JR Smith is from Millstone, NJ. He is 6’6″ 220 lbs and 26 years of age. He is officially in his prime and is a SG for the New York Knicks.
JR entered the NBA directly out of high school in 2004 by way of the New Orleans Hornets. His first season he did well , but in his second with the Hornets his numbers declined a bit. He was traded in the off-season of his second year to Chicago . Six days later he was traded again to the Nuggets and spent 5 years in Denver .
He was involved in several incidents on and off the court that gave him a reputation as a “headcase”. His average over a 5 year period was around 13 points per game. During one season with the Nuggets, coach George Karl benched him due to questionable decision making. He was known for his streaky shooting and his celebrations. When JR “caught fire” there was no stopping him, however when he was off , it was a mind boggling.
