When the NBA was locked out for the beginning of the 2012 season, J.R. Smith decided that he had better things to do than sit around in his crib all day and let his game go stale. So, he took off for China and signed to play with the Zhejiang Golden Bulls in the Chinese Basketball Association. Like most every NBA player that takes his game over to the Far East, Smith was able to absolutely dominate at this level of competition.
Coming off of the bench, Smith could score nearly at will, including one contest when he put up 60 points. And this success came despite the fact that he missed nearly every single practice during his time with the club. So, basically, instead of sitting around at his house in the U.S. all day, J.R. decided that he'd rather sit around at his place in China, and get paid for it. Very savvy, Swoosh.
