The Milwaukee rookie finds out he’s heading to All-Star weekend...and adds to his poster collection.

Malcolm Brogdon may have graduated (twice) from Virginia, but he’s still one of our favorite topics here at Streaking the Lawn. Since he was taken with the #36 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks, we’ve covered his destructiveness in the league as he has put forth a Rookie of the Year quality season (DAMN YOU JOEL EMBIIIIIID!). That hard work was rewarded today as the Prez was named to the US Team for the 2017 BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge.

The game features first and second year NBA players in a “USA against the World” format, and will take place Friday, February 17 at 9ET on TNT. Brogdon’s current achievements are pretty impressive as he leads eligible rookies (DAMN YOU JOEL EMBIIIIIIID!!) in three point shooting (42.5%), assists (4.1 per game), and steals (1.1 per game), and is second in scoring (9.2 per game) and eighth (tied) in rebounding (2.8 per game). No rookie has shot better from three since some dude named Steph Curry (43.7%) in 2009-10. Oh, and he was the third ever NBA second round pick to notch a triple-double their first year. No big deal.

We sure Embiid is eligible? Have we checked the fine print?

To celebrate, Brogdon added to his impressive poster collection, this time victimizing Nerlens Noel of the 76ers (and Kentucky).

YOOOOOOOOOOOO. WHAT. The swag at the end...Malcolm is coming into his own. Expectedly, Twitter lost it.

It’s really quite the poster collection.

I’d watch that. In fact, I could get used to alerts like these:

We see you, @malcolmbrogdon92 #ROY #trustedtheprocess #postercollection

Brogdon will return the the illustrious Grounds of Virginia on February 20th to have his jersey retired, and deservedly so.
