J.R. Smith Helped Newest Cavs Acquisition Buy A House In Cleveland


Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard J.R. Smith is a pretty likable guy all things considered. Sure, he can be a bit difficult at times, but his laid-back attitude and questionable basketball decision-making make Smith one of the most entertaining players to watch in the league. Apart from the entertainment factor, J.R. can also be a helpful guy off the court as well if this story is anything to go by.

This is great news for Cavs fans, as it seems J.R. is trying to mend the relationship between himself and Crowder after a pretty tumoltuious past.

Back in the 2015 playoffs, the first year of LeBron's return to Cleveland, Smith was ejected in Game 4 of the opening round against Boston for essentially punching Crowder in the face.

This recent report can only lead to good things for Cleveland, as it indicates the pair have buried the hatchet, and hold no ill-feelings towards each other now they're playing for the same squad.
