The Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly signing J.R. Smith for a run in the playoffs.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the team is “working through” the finishing touches on a deal for LeBron James’ former teammate in Cleveland to join the Lakers. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I can’t wait to see this. Do we all remember the last time J.R. Smith and LeBron James were on the same team in the playoffs?

Smith infamously didn’t shoot at the end of the finals game against Golden State and it looked like LeBron was going to murder him on the spot.

Now the band is getting back together for another run at a ring! This is the kind of drama the casual fans are craving right now.

It’s also been a hell of a run for J.R. Smith over the past couple weeks. First he destroyed a guy beating on his vehicle, and now he’s back in the NBA.

If that’s not winning, then I don’t know what is!

I can’t wait to see what fireworks unfold between Smith and James this time around. I have a feeling it’s going to be a ton of fun.
