    JR Smith = JR Rider = Soon to be banned from NBA

    I think when you have your first name as JR, you are DOOMED in the NBA. Those that are old enough to know... back in the 90's there was a guy who had a lot of talent who initially went by the name of Isiah Rider before he became JR Rider was to me the JR Smith of his time and the resident POSTER CHILD of the Portland Jailblazers. I can almost PROMISE you that if JR Smith keeps it up, he's about to get JR Rider'd out the league for good. Honestly I see this as his future path.

    Isaiah Rider
    Career years: (1994-2002)
    Team(s): Timberwolves, Trail Blazers, Hawks, Lakers, Nuggets
    Career stats: 16.7 ppg, 2.7 apg, 3.8 rpg
    Accolades: NBA champion (2001), NBA All-Rookie First Team (1994)
    Reason for fall-off: Drugs and a bad attitude

    It's hard to believe that a person with J.R. Rider's talent only lasted nine seasons in the NBA. He was a knucklehead his entire basketball career, always putting rash decisions before his future. On the court, Rider was a scoring machine that could chuck it from anywhere on the floor. He was very cocky with ice in his veins and wasn't afraid to tell you about it. Off the court, Rider argued with teammates, coaches, spouses, etc. He had a drug problem as well, and before you know it, he was blackballed from the league. His talent didn't warrant the trouble that came with it. Isaiah could've been great but his over-confidence and invincible attitude betrayed him
    Sound familiar...
    AS MJ WOULD SAY " IS THIS SIGNATURE IN VIOLATION NOW..."

    Except for the fact JR Rider wasnt banned. Being waived by the Nuggets isnt the same as being banned. How exactly was he the resident poster child of the Blazers if Rasheed Wallace and Damon Stoudemire were doing the same exact thing? At least get your facts straight.

    Are there similarities, sure but dont blow this up like JR Smith is getting arrested for cocaine busts like JR Rider.

    Pretty sure nobody did that again until VC in 2000, than Desmond Mason did it in '03. Rider in '95.
