Chris played in the NBA for a little while and the two released the children’s book, HoopSmiths. This children’s book is based upon them growing up together and falling in love with the game of basketball. The book has a wholesome message and speaks on teamwork.
Some of the book’s proceeds will go towards Smith’s charity, the JR Smith Youth Foundation. The website mentioned that it’s, “dedicated to assisting underserved children in their health, personal development, education and enjoyment of life.” The cover is a cartoon character of J.R. and his brother playing basketball as kids.
Even though the book talks about teamwork people on Twitter have been joking about how J.R. played during the NBA Finals. He became a meme after not realizing his team were down, which caused them to lose that game. Despite it all congratulations fellas on the book!
