As it stands, Doncic looks like a lock to make his fourth-straight All-Star Team. Barring a late rally by Morant, Doncic will be an All-Star starter for the third time in his career. Last season, Morant earned a starting nod over Doncic.
This season, Doncic is averaging a league-leading 34 points per game to go along with 8.8 rebounds, 8.7 assists, and 1.7 steals. He is also shooting a career-best 50.1 percent on field goals and knocking down 35.2 percent of his 3-point attempts.
