It was one of those nights, people…

One of those glorious nights where we are treated to witnessing the proverbial ‘White Rhino’ of Sports. An experience so rare, you will always remember where you were and what you were doing when it happened. For me: I was in the living room, with the lights off, screaming like a schoolgirl, and eventually found myself running around my apartment waving a white towel around my head in a helicopter motion until I blacked out.

WELCOME TO THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF J.R. SMITH.

We even got ‘PIPE’ trending on Twitter in the city of Cleveland.

#NEVERFORGET

Test

Just when he does something stupid like elbowing Jason Terry in the playoffs, or, getting suspended for untying other player’s shoes during free throws, or, partying into the wee hours of the night before an elimination playoff game, or, knocking out Jae Crowder cold with a spinning backhand of death … he goes and does something like this … AND TOTALLY REDEEMS HIMSELF.

This is what makes J.R. Smith … well, J.R. Smith. He truly is the NBA equivalent of a Monopoly ‘Chance’ card, you don’t know if you’re going straight to jail, or, are allowed to pass go and collect $200.

It’s only a matter of time until “Bad” J.R. comes back, so, let’s savior this for all it’s worth. Lord knows if he’s going to be cured of his hangover in time for Game 2 on Friday.

Anyways: here is a full compilation of J.R. Smith’s epic night vs. the Atlanta Hawks in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
