After a postseason that saw him potentially costing himself millions of free agent dollars after tussling with Jason Terry and being pictured in Rihanna’s general vicinity one would think J.R. Smith would attempt to avoid the limelight a wee bit as he heads into his second full season with the New York Knicks. Not J.R.’s style apparently as he’s drawn needless criticism from Knick coaches for changing his hair color and the eyes of New York’s tabloid press as he rolls around in a vehicle that no civilian should ever drive.

Flush with a new four-year $24 million contract from New York Smith has apparently spent nearly half a million to purchase something to keep him safe from grenade attacks.
