Jr.Smith posed for the cover of Bleu Magazine rocking Calvin Kelin pants, GStar hat and an Entree top with an Edwin D’Angelo leather vest for the cover , he talks about his tats, his love for fashion, his inspiration, and playing basketball with his brother Chris Smith.
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.”
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 shit look good. In the next three years I want to have my own clothing line.”
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 early life as a rookie … “Being 17 with 28, 29 and 30 year old ,basketball player 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 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.”
Boston Celtics Player Kevin Garnett ‘s WAS trash talking Melo and his wife La La Anthony By Saying Your… wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios,” in a heated Eastern Conference game at Madison Square Garden.(alleged comment)
Melo:“It’s something you just don’t say to men, another man,” Anthony said following practice at the Knicks’ training facility in Greenburgh.
“My mindset and motive of going back there to see him at the locker room and seeing him at the bus, I wanted to have a one-on-one conversation with him and talk about it like two grown men,” Anthony said.
Jr.Smith:“Melo’s a very fiery guy, believe it or not,” J.R. Smith said. “He doesn’t like to lose and he doesn’t like when people come up in his face. So it is what it is.”
