JR Smith Bought A Tank

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — A news report yesterday came out alleging that Knicks G JR Smith pulled up to a restaurant in Manhattan driving a $450,000 Gurkha F5.

What is a Gurkha? The Gurkha is made by Terradyne, a Canadian company, and it’s basically a tank on wheels. If you’re a movie fan, you may remember the vehicle (I hesitate to call it a car) from the film Fast Five, where it was driven by The Rock (I hesitate to call him Dwayne Johnson)…

So, weighs 10 tons, has armor-plated body…seems like a fun car to drive, even if it’s probably horribly unpractical. All that said, I didn’t want to write about this yesterday because we weren’t certain it was true. Yes, driving an armored tank around Manhattan seemed like something JR Smith might do, but it was just one report.

Then, last night on twitter, a fan asked JR why he bought the Gurkha, and he confirmed the purchase…
