Share on Nextdoor
Everyone's favorite mostly-shirtless Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith is known for making headlines on and off the court. But in a rather surprising turn, the father of all girls (who asked to be traded from the LeBronless Cavs earlier this season) has now written a children's book with his younger brother Chris Smith.

Called HoopSmiths, the picture book released in September follows two brothers as they dream of making the NBA one day, but soon realize they can't do it alone. The book, illustrated by Kris Carter, strives to teach kids the importance of teamwork.

Sunday, Nov. 25, just after Thanksgiving, brothers J.R. and Chris Smith are set to be at the Barnes and Noble in Woodmere at 1 p.m. for a book signing event open to the public. Find out more right here.

You can purchase the book, right here.

The following day, Nov. 26, the currently 2-12 Cavaliers take on the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Q. Hopefully, Smith can put that message of teamwork to good use.
