J.R. Smith's greatest excess of idiocy

07:27 AM ET 01.10 | It didn't take long before the Chinese Basketball League that signed him came to regret the decision to add J.R. Smith. From unreasonable demands on the kind of car needed to curry him around the city, to skipping practices for shopping excursions in neighboring cities, to a relentless pattern of insubordination, Smith's bad act had never been worse. Perhaps his greatest excess of idiocy had been a weekend of running a room service bill into the proximity of $3,000, a source with direct knowledge told Yahoo Sports. He kept ordering food, stacking piles of trays upon trays -- "just to see if they would keep bringing it to the room," the source said. All uneaten, all on the franchise's tab -- all a window into a fool. Smith would be fined more than $1 million in that lockout season in China.

Congrats JGB in getting your wish come true and for your Knicks winning. Weird that both NY teams are looking like playoff contenders all of a sudden and at the same time...

true fans stick by their teams ....jgb , deep down is a Knick fan ....MMA is a magic fan that followed dwights exploits in LA, who was his favorite player

JGB stuck around through all the Isiah shenanigans, the bad personnel decisions, and the failure. Enough is enough. There's no reward for blind faith. You can't fix stupid.
