New York Knicks guard and former Sixth Man of the Year JR Smith really doesn’t mind that his new boss Phil Jackson compares him to the mercurial rebounding legend Dennis Rodman.
“Last time I checked Dennis Rodman’s got what three, four rings?” Smith said Tuesday about the Worm, who actually won five NBA titles with the Pistons and Jackson’s Bulls during his career. “I’m not offended by that. It’s an honor. He’s a Hall of Famer. And to be put in the same words as a Hall of Famer is something special. So I’m not offended at all.”
