JR Smith Benche And Blur

Benche by coach without having received an explanation, JR Smith does not know if he will remain at New York Knicks, or even in the NBA.

Sale period for JR Smith. After receiving a fine of $ 50,000 for his dual history of laces behind the New York Knicks was benche coach Mike Woodson by her during his team’s success on the Miami Heat . Especially, while Woodson or the front office could serve him in advance that he would not play that game, he was not warned that he would play not:

“I think this is the weirdest part in this,” says the player . “I could understand if they had told me, but there was no discussion about it. But it is like that. We won. ”

The media had no more explanation than JR Smith. Mike Woodson would not comment on the reasons that led him to his back bencher and not talk to him. Even before the meeting, he did not really seem to want to talk about Smith:

  “For the good of our team, I do JR Smith not I will not do more talking. ”

In any case, it all seems to go in the direction of the rumors that want the Knicks want to get rid of JR Smith . The player now does not know what his future will be made:

“Honestly, I do not even know at this point. At one point, I was certain (to stay in New York), and now everything has changed. But it is like that. This is the nature of business. ”

His second attempt to undo the laces and fined $ 50,000 ensuing therefore questioned the future completely JR Smith. Or at least they are the straw that broke the camel’s back:

“I am not at all happy just because he was warned, he came back and he made the same mistake, and it’s not good,” explained Mike Woodson on ESPN radio before he decided not to discuss the subject publicly. “It must stop. I do not stop to say whenever something happens, but it should stop. ”

JR Smith, he is fine and everything else disproportionate. Prompted to have defeated the laces Shawn Marion, he seemed to be trying to undo those Greg Monroe in the next game. A simple joke he says:

“It was a joke, but a joke that went wrong. “

Which went very wrong because, as crazy as it sounds, it calls into question his future now as a player the Knicks, but also NBA player: if the Knicks want to get rid of JR Smith (they can not do until January 15 because they are above the salary cap and Smith has signed more than 120% of his previous contract), the leaders of other teams obviously did not want to get stuck with a player that connects more problems that successful shots (32.3% this year)
