Lakers’ backup guard Alex Caruso has been quite popular on social media due to his recent appearances and impressive dunks. Fans have come to love him more and more, with even the smallest tasks on the court earning him MVP chants.
The love Lakers fans have for Caruso has resulted in numerous amounts of All-Star votes. Caruso is currently 4th in Western Conference guard voting and is ahead of several great players in the NBA.
In a recent interview with The Orange County Register, Caruso gave his thoughts on the All-Star votes. “I’m a realist. I know my role and I know what I’m doing for the team. Obviously I’m not one of the best 30 players in the league. There are people who are very deserving who have had great years. Fans do what fans do. Especially in the era of social media that we live in, once something catches fire, it just spreads. Like I said, I appreciate all the love. But the guys who deserve it, deserve it.”
