JR Smith Suffers Hamstring Injury During Game 2 of Pacers vs. Cavaliers

Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard J.R. Smith suffered a hamstring injury in Monday’s game against the Indiana Pacers

Per Allie Clifton of Fox Sports Ohio, he was unable to return for the second half of Game 2.

Smith missed nearly three months after he underwent surgery to repair a fractured thumb on his right (shooting) hand in December, but he returned to the floor March 9 following the extended absence.

He finished the 2016-17 season averaging 8.6 points per game, his lowest since his second year in the league. His 34.6 percent shooting from the field was also disappointing.

After leaving early in the second game against the Pacers, Smith now has just nine total points in two playoff games this year. Still, his shooting ability and playoff experience remain valuable for Cleveland in the postseason.

If there’s a sliver of good news for the Cavs, it’s that they’re accustomed to playing without Smith following his midseason stint on the shelf. 

For now, expect Iman Shumpert and Kyle Korver to eat up the bulk of the minutes at shooting guard with Smith banged up. Deron Williams could also see some time at the 2 if head coach Tyronn Lue wants to roll with a backcourt featuring multiple on-ball playmakers beside LeBron James. 

Cop Stone Island, Presidents, and TS(S) On the Low at M5’s Sample Sale

Visit the original post to see all 16 images from this gallery.

M5 is one of New York City’s most elite showrooms, where brands like Stone Island, TS(S), Barena, Herno, and Presidents are housed before buyers from all over the U.S. place their orders to stock the wares on offer on their shelves. Recently, M5 decided to use the time between seasons to transform its top-floor showroom into a private shopping experience, lending the expertise of their stylish staff (and really well-lit space) to a unique retail concept.

Tomorrow through Saturday, M5 is hosting a sample sale featuring many of the covetable brands they represent. Of course, you can expect to find plenty of Stoney, but other goods from brands like TS(S) and Presidents shouldn’t be slept on. From unstructured coats and suits by Barena to upscale military-inspired gear from Presidents, there’s definitely plenty on offer for even the most discerning sample shopper. And being a sample sale and all—everything is priced very reasonably.

In addition, M5 is offering up pieces from the revamped Band of Outsiders Los Angeles collection, which was actually cancelled before it hit the market. Designed by Niklaus Hodel, Matthias Weber and Florian Feder, this supposed comeback of the brand veered more towards an upscale street fashion sensibility instead of the super-slim, neo-prep vibes originally put forth by BOO founder Scott Sternberg.

Pieces on offer include oversized oxford shirts, leaf print coordinates, and plenty of sporty track pants—including an update of the tearaway pants made famous by ’90s basketball players. Considering the collection isn’t making it into any stores, this is your one chance to own a piece of obscure fashion history.

Some of our favorite finds, which can be viewed in the gallery above, include cozy knits and next-level technical outerwear from Stone Island, classic menswear with a Japanese twist from TS(S) (we especially dig the reversible camo fleece top), moleskin cargos from Presidents, and heavy-duty bags and pouches from Briefing.

Happy hunting.

Texas Rapper RENEGADE Unleashes His Single “Money Mitch”

As a young man, girl-crazy artist Rosewood Renegade watched his brother rap and noticed that music brought the attention of the ladies. Eager to garner some of that attention for himself, the rapper tried his hand at music himself only to discover that he had a real knack for wordplay. What started as a ploy for female attention is now a movement, and with the help of manager Phil Jackson, the artist is ready to set the world ablaze with his witty lyricism and passion. His newest single, “Money Mitch,” is bound to make its way to the top of charts everywhere and into the eager ears of fans.

Renegade draws inspiration from everywhere – from old to new, from Jay Z to Garth Brooks, the artist doesn’t even like to be called a rapper, anxious to make music no matter the genre. “I’m an artist, he explains, “You can’t put me in a box. You can put me on a song with anyone, and I’ll deliver.” And deliver is exactly what Renegade has done with his newest single, “Money Mitch,” which was released on March 10th. The song is derived from a sample of the movie “Paid in Full.” The song, which Renegade ran with and created musical mastery, is about “taking nothing and turning it into something.” This is what Renegade prides himself on being able to do, and the song is a debut to the world. A symbol of his entrance into a community of musical genius. The song also chronicles the artist’s desire to take those he loves with him on the road to success. “The whole goal for me is for my family,” confesses Renegade, “It’s to better everyone’s situation. And when I say family – I mean more than blood. If I grew up with you and we have a bond, we’re family.”
