So, you know I had to jump in with my own list. I present my Top 8 Favorite JR moments – in no particular order. JR’s high school yearbook quote was hilarious and really told you what he was about.
“Get chicks or die trying”
JR showing off Tahiry’s thonged cheeks on Twitter. Then getting into it with rapper Joe Budden over his relationship with Tahiry on Twitter. Rihanna calling JR desert thirsty.
JR the sav offering his “pipe” via DM
and his Instagram response once the DM leaked. JR clearing up that singer and reality star KMichelle wasn’t his girlfriend, just a chick he took home for the night after a club. Classic JR shot

and Lastly, JR being awarded the “Sixth man of the Year” trophy. That season JR showed what he can do when he’s focused.
Check out JR’s message to the Knicks organization and fans:
I want to thank Mr. Dolan and the Knicks organization for giving me the opportunity to play for such a storied franchise over the past few seasons. I want to thank my teammates for their support and guidance. Most importantly, I want thank the fans of New York who are some of the most passionate basketball fans in the world. Playing in my hometown has been incredibly special and I will be forever grateful for having had the chance to wear a Knicks uniform. Though I look forward to starting a new chapter in Cleveland to join some of the best talent in the game in the quest for an NBA Championship, this great experience in New York will always stay with me. Thank you again, fans. Your support means the world.
