Mike Woodson really isn’t feeling JR Smith right now, and I can’t blame him.
Woodson has vouched for Smith numerous times since Smith joined the Knicks, but has grown tired of his on and off court antics. After benching Smith again on Tuesday night Woodson initially said he didn’t want to talk about JR.
Woodson was on ESPN NY 98.7 Wednesday, and wouldn’t get into why he continues to bench JR Smith. He did say that wearing an NBA uniform is a privilege, and JR has to be more professional.
on ESPN NY 98.7, Woodson won't say why JR was benched but says it's a "privilege" 2 wear NBA uniform, reiterates JR needs to be professional
