The best part is that the voting process is extremely easy. Simply follow the link below to make your selections for the 2020 NBA All-Star game, and make sure you vote for the former Jayhawks!


Of course, Joel Embiid deserves to make the all-star team, but there’s another former Kansas basketball player that deserves a shot. Devonte’ Graham has been playing absolutely fantastic this season, and he has a real case to win the NBA’s Most Improved Player Award. If Graham wins the MIP Award, he’d be the first Jayhawk to win an NBA honor since Andrew Wiggins won Rookie of the Year in 2015.

So far, Graham is averaging 19.3 points and 7.5 assists per game this season. He’s recorded nine double-doubles this year, and also shooting over 40% from behind the three-point line. At the very least, Graham deserves to be in the NBA Three-Point Contest.

Andrew Wiggins is also having a career year this season. So far, he’s averaging 25 points5.2 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game. Even if Wiggins doesn’t make an all-star appearance, it’s certainly great to see him begin to play to his full potential.

Of course, Joel Embiid is having a great year with the 76ers. He’s currently averaging 23.3 points and 12.6 rebounds per game as he seeks his third career all-star appearance.

Hot. Three reasons Villanova loss shouldn’t concern fans. light

Getting former Kansas basketball players in the NBA All-Star Game would look really good for the Bill Self and the Jayhawks. Fans fail to realize sometimes that college and high school basketball players’ dreams lie in the NBA, and not necessarily college.

Help make those dreams come true, and click the link above to vote for the former Jayhawks!
