If you needed to argue that Vučević has been the perfect participant on this record this season, I’d most likely disagree, however I’d not less than hear you out. Chances are, you wouldn’t make that time anyway, primarily as a result of a lot of you haven’t seen a lot of him this season.
The uber-talented heart toiling away down in Orlando has one-upped his 2018-19 All-Star season, however with far much less wholesome expertise round, he’s stored the Magic afloat rattling almost by himself. Through 31 video games this season, the Swiss heart is averaging a career-high 24.1 factors, together with 11.7 rebounds, with a taking pictures line of 48.1 / 40.5 / 83.5. His offensive ranking can be at 115, tying a personal-best.
His second-best participant this season has been Evan Fournier. People proceed ready for Aaron Gordon to ascend, however his productiveness has been declining for 4 seasons, and the Magic are with out Markelle Fultz and Jonathan Issac, and Mo Bamba is hardly a rotation participant. The Magic are twelfth within the convention, however they’re 13-18. Everyone however the Detroit Pistons and Minnesota Timberwolves are “right there.” If snubbed, it’ll likely be due to Adebayo and Sabonis, and Randle would possibly be in over him, too. Other frontcourt stars within the East of consideration are Gordon Hayward, and Tobias Harris. (Jayson Tatum, too, however don’t anticipate him to be excluded.)
