Is J.R. Smith trying to box out Leonardo DiCaprio for a Ri-bound? How long did it take us to come up with that pun? Why do you care about any of this?
Because Rihanna, that’s why.
Having just joined forces with LeBron James in Cleveland, the Cavs’ swingman finally plays for the kind of NBA team he’s accused Rihanna of being a fan of: the wherever “He-At.” (It makes more sense if you read this post.) Now it seems as if he’s in full-on campaign mode, tugging on the singer’s heartstrings over Instagram. Why not? Now’s as good a time as any to make a play for her — except for the whole Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio dating rumors thing. But that’s a minor detail now that Chris Brown isn’t in the picture.
Let’s be honest, J.R. could kick DiCaprio’s ass if he had too. Just saying…
Smith spent last night posting stylized pictures of Rihanna with corny-ass if-you-love-something-set-it-free-type tag-lines written all over them. Either the dude is just being generally sentimental and the fact that she’s in BOTH pictures is a coincidence, or he’s still power-tripping off that 29-point outing he had Tuesday night and moving in on Rihanna beneath DiCaprio’s nose.
Stay thirsty, my friend.
