New York Knicks‘ reigning Sixth Man of the Year has become a trade piece that no one wants. His antics have taken the attention off his play on the court, which might be a good thing given his slumping numbers.
There was the whole untying the laces that resulted in a $50,o00 fine and now this story. Apparently J.R. Smith spent a weekend ordering room service over, and over, and over, again just to see if they’d keep bringing it.
From Adrian Wojnarowskii’s epic on J.R. Smith, Clown Prince of Basketball:
Perhaps his greatest excess of idiocy had been a weekend of running a room service bill into the proximity of $3,000, a source with direct knowledge told Yahoo Sports. He kept ordering food, stacking piles of trays upon trays – “just to see if they would keep bringing it to the room,” the source said.
All uneaten, all on the franchise’s tab – all a window into a fool.
You have to imagine the team approached him about the bill.
