J.R. Smith Has Moved on from Shoelaces to Vince Carter’s Headband (Video)
As you probably know, New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith is one part professional basketball player, and one part professional sh*t-disturber.
Last year the guy was named the NBA’s “Sixth Man of the Year” as the most valuable bench player in the game, and he’s definitely given us some amazing highlights over the years—such as his double-pump dunk on LeBron James in the 2012 playoffs, or the recent dunking and dribbling clinic he put on against the Cavs.
However, for every show-stopping play, there is at least one instance of Smith acting like a petulant seventh-grader—whether he’s videobombing opponents during post-game interviews, or untying their shoelaces in the middle of a game.
So what has J.R. Smith done now to warrant a 114-word introduction? Well, during the Knicks’ 110-108 loss to the Mavericks last night, Smith decided to mess with Vince Carter by messing with his headband.
Yes, it’s as strange as it sounds. See for yourself:
Wouldn’t you love to see Smith somehow wind up on the San Antonio Spurs? I feel like Gregg Popovich would probably punch him in the face on national television.
