J.R. Smith (Zhejiang Golden Bulls)
Smith demanded five-star accommodation and other privileges during his two-month stint with the Golden Bulls, and also gave the team's management a few headaches, but he single-handedly lifted its media exposure and ticket sales through his on-court performances.
The former Denver Nugget topped the CBA's scoring table with 34.4 points per game, but failed to steer the team to the playoffs and, as expected, returned to the United States to join the New York Knicks after his contract ended.
