Video: JR Smith Breaks Three Pairs of Ankles

Including a Steph Marbury sighting!

Despite being stuck in China, JR Smith is making the best of his time by demoralizing defenders with vicious crossovers. Last night in Beijing, Smith made three of his opponents (including Starbury) look like they were on ice skates. Check the video above to see JR in all his splendor. Also, shout out to Steph for the 45/12/10 effort—we see you.

    How’s he doing with his triple doubles?

  • Mariano

    From what I’ve seen on Twitter, Chinese fans hate JR

  • Huami

    Starbury had 45/12/10? Wow. Thats amazing, its not like he was playing amateurs. Its the freaking chinese professional league.

  • AD

    he missed all of em lol

  • Jer dawg

    Lol! Okay, JR. That’s cool!

  • Da-Meat-Hook

    Same move every time,too. Impressive.

  • mike

    starbury getting dropped reminded me of him breaking yao

    It’s good to see Starbury still doing what he loves and managing his money well.

  • D12FSU

    He missed every shot! and got swatted on that second one!!!!!

    Bad defense, great moves by jr. I see you stephon!

  • b. angus

    nice n all but if they aint drop, then they aint count…p.s. starbury gave u that one cuz a triple dubb is nice enuff


    J.R. Looks older than Marbury now.

  • tomtom

    Can’t stand this dude, overrated, big ego and a big fish in a small pond. Still nice moves. Good to see Steph tho! Legendary.

    Love seeing Stephs stat line. He really got a raw deal in NY. As for Smith, and I usually try to just enjoy the highlight, buthe missed all 3 shots, including getting the second one sent into the crowd. Not that impressive.

    Umma use a Steph quote from those NBA Street series ankle breaker dvds. “Anybody can handle the rock. The question is, can you put it in the hole?” JR answered with a loud and clear no.

    Sniper alert.

  • mike d

    lol @ the 2nd one getting sent back to the stands

  • http://www.twitter.com/gerardhimself Gerard Himself

    man that first one looked painful. That guy got hurt, yikes

  • http://slamonline house

    bad d, slight very subtle push off on at least two of them, very nice!

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Very nice moves. Just to be a hater, though, notice that he didn’t make any one of those shots after faking his man out. Lol.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    lol @ Chukaz.

  • Sean

    That Chinese Pro League is about the same standard as D2/D3 NCAA….seriously low standard league..

    Million dollar moves, 2 dollar finishes!

  • Kobester

    Explosive moves but weak finishes…..And looks like Steph has been adjusting fine in China, didn’t know he’s still in CBL.

  • ace-one

    Ahh, if only jukes scored points. Can’t tell about the first one, but on the second he gets swatted viciously, and on the third one he bricks the trey…

  • http://www.nba.com VanCityBBall

    whats crazy is hes using the exact same move to break those ankles every time

  • ChipS

    Even though they didn’t drop, still had 39 and 9. Dude also had a 52 point 22 reb. game and had 57 against Marcus Williams. Even though Denver is doing well without him, still not as fun to watch George Karl roll his eyes back into the 4th row of the stands at every shot he takes. Rudy Fernandez is capable and all but he’s no JR Smith(coaches nightmare wise and basketball talent wise).

    Sickest stepback crossover!

  • http://anyoldthing Ugh

    Clang! Swat! Clang!
    Also, he pushed Steph plain as day.

  • Riggs

    he didnt touch steph at all actually.

  • alexrows

    sick crossovers, but how many points did he score off those? zero. a couple of missed jumpers and a shot rejected. the perfect example of style over substance. but still pretty sick ankle breakers. literally. I’ve never seen Iverson do that 3 times in a game

  • http://anyoldthing Ugh

    @Riggs – He must have slipped on the same puddle as Bryon Russell.

  • http://justinmaller.com Justin

    Thats because you were watching Iverson in the NBA mate.

  • Randy Brown

    What the hell are they cleaning courts with in China?
