Is J.R. Smith a Nick Swisher Fan?

Alright, I know J.R. Smith’s nickname is “J.R. Swish.”  I suppose it’s a little clever since he can rain three-pointers at times and it almost rhymes with his name.  We also know that he likes flashing gang signs after hitting threes and using gang writing to Tweet.  Aside from all that, does anyone see the irony when looking at the above picture of J.R. Smith’s new “Swish” neck tattoo?

Let’s just say if I were Nick Swisher, I’d be flattered.  The new ink is conveniently located directly above the Yankee symbol he already had over his Adam’s Apple.  Maybe he’s a fan of the Yankees’ “Swish?”  Doubtful, but it’s fun to pretend a grown, male athlete has a man crush on another grown, male athlete.  Maybe when J.R. makes his daily LBS visit he’ll decide to get it removed Kenyon Martin style.

    While not a JR Smith fan at all, I don’t think he swings that way. As in Nick Fisher swings a bat. I’m pretty sure that’s not a NY tattoo for New York but rather a YM tattoo for “Young Money”. Either way it’s a bit over the top.
