J.R. Smith '18

J.R. has one of the quickest and best releases in NBA2k19 MyTeam. He can hit it from anywhere on the court, and the timing for his pull up and leaner are similar to his stand still jumper, so timing is never an issue. He is also very fast and has a good post fade for quick bail-outs. His handles are unbelievable and he breaks ankles very often, even just on a stepback. I run him at the two because his HOF Limitless and Deep Range help with trail cheese. Even when he's cold, don't be afraid to take difficult shots because most of the time, they still go in. His leaner is the third best I have used all year only behind Hedo/AK47, and PG13.
This might be controversial, but defense. J.R. can lock down most smaller players and his lateral quickness allows him to keep up with almost anyone, but whenever I go into TTO with him, he gets abused down low. On Unlimited it isn't much of a problem though.
Recommended Strategy: Shoot a lot of leaners, outshoot your opponent
Use if: You want a lights out shooter who can also handle the ball
Don't use if: You like slower releases, or if you need a lockdown defender
Bottom Line: One of the best cards in the game, really good value
