JR Smith: "With 45 games games in the rearview mirror since the trade, I’ve been able to reflect on things, and now see it as a blessing in disguise. For me, being away from New York, my hometown, has led to far fewer distractions. In Cleveland, there just isn’t much to do after 9 p.m., so the days of fashion shows, shopping, and the nights out have been replaced by one thing and one thing only: Basketball. There have been unfair rumors that lead people to have misconceptions about me: that I don’t care; that I don’t take my job seriously; that I am not committed to my craft. It’s unfortunate, but people have been saying this about me during my entire career. It obviously bothers me and naturally would bother anyone to feel that people don’t take you seriously as a person. I see it in media commentary during each season, and I experience it firsthand when I’m on the golf course in the offseason, everywhere. Then after 18 holes, or lunch, or a meeting, without fail, someone tells me I am a completely different person than who they perceived me to be. Look, I get it. I understand that my appearance, the way I carry myself, the past ways I have handled myself on social media — all of these impact the way the public sees me." Medium

LeBron James switched back from No. 6 to No. 23 this season. No matter, he's still No. 1. James' Cavaliers jersey was the NBA's top seller for the 2014-15 season, the league announced Tuesday. James returned to the Cavaliers this season after four years with the Miami Heat, leading them to two championships. James wore No. 6 during his time in South Florida but went back to the number he wore in high school and during his first seven seasons with Cleveland after returning home to Ohio this summer.

Shortly after the Cleveland Cavaliers' 109-97 win over the Detroit Pistons on Monday, J.R. Smith was interviewed by the Quicken Loans Arena's in-house emcee. He was asked for his thoughts on LeBron James' second triple-double of the season and 39th of his career. "Who? The real MVP?" Smith said, his message echoing to the sellout crowd of 20,562 who were making their way to the exits. "There's a lot of speculation about who should get the award, but we all know who the real MVP is." ESPN.com
