New York Knicks point guard Dennis Smith Jr. wants to accomplish a lot this upcoming season. He first, and foremost, wants to be a leader.
What does being a leader mean in the NBA? For starters, helping out your teammates improve and get better. Besides improving his game, Smith Jr. added another goal for himself this season. He would like to help the 3rd overall pick, RJ Barrett, win the Rookie of the Year.
That is a quality you want to see in one of your leaders. Barrett has already set this goal for himself to achieve, but having a teammate who wants the same for a player only strengthens the team.
