Chicago Bulls star Zach LaVine feels like an all-star, but focuses more on winning games and reaching the playoffs.

“If we’re in the right position and do everything in my power, I’m just trying to help this team win games.”

When I get involved, that’s great. I don’t lack self-confidence once you have solidified as an all-star. I feel like an all-star.

Whenever I go on the pitch, I feel like the best player. I’m a very confident person, but if you don’t have that kind of mentality, you’ve already lost.

I’m not really focused on that big goal. I think it will happen, but I’m just focusing on winning games and trying to improve and get us into the playoffs, ”said LaVine to Shams Charania of The Athetic.

The versatile attacker scores an average of 24.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.4 thefts this season, and is doing his best to be at the all-star game in Chicago next month.
