JR Smith - what a wonderfully gifted athlete!  But a real head case for basketball - probaly for golf too.

nah man, dude found his center with golf. been cool to watch him get into it. He belonged to our local club here on the west side of Cleveland and he's actually said numerous times that coming to Cleveland probably saved his life because there was nothing to do past midnight and we have great golf courses.

Happy to hear that.  He is such a superb natural athlete (bet he hits the ball a mile).

There is a video of him striping balls 315 carry effortlessly in an interview. I cannot find the video right now but he is definitely a fun watch and good swing. I tend to forget how tall of a man he is because for NBA standards he is just average.

He’s a solid player. I love how he retired from the NBA and then enrolled in college and used his NCAA eligibility to play collegiate golf at North Carolina A&T. 

I love golf

JR titleisted out lol watch is beautiful. Its amazing how many different athletes are intrigued by golf. I think its because its so tough for a sport that your not getting hit and the balls not moving. Lets not forget its peaceful and beautiful.

 

We have a few NBA player members here and ex-players from other pro sports. My favorite quote I've overheard at the range is "I'm already really good at one professional sport; I give up on this one..." in regards to golf. It really is hard.

Dude seems so genuine and happy to be out there. Very cool for him to achieve like he did academically throughout the school year, especially considering his own admission that school was never his thing. It's obvious he's motivated to be great at what he does now regardless of what it is.

 

That's something I think we can all get behind. Hope he makes the tour some day.

I don't think he'll ever make it to the big show as he's a 3 cap atm, but he's got tons of athletic ability to possibly get down to scratch.

Fair play never knew exactly what his game was. Even scratch would be quite the accomplishment
