My motto is, 'When in doubt, shoot the ball'.

— J. R. Smith

The most jaw-dropping J. R. Smith quotes that are simple and will have a huge impact on you

If you don't get offended by somebody scoring on you then I don't know what to tell you. That is like somebody breaking into your house and just taking your video game out of your hand and you just let it happen. I know if you do that to me, it ain't going to happen. I love my Xbox.


The reality is I'm kind of like an ocean.

Everything is calm, calm, calm. I'm good. When the ball goes up in the air, the waves start rocking.


I just try to just roll with the punches.

I mean, once the team pretty much starts closing out, just try to get in attack mode, and at the same time, try to find my teammates. It's kind of hard, hitting the shots I was hitting, to try and pass the ball, but you've got to figure out a way.


I'm not worried about Instagram.


I was actually worried about David Ross safety being in Cleveland.

I thought I had to be a bodyguard.


Who? Who is that? (J.R.'s response when asked about opponent Jason Terry.)


[People asked me] "Where is your million-dollar shirt?" I'm like, "It's underneath these $25 Hanes T-shirts I've got on."


Being down 3-1 [in the Finals] was the worst feeling I've ever experienced in my life.


At halftime [of Game 7], one of our oldest guys on the team, James Jones, came to me, and he's like, "Man, it's time for you to do something. You've been sleeping the whole playoffs, the whole final series." First couple of shots I got coming out, I was like, "You know what, I'm gonna shoot it." Fortunately they fell, and we started making our way back.


I'd rather take a contested shot than an open shot any day .

.. It's kind of boring when you take open shots


Being down 3-1 [in the Finals] was the worst feeling I've ever experienced in my life. I didn't want to talk to my teammates, I didn't want to talk to my wife, I didn't want to talk to my kids. And to come back from that is a lesson that you can come back from anything.


Trying to think about the rest of the team over myself or my scoring is something that I never really had to do before.
