JR Smith destroys the rim…but with no style points

It was a dunk…but that’s about it. No style, no substance. Just a dunk.

But since the Knicks are 3-0, everything around them is magnified.

JR Smith’s dad says he’s broke and should stay with Knicks

Yes…another “dead broke” story about an athlete.

According to JR Smith’s dad, the youngster is broke and needs to stay in New York and take whatever they give him.

Smith has mad about $25 million in his 8 year career, and $3 million in China. But somehow someway, he’s broke. Go figure.

 

A source told ESPN New York that Smith’s father, Earl, is going to make a strong case for his son to stay in New York, but “it’s very clear that the money is the biggest factor with him.”

In fact, when Smith chose the Knicks over the Clippers in mid-February after coming back from China, a source said the Knicks’ higher offer ($2.443 million to the Clippers’ $1.4 million veteran’s minimum) was the deciding factor because he was financially broke. Therefore, Smith will likely opt out and ask for the 20 percent raise. At that point, the ball will be in the Knicks’ court to re-sign Smith, who’s already said publicly that he wants to return next season.

Maybe..just maybe if he would have bought some land instead of all those shoes, he would be a little better off financially.

JR Smith shows off closet full of shoes

When your team gets eliminated in the first round of the playoffs, you have a lot of downtime. You enroll in college (look for that later), you go fishing, and you show off your closet full of shoes.

JR Smith, obviously either bored out of his mind or woke up one day and couldn’t believe he had so many shoes, tweeted a picture of his shoe closet.

 

If I owned 10 pairs of shoes in my life at one point in time, I was over doing it! WTF about this?
