J.R. Smith is like Matthew Mcconaughey in Dazed and Confused, it doesn't matter how old he gets, he will always dominate whatever social media tool he chooses to grace with his thumbs with. Most recently Smith took to Instagram over the weekend to showcase himself in a picstiched photo wearing a Devils snap back, some Jordan's, a gold chain and a red polka dot backpack. Now the picture itself was nothing out of the ordinary, NBA players routinely take and post selfies, but it was J.R.'s choice of hashtags that turned heads. He concluded his comment with a #nosandusky tag, which prompted a twenty minute discussion between my friends and I on how he intended #nosandusky to be interpreted. Was he feeling self conscious that his wardrobe, specifically his backpack, may have been giving off a child molester vibe? Did he want it to be known that despite posing for solo iPhone pics he has no intention of raping young boys? Or was it because he was wearing a Devils hat and Jerry Sandusky quite possibly may have been the devil reincarnated? The possibilities are endless, and the Weave will continue to monitor this development (stalk his Insta feed). In the meantime, let's get this shit trending!
Oh, and for old times sake- Damn you @TheRealTahiry!
