Default Is Rodney Hood better then Jr Smith?

JR SMITH only gets playing time because he's been with the CAVS longer. Smith does nothing but stand in the corner and chuck. He could barely occasional beat people off the dribble 5 years ago...now he can't do it at all. After this season I don't know who will sign him.

Hood should get more playing time over Smith.

But JR shots faded away 3's, and can't dribble.

JR has been one of, if not the best spotup shooters in the league since his Knicks days

and he has the potential to play great D too

JR has proven he can be a good defender even when his shot isn't falling.

He's be so inconsistent offensively though. Love too.

Hood should get more playing time over Smith.

He's also one of the most powerful figures in the Land, very close to King James etc.

JR's defense in G5 of the Pacers series on Oldipo was just a joy to watch. Dude completely locked him up. Hood couldn't do that in his wildest dreams.

I watched James Harden miss 20 three pointers in a row. I never have to worry about that when it comes to Jr Smith.

I would too...but thats only because JR will chuck shamelessly, and Hood is a little more hesitant. Give Hood the green light to chuck at will like JR and he will be better.

Hood was supposed to be a first option for Utah at the start of the season. I hope he can play better than a 4th option !!

But it seems like Lue won't give him a chance. I would. In this finals, Cavs have nothing to lose. It's not like he would miss something important by taking Clarckson or Smith out of the game during 10 min anyway

Be careful what you wish for. Hood had the green light in Utah and they were losing because of it.

Bro, Hood is even worse than JR.

He literally can't even get in the game because of his anxiety.
