J.R. Smith has put together a very solid career for himself. While he's currently unsigned, there's little doubt Smith will find his way back in to the league at some point in the future.

His antics over the years have, in some ways, overshadowed just how talented Smith actually is. He has put together some of the best highlight reel dunks over the years, especially during his younger seasons with the Denver Nuggets.

One that really stood out was when he pulled off an incredible 360 Ally-oop from Chauncey Billups mid game.

There are few players in NBA history to have a chance to pull this off in the middle of a game, let alone the bounce to actually doing it. J.R. Smith is proof that sometimes when a player has that much raw talent, the other stuff doesn't really matter.
