The hits just keep on coming for JR Smith. Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski wrote an incredibly brutal article about the recently benched, former 6th man of the year. Some excerpts from the write up;
Perhaps his greatest excess of idiocy had been a weekend of running a room service bill into the proximity of $3,000, a source with direct knowledge told Yahoo Sports. He kept ordering food, stacking piles of trays upon trays – “just to see if they would keep bringing it to the room,” the source said. All uneaten, all on the franchise’s tab – all a window into a fool.
He can make it sound so sincere, but the con never ends. J.R. Smith was raised in a suburban, middle-class home with two good parents and access to an excellent education. He had a tremendous high school coaching mentor – Dan Hurley at St. Benedict’s Prep in Newark, N.J. – and he has long been taught the difference of right and wrong. Smith’s always loved to play the part of a tough city kid, but truth be told, he’s a soft, spoiled suburban jump-shooter.
J.R. Smith is 28-years old, and it is too late to threaten and punish a spoiled, suburban kid. No trade, no epiphanies, no changes. The Knicks deserve J.R. Smith, and he’ll belong to them until the bitter end.
Well, damn! Tell 'em why you made Woj'! JR Smith just got aired out by an old white man, and it's the honest truth. Smith acted like a baby after last night's benching, saying he had no clue he was going to be benched. Maybe swallow your pride for once JR and say you deserved to be benched and will work on getting back in the line up.
