Seriously, It looks like a ride Batman would roll in.

Smith just loves to be in the spotlight it seems. First it was his reported fling with pop star Rihanna. Then his outlandish hair colors caught the ire of his coach. Now he rolls along in a vehicle more suited for army troops and SWAT units. For real, it is grenade proof and was featured in "The Fast and the Furious" franchise.
It has been reported that Smith bought the armored military truck for nearly $450,000. From Kelly Dwyer of Ball Don’t Lie via New York Post's Page Six via SB Nation.
“Smith, who’s recovering after surgery on his left knee in the off-season, rolled up to Meatpacking District restaurant Catch on Thursday night in a Gurkha F5, which is made by Toronto-based Terradyne Armored Vehicles and used by police and the military. Smith parked the oversize truck, worth about $450,000, on the street while he dined inside.”
It’s just another case of J.R. being J.R. He could do what he wants to do with his money—it’s his right. As long as he is rehabbing his knee (he had offseason surgery on his left knee for a lateral meniscus tear) and doing all the conditioning he needs to do to get back on the court in a timely manner, that’s what really matters.
In any event, no one will confuse Smith for trying to keep a low profile. What was perhaps a worse offense this past week was Tyson Chandler being photographed with Justin Bieber.
Can Mike Woodson discipline Chandler for such a horrendous lapse in judgment?
