From his couch JR Smith watched his team lose to Boston on Sunday as the Celtics avoided being swept by the Knicks in the first round of the NBA playoffs. And although he was suspended for an elbow to Jason Terry’s chin, that didn’t stop him from throwing more blows through the media today when asked what would’ve happened if he were playing. Via ESPN
“Oh yeah, it would’ve been over,” Smith said after Tuesday’s practice. “I’d have been playing golf today.”
When asked about Jason Terry, Smith responded just like one would expect him to…
Asked about Terry on Tuesday, Smith said, “Who? I don’t even know who that is.”
Wednesday should be a good game as Smith has just given the Celtics, and the trash talk king of Honey Nut Cheerios Kevin Garnett a little bit of billboard material. I love a good verbal joust, but it probably would’ve served himself and his team better if J.R. would’ve kept that definitive comment to himself, but when you’re high school year book quote is “Get chicks or die trying” you can’t expect much of a filter.
