Smith, who won two NBA titles with LeBron James in Cleveland and in Los Angeles, got hooked on golf about 12 years ago, and the bug has hit him so bad he wants to give it a shot in college. He’s enrolled at N.C. A&T where he’ll start classes on Aug. 18 and as soon as the NCAA clears him he’ll be a part of the Aggies’ golf team. Smith said a conversation with Ray Allen, another retired NBA star who is an avid golfer, along with conversations from Chris Paul and his brother, C.J., helped Smith decide it was a perfect time to go to college for the first time. “That North Carolina connection with Chris and C.J. was there and then I just had to figure out if I still have eligibility,” said Smith, who went from high school to the NBA in 2004 where he was the 18th overall pick by the New Orleans Hornets.
