According to Cavaliers reporter Joe Vardon
Told JR-Smith today in an interview with media
I hope Cavaliers trade me
Obviously, this is not first time we hear this news
A few days before
JR was exposed by media and voluntarily filed for resignation from team
But this time transaction application
With consent of team
Gilbert, owner of Cavaliers
Answer this during interview
And he said that general manager of team will deal with this issue
Soon after this
Official announcement of knights
JR-Smith will no longer play for team
Our team wishes JR and his family all best,
And thank him for his service to Cleveland community,
For Knights and in 2016
A role played during an NBA championship. "
Considering JR contract
Cavaliers do not intend to buy out
Two parties discuss the possibility of a deal
With LeBron gone
Except that huge Cleveland poster has been removed
After that, soul of that strong team left
The knight is also from
The team that once beat #1 team in East
I immediately fell to east
Team sells Korver
JR Smith will also be sold
Tyren Liu was fired
Love can be absent for a long time due to trauma
The current Cavaliers roster has changed completely
Many fans berate Gilbert's approach
But that's impossible
James' departure is also doomed
Cavaliers in slump after James exits
One win is hard to find from start
Even fired former coach of champions
But new coach is still in power
This brought team only two wins
Excessive management interference with team
The relationship between rookie and veteran is not harmonious
Exclude veterans who won championship this year
Even if team put in a lot of effort
But it still makes command look more problematic
I hope that drivers will trust veterans,
Reuse more dynamic newbies,
None of them were able to help team, and defeat is still hard to stop
2 wins and 13 losses
JR was unhappy with this heartbreaking data
In public after loss
He expressed his dissatisfaction many times
He thinks a bad team is not team and place he wants to be
"I don't think team's goal is to win,
Our goal is not to go out and win as many games as possible",
"I think goal is to educate players and lose lottery selection
I think that's what team was aiming for. "
JR-Smith even said in an interview
If Cavaliers always played like this
Then he is no longer interested in being part of team
"If goal is not to compete and win,
Then I won't be interested. "
"I was once on a team that only won 18 games in a season
But then goal was still to win at all costs",
"It's not about how I develop or how other people develop,
At that time, goal was always to win. "
How many people hate him
How many people love him
Those who love him should empathize with what happened to him
Rebellious character, passion for game
Explosive representation of a magic ball
And a tribute to JR's true temperament
But then again, people who don't like JR
I don't like it either
To his brain, which is often short-circuited
Often inaccurate execution
I also didn't like move in G1 final
All Cleveland residents should not forget
Prodigal Son JR hit two three-pointers in the second half of 2016
Don't forget after winning championship
Words that reveal true nature
"I've been an asshole many times in my life
My family helped me get back into basketball.
Many people spray me and hurt me with words
But that's not real me. "
JR also wants others to understand him
The Cavaliers still decided against it
Champion of past
"I don't want Cleveland to remember me like this"
Speaking of ransom
Smith said so
"I think this is for people I see every day
People in hall are unfair,
Unfair to team coaches, staff, etc.
I just think a ransom is different from a trade
I don't like the ransom approach. "
Tomorrow will be day James joined Lakers
Return to Cleveland for first time
Fighting old masters
What will meet him then will be
For example, fan booing scene in 2010.
The fans applauded him
To our regret
James will return to Cavaliers' home court this time
No former coach and good brother JR
But the actions of other former teammates
George Hill Leads Big Brother Support
"If you boo him, you're a jerk."
Korver expressed optimism
I will show respect to best of my ability
"I think atmosphere in arena will be very friendly,
By way, they must be very friendly.
Tickets must be sold out
People will watch game on TV.
I know him as a person
I also have great respect for his achievements in basketball.
He's best basketball player in world
We all respect him very much.
We fight together
I had opportunity to observe his daily habits
See how he behaves like a leader
He really cared about a lot of people. "
Blessings to fight alongside James for once
Good brother JR has a better future
I'm also looking forward to James returning to arena tomorrow
Challenge old master as a rival
