JR Smith Orders $3K in Room Service, Just to Annoy Hotel Staff


JR Smith is known for making poor decisions and it doesn’t seem like this perceived image bothers him in the slightest. According to Larry Brown Sports, Adrian Wojnarowski has been reporting several disturbing childish and immature things that Smith did while playing with Zheijiang of the Chinese Basketball League during the NBA lockout. Allegedly Smith was making insane demands about the kind of car the team needed to give him and would also miss practice on several occasions to go shopping instead.

There is also one report of Smith running up the team hotel bill on expensive room service just because he was apparently bored and wanted to see the staff bring the food.


Perhaps his greatest excess of idiocy had been a weekend of running a room service bill into the proximity of $3,000, a source with direct knowledge told Yahoo Sports. He kept ordering food, stacking piles of trays upon trays – “just to see if they would keep bringing it to the room,” the source said.

Smith seems to never have any remorse for any of his ill-advised actions, but he’s slowly working his way out of the NBA and his lucrative salary.
