J.R. Smith attends the game between the Miami Heat and New York Knicks on January 27, 2019 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York.
The former New York Knicks and Cleveland Cavaliers star is captured kicking the man multiple times on the ground, before unleashing a haymaker on the person he claims smashed his vehicle window. When the other guy finally makes it up to his feet, J.R. delivered one final punch to the face.
"Broke my s--", Smith explained.
TMZ reports the melee took place "around the Fairfax area - near the famous Flight Club sneaker shop, which had just been looted". The man proceeds to scurry away. "One of these little motherf***ing white boys didn't know where he was going and broke my f***ing window in my truck".
