, Knicks point guard Jalen Brunson is certainly one of the best for his exceptional play in the first half of the season, but despite all that, the fan of the Knicks sided with the Haliburton choice, saying this on NBA Today:

“Jalen Brunson is a star and he deserves all the credit in the world, but I feel sorry for him,” Smith said. “There is a reason why the fans, media, and players all voted for Haliburton over Brunson.”

The starters were announced on the latest edition of Inside the NBA last week, and all three voting groups gave Haliburton and Milwaukee Bucks point guard Damian Lillard the edge over Brunson.
