J.R. Smith’s daughter proud of father for not getting kicked off team

Thursday June 16th, 2016

J.R. Smith’s daughter, Demi, is way too real.

Before Game 6 of the NBA Finals, Demi was asked about watching her father play in the NBA Finals. What she said next was incredible.

“I’m just proud of him because he made the championship without getting kicked off the team,” she said, leading the entire nation to burst into laughter.

Smith will try his best not to get kicked off the team at 9 p.m. ET. 

This is the reason J.R. Smith needs an entire show dedicated to his lif—wait, what’s that? He’s raising money for one? I’m about to go fund this project.

UPDATE (Early Friday morning): J.R. Smith was played the clip during an interview on SportsCenter, and he couldn't handle it.
