JR Smith Says Partying Less Has Improved His Play

JR Smith is 27 years old, you should have had this figured out by now. If you are partying before and after every game, your focus might not always be on the court.

Better late than never I suppose, here is what JR had to say to Marc Berman of the New York Post courtesy of Pro Basketball Talk.

“My thing is, being professional 24hours a day – 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” Smith said at the shootaround this morning. “I can’t let myself slip as well as my teammates slip. In order for me to hold them accountable, I have to hold myself accountable. I go out here and there. I definitely have to choose my spots. Definitely not before games. I’ve been smart about it.’’

Being smart about it means like an alcoholic he has went from regular beer to lite beer.  He hasn’t cut the clubbing completely out, but baby steps.

If he can continue to shoot close to 50% from the field it will only make the now 5-0 Knicks that more dangerous.
