J.R. Smith’s yearbook quote is better than your yearbook quote. In fact, it’s better than anything you may have ever written, spoken or thought of.

Terez Owens brings us an image that, while not surprising, is utterly fascinating. It’s the alleged yearbook image and quotation from one Mr. Earl J. Smith Jr.

I will give you a moment to bask in the glow of the image as if it were the first rays of summer sunlight, warming hearts frozen by winter.

The quote, as best we can see, is “Get chicks or die trying,” although it gets cut off at “try.” I think we know enough of the Knicks star to extrapolate the rest.

There really couldn’t be a better time to unearth such a slice of literary history. Smith is coming off a tremendous Game 2 against the Celtics Tuesday night, scoring 19 points and dropping this first-quarter buzzer beater.
