Finally an All-Star


After 14 Seasons, Mike Conley Rewarded with First All-Star Appearance

If you ask an analytics head, they would tell you that this is long overdue.

On Friday, the NBA announced that Phoenix Suns’ guard Devin Booker would not participate in this weekend’s All-Star Game due to a left knee sprain. His replacement – veteran point guard Mike Conley.

His first All-Star nod!

One of the driving forces of the Grit-n-Grind Memphis Grizzlies for nearly a decade, Conley has put together an incredible career built on being a lockdown defender, a great scorer and facilitator, and a player who does a lot of the little things that don’t show up on the box score. If you are to start a list of most underrated players in NBA history, Conley will surely be somewhere atop that list.

In his second season with the Utah Jazz, the 33 year old has averaged 16.1 points, 5.7 assists, and has shot a career high 42.2 percent from long range. Alongside fellow All-Stars Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, he has helped pushed the Jazz to the best record in the NBA at 27-9.

It took 14 long seasons, but it finally happened and it is well deserved!
