J.R. Smith Got Jokes on LeBron James's Hair

Hey... you can't have it all.

Published December 18, 2015

Even the King can't have it all.

Speaking about Cleveland Cavaliers teammate LeBron James to GQ, J.R. Smith said the NBA superstar has it all... except a good hairline.

"I tell him you can't have everything," Smith told the magazine about King James as part of a feature story. "I tell him all the time: You can't have it all! You have to give up one thing, and it just so happened it's your hair. If someone told me I'm gonna give you $600 million, but I'm going to take your hair? Take my hair!"


As inexplicable as Smith could be sometimes, we can't say he is off here. James already has two NBA championship rings and four MVP trophies to go along with his 11 All-Star Game appearances. His business is thriving, having signed a lifetime deal with Nike just last week.

This past summer, James vowed to send 1,100 Akron kids to college via his LeBron James Family Foundation's "I Promise Program," and personally, he, his wife and two sons welcomed their baby girl last fall.

But through it all, what's continued to be the one constant joke and trolling material online has been James's hairline.

Like J.R. said, though, you can't have everything and 'Bron isn't doing too bad.
