Hooped Up: Atlanta Hawks:
In a recent game China side, JR Smith was hungry for ankles — and by George, he feasted!
BEST OF MAXIM

While most of the CBA was on vacation JR Smith and his Zhejiang teammates were forced to play a make-up game against the Xinjiang Flying Tigers. The game was supposed to be played back in the early part of the season, but it was postponed due to weather concerns. I’d say JR wasn’t too happy about playing during the break (which ends on the 29th), or maybe he simply woke...
J.R. Smith seems to be enjoying himself lately playing pro ball in China. We have some video evidence courtesy of SLAM which shows he hasn;t been too kind to his opponent’s ankles. One of the sets of ankles J.R. took off with were none other than Stephon Marbury. I don’t think I have seen someone have such careless disregard for three separate players ankles in one game...
Have you ever been playing basketball and gotten your hand stuck in your pocket? It’s happened to me before–multiple times, actually. I’ve also tried to shoot the ball and ended up with a finger tangled up in my drawstring. It’s a little embarrassing, and JR Smith takes preventative measures to make sure this will never happen to him again. It’s easy enough...
Here is video evidence that J.R. Smith's extended stay in China has, statistically speaking, involved more broken ankles than brawls spearheaded by his sister. Heart of Beijing has dutifully compiled video of three incidents: The first you see here actually caused an injury, and the final step-back took out Stephon Marbury of the Beijing Ducks...
In typical J.R. Smith fashion his stint playing in China for the Zhejiang Cyclones has been hit and miss. Literally. Smith has notched some impressive games overseas (like the 52 point, 22 rebound and 7 steals effort late last year) but not without a couple headaches along the way. Check out this video of Smith breaking [...]
Despite being stuck in China, JR Smith is making the best of his time by demoralizing defenders with vicious crossovers. Last night in Beijing, Smith made three of his opponents (including Starbury) look like they were on ice skates. Check the video above to see JR in all his splendor. Also, shout out to Steph for the 45/12/10 effort—we see you.
Lenzelle Smith Jr. got a late start in making his mark at Ohio State, but defense has given him the chance to show what he can do.
