J.R. Smith has made a name for himself with various off-the-court moments throughout his career. He has plenty of gaffes, of course, but many of them have become quite memorable and are now forever part of NBA folklore.
One example is when Smith infamously showed up to Game 4 of the 2015 NBA Finals on a customized PhunkeeDuck, the same hoverboard he would later sadly roll out on after the after the Cavaliers lost to the Warriors in Game 6. Perhaps because of Smith’s love for his PhunkeeDuck, the Cavaliers actually banned players from using hoverboards last season. But it seems like now Smith has a found a replacement for his beloved PhunkeeDuck — an electric mini-bike called the Scoot-E-Bike:
A Scoot-E-Bike is basically a portable moped. According to the company’s website, the bike is foldable and weighs 56 pounds. The Scoot-E-Bike is not cheap though, costing $1,599. As Mashable points out, it may not even be safer than hoverboards, which often spontaneously combust into flames.
Despite the safety concerns, Smith had a great time tooling around on Scoot-E-Bike at his 10th annual charity golf classic:
Now we can only hope that next season Smith shows up to a game on his Scoot-E-Bike, making perhaps a grander entrance than he did before Game 4 of the 2015 Finals.
