J.R. Smith a blonde, but not for long

J.R. Smith got a lofty new contract this offseason, and apparently he’s celebrating in the most unusual of ways.

The reigning NBA Sixth Man of the Year channeled his inner Vanilla Ice and bleached his hair blonde. Think it’s a joke? See the evidence here:

While the Eminem circa 1998 look is totally working for Smith, there’s one person who isn’t such a big fan. He happens to be his coach, Mike Woodson.

According to ESPN New York, Woodson instructed Smith to give his hair a more traditional look, and Smith’s dad said J.R. is complying.
