JR Smith’s History of Mental Breakdowns [VIDEO]
The mental state of Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard Jr Smith has been in question for most of his career. From going out the night before an afternoon playoff game against the Boston Celtics in 2012-2013 when he was with the New York Knicks, to his latest blunder in Game One of the NBA Finals, and everything in between.
It is a laundry list of questionable decisions and one of the most questionable is, why would one of the smartest NBA players, aka LeBron James, want this guy on his team? LeBron is the guy who pushed the Cavaliers to resign Smith after winning an NBA Title in the 2015-2016 season. The Cavs obliged and signed him to a 4 year-$57 million dollar contract. I feel as though King James should bear some responsibility to the actions of Smith, who like I said, he pushed the front office to have resigned. That was along with Iman Shumpert (no longer on the team) and Tristan Thompson who isn't a full fledged starter.
