    Default JR Smith To sign with Lakers

    Sources tell me that J.R. Smith has already decided where he will sign once his season ends in Zhejiang, China. The talented shooting guard will forego better offers and the promise of a starting role in order to come off the bench for the Los Angeles Lakers. He sees the opportunity to play alongside superstar Kobe Bryant as too much to pass up. He also feels that, after a short stint in this season in L.A., he can then sign a long-term deal and recoup the money. Smith sees the Lakers as one more perimeter scorer away from being serious title contenders. Other teams with strong interest in J.R. are the San Antonio Spurs and New York Knicks.

    Regarding J.R. Smith joining the Lakers: my sources are here in the U.S. and have known Smith a very long time. They're in frequent contact.
    Personally I do not mind I dont think we need a ball stopper.

    I want us to sign him, but Allen Iverson is better.

    Honestly I don't care too much. He would start for us, but i am liking the shooting touch Novak seems to be bringing to the table. We would also be sacrificing minutes for fields/shump/lin by bringing him in. Those guys could use the floor time to get their confidence sky high and the chemistry right. I'm actually pretty excited to see this team play through a tough stretch without amar'e and melo. And when amar'e and melo are in the game, do we really need another ball dominant scorer or could we use more of the hustle/defense guys we have in fields/shump?

    Friday against the lakers will be a great test for this team.

    Not a team player would of killed the development to Fields and Iman. Would make a great 6th man for the Lakers.

    It would of been a nice sign but with Novak shooting the way he is, we dont need Smith for outside shots.

    TWITTER (JR Smith): Y'all really think kobe wants me on his team? Lol

    Only place I've seen this JR 2 da Lakers was on this thread.

    Nothing will be known until he gets his Letter of Clearance from FIBA

    Still, I dont want this guy messing up the fine chemistry this team has right now.

    With LIN playing like this: WHO CARES.

    Actually, seeing Lin step up might sway JR to sign with the Knicks. Fields is stepping up. Novak gaining confidence. We'll bring somebody in before the deadline either way. A piece that will help. Plus we'll get Baron back.

    Baron & Lin could be this year's version of Kidd & JJ B. Chandler is Chandler. Carmelo will be our Dirk. Amar'e our Marion & more. Shumpert our Stevenson.

    Could it be?

    Please don't make me get excited for this team again. lol

    If everything works out.....

    Toney Douglas- Jason Terry
    Novak- Peja
    Jeffries- Marion with no offense?
    Jordan- Ajinca
    Jorts- Haywood

    This team WAS/IS always a PG away from a special run this season. All it takes is for us to get hot-healthy when the time comes.

    Playing MIA in the first round, before they gather momentum might be exactly what's necessary. Plus we match up well with them.

    We saw how lethal Carmelo-State could be in the first 2 games of BOS series last year. The key is having a PG contorl the rock and decide who gets the ball (Amare, Melo, other). Anthony & Stoudemire are 2 of the game's best finishers. But they're not facilitators.

    Lin doesn't need to be Steve Nash. Just as long as he's much better than Douglas-Shumpert. Rondo, Chalmers, etc... benefit from playing with stars. Lin just gives us another scoring option, and allows us to run pick-&-roll.

    You guys are crazy for not wanting JR Smith on this team. He would kick ass in this system and would be our 3rd scorer that we need. Plus we can move Fields to backup SF which I think would suit him better....... and I think the Clippers will try and go after JR Smith now with Billups done for the season.
