Knicks guardÂ JR SmithÂ was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Saturday “for posting inappropriate pictures on his Twitter account,” according to the league.
Smith, the explosive yet controversial guard, said late Friday night that he regrets posting a photo of a semi-nude woman. He also had a feeling that he would be reprimanded by the league.
When asked if the NBA had spoken to him, Smith said on Friday: “No, not yet. I’m sure they will. I haven’t heard from anybody yet.”
Smith posted the picture of the model, Tahiry, on his Twitter page, @TheRealJRSmith, that showed her exposed from behind.
“I mean, I didn’t know it was going to be as big a deal as it is now,” Smith said. “I definitely regret it. I take away from our team. Anytime I do anything that takes away from our team I’m definitely going to regret it.”
Smith, who was signed three weeks ago, was unavailable for comment on Saturday.
