JR Smith

Famous Events

JR Smith might be a good shooter, and sometimes streaky, but he does not have the best basketball IQ. He will commit unnecessary fouls and make some head-scratching plays if you're a fan of the team he's on and if you're coaching him. This was on full display in game 1 of the NBA Finals when in the waning moments, he got an offensive rebound off a missed free throw and dribbled to the corner and wound down the clock until it expired. The reason why this is a low basketball IQ play is that the game was tied, although Smith claimed that he thought the Cavaliers were leading at the end of the game. As a player, you have to know the game clock, shot clock, game situation. It is just about being aware of the situation.
