J.R. Smith just got back into the NBA and he is already complaining.
The Los Angeles Lakers guard was recently told to end one of his Instagram Live sessions from inside the NBA bubble, because he was “exposing too much sh*t.”
During the sessions, Smith could be heard being extremely critical of the team hotel, complaining about the food, the blankets and more.
At one point during a video, Smith showed off a high-tech NBA-issued bracelet that will “help with early detection of coronavirus; track temperature, respiratory and heart rate.” He said “Got my little band and sh*t so they can keep tabs on me. Tracking device. Stay woke.”
He also took issue with the snack foods in the room as well.
“We’re professional athletes and all that,” Smith said … pointing out how some players make “$30, $40, $50 million a year.”
“But, then you be over there crying talking about somebody can’t stay healthy and their body is breaking down and all this other sh*t?”
“You wanna motherf*king Ferrari to run like a Ferrari cause you paid for it as a Ferrari … but you keep gassing it up with Chrysler sht.”
Smith also went into the hallway and live-streamed some of his Lakers teammates as they were getting food.
Soon after that, Smith suggested he’d been contacted by either Lakers or NBA management and was told to shut down his IG Live.
“Aw man, they mad at me bro,” Smith said … “I’m gone. Just got the text. Exposing too much sh*t. Gotta go. My bad. My bad.”
