The New York Knicks somewhat surprisingly brought back J.R. Smith this summer, and they will be without the guard for the start of the 2013 season, but that doesn’t mean the peculiar one doesn’t have news to make. Smith has always been a bit of rebel since entering the league at a young age. He has had some interesting antics while playing for the Knicks, but even tweeting a picture of a some girl's rear end didn’t get him into too much trouble with head coach Mike Woodson. But bleaching his hair? No no no no.

A couple of days ago, Beyond the Buzzer brought us the pictures of Simon Phoenix Dennis Rodman Smith with his blond locks. For what it is worth, that is more yellow than blond.

But according to Smith’s father, he is changing back to his natural hair color, because the Knicks’ head coach said so:

For what it is worth, Woodson said several months ago that Smith needed to act more professional, and while some may think this is a bit over-the-top, I think Woodson is sending the right message to Smith. Stop attracting attention to yourself by your ridiculous off-the-court actions, and get in line. Be focused on your rehab and get the job done on the court.

Of course, Mike Woodson can’t grow hair, so this might be a bit of jealousy.

  • like stop letting this kid or jerk act like this he either gets in line or he goes we don't crap like this.
  • "Of course, Mike Woodson can’t grow hair, so this might be a bit of jealousy." No not jealousy that's stupid. The NBA is a business and like most business you have employers and employees and in this case its about the employee representing his employer so yah get rid of the ******** blonde hair you are not making your employer looking good. JR Smith is a grown man and he wants to walk around like some kid with dyed hair. Grow up and act like a man.
