President Obama just took a stand on the NBA Finals ... saying there's no way J.R. Smith has a chance to outshoot Steph Curry ... despite the fact Smith has been ON FIRE in the playoffs.
Obama went to Twitter to answer some questions ... when someone wrote:
"Can JR Smith out shoot Steph Curry and lead the Cavs to a championship?"
Obama's response -- "jr smith having a great season but the heart of the Cavs is Lebron. And no one can outshoot Curry - maybe Korver if wide open."
So far, no response from Smith ... but we're guessing it's coming.
