JR Smith Reveals There’s Only One Teammate He Has Hated In His Career: “I Can’t Stand Him”

 

Aside from his on and off court antics and mishaps, JR Smith had a great NBA career.

He won two Championships and the league’s 6th man of the year award and has always been well-liked by his teammates on all the teams he’s been on. 

All things combined, Smith is a very likable character in the NBA, who has always been entertaining. JR has also always been well-liked by his teammates on all the teams he’s been on. So it seems hard to imagine seeing Smith beef with another teammate.

While making an appearance on the ‘All Things Covered Podcast’ with Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden some time ago, Smith revealed that he disliked just one teammate over the course of his 17-year career. That teammate being Sam Dekker:

 

“During my whole career, there’s only one teammate I really didn’t like. And he knows that. Everybody else I’d be cool with. Sam Dekker. This dude! I can’t stand him. He did some bullsh*t on the bus one day. He was talking some sh*t and I wasn’t having it…

…some people go their life not aware of somebody else’s circumstances. He’s a person who’s very aware of somebody else’s circumstances and wants to keep them there as opposed to help them elevate up. I don’t respect anything about that.”
