This decision had a lot of people cheering for JR, and sending him best wishes for his new journey. Stephen Curry and LeBron James were two of the guys who showed their support via Twitter. Recently, JR Smith played his first tournament for the North Carolina A&T team. He was beyond excited about the same and expressed the same through his social media.

LeBron James praises JR Smith for his wonderful collegiate debut
JR Smith played in the NBA for 17 seasons. During that time, JR Smith won 2x NBA Championships and was honored with the 6th Man of the Year honors once. Out of those 17 seasons, Smith played 5 with LeBron James. During that time, the two became really close.
When JR Smith made his debut for the North Carolina A&T team, there was no one happier for him than his brother LeBron James. James took it to his Twitter to show his happiness and pride.

While Smith’s debut wasn’t the best, he has a lot of time to get things right, and a lot of people backing him up.
On the other hand, LeBron James’ Lakers aren’t having the best preseason as well. They have gone 0-4, and things seem out of sync for them. However, this is just the preseason, and they’re still a newly assembled team. What actually matters is how they show up in the season opener against the Warriors on the 19th, and how they go on from there.
