Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard J.R. Smith can add children’s author to his extensive resume.
Smith and his brother, former New York Knicks guard Chris Smith, announced the release of a new co-authored children’s book called HoopSmiths: J.R. and Chris Learn Teamwork.

According to the Amazon synopsis, the book tells the story of brothers learning about teamwork.
J.R. and Chris both have dreams of playing in the NBA, but they quickly realize they cant do it alone. Join these two brothers on their quest of commitment as they learn the value of teamwork and work toward achieving their ultimate goal!
There are jokes to be made about J.R. writing a book about teamwork the same Summer after making one of the biggest boneheaded plays in NBA history, but honestly, the duo should be commended from branching out and writing a book aimed towards kids. Teaching youngsters about teamwork is tremendously important. There’s definitely valuable lessons to be gained throughout the pages.
