With an average of 18.4 points this season, it's essential to recognize his phenomenal contributions, particularly considering his exceptional playoff run last season. 

During the championship campaign, Murray posted superstar-worthy numbers, averaging 26.1 points, 7.1 assists, 5.7 rebounds, and 1.5 steals with impressive shooting percentages.

While Nikola Jokic's stellar performances often dominate the headlines, Jamal Murray's consistent excellence demands acknowledgment. 

As the NBA All-Star game approaches, many argue that Murray's contributions over the last two seasons make him a deserving candidate. 

His on-court achievements and undeniable impact make a compelling case for his inclusion among the league's elite. (Source: Sports Illustrated)
