JR-Smith

Knicks star JR Smith wants you to know that he believes he’s one of the greatest shooters the game has ever seen. And he plans to back that up this season.  Smith took to his Instagram to make the proclamation, and then posted a bit of history to support his claim.

 

Men lie women lie but….

JR will be 29 on September 9th and currently ranks 30th in NBA history with 1,312 three-pointers made as he heads into his 11th NBA season.

Per Bleacher report, Smith has made 37.1 percent of his three-point attempts in his career, which puts him 29th out of the top 50 three-point shooters in NBA history. He made 39.4 percent of his three-point attempts last season, which was one of the best percentages of his career.
