J.R. Smith could be a huge addition for the Knicks as the season progresses. Now that their back court has been stabilized by some dude named Lin, Smith could provide New York with the player they need off the bench to drain clutch three pointers and hit big shots. Smith contributed immediately in his first game on Sunday, as he scored 15 points during a 104-97 win over Dallas. Another thing he’ll apparently be bringing to the Knicks is his bizarre haircut.
As you can see above, Smith’s new haircut looks like he was about to replicate LeBron James’ hairline but decided against it at the last second. We’re not ready to call his new look dumber than Carlos Boozer’s attempt at pretending he’s not bald, but what’s going on here? Is this a new fashion trend? I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised. J.R. is his own breed. We didn’t forget that just because he played in China for a few months.Google+
