8. Don't Party With Rihanna (Until You Win the Superbowl)

This rule probably applies more to rappers and R&B singers than athletes, but hey, she's the music industry's Helen of Troy. Back in May, when the Knicks struggled against the Indiana Pacers, Smith allegedly partied with Rihanna, which some attributed to his lackluster performance. To make things even more interesting, Rihanna went on to belittle Smith (and the Knicks), claiming he was "thirsty." The Knicks would go on to be eliminated by the Pacers, and Smith (in classic Knicks fashion) gets re-signed. Hey, if the Knicks are looking for a tired small forward with a penchant for crazy love interests, maybe consider signing Rick Fox (see slide 5).
