PLAYERS: J.R. Smith
TEAMS: New York Knicks
This tells me two things. 1- JR Smith took some time out to see what Rihanna was saying about him on Instagram Rihanna Says JR Smith is “Desert Thirsty”, Who is Hungover During Games 2- JR was ready for the question. JR Smith on Rihanna: “I’m not worried about Instagram, I’m worried about the playoffs.” #Knicks — Ian Begley (@IanBegley) May 17, 2013 It is important that he takes the high road, because if the Knicks have any chance to win the series, they need his head in the game, not at the club and definitely not on Rihanna.
