JR Smith has alleged that the management of NBA, informed him that they will be fining him in every game if he doesn’t cover up the Supreme Tattoo on his leg.
JR Smith also accused the management of the professional basketball league, of not asking other basketball players to cover Jordan logos, NIKE checks or anything else. He wrote on Instagram;
I swear I’m the only person they do shit like this to! So you mean to tell me i have to cover up my tattoo for what? You don’t make people cover up Jordan logos NIKE checks or anything else but because it’s me it’s a problem all of a sudden!!! Shit whack
However Athletic’s Shams Charania disclosed on Saturday, that JR Smith intends to discuss the matter with the league office. The Basketball player has been a leading Supreme supporters in the NBA, having worn an arm sleeve during a game.
For the 33-year-old Cav, the decision to wear the Supreme sleeve came down to nothing more than a simple fashion statement.
“I thought it looked dope and matched our uniforms,” Smith told Cleveland’s Joe Vardon in December.
The league has however not caught the Supreme bug. Washington Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jr. broke out a Supreme leg sleeve a few days before Smith wore his sleeve; in that instance, the league made Oubre get rid of the sleeve at halftime.
