JR Smith admits he was ‘smoked’ by Michael Jordan while golfing

Over a year ago, two-time NBA champion JR Smith entered the world of golf by joining the North Carolina A&T golf team.

While building his reputation on the course, Smith is also pursuing liberal studies at the iconic HBCU and aims to raise awareness of diversity in the sport. But between his studies and his new sports career, the 16-year-old NBA veteran recently opened up about his opportunity to face NBA legend Michael Jordan in a game of golf.

While Smith felt like he was living a childhood dream when interacting with the six-time NBA champion, he didn’t put on his best performance.

“He smoked me,” Smith said recently complex sports. “In the first round, we finished tied. In the second round, he smokes me by like three blows.

And, in true MJ fashion, the match included some trash talk. When Smith was asked if Jordan spoke “s—?” “All the time,” Smith confirmed.

The 36-year-old also recalled making a bet with Jordan and the NBA icon taking a subtle “hit” at Smith’s NBA career.

“I doubled down on one of my bets,” Smith said. “I was like, five forward, five back and five overall. He was like, ‘Okay, cool cool cool.’ I said, ‘Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, hundreds, not thousands. Hundreds. And he said, ‘No no no no no, I know what you’re talking about. I know what you meant.’ And then he gave me this low-key kick, and I was like, ‘Ooh, that’s a good one.’ He said, ‘You had a good career, it wasn’t a good career, you had a good one.'”

Smith enjoyed golfing with his idol. However, he will probably want to perform better in their next game.
