    One mistake and a thousand haters forgot his share of the Cleveland Championship. Suddenly he's trash, suddenly he's no good.
    You make me sick. Will laugh to see him rise again before certain others.

    J.R Smith should stay and be the teams leading scorer you've already got one championship. Why play on a contending team where you won't start or your minutes being managed. STAY IN CLEVELAND avg 25 6&8

    It would be hard to see JR & Korver moved especially to a westcoast team because they under acheived in the playoffs...they wouldnt have key roles...other than shooting and defending..they need playmakers to help them score...3 team trade between cleveland, minnesota, and the clippers...

    Korver will be a Buck by the All Star Game. His only All Star appearance was under coach Bud he knows the system and is another 3 point shooter to go with already a good 3 point shooting team.

    Zakiyah Pointer 8 months ago

    The weird/good/selfish thing about jr Smith is he play really good when he likes the players he playing with and if he feels like he needed.. I know some ppl might say oh he gets paid to ball but some ppl struggle with emotion attachments.. Look at Lamar Odom career when he was playing his best or even Chris Webber. Everyone not built Ford tough and are able to shut their emotions off. I even believe Lebron personality affects his basketball play sometimes. Which is why some question is he the Goat bc we were used to killer instincts but wasnt really ppl persons Kobe Jordan bird etc.

    Honestly, I feel for JR...I think he's got gas left in the tank but Dan Gilbert and coby Altman fucked this team up.. He can still contribute on a possible contender... As a Boston fan, Fourth Korver you're more than welcome in the Garden

    Nobody want that bum ass after revealing himself as a scared player out there in the floor. If somebody picks him up they're nuts. Pay him the last of his money and let him skid into retirement, he's pedestrian at best...and there are better, younger players in the D league.

    SVG@ 4:23 "The best 5 man unit in the league." What a trash-ass, biased commentator SVG is both when covering games and outside of games. Curry + KD + Klay + Dray + ANYONE is better than any other 5 man unit in the league, and it isn't close.

    It’s not JR fault the Cavs lost the finals. No excuses to be swept then again you need and miss a special player like Kyrie in big moments to give you a chance to win the game and possibly the series
