New York Knicks star J.R. Smith was arrested in South Beach last night ... after cops discovered the 26-year-old was a wanted man.

According to reports, Smith was pulled over on a routine traffic stop ... when the officers noticed an active warrant out for Smith's arrest stemming from his failure to address a ticket for driving without a valid license.

Smith was booked into Miami-Dade County jail shortly before midnight. He was released a short time later on bond.

Calls to J.R.'s agent have not been returned.

Another million dollar dummy. One of the easiest things you can do is renew you drivers license.

Good ol' TMZ commenters. Dude got arrested for failing to respond to a ticket, but you talk about him as if he robbed a convenience store

Ok, here comes the onslaught of comments accusing the cop of "racial profiling", and then the usual rebuttals.... Thanks TMZ, for stirring the racial pot for us today....

Guys, we forget that many of the knuckleheads are immature. They are essentially developmentally delayed. This particular idiot is functioning at a 17yo level. He has the money to have hired an attorney to get the stupid traffic ticket situation fixed, I mean squared away but he's stupid and cheap. He thinks-as a 17y - you call attorney's AFTER you're busted [like now]. It's ridiculous, don't know if he knows who is biological father is - but hoping against hope that his father is levelheaded, he would have advised him what to do to avoid this mess, because he ding-bat "friends" wouldn't have a clue, since they're on the same page.
Pathetic.

I don't understand this story. It says "NBA Star" & then goes on to say he plays for the Knicks. Which is it?
