He is also the player sitting at the top for the NBA triple-double this season. Though he was left out of the All-Star game, MVP candidate Sabonis has been on a roll, recording his third straight triple-double and his 18th of the year. With 49 double-doubles and triple-doubles, Sabonis leads the league by significantly, surpassing Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets in both scoring divisions.

Domantas Sabonis surpassed Oscar Robertson on February 3rd to take the franchise record with his 30th straight double-double. And now that he has accomplished this, he is evolving into their greatest player ever. However, his play has always been considered underappreciated. Many sections have seen Sabonis’ denial of an All-Star place as a major disrespect, which is understandable given that he is contributing well to a successful team.

The King’s big man will also forfeit a $1.3 million bonus that is outlined in his contract in addition to failing to get a fourth All-Star selection. Fans are now criticizing the franchise and the team for his underappreciated status because his records do the talking.

The Kings are having a season by sitting at the 8th position in the Western Conference standings. De’Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis, the Kings’ All-Star snub duo, utterly crushed the Suns on Tuesday, accounting for 75 of Sacramento’s 125 points. The fact that they still lost is utterly concerning.
