*UPDATE: In the original post I mistakenly identified Josh Howard as Josh Smith. I apologize to Smith.
Josh Howard – our favorite pot smoking player – is making headlines again, for all the wrong reasons. In the above YouTube video (scroll to the 1:40 mark), Smith says he doesn’t celebrate the national anthem. Here’s the exact quote:
“‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ is going on. I don’t celebrate this [expletive]. I’m black.”
We know your black, Josh. But I’m not sure why that’s an explanation for your comment. For the record, Smith makes millions of dollars playing a game in this crappy country.
For those wondering, Paul Pierce was the Celtics star who surprised some high school kids at Modell’s in Cambridge yesterday.
