about JR Smith

JR Smith is a professional basketball player for the New York Knicks. He decided to skip college in 2004 and made himself eligible for the NBA Draft. He was the 18th pick  in the first round and was picked by the New Orleans Hornets. 

Off the court, JR gets some action too. He was in a car accident with his teammate Carmelo Anthony in 2007. Good thing that neither of them was injured . But Smith’s driving record isn’t impressive. He’s been in a string of car accidents and traffic violations causing him a number of suspensions from the NBA and a huge amount of fines as well.

JR is rumoured to be dating singer Rihanna. But when he’s not dating, playing basketball, or getting into road accidents, JR takes care of his two daughters with Carmelo Anthony to assist him as their godfather.
