Last night was a much-needed night off for the Knicks. Landry Fields, Jeremy Lin and Steve Novak all goofed around on the campus of Marquette, where Novak went to college. Baron Davis read the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue and got jealous. And J.R. Smith took a picture of a woman's bare ass lying on his bed and posted it for the world to see.
Yeah, that's pretty much what happened. (Link NSFW. We can't link the pic on a family Website, or on this one either, if we can steal John Heilemann's line.) We would have to think that lying bottomless (or whatever) on the bed in front of J.R. Smith while he's holding his phone is just asking for trouble, but hey, we're cautious that way.
The woman is a model named Tahiry, and she didn't seem all that upset about it, which makes sense, considering Tahiry's posterior is comfortable with the public spotlight and probably even has its own Twitter already anyway.
You know, if the Knicks would just start winning, J.R. Smith could become a sorta fun trashy cult hero around here. Not to mention a gentle, charming lover: What woman has not dreamed of a romantic tweet praising their arse's ability to distract them from watching basketball?
Cue Mitch Lawrence column lecturing Smith on not watching gametape in five ... four ... three ...
