JR Smith hits half-court shot to win $30,000 for a military member

There’s no clearer sign that basketball is back than JR Smith casually swishing a half-court shot and following it up with his trademark windmill-air-guitar celebration.

The play happened following Cleveland’s annual Wine and Gold intra-squad scrimmage. By draining the shot, Smith won $US30,000 for a military member. 

Here’s the full play.


 And here it is, reposted on Smith’s personal instagram with the following caption: “#JustDoingWhatIDo #ForTheTroops30k.” Oh how we missed you, JR.
