Kiszla: Jamal Murray’s return reminds NBA why it’s overdue to give him All-Star recognition

There’s no longer any question the NBA is overdue in recognizing Nuggets guard Jamal Murray as an All-Star, and all the proof we needed was for him to sit on his fanny.

With Murray nursing an injured hamstring for nearly a month, the defending champions limped along with a 6-5 record, looking more vulnerable than unstoppable.

With Murray lacing up his blue sneakers Wednesday night for a triumphant return to action, the Nuggets again looked like the most unstoppable offensive force in basketball, rolling to a 134-124 victory against Houston.

Consider it a lesson learned about the fragile nature of building a dynasty.
