Los Angeles Lakers newcomer JR Smith revealed what it means for him to play on the same team that the late Kobe Bryant played for. The 34-year-old security guard replied to a tweet from a rapper O’Shean Jackson Jr. who remembered that he wanted Smith to play with Kobe.
“Guess it, brother! I am honored to play in his memory as long as I wear the colors! “The new Laker tweeted. Smith should make his Lakers debut on July 23 when Los Angeles takes on the Dallas Mavericks. The first official game for him will be on July 31 against the Clippers.
