This Time It Was The Media That “Shot J.R.”

June 2, 2018

Paraphrasing Linda Gray’s “Sue Ellen,” who famously said “it was you Kristin (played by Mary Crosby) that shot J.R.” on the iconic show Dallas, which I now realize rightfully, in my changed opinion, kept the NBA from being shown live via CBS on Friday nights, the media “shot” another “J.R.” — one more average than the other, even with the popular surname Smith.

The game was tied, he was not going to score after that rebound and I doubt his team Cleveland would have.

Yes, it was a bad play, but even in sports terms, nowhere near that bad and certainly not decisive.

It was checked upon, J.R. Smith did not steal nor has the “crown jewels.”


The beautiful, classy Linda Gray pictured above.

In still one of the highest rated shows ever in November 1980, Linda’s character revealed the well guarded answer as to who/whom shot J.R.
