    i feel bad for JR Smith he is taking so much heat for being a bad guy, getting away with murder, etc.

    this is his friend and he is going through rough times as it is. he has to live life knowing he killed his best friend. i think it is a fair sentance.

    however, i dont understand how he has notlearned his lesson, getting 2 speeding tickets since the accident. unreal.

    Ah yes, the privileges of being a public figure when it comes to the legal system...

    This is especially ignorant:

    "He's 23 years old; he's a tough kid and he's going to do these four weeks and come out a better person," said Kevin Hextall, an attorney representing Smith.

    So I guess getting two speeding tickets AFTER the accident is "coming out a better person?" Doing the time and "service" after all of that isn't going to change anything. But of course, the lobbying is to be expected from his attorney.

    Let's be real here ladies and gentlemen - he's not going to learn or change from this incident much at all. A lot of these wannabe thug athletes will never learn (those of today and in the future). If you want to believe the mask they put on as a good face for the media, go ahead.

    And don't be so naive as to counter with "but they're people too!" Actually, that's the problem - they're not just people, they are public figures in the spotlight. Too many celebrities don't realize that they can't be a normal person, which is what the media has done to those that they advertise, sell, and market to the masses. These guys think they're untouchable, and to an extent they are, precisely because the influence media has on businesses such as the NBA and all sports in general. Which is terrible IMO - that they indeed are untouchable in a sense that the law is not consistently exercised on public figures to the same extent as on the everyday person. But such is public influence and fame...

    I like JR Smith.
    And hopefully he matures while he is in jail.

    He came straight from high school which helped his cockiness so I think he needs some time away to get his mind straight.

    Just like When Birdman got kicked out of the league for 1-2 seasons due to drugs.

    Jeez, Smith gets charged 90 days for this but drunk driving charges by Stallworth only gets 30, gotta love our legal system

    JR wont learn anything, as much as people want to think that, theres a reason he got 2 speeding tickets since..because he HASNT LEARNED ANYTHING

    I agree 100% on both points. I don't think he'll learn one thing. He may even resent the legal system.
