LeBron Wants J.R. Smith to be in 3-Point Contest

The Cleveland Cavaliers figure to be well represented as an organization at next month’s NBA All-Star Game. LeBron James and Kyrie Irving are both on track to be starters through the second balloting returns, and David Blatt and his coaching staff are set to work the sideline so long as the Cavs hold on to the East’s top seed come February. Kevin Love, having a fine season, could very well join them.

However, James stumped for another member of the Cavs to join them in Toronto: J.R. Smith. Specifically, he wants Smith — who went 5-for-6 from deep in Cleveland’s 125-99 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday — to be a part of the 3-point shootout for the first time in his 12-year career.
