J.R. Smith Gets Incredible Tattoo of His Daughter
- Updated: August 17, 2019
The NBA is a league where players have long been criticized for not being monogamous and family-oriented.
Smith, who will turn 34 in a few weeks, was one of the last links to the Cavaliers’ one and only NBA championship team in 2016. He was waived earlier this summer after a frustrating season in which he accused the team of tanking, saying that the organization was looking to “develop [young players] and lose to get lottery picks.”
His production also dropped in 2018-19, as he averaged just 6.7 points per game on 34.2 percent field-goal shooting, both career lows. His 30.8 percent accuracy from 3-point range was his lowest since his rookie season in 2004-05.
When the team won its NBA title in 2016, he made 40.0 percent of his 3-point attempts during the regular season, and 43.0 percent of them during the playoffs.
