The latest in the saga that is JR Smith’s life was him threatening Pistons G Brandon Jennings on Twitter. Subsequently he was fined by the NBA, but this kind of behavior isn’t anything new from JR. CBS Sports is reporting that even Knicks Coach Mike Woodson has reached a ceiling.
Mike Woodson was “not happy” with J.R. Smith for his tweets directed at Pistons guard Brandon Jennings, and he said that if Smith keeps putting himself in these positions, “eventually no team is going to want to deal with you.”
“I was not happy about that and that’s why we had a behind-the-door meeting with he and Chris [on Thursday] because it’s ridiculous,” Woodson said during his weekly radio interview on ESPN New York Friday. “There’s got to come a time where you stop putting yourself in that position. It’s going to come a time when you keep doing it, eventually no team is going to want to deal with you. You got to learn from it. Those are the things where I’m trying to get this young man to.”
The problem with JR Smith is neverending. Smith is an ultimate green light both on and off the court. He doesn’t show any pause in his actions, or remorse for that matter. Smith is now 28 and has played nine seasons in the NBA. His behavior isn’t because he’s too young to know better. It’s simply because he’s lasted this long doing the same things, so there really is no reason for him to make any changes now.
