Is JR Smith trying to have a go at a rather surprising NBA comeback? Honestly, I have no idea. What is clear, however, is that the former Cavs stud still hasn’t lost his stroke one bit.
A video clip of Smith draining no less than 10 consecutive shots during a warmup drill is now making its rounds on social media. The former Cavs swingman wasn’t even dressed for the occasion as he went full Stephen Curry in what was a truly epic shooting streak:

It looks like Smith was wearing jeans and a sweater which makes this feat even more impressive. The former Cavs stud hasn’t played in the NBA for two years now but what is abundantly clear is that the 36-year-old can still shoot that basketball.
Right now, Smith is keeping himself busy in college. Aside from being on North Carolina A&T’s golf team, the former Cavs guard/forward is also making waves with his academics. Smith has been working hard both on and off the green and he’s officially an honor student right now.
JR Smith played five seasons with the Cavs between 2015 and 2019. During that span, the 6-foot-6 wing averaged 10.3 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists, and 1.0 steals, while also connecting on 2.1 triples per game at a 38.1-percent clip.
