J.R. Smith

27 posts in this topic

Would you want him? Could end up being a bad contract, but if we can find a way to dump BG, I would absolutely love to sign him for $5-7M per. He can be the scorer that we've been searching for and I'd love to see what he could do as the undisputed go-to guy for the first time in his career.

What do you all think? Only thing that concerns me is his off-court stuff, but I'd love to sign him for a deal in that range and see what he can do for us.

I'm probably one of the few that would agree with you.

I love J.R. Smith.

I liked JR too but he seem to not be a team player and is still very me centered.

To be honest, I don't really care what he is like as long as he brings his 18 points per game night in and night out.

I would not give a big contract to a player like JR Smith, it's how you get yourself in trouble.

I care if he is taking 20 + shots to do it and some of them are really dumb shots not in the floe of the offense.

To be fair, he only did that in New York because their ball movement was terrible. Carmelo is the most selfish player I've ever seen. If J.R. didn't force shots he probably would have had only four or five good shooting opportunities per game.

Somebody is going to be wiling to overpay for him.  I see him wanting more than 5-7 mil a year.

$6 mil for three years isn't bad for the best shooting guard in this free agency class.

I know a lot of people don't want to overpay, but if we don't resign Henderson or fail to sign J.R. Smith then we have regressed at the shooting guard position.

We will have to overpay in order to make sure our shooting guard position is taken care of.

Also with potentially $21-$23 million in cap space, we can afford to pay Smith up to $8 million per year and still be in great shape.

Talent, yes. Attitude, no. I like the man, but he can be a headcase. I'd wait and see after the draft. If somehow we're lucky enough to land "Ben McLemore", then no. If not, I might like to have him.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me that is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can't get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
