J.R. Smith's Journey to College and Golf Featured in New Prime Video Docuseries


A championship teammate of LeBron James will be in a docuseries.


J.R. Smith, a New Jersey native, two-time NBA champion and former shooting guard with the Los Angeles Lakers, Cleveland Cavaliers, Denver Nuggets, New Orleans Hornets and New York Knicks, will be featured in a four-part docuseries on Prime Video that will focus on his golf aspirations at HBCU, North Carolina A&T.



Redefined: J.R. Smith, which will be available to stream on April 4, is produced by LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s Uninterrupted banner.


The much-anticipated series will tell the story of the next chapter of Smith, who won NBA championships on the Lakers and Cavs with the kid from Akron.


The first chapter of Smith was when he was drafted straight out of high school at the age of 19 in 2004 to the New Orleans Hornets.


Smith last played at the age of 35 with the Lakers. But the series will pick up when Smith finds himself without an NBA franchise, redefining his life and career. He intends to earn a college education and pursue his new passion for golf with North Carolina A&T – the nation’s biggest HBCU.


Smith, 37, has already been named the Academic Athlete of the Year, earning a 4.0 during his freshman year at the HBCU last year.


“If I’m being honest at all, I was terrified to go back to school…Literally, these assignments still make my head sweat. Overcoming these fears of being vulnerable and open about my disability has given me real power! Power no one will ever take from!,” Smith tweeted last year.
