Titans running back Chris Johnson and free agent receiver Mike Sims-Walker, both Orlando natives, are co-hosting a welcome to Orlando party on the first day of NBA All-Star Weekend. The list of celebrity guests the flyer says will attend includes a few NBA and NFL players. The one name on the flyer that stands out is J.R. Smith. We figure that refers to basketball player J.R. Smith, who’s currently playing in China.
Smith will be a free agent when he returns to the NBA and he is being courted by several teams. The problem is he can’t return to the NBA until his current season finishes. His Chinese team is currently 9th in the standings and the top eight teams make the playoffs. If they finish outside the playoffs, he could be back in Florida in time to appear at the party. His squad may miss the postseason, but I doubt he’s back in town for this one.
