Maybe this NBA phenom should consider a part-time job in retail. Before Pascal Siakam was named an All-Star on Thursday, January 23, the Toronto Raptor was filmed working behind the cash desk at the NBA Store in Manhattan, New York. Fans were able to purchase Spicy P jerseys and Raptors gear and even get the big man himself to sign them.\nThe wait was finally over for Siakam as he was voted in as a starter in the NBA All-Star tournament in Chicago, February 2020.\nHis first lineup nod was just so emotional for the star player, as his brother was there to cheer him on.\nBut the way he waited for the announcement was as humble as it could possibly get, as Spicy got a little taste of the retail life.\nThe NBA Store Twitter account tweeted to tease a surprise for fans, leaving them to wonder who could possibly be the special guest not long before the results were confirmed.\n"Special cashier will be @NBASTORE NYC, 6:30pm tonight..." reads the tweet.\nUltimately, Spicy P gave back to fans the best way he could: by signing autographs and cashing out their Raptors merch, according to multiple sources at the event.\nLook who's working the register at the @NBASTORE in NYC. @pskills43 got a part time job #rtz #raptors pic.twitter.com/rNSHTqotzA— Paul Jones (@Paul__Jones) January 23, 2020\n.@pskills43 ...working the cash and signing autographs at the @NBASTORE in NYC. #Raptors #nba @nba pic.twitter.com/xDzU1b5faW— Eric Smith (@Eric__Smith) January 23, 2020\nJust your average (pending) NBA all-star @pskills43 working retail at the NBA store in Manhattan: pic.twitter.com/JWzgYe8dAd— Michael Grange (@michaelgrange) January 23, 2020\nAs the clock struck 7 p.m., eyes were glued onto the large screen behind Siakam. There were raucous celebrations when his name was spoken.\nEven before his place was confirmed, Siakam's teammates were banging the drum for him. Kyle Lowry, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, and Matt Thomas made sure to show some love and support before the major announcement was made.\nView this post on Instagram Good people, good times ⭐️ A post shared by Toronto Raptors (@raptors) on Jan 23, 2020 at 5:16pm PST\nAnd the anointed All-Star got a surprise visit in New York from another teammate, Terence Davis, according to Raptors reporter Blake Murphy.\n"Pascal Siakam as a guest cashier at the NYC NBA Store right now. Earlier, Terence Davis tried to return a Siakam jersey to no avail," says Murphy.\nAll jokes aside, Davis made sure to be there for his star teammate.\n.@TerenceDavisJr checkin' in on @pskills43 at the @NBASTORE.Come by and say what up. #WeTheNorth pic.twitter.com/oCcPvD8Gqs— Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) January 24, 2020\nPascal Siakam as a guest cashier at the NYC NBA Store right now.

After all, some seem to believe he's better than some of the team's old star players.\nWell, now that he's an All-Star, Siakam can ditch his part-time employment as an NBA Store cashier and stick to what he does best, playing ball.\nBut at least now he has a failsafe career. Not that he's likely to need it.
