The standout point guard who recently finished his career at UD hopes to start an online clothing store, but there is a familiar problem for any startup: Money. 

So Smith did what any good entrepreneur would do these days: He started a GoFundMe. 

“Playing basketball has opened many doors for me, it also helped me brainstorm about life,” he wrote on the account. “One idea that came to my mind was to start an online clothing store. 

“I have been working on this concept for well some time now and believe I am well prepared to start my business venture. One challenge I have came across was money for inventory. If I ever get the opportunity to acquire the inventory it will be the start of life outside of basketball that I am ready for. It will be greatly appreciated. if anyone was willing to contribute to my project. The support will mean a lot.

“Help spread the word!”
