Jerami Grant of the Detroit Pistons deserves to be an All-Star but he is going to need some help.

Grant has been one of the surprise players in the NBA this season, making the leap from role player to star when he was given an expanded role with the Detroit Pistons.

Grant now looks like a piece of the Pistons’ future core and as a wing who can score and defend, he has the skillset every team is looking for.

Grant has not only played at an All-Star level thus far but if he continues this way, he might end up making the All-NBA team as well.

Detroit Pistons: Where does Jerami Grant rank among small forwards?

Jerami Grant has been one of the best small forwards in the NBA by any measure but since this is about All-Star voting, we’ll limit comparisons to the Eastern Conference.

Grant is 2nd in scoring for small forwards in the East, just behind Celtics’ star Jayson Tatum.

He is 4th in rebounds, 5th in assists, 1st in blocks, 11th in steals, 5th in 3-point makes per game, 1st in free-throw attempts and 1st in minutes.

There are few players in the Eastern Conference who feature in the top-5 of so many categories, so by any measure, Jerami Grant is an All-Star.

We just need to help get him there.

Detroit Pistons: How can you vote Jerami Grant in as an All-Star?

The NBA has increased the number of ways that fans can vote for the All-Star team.

One way that Pistons’ fans can take advantage is by using the power of Twitter.

Fans can Tweet, retweet or reply with an NBA player’s Twitter handle, along with the hashtag #NBAAllStar.  Each tweet may include only one player’s name or handle.  Fans may vote for 10 unique players per day from Jan. 28 – Feb. 16.

Here is a Tweet you can use:

@JeramiGrant is averaging 23.6 points (career-high), 5.9 rebounds, and 3 assists per game and leads all small forwards in minutes.  #NBAAllStar

Because the Detroit Pistons are not good, Jerami Grant is not going to get the national attention he deserves, so Pistons’ Twitter is going to have to get him there ourselves.
