I’m going to digress from the ‘pot calling the kettle black’ lecture, and simply will assume that J.R. Smith is not pleased with his New York Knicks teammates.
According to the New York Post, Smith ripped his teammates, and questioned their heart after a blowout home loss to the Golden State Warriors on Friday night.
“We’re not playing like [we will turn it around], that’s for sure, ’’ Smith said. “It’s not a mental thing. It’s a heart thing. We’re letting people score 50 points in the paint over and over again. We ain’t going to win games like that.
“Guys getting open, hitting shots, running around, high-fiving, laughing, joking. You’re not going to win. I’m not into knocking somebody down and hurting somebody, but we got to do something. We got to stick up for ourselves. We’re letting teams do what they want to.
“It’s about testing people’s heart.”
Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 52 points.
