SAN ANTONIO — Dejounte Murray is lighting up the court this season and one former NBA player is shouting out loud that the Spurs guard deserves more attention for his spectacular play.
"Dejounte Murray needs more attention! That dude is BALLIN this year," tweeted ex-NBA player Channing Frye.
Frye certainly is right and Murray's numbers prove it.
He's currently averaging career-highs with 17.6 points per game, 8.1 rebounds per game, and in assists at 8.3 per game through 10 games played.
A deeper dive shows the Spurs are 3-1 when he records three-plus steals, tops at his position in the NBA in defensive rebounding (7.5 per game), and fourth among NBA point guards in steals (2.2 per game).
And that is just the tip of the iceberg.
According to 3 Steps Basket, Murray is diversifying his shot selection and making them this season.
3 Steps Basket also shows Murray's overall impact on the team and it is incredible.
Murray shows no signs of slowing down.
He's scored in double-figure in each game this season and recorded a triple-double versus the Lakers on Oct. 26 with 21 points, 12 rebounds, and 15 assists.
Hard to disagree with Frye here.
Murray definitely deserves more recognition for what he is doing on the court this season.
