Rudy Gay Ups Ante for All-Star Bid

About a week ago, I posted about Rudy Gay’s all-star campaign–specifically about his funny video campaign to get more fan votes.

Well, Rudy is gaining support for his All Star bid, and this time, it’s not laughing matter. Gay hit his second game winner of the season (on an almost identical shot as the first) last night against the Toronto Raptors.

Hitting shots like that and demanding to have the ball in your hands during late game situations are all-star qualities. Gay, now in his fifth season in the NBA, is clearly showing big signs of mental progress-becoming more than just a numbers guy.

Earlier this season, Gay hit a beautiful buzzer-beater over LeBron James at FedExForum that sent fans into a frenzy. So, All Star or not, Gay is definitely getting better and certainly doing a lot to win over the fans at home.
