Earlier in the week, NBA legend Dennis Rodman posted an interesting tweet on the social media site Twitter saying that New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith was “The New Dennis Rodman”.
As you might figure, J.R. Smith responded to the comment with positivity and when asked about the similarities between him and Dennis, he stated that both of them had similar reputations as noted by ESPN New York’s Ian Begley:
“I think the reputation [is similar],” Smith said. “Females. Nightlife. Whatever people want to say about us, we’re kind of similar. I think just in general overall, the way we are. We work hard on the court, we play hard off the court, so I’ll take it.”
Hopefully, J.R. can get that championship reputation that Dennis earned over his career.
