PLAYERS: J.R. Smith
TEAMS: New York Knicks
J.R. Smith became $24 million richer this summer, but despite a report by the NY Post, the Knicks shooting guard did not purchase a $450K military armored Ghurka F5, despite rolling up to a restaurant last week in the driver’s seat.  The monster vehicle actually belongs to some friends of his who are in rap group SBOE (Slow Bucks Over Everything).  Smith actually posted photos of the truck on his Instagram, in which you can see the group’s logo tagged on the driver and passenger doors.
