For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
J.R Smith has never been my cup of tea until this morning. Something about a nice, clean cut, well dressed man will make you forget that he is two seconds from clinically insane. New York Knicks' J.R. Smith got dapper for the Winter issue of Bleu Magazine and I must say I'm awfully impressed! Check out the photos and some excerpts from his interview.
On his love of fashion….
“It’s never an off day for me. Even if you have the frumpiest clothes on and you got swag, you can make that s*** look good. In the next three years I want to have my own clothing line.”
On his early life as a rookie …
“Being 17 with 28, 29 and 30 year old basketball players, there was sort of a maturity aspect to it. I had a great opportunity to start earlier than most people. So while a few guys my age are only four or five years in, this is my ninth year. So it really helped impact my maturity level.”
On his brother Chris signing with the Knicks…
“It’s going to be easier for me on the road. When you have seen a group of guys for several months throughout the year, [opposed] to someone who has been there your whole life it’s a totally different situation. I get to play basketball and go to work [with my brother] everyday. So I think it’s going to be real cool.”
On his tattoos……
“I don’t think I was addicted. Addicted is a pretty strong word. If you’re addicted you can’t stop. I can stop whenever I want, I just choose not to.”
On Michael Jordan as his inspiration …..
“Jordan is the greatest of all times. He’s one of the reasons why I go so hard and push myself to be the best because I want to be…not better…but just as good.”
The Winter Issue hits stands January 8th.
