Former NBA star Tracy McGrady is not pleased with how the All-Star voting has gone by so far.
As per the latest voting returns, Dallas Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic has 3,301,825 votes which is notably more than the likes of Stephen Curry (2,979,080), James Harden (2,315,093) and Kevin Durant (2,432,134).
Doncic has caught the attention of the NBA world with his standout performances for Dallas so far, as he averages 20.3 points, 6.7 rebounds and 5.1 assists over 43 games this season.
However, that doesn’t mean he should be getting more votes than past MVPs like Curry and Harden according to McGrady, who was speaking on ESPN’s The Jump.
“This is so disrespectful on all levels of voting. C’mon. Not only are they disrespecting the guy that changed this era of basketball in Steph Curry, with Doncic having more votes than Steph Curry. No James Harden? Are you kidding me?”
“I’m not saying that Doncic shouldn’t be an All-Star. He should be an All-Star. But to be ahead of these two guys (Harden and Kevin Durant) that are not on this list? They’re not fan favorites, though. KD is not a fan favorite and neither is James Harden, so I understand.”
The NBA All-Star game will take place Feb. 17.
