Admittedly, though, we might be a little biased. But don’t take our word for it; his numbers speak for themselves.
Click through for five reasons why Dragic deserves an All-Star nod this season.
Goran Dragic, LeBron James and Kevin Durant are the only three players in the NBA this season to be averaging at least 19 points and 5 assists while shooting at least .480 FG%.
In the 16 full seasons dating back to 1997-98, there have been just 23 times a player has posted these minimums over the course of an entire season; in all 23 instances, the player doing so played in the All-Star Game that season.
Keeps Getting Better
Over the last 16 games, Dragic has scored 20+ points 10 times and is averaging 21.6 points, 6.6 assists, 4.1 rebounds, 1.7 steals and is shooting 52 percent from the field and 42 percent from distance.
Dragic is the first Sun since Stephon Marbury in 2003-04 to be averaging over 19 points and five assists.
Fast and Furious (and Efficient)
Goran Dragic is 5th in the NBA with an average of 5.3 fast break points per game and is t-15th in the NBA and t-6th among guards with 5.5 free throw attempts per game.
Perhaps more impressive, Dragic has four games with 30+ points already this season, the most by a Suns player since the 2009-10 season (Amar’e Stoudemire, 15; Steve Nash, 5).
Goran Dragic had 31 points, 10 assists and five rebounds for his second career game with at least 30 points, 10 assists and five rebounds (31/12/9 vs. Brooklyn on March 24, 2013).
Dating back to the 1985-86 season, Dragic is just the sixth Suns player with multiple career 30-point/10-assist/5-rebound games, joining Kevin Johnson (14), Steve Nash (5), Stephon Marbury (3), Jason Kidd (3) and Jeff Hornacek (2).
Ironically enough, each of the aforementioned players have been All-Stars.
Amongst the Best in the West
In 37 games this season in which he has started and not had to leave the game early due to injury, Dragic has averaged 20.4 points and 6.3 assists.
His field goal percentage (49%) is third amongst all qualified guards in the NBA trailing just Dwyane Wade (53%) and Tony Parker (51%).
For comparisons sake, Dragic averages more points and rebounds than Parker.
