"I’m going FU$&@ing NUTTTTTSSSSSS!!!": JR Smith Hyped & Emotional Over His 4.0 GPA


Two-time NBA champion JR Smith is now the king of the classroom, posting a 4.0 grade point average in his first semester at North Carolina AT&T as a student/athlete (on the golf team). He posted a tweet and an emotional video to illuminate his feelings on his grades. 

The tweet exclaimed "Grades are in! 4.0   I’m going FU$&@ing NUTTTTTSSSSSS!!!", then followed with an Instagram video, in which he couldn't stop smiling. 

“I can’t even describe the feeling… "I ain't even gon' lie to you, a lot of hard work went into that s***."  

Smith went on to describe how he hit the books from 8am to 11pm every day. 

"Straight schoolwork. When you're not used to going to school and doin' all of that sh*t? Man!... Especially when you don’t think you can do it… you always hear about your disabilities and all of this sh*t... I ain't gon' lie... I'm happy about that one.”

LeBron James' former teammate in Cleveland and Los Angeles had skipped college to go straight to the NBA almost two decades ago. So when the 36-year-old started his school year this past summer as a North Carolina AT&T freshman and member of the school's golf team, it raised some eyebrows. 

But JR just crushed it in the classroom (and, we assume, on the golf course).
