JR Smith has been through a lot during his NBA career. Many people didn’t believe in him, he wasn’t disciplined enough on the court and he became known more for his off the court antics.
The trade to Cleveland and being under LeBron was the best thing that could have happened for Smith. He continued to grow and it showed on the court and more importantly off the court.
However, his biggest inspirations is his family and he gave such an emotional press conference about them.
Congratulations, JR. Great job.
