NBA Player Fined $25,000 for Posting Inappropriate Picture of Woman

JR Smith of the New York Knicks has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for posting an “inappropriate picture” on his Twitter account. The picture in question was of a woman’s bare ass lying on Smith’s bed. The woman that appeared in the picture is Tahiry, AKA Joe Budden’s ex-girlfriend.

While I’m not going to dive into the gossip talk about Smith, Budden, and Tahiry, I will say it’s kind of a low move by Smith to post that picture. On the sports side of it, I don’t agree that Smith should have been fined for this picture. Isn’t is every citizens right to say whatever they wish? Constitutional right? What will the NBA try to filter next? I mean it’s not like Smith was at an NBA-sanctioned event when he posted this photo.

The fallout from this photo should be quite interesting, as fellow Slaughterhouse member, Royce da 5’9″, tweeted this Saturday night:
