There are few players in the NBA like New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith and according to a recent interview, it seems that Smith wants to take on a bigger role with the Knicks.
In an interview with ESPN New York’s Ian Begley, Smith stated that his main goal for the upcoming NBA season was to become a leader for the team:
“Be a leader,” Smith said in an interview with ESPNNewYork.com on Thursday at his foundation’s annual golf fundraiser. “We’ve got so many younger guys around. A lot of the older guys left within the last two years. So be more of a leader and help out.”
Sounds good to me, J.R.!
