1. There’s been constant speculation about why J.R. Smith’s game has suffered so much during the NBA Playoffs.
2. As the Knicks struggle during their second round series against the Indiana Pacers, Smith’s social habits have been under the media microscope.
Smith has vehemently denied these rumors on his Twitter account.
7. But Rihanna apparently had her own take on the situation.
The pop star, who has been linked romantically with Smith, posted a nasty response to a random commenter on Instagram this afternoon. In it, she calls the Knicks “wack” and accuses Smith of clubbing before games.
9. The comment has since been deleted.
