Pascal Siakam Announced 2020 Eastern Conference All-Star Starter

Pascal Siakam just continues to reach new heights.

The past year has been an absolute roller coaster for the 25 year old Cameroonian who not only won an NBA Championship, but also took home NBA’s Most Improved Player of the Year honours. Now, the Toronto Raptors young forward can add another accomplishment to his quickly growing resume – he is an All-Star.

And not only is he an All-Star, but Siakam was voted in as a starter!

Snubbed just a season prior, Siakam has taken his game to new heights.

Averaging 23.5 points and 7.7 rebounds per game, Siakam has become a two-way force in the league after only starting to play basketball in his late teens. His three-point shot has vastly improved, his ball-handling ability has taken yet another big step forward, and Siakam continues to get better with each year.

He doesn’t just take small steps forward, he takes leaps!

“I kind of hate, like, every time there’s a big moment, it feels like there’s something missing,” Siakam said in reference to his late father upon hearing the All-Star announcement, according to Doug Smith. “But I know, I know he’s here, I know he’s watching me. I can feel his presence.”

Nevertheless, Siakam is most certainly excited and once again, there will be a Raptor representing the team in the All-Star starting lineup. It will be interesting to see if Kyle Lowry will be following suit shortly as All-Star reserves are set to be announced on January 30.

A big win for the Toronto Raptors and an incredible accomplishment for Spicy P.
