From the NY POST:
NBA star J.R. Smith spent some of the $24 million he scored in a four-year deal with the New York Knicks on a flashy new armored truck. Smith, who’s recovering after surgery on his left knee in the off-season, rolled up to Meatpacking District restaurant Catch on Thursday night in a Gurkha F5, which is made by Toronto-based Terradyne Armored Vehicles and used by police and the military. Smith parked the oversize truck, worth about $450,000, on the street while he dined inside.
Because OF COURSE he did. I love it. I really do. J.R.’s crazy, and I can’t get enough. Color your hair blonde. Sleep with porn stars. Live-tweet your surgeries. Continue to share the gold you do every single day. We’re all more entertained because of it. Thanks for always making sure we fans are a part of it.
And, while you’re at it, go buy yourself a half-million dollar armored vehicle that has no earthly right to be driven anywhere on the isle of Manhattan — or any other place outside of a war zone come to think of it. Although, we know those crazy cobblestones down in the meatpacking district. They certainly can demand this kind of power. We get it. Don’t ever change, J.R. Don’t. You. Ever. Change.
