J.R. Smith is making a run at Santa Claus' job this Christmas by hiding presents all over New York City and posting hints on where to find them on Instagram.
Smith is calling the eight day long holiday scavenger hunt "Swishmas" and the first present dropped on Wednesday.
Happy Holidays to everyone apart of TeamSwish! This year I wanted to connect with my fans in a fun way. For the next 8 days, I will be leaving a gift and clues on where you can find the gift on my Instagram! If you are the lucky winner, take a photo with your gift and be sure to tag me and use the hashtag #SWISHMAS !!! #TheFirstClueIsAFewHoursAway #8DaysOfSwishmas
The first hint involved some math as you had to add up Smith's season highs in points, rebounds, assists and steals to get the street where the gifts were located. It appeared the presents included a package filled with sports video games.
