As the NBA lockout rages on, more and more poor, starving, unemployed NBA players are fleeing overseas in search of work in order to feed their families.  But how are these players faring in foreign lands?  Here's our first update, featuring Andrei Kirilenko, Deron Williams, Tony Parker, J.R. Smith and Danilo Gallinari. Danilo Gallinari - Olimpia Milano (Italy)One positive of the lockout is many of the NBA's European players are able to go back home and play in front of family and friends.  Take the Nuggets' Danilo Gallinari, for instance.  Gallo is back playing for Olimpia in Milano, which is who he played for from 2006-2008 before he entered the NBA.  So far Gallinari helped lead the team to victory in it's first Euroleague game (23 points, seven boards) and has them near the top of the Italian League standings with a record of 2-1 (9.3 ppg, 4.0 rpg).Andrei Kirilenko - CSKA Moscow (Russia)Andrei Kirilenko also has enjoyed a homecoming, playing for the Russian (a...

The Assist: JR Smith’s Tattoo Honors Michael Jordan

Jr Smith is clearly apart of the “ink my whole body” crew. The latest tattoo pays homage to Michael Jordan. Jr has Jordan’s retired Bulls jersey and his jumpman logo squeezed into a random obscure spot on his stomach. Wait, I forgot the Jordan…2′s, I believe that’s the pair featured also. :shrug: When JR was with the Hornets he rocked #23 too. Tatted for life I guess...

JR Smith Is A Tattoo Machine

 I’m beginning to think that JR Smith couldn’t stop getting tattoos if you paid him to stop. It’s tough to estimate just how many tattoos JR Smith has, but if you wanted to go ahead and say he that he has mad tattoos, you’d be correct sir. As you can see, no tattoo on his body can wear the number 23 as JR and his tattoo artist have retired Michael Jordan’s jersey too...

Jeez Louise, there doesn’t appear to be one square inch on J.R. Smith’s upper torso that isn’t inked. He’s running out of skin, man.

J.R. Smith learning the good, bad of playing in China

The Chinese Basketball Association has an insanely high turnover rate for Western players who sign on. The basketball is different, but more so it’s the radical culture change that players struggle with, things like the food. J.R. Smith is getting some of that, but he’s adjusting. A fascinating post over at Sheridanhoops.com breaks down the…

Not surprised that this story has come out.
