Cavs' J.R. Smith upset by not being in 3-point contest

J.R Smith on missing out on three point contest

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland Cavaliers three point specialist, J.R. Smith seemed upset by not getting the nod to participate in the All-Star weekend "Three-Point Contest."

When asked about not making the field, Smith took a few seconds to gather himself and think about, "I think I might take the Marshawn Lynch approach on this one, so I don't get fined. I got a lot to say on it but I'm not going to say anything because it's not going to help with it," Smith replied.

Players that will be participating in the contest: Warriors' Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, Clippers' J.J. Redick, Rockets' James Harden, Bucks' Khris Middleton, Raptors' Kyle Lowry, Suns' Devin Booker and Miami's Chris Bosh.

Smith has a reason to be upset, his 39.6 percent from behind the arch ranks ahead of Chris Bosh and James Harden. In addition, his 109 made three-pointers are more than Bosh, Devin Booker and Khris Middleton.

"I feel as though I'm one of the best 3-point shooters to play, regardless if it's this year, last year or when I was 4-years old," Smith added.
