NBA 24/7 365:
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 to keep your strings tucked in, but what about those darned pockets? Well, you can simply pull them out and let ‘em hang, or you can wear your sweats completely inside out. JR does the latter, and cuts them off just below the knee.
Official –Swag-O-Meter– Rating:
This is fly. It wouldn’t work with any article of clothing other than sweatpants, and it’s a must that they be turned into cut-off shorts… but JR’s pulling it off. I’ve rocked my sweats with the pockets flopped out before, but strictly for function, not fasion. This is a functional fashion statement. JR’s lady doesn’t appear to be very impressed, but what the f@ck does she know? She has tattoos all over her damn face.
Well done, JR. You’re a worldwide leader in swag.
BEST OF MAXIM
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...
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 [...]
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. More »
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.
In a recent game China side, JR Smith was hungry for ankles — and by George, he feasted!
Lenzelle Smith Jr., least known of OSU's five starters, scored 28 points in Sunday's win over Indiana, maybe making the Buckeyes even tougher to defend for future opponents. Links to more Buckeyes stories.
