JR Smith Is Statistically A Better Player When Lil Wayne Drops New Music


JR Smith built an NBA career on giving zero f*cks.

That's evident by his shot selection on the court and his decision making off it.

But while he might be one of the most unpredictable athletes in all sports, one thing is for certain: He goes off whenever Lil Wayne drops new music.

According to this dope study by Kenny Ducey of Hashtag Important, it's true. Whenever Weezy drops a new album or mixtape, Smith's shooting average jumps up. Way, way up.

Ducey wrote,

Sure, this might be some crazy coincidence, but mind you, JR Smith actually became one of the first athletes to join Young Money (hence the neck tat), and we all know who his favorite rapper is.
