J.R. Smith: ‘I Just Want to Be Somewhere I Can Make a Difference’

J.R. Smith has been a free agent for what seems like forever. For a player who opted out of his $6.4 million deal for the 2015-16 season, one would think that Smith would have been signed by now.

J.R. Smith: We didn't run out of gas

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been famously short-handed in the NBA Playoffs, and especially in the Finals. Without the injured Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving, head coach David Blatt has leaned on a short rotation. Fatigue has looked to be an issue, and the Cavs have been outscored in the fourth quarter of every game but Game 1.1 Cavs guard J.R. Smith, however, would not use fatigue...
