The NBA's three-point contest is a celebration of the most important shot in basketball featuring the best snipers the game has to offer. And because of that, it would feel unbelievably wrong not to see Davis Bertans shoot at the competition at NBA All-Star weekend.
The Wizards get to see Bertans knock down 30-footers on a nightly basis, so they're doing everything they can to get their 6-10 sharpshooter an invite.
Washington lists just about every stat imaginable for why Bertans belongs in the three-point contest. He's on track to become the first player since Stephen Curry to shoot 43 percent on more than eight three-point attempts per game. Bertans leads the NBA in catch-and-shoot three-pointers made per game (3.2) and has seven games with six or more threes made, which is tied for third-best in the league.
Before Bertans missed nine games with a quad injury, he was well on pace to hit more than 300 threes for the season. Only two players (Curry, James Harden) have accomplished that feat heading into the 2019-20 season.
It's important to remember that Jordan McRae began Bertans' three-point contest campaign, and after the team tweeted out how the "Latvian Laser" belongs in the contest, he chimed in again with support for his teammate.

Bertans has solidified himself as one of the scariest three-point threats in the NBA, and especially in a season where Curry and Klay Thompson are injured, a player like Bertans needs to at least get an invite.
