Why JR Smith Not Making 2013 NBA All-Star Team Is an Outrage
To put it simply, Smith not making the All-Star squad is an outrage.

The guards who beat Smith out for an All-Star spot include Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Jrue Holiday of the Philadelphia 76ers and Paul George of the Indiana Pacers. Only George plays for a team with a winning record.
Smith, meanwhile, is viewed by many as the second best player on the 25-14 Knicks. An argument can also be made for Tyson Chandler, who plays the role of a defensive stopper. It's worth noting that Chandler anchors a rather average scoring defense that ranks 11th in the NBA.
Smith is a key to the eighth-ranked scoring offense.
Furthermore, Smith has stepped up in the clutch as well as any player in the NBA. For proof, check the evidence.
Smith has hit two game-winning buzzer-beaters in 2012-13.
Unfortunately, the coaches failed to grant him with his first career All-Star Game appearance. Instead, Smith will be on the outside looking in.
