J.R. Smith became an NBA champion in Cleveland and gained fame (and more than a fair share of infamy) in New York, but clearly, part of his his heart is in… Denver.
While taking with reporters at shootaround before Wednesday night’s game between the Cavaliers and the Denver Nuggets at Pepsi Center, Smith revealed he and his wife will be naming their fourth daughter, “Denver,” according to Nick Hehemann of 9news.com in Denver.
Cleveland’s starting shooting guard spent five seasons — 2006-07 through 2010-2011 — in Denver, helping the Nuggets to reach the Western Conference Finals in 2008-09, a season in which he averaged more than 15 points a game.
Smith and his wife, Jewel, already have three daughters, the oldest being 9-year-old Demi.
