2015-16 Cleveland Cavaliers player review: J.R. Smith, model of stability?!

J.R. Smith had earned his reputation as a loose cannon early in his career. Now, he's the model of consistency. We know what we're getting from J.R. Smith at this point. That's sort of crazy, as, for most of his career, there was no wilder wild card than our pipe-laying friend. In his year-and-a-half or so in Cleveland, J.R. has weirdly been the model of consistency. He cans open...

JR Smith sees US Open champion and takes a drive

AKRON, Ohio (AP) Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith showed off a pretty good shot Wednesday - not on the court, but on the practice range at Firestone Country Club. In the presence of the U.S. Open champion, no less. And yes, Smith was wearing a shirt. Dustin Johnson, coming off his first major 10 days ago at Oakmont, first met Smith earlier this year at the Bear's Club in...

President Obama tells Tyronn Lue to have J.R. Smith put a shirt on

J.R. Smith’s shirtlessness has been a big topic on conversation recently, and it’s gotten so big that Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, is now taking notice. President Obama called Cleveland Cavaliers’ head coach Tyronn Lue to congratulate him on coaching his team to victory and ending Cleveland’s title drought, but he added a message for the team’s colorful...

You can buy a T-shirt that looks like a shirtless J.R. Smith

The second biggest story in the NBA as of late, outside of the Cleveland Cavaliers bringing a championship to their (formerly) desperate city, has been J.R. Smith, and not because of his play on the floor, but rather what’s been going on off of it. Smith has been shirtless since the Cavaliers won the championship. He came off of the plane without a shirt when they returned from...

Make America lit again: J.R. Smith for president

As President Barack Obama’s tenure comes to an end as the leader of the free world, a new presidential candidate has emerged to rival Bernie Sanders, Hilary Clinton and the impetuous Donald Trump.

JR Smith hoists Cavs fan over his head

We expected Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard J.R. Smith to put on quite a show during the team’s championship parade on Wednesday, and he did not disappoint. A shirtless Smith channeled his inner-Lion King and hoisted a young Cavs fan, who was on crutches, over his head. The execution was as great as the unpredictability of his action. He and Kyrie Irving celebrated like world...

Mr. Smith goes to a Cleveland Cavaliers championship parade

Cleveland is basking in the glow of the Cavaliers’ championship at Wednesday’s parade, and the city has practically shut down to celebrate the occasion. However, no one is enjoying themselves more than Cavs guard J.R. Smith. It was obvious from the moment Sunday’s game ended that Smith would be in rare form after his first championship, and so far he has lived up to...

JR Smith’s daughter has great quote about why she’s proud of father

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, it seems, because J.R. Smith’s daughter, Demi, stole the show during ESPN’s pregame coverage ahead of Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday. When ESPN’s Lindsay Czarniak asked Demi how she felt about her dad getting ready to play in the big game, the response she delivered was Riley Curry-esque. “I’m just proud my dad made it...

J.R. Smith’s daughter was motivation behind playing defense

Cleveland Cavaliers wing J.R. Smith is primarily known for his willingness to shoot the ball, and shoot it a lot. This has made Smith a somewhat one-dimensional player since he entered the NBA from high school back in 2005. With a renewed focus on the defensive end of the court in his 12th season, Smith has played a valuable role for the Eastern Conference champs. He’s attributing...
