Cleveland Cavaliers star J.R. Smith is on a quest to produce perhaps the worst show in the history of television.

Smith is seeking $450,000 on Kickstarter to fund his dream show called, “TEAM SWISH – Reality Show – JR Smith, Bodyguard, and Family.” (SLIDESHOW: Baller Babes: These Gorgeous Women Love Basketball)

The plot of the show, according to Kickstarter, is:

One of today’s most recognizable players for the Cleveland Cavaliers, J.R. Smith, has made headlines for almost everything other than his hustle and extreme skill set on the basketball court. His notorious NBA bad boy persona consisting of late night partying, women, and all-out brawls, proved to be casual tabloid conversation. But, since his run-ins with the law and the loss of someone who meant the world to him, he’s learned his lessons and turned over a new leaf. Now, he is a loving father, a philanthropist, a reliable teammate and engaged to his sweetheart. It’s time to get to know “The Real J.R. Smith,” and it all starts at home.

Smith asking for money to fund this project seems almost laughable considering he has made almost $50 in NBA contract money alone. (SLIDESHOW: This Gorgeous Olympian Loves To Show Off Lots Of Skin)


Also, Smith isn’t off to a great start. He’s been given a little more than $400 so far.
