“I don’t respect anything about him” JR Smith revealed why he ‘HATES’ former teammate with utter disgust

The worst teammate he’s had is a player 9 years his junior. Sam Dekker, who he was teammates with for a brief interval in 2018, is the player he’s talking about.

JR Smith’s NBA journey has been nothing short of a roller-coaster ride. Having being acquired in a championship team on last minute, to perhaps making one of the most foolish blunders in the game. However, it is indeed safe to say that JR Smith is one name that modern-day NBA fans cannot forget. Having played more than 15 years in the league, Smith has been part of some of the greatest teams in the leagues. 

On the same note, he has also witnessed plethora of talented players, be it with or against them. But there is one such former teammate of Smith, who he simply cannot stand. Being drafted into the NBA in 2004, to being waved off by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the early 2018-19 season, take a look which player is it who JR Smith desperately hates.

According to former LeBron James’ teammate, JR Smith, the worst teammate he’s had is a player 9 years his junior. Sam Dekker, who he was teammates with for a brief interval in 2018, is the player he’s talking about. In an appearance on the All Things Covered podcast with Patrick Peterson and Bryant McFadden, the two-time NBA champion revealed why he never got along with Dekker. 

In a podcast appearance on 2020, Smith said, “He’s a person who’s very aware of somebody else’s circumstances and wanna keep him there as opposed to trying to help him elevate up, and i don’t respect anything about that.”

So, for those who are not aware or cannot recollect who this player exactly is? Dekker represented the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers, and the Washington Wizards. Deemed too slow to find significant playing time in the league, Dekker signed with Turkish Super League team Lokomotiv Kuban as per the latest reports on his, last published in 2020. 

That being said, JR Smith has switched his career significantly to gold. Bit was indeed spotted practicing in a gym with LeBron. Could we assume another megastar joining the star-studded Lakers by surprise? Remains to be seen.
