Must-See Video: J.R. Smith Plays Golf With Special Olympics Champion

It’s no question that J.R. Smith is one of the NBA’s best golfers. In fact, he’s so good that Michael Jordan won’t even play a match with him. Seriously. That should come as no surprise, though, seeing as Smith plays six rounds a week in the offseason.

One of those rounds, however, was not about winning or losing, or breaking par, or beating his opponent. It was about building a relationship.

Smith played a round of golf with his friend Brad Hennefer, a 25-year-old Special Olympics golf champion at the J.R. Smith Youth Foundation’s 8th Annual Golf Outing. Smith calls Hennefer “like a brother” to him, spending a lot of time together playing golf.

That’s not to say there’s a lack of competition between the two. Hennefer definitely gives Smith a run for his money on the course. Hennefer set the world record for a Special Olympics tournament when he won the event by 40 strokes.

That’s flat-out ridiculous.

The video below is not only inspirational, it shows a side of J.R. Smith you’ve probably never seen before. I can guarantee it will be the most inspirational and heart-warming thing you’ll see all day.
