Milwaukee Bucks PG Brandon Jennings Deserves All-Star Bid
Milwaukee Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings is the type of player that only gets better and better with more experience in the NBA and in his third season–that’s exactly the case once again. Not only is Jennings averaging over 18 points and five assists so far this season, but the Bucks currently hold the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference.
When taking all of this into consideration–it’s safe to say Jennings has performed well enough to earn a spot on the Eastern Conference’s roster in Houston once February rolls around.
Thanks to Jennings and Monta Ellis, Milwaukee has been rolling so far this year with a 19-18 record and head to Arizona on Thursday for a matchup against the Phoenix Suns. With this type of duo, the Bucks hope this is the year Jennings and Ellis can help the team return to the postseason for the first time since the 2009-10 season.
While All-Star Weekend is always fun for fans to watch, it’s no secret that year after year it turns into a popularity contest–which could hurt Jennings earning a spot this season. As bad as it sounds, fans don’t always take the numbers aspect into perspective and focus more on which players they would prefer to see square off against one another on the court that would provide the most entertainment.
Jennings is a great shooter, but he may not be as popular as some of the other stars from the Eastern Conference–which should make the voting process interesting once February rolls around.
