LeBron Shares Awesome Photo Of J.R. Smith Shooting Over Steph Curry In 2016 Finals
April 3, 2020
The NBA won’t lift the suspension in the near future. The coronavirus keeps taking lives, and everyone is staying home. Staying at home is the only choice we have. That’s why you should check out some of the highlights NBA players have had in the past decade. Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James took to his Instagram to share a memory of Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals. This was a pleasant surprise for every basketball fan out there. LeBron shared a photo of J.R. Smith shooting over Warriors superstar Steph Curry. The Cavaliers won Game 7 93-89. They won the first and only title for Cleveland.
LeBron’s Los Angeles Lakers reportedly showed interest in the free-agent shooting guard despite the addition of Dion Waiters.
Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that the team is ready to “continue to monitor the market for a shooter.” They would have to release a player to make roster space for Smith.
LeBron wants to see another photo of J.R. Smith in LA
The 34-year-old New Jersey native won an NBA championship with the Lakers superstar and the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016. He was unsigned since the Cavs cut him in July.
Smith was named the NBA Sixth Man of the Year for the 2012-13 campaign with the New York Knicks. He was averaging 18.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.9 threes across 80 appearances that season.
His production has seen a decrease, however, and hit the bottom last season with the Cavs. Smith shot just 34.2 percent from the field in 11 games before the team confirmed he’d leave the franchise while it sought a trade. Smith sat out the remainder of the season.
“Technically my whole career’s been in limbo, so this is easy for me,” he told reporters after being waived in July.
Smith was a great player during his primetime, and the Lakers may use his talent. But, everything is put on hold now, and we will have to wait for the coronavirus to leave us alone. A good laugh never hurt you, right?
LA has great plans for the season, and hopefully, these plans will become real. LeBron and Anthony Davis want to win their first title in LA. We can already see them celebrate.
