    When a grown man has to announce that they have "matured". That is a clear signal that that man is still a dip****.

    JR was done after the title: man during the Cavs title run he was really good. A guy who could basically go toe to toe with Klay Thomspon on defense and shooting and held his own.

    But man he's declined afterward: he just doesn't have the athleticism to make up for his mental goofiness.

    I think he can work as a spot-up threat in very limited mins.

    I wouldn't want him handling the ball most of the time he's on the floor; but I figure if he can carve out a niche with some shooting and can compete on defense in that role, I think he can be servicable.

    That's being optimistic, I know.

    But I did say "very limited mins"...LOL.

    I might actually look away from the TV when JR is on the floor...

    He was pretty solid today and as I mentioned in Game Time - he's in amazing shape considering he hasn't been playing since 2018. Moves very well.

    Low IQ play for sure, but he did have some nice plays too. I thought he was alright.

    This dude gonna come in and win us a game or two in a big series taking single digit leads to double figures in 3 shots. A game like today is exactly why I wanted him on the team.

    Just like the other clip on this page, this also is the type of highlight Smith provides.

    Hopefully he can give us a couple of dozen good games this season, and create a highlight reel worthy of enshrinement in the (J R) Smithsonian.

    He was straight up on fire yesterday! His shot looked so smooth. I’m with Doc Brown here. I think JR has some more in the tank and I think he’s still hungry to win another ring. At the very least other teams can’t afford to leave him open like they did with Rondo and Bradley. He will bury them if they do.

    Between JR, KCP and Danny Green, we'll always have a shooter that can't be left open out there. I like it. Plus JR has that ability to catch fire... great addition so far for a limited role.

    I'll be super happy to be wrong about JR. So far so good.

    Same. He has to earn his GIF emoji in my book. Same with any new player.

    I was looking for a Lou Williams gif on your website today and though he was here for awhile doesn’t seem like you ever did one? What’s up with that?

    :D
