Folks, I've just learned that JR Smith had a heart attack this week, and is in the hospital. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Update: JR is doing well. The doctors installed a stent, and JR will be in the hospital for a couple more days for observation.

John, do you have his phone in hospital ? If so, maybe you send it to me in email or PM ?

Glad to hear it, Jeff. Several people asked about him at the Amish checkers meet this weekend.

JR is such a huge contributor to checkers. I wish him a speedy and full recovery.

I spoke to JR this afternoon, and he sounded good. He is starting cardiac rehabilitation therapy soon, so will have some physical restrictions, but he is in good spirits and as busy as ever.
