Magic Johnson often shares his views on basketball through his Twitter account with his latest comment referring to De’Aaron Fox and Jerami Grant.

The Lakers’ legend claimed both players deserve to be NBA All-Stars this year, however he seems to think that they won’t make it to the team.

Grant joined the Detroit Pistons the past offseason, signing a three-year, $60M contract with the franchise. The former Nuggets’ forward has been great so far averaging career-highs in almost every category.

Grant registers 24.2 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per contest. He shoots 45.3-percent from the field and a career-best 39.5-percent from deep.

On the other hand, Fox is also playing the best basketball of his career leading the Kings to the upper echelon of the Western Conference.

He is scoring 23.4 points on 47.7-percent shooting. Fox runs the Kings’ offense averaging 6.7 assists per contest, while he has a huge impact on the defensive end with 1.2 steals per game.
