J.R. Smith is the most polarizing Knick of this decade. He had many fans, many haters, and just as many people who had no idea what to think. Despite winning the sixth man of the year award and being the perfect right hand man on the best Knicks team since 1997, he ultimately became more known for his partying than his play, eventually leading to his trade to Cleveland in 2015.
His highlights from his Knicks tenure includes,
DJ Mister Dior captured this photo the day before game five of the second round of the 2013 playoffs and captioned it “J.R. Smith said pour it up pour it up, watch it all fall out, I give no fucks about Game 5, that’s how we ball out.” Legend.
and his personal favorite, grass:
Though booze probably influenced poor next-day play in several situations, marijuana is the only one that directly caused J.R. to lose time, serving a five game suspension to begin 2013 after failing three consecutive drug tests in the 2012-13 season and offseason.
Smith is the poster child of Knicks delinquencyâ??â??â??some of it fair, much of it not. But you’re looking at a guy who never let the world’s perception of him stain his love for life. He’s sharing shots of bare asses on Twitter in one moment and posing with his children on Instagram. He does not discriminate when it comes to vice and just about any party is fine.
J.R. Smith is the embodiment of “jack of all trades, master of none” when it comes to turning up, and guys like that are always strengthened by their circle. Smith was too busy shooting during his days in New York to be a true glue-guy, but that’s exactly what he is in this circle. He brings versatility with his vibes and is definitely in charge of rolling up and sparking.
Z-Bo scares the shit out of me on many levels. His game, extinct as it should be, has remained in tact and adaptable for the Blazers, Knicks, Clippers, and Grizzlies. Even more surprising is the fact that his career is even alive considering some very serious bud-related accusations brought upon him.
In 2010, Randolph was implicated as a “major marijuana supplier” in Indianapolis, Indiana. When a Cadillac Escalade registered to him was pulled over and found to contain marijuana and ammunition in hidden compartments, Indianapolis Police Lt. Jeff Duhamell stated,
“Based on information found in the Escalade, police later raided a northeast side storage facility, where they said Randolph rents four lockers.
“According to the affidavit, a police K-9 alerted to controlled substances in two of the four units, and police found more cars with secret compartments.”
Randolph wasn’t charged, but smoke continued to fill the air. The next year, after hosting a party on a charter cruise on the Willamette River in Oregon, Z-Bo met local dealer named James Beasley and invited him to an after party at Randolph’s mansion to sell weed. There was reportedly a disagreement in price (Beasley wanted $120 for a half-ounce, Randolph would only …
