Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr firmly believes San Antonio Spurs guard Dejounte Murray should be in the All-Star game, which is why he voted for him.

Kerr admitted as much on Tuesday ahead of the Warriors’ showdown with the Spurs at AT&T Center. The veteran tactician didn’t hold back in his praise of the 25-year-old, whom he said is having an All-Star year by all standards.

“I think he’s an All-Star,” Kerr reiterated about Murray, per Paul Garcia of Project Spurs.

Dejounte Murray has been phenomenal for San Antonio this 2021-22 season so far, averaging 19.4 points, 8.4 rebounds and 9.1 assists. He has also been spectacular defensively, getting 2.0 steals per game.

Like Warriors coach Steve Kerr, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has been campaigning for Murray to make the All-Star team. After all, the playmaker has the numbers to make his case as one of the best in the NBA.

However, as Coach Pop admitted mid-January amid the fan voting, it will be hard or near impossible for Murray to be named an All-Star because of their record. The Spurs are 19-32 on the season heading to Tuesday’s game with the Warriors.

“As I’ve said before, Dejounte’s had an All-Star season. But he’s not going to get a look at the All-Star game probably because our record is so poor,” Popovich said back in January, as shared by Garcia.

It remains to be seen if Murray will get enough votes to be an All-Star, but if he doesn’t, at least he knows a lot of people–like Kerr–believes he should be there.
