On the heels of a career-best 34 points and 16 rebounds against the Portland Trail Blazers, Orlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic’s case to be an All-Star has never been stronger. He isn’t getting much love in the fan voting for the starters, receiving just over 68,000 total votes based off of last week’s most recent returns, but the head coaches from around the Eastern Conference who will be voting for the reserves are definitely taking note of his production.

“Vucevic is an All-Star and a terrific player,” Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said. “He’s probably the best player in the league that nobody knows. I don’t think you hear anybody talking about him, but when you look at his raw numbers they are superstar and All-Star worthy, but nobody knows it.’’
