LeBron James is giving high praise to his old teammate and friend, J.R. Smith … shouting out the ex-NBA hooper as he begins his NCAA golf career … saying, “So happy and proud of you my brother.”

The 2-time NBA champ — who skipped college for the NBA in 2004 — was officially cleared to suit up for the North Carolina A&T State University men’s golf team on Tuesday … paving his way to finally becoming an NCAA athlete.

James is showing serious love for the 35-year-old freshman on Twitter … saying, “Love you kid! Best of luck you student/athlete … GO AGGIES ⛳ TEAM.”

But, it isn’t just a gimmick for Smith — the guy’s even been spotted walking around campus and hitting up classes … and has said he’s serious about bettering himself.

“It was probably one of the most exciting feelings I’ve had in a while,” J.R. told the Undefeated after being cleared to join the golf team.
