J.R. Smith cuts back on nightlifePosted by Inside Hoops
Apparently, the party’s over for New York Knicks shooting guard J.R. Smith.
Smith is off to one of the best starts of his nine-year NBA career and on Thursday he cited a cutback in nightlife as one of the key reasons for his success.
“I’m not going to lie. The New York City nightlife pretty much got to me. I was going out pretty much every other night and not focused on the task at hand,” a candid Smith told reporters in San Antonio after the Knicks’ morning shootaround.
Smith said that a new, disciplined approach to practice has helped his performance for the 5-0 Knicks.
