Finally, some good news! Even though California is still on lockdown, that doesn't prevent LeBron and AD from getting their cardio in for the next season. But wait, who is that 3rd person riding along them? Why, that's the 2016 NBA Champion, 2013 6th man of the year, and PIPE God. himself, JR Smith. Why would Early Joseph Smith III be riding along with LeBron and AD in LA? I know why. Because the Lakers need a shooter.
While LeBron and AD were having an incredible season this year, they were still missing that one guy to complete the Big 3. That one guy who decided when he wanted to turn on the switch, or keep it off. Sure, this team is loaded with veterans like Dwight Howard, Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley, and Javale McGee, but would one more veteran hurt? Think about JR AND Danny Green on the court! I never got a grade higher than a B- in math, but that has to be a combined 95% shooting percentage from the 3!
JR doesn't need the Lakers, the Lakers need JR. He may have cost LeBron game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals, but everyone learns from their mistakes. LeBron isn't getting any younger, AD is in his prime, the dominos are falling in line. If the Lakers sign JR Smith, then you heard it here first! Btw, I'd probably lose concentration driving by those 3 players and crash, so props to the driver for playing it cool.
