J.R. Smith turned LeBron James’ cryptic “Mood” Arthur meme Instagram post into a business opportunity. James’ post was a whole big deal that resulted in his Cavs teammates, including Smith, sharing their own Arthur photos after a win over the Knicks. The Cavs star even hilariously mentioned Arthur after their win on Wednesday night. So on Thursday, Smith unveiled these dad hats that are now for sale on the Team Swish website for $40 in three different colors.

But Smith admitted at shootaround before Tuesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks at Quicken Loans Arena that he hasn’t dealt well with a recent shooting slump and other on-court issues. He took it hard when the Sept. 27 signing of LeBron James’ close friend Dwyane Wade sent him to the second unit, even though Smith later regained his starting spot. Smith said he had to be better “personally and professionally.” Asked to elaborate, Smith said, “Me as a person goes hand in hand with me being a professional. Eating habits, sleeping habits, I can’t take the court home with me. I can’t just stay up all night thinking about the game, watching the game, watching highlights, listening to what people say, things like that.
“I gotta, when I’m here give my time to my teammates and my coaching staff and organization. When I’m home, give my time to my family and be able to defuse the whole situation. Obviously, my kids and my wife, this is a hard occupation and when I lose I take it hard. And I take it home with me and they don’t deserve that. I don’t want to neglect their situation because of what I’m going through as a professional.”
