Found May 17, 2013 on Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
The Knicks had their backs against the wall on Thursday night. Down 3-1 to the Pacers and with their game four star George Hill out with a concussion, the Knicks had to come out swinging. New York won 85-75 but after the game, the most important question on everyone’s mind? How would Sixth Man of the Year, JR Smith respond to Rihanna’s comments that he was “desert thirsty” and that his shot was off because he parties too much and has a hangover? Smith took the high road and stated, “I’m not worried about Instagram, I’m worried about the playoffs.” Smart move Earl! He really can only address this through his play. If he claps back, he looks weak. But wait until the playoffs are over. JR is the king of emo subtweets and I assure you a tweet or Instagram will end up on social media.   J.R. Smith’s response to Rihanna question: “I’m not worried about Instagram. I’m worried about the playoffs.” — Tim Bontemps (@TimBontemps) May 17, 2013   Plus, Rihanna can always his JR with “still got mo money.” How many times has he dealt with a woman that can say that to him? **UPDATE** What did I tell you. This is a small lil softball toss… I’m waiting for a bigger one later. But shout out to you Earl, way to be cute.
