Murray talks about being expected to be an All-Star, it’s not up to him
In an NBA regular season that ended yesterday, the Denver Nuggets beat the New Orleans Pelicans 122-113 at home thanks to the outstanding performance of head star Nikola Jokic. After the game, Nuggets guard Jamal Murray talked about his hope of being selected for the All-Star in an interview with the media.
Murray mentioned in an interview: “I don’t care too much about whether I have entered the All-Star. Of course I want to be a member of the All-Star and want him to appear in my introduction, but this is not something I can decide. .If I end up not being drafted, then I’m going to go on vacation during the All-Star break.”
In this game, Murray played 35 minutes and 44 seconds and hit 10 goals in 21 shots, including 7 of 12 three-pointers and 5 of 5 free throws. He contributed 32 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. It is not easy for Murray to enter the Western Conference All-Star, because there are too many excellent defenders in the Western Conference. The defending champion Golden State Warriors defender Curry has been confirmed to be selected as the All-Star starter, as well as Doncic and Morant. These two supernovas, plus Thunder guard Alexander who performed well this season, and even Lillard, who is ranked low, these players have higher votes than Murray. Murray’s personal statistics are not particularly outstanding. The only advantage is that the team’s record ranks first in the Western Conference, but this is not an absolute factor in the selection of the All-Stars. Therefore, it is not realistic for Murray to be selected for the All-Stars this season. Really going on vacation.
