J.R. Smith apparently drives a $450,000 armored truck around New York City now

LINK

quote:

After a postseason that saw him potentially costing himself millions of free agent dollars after tussling with Jason Terry and being pictured in Rihanna’s general vicinity, one would think J.R. Smith would attempt to avoid the limelight a wee bit as he heads into his second full season with the New York Knicks. Not J.R.’s style, apparently, as he’s drawn needless criticism from Knick coaches for changing his hair color, and the eyes of New York’s tabloid press as he rolls around in a vehicle that no civilian should ever drive.

Flush with a new four-year, $24 million contract from New York, Smith has apparently spent nearly half a million to purchase something to keep him safe from grenade attacks. From the New York Post’s Page Six (via SB Nation):

quote:

Smith, who’s recovering after surgery on his left knee in the off-season, rolled up to Meatpacking District restaurant Catch on Thursday night in a Gurkha F5, which is made by Toronto-based Terradyne Armored Vehicles and used by police and the military. Smith parked the oversize truck, worth about $450,000, on the street while he dined inside.


Per Terradyne’s website, all their vehicles feature an eight-cylinder diesel engine that delivers 300 brake horsepower and (because of the diesel technology) 660 lb.-feet of torque. Each vehicle in the Terradyne lineup all weigh well over 13,000 pounds.

And also nobody outside of police officers or military personnel should be driving these, because they’re incredibly stupid. Shooting guards, even ones with Smiths’ questionable shot selection, should not be driving armored vehicles on their way to eat a $32 scallop entrée.

That’s J.R. Smith, for you. Everybody look at him.

Is it wrong of me to say that if I had the disposable income, then I would also drop 450K on that?

Want. As a avid outdoors man and fan/owner of huge trucks. I would buy this in a heart beat if I had that kind of income.
