WASHINGTON — To be perfectly frank, a headline containing the words “Jason Smith” and “All-Star” was not in the plans for this season, or any season for that matter.

Yet here we are, on Jan. 7, talking about Jason Smith and his All-Star votes.

I mean, just look at this cascade of endorsements that befell the 30-year-old big man from Colorado after he threw together a cool statline of 10 points (5-for-8 shooting), 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks (one on reigning Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns, one on a dunk attempt by the best dunker in basketball, Zach LaVine), 0 turnovers, 0 fouls in 22 minutes.

(This one still counts, technically.)

(Cheering is important, too.)

And what does the humble star-in-the-making do with his litany of All-Star votes? He graciously asks you consider one of his less-heralded teammates for the honor.

Jason Smith is the real MVP.
