Craig Carton. The new king of speculative statements.
JR took to Twitter to defend himself.
I never want to entertain this topic but whoever said i am or was racist to @JLin7 because he was Asian is wrong on so many levels!
I went to the #ESPYS to support him when all of Lin-sanity was going on stood up for him when other players knocked him down.
Adding (Hey, Carton...)
Don't ever in your life try an play me as racist. For someone who grew up where I did I know a little thing about it an it's never ok!— JR Smith (@TheRealJRSmith) October 19, 2016
*Update - Carton responded by bringing Carmelo Anthony into discussions.
