It’s almost March and J.R. Smith is still without a team. He continues to work hard in the gym and is waiting for his chance. On Tuesday, former NBA champion (in 2016) had a Q&A session on his Instagram story.

When asked what keeps him motivated, Smith answered: “Knowing I’m still better than 85% of the players on the court,” per Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson.

The 34-year-old guard is confident about himself, but the teams are not making the calls yet. He was linked with the Lakers and his former teammate in Cleveland, LeBron James.
