Tweeting a picture of your lady friend’s butt is a good way to cause domestic problems, but apparently, it’s a good way to forfeit a whole lot of money too. That’s what New York Knick JR Smith found out earlier this week when he snapped a shot of Tahiry’s rather large rear end and shared it with the world. The model wasn’t overly pleased with the situation, but she took it in relative stride. David Stern however didn’t find a whole lot of humor in the scantily-clad situation.
According to ESPN, the NBA Commissioner just hit Smith with a fine of twenty-five thousand dollars. The shooting guard has already publicly apologized for his breach in etiquette, but I guess the league felt it needed to make a statement. Take a look at the offending evidence below that is once again NSFW...
(Picture has since been deleted.)
I have no idea how Smith didn’t realize that picture would race around the Internet. I also have no idea how he didn’t realize it would reflect poorly on the league, but that being said, twenty-five thousand dollars seems like overkill for that shot, especially given intent. It was sent out with the caption “I can’t watch the game like this! Damn you”.
Anyone who’s ever tried watching a sporting event with a hot woman barely dressed knows the jubilation and frustration found in that situation. In theory, putting those two things together should be awesome, but more often than not, it’s sort of confusing and distracting. Clearly, Smith was trying to both comment on his annoyance and brag about the hot chick in his bed. Is that worth a slap on the wrist and a strongly worded statement? Yes. A twenty-five thousand dollar slap on the wrist though? Probably not.
