The Cleveland Cavaliers had a subpar 7-8 January, but they are still on top of the Eastern Conference. Their superstar point guard Kyrie Irving is an All-Star, but he was also selected as a participant for the All-Star Weekend’s 3-Point Contest.
Kyrie Irving shoots 6.0 3’s per game. He was selected to the contest despite averaging the 22nd most three’s made per game at 2.4. Irving does shoot the long jumper at a relatively high percentage, 39.5%.
Irving will be accompanied by last years champion Klay Thompson and many other household names such as Kyle Lowry, Kemba Walker, Eric Gordon, Wesley Matthews, CJ McCollum, and Nick Young. Nice group, right?
