J.R. Smith Promises to Work on ‘Body Language’

Smiith wasn’t suspended by the team; they apparently just asked him to work on his demeanor: “Smith sometimes forces shots and loses focus on defense. ‘I’ve got to work on some things with myself,’ Smith said after practice Tuesday. ‘Just my attitude toward the game. I’ve got to control my body language. And stay focused.’ Smith gave his first interview since his actions during Saturday’s game nearly led the Nuggets to suspend him. Smith met Monday with Karl to sort things out. ‘We got a lot of things off our chests,’ Smith said. ‘I’m just glad we’re on the same page.’ Asked if the experience of the past few days is something he will learn from, or isn’t a big deal, Smith said, ‘We’ve been through this stuff before … So it’s not really a big deal.”‘

    Don’t think that George is gonna like Smith’s last line.

    By body language does he also mean posing, mean muggin, and cussin in the air to nobody particular after he drains a three? Last I checked he had no problem there

    needs to be traded cos he’s a knucklehead, plus in a few years he’ll demand a ben gordon type of salary, ain’t worth it, plus with deshawn they’ll make a nice duo!!!
    J.R. Smith and Johan Petro plus cash considerations for Brendan Haywood and Nick Young would be incredible

    he is too big to their bench, he is to the nuggets what Manu is to the spurs… trading him for any1 else but Caron Butler and the nuggets season is done with….

    Well, at least he’s admitting that he needs to work on things. Hopefully he’ll follow-through and learn.

    why would the nuggets want acentre like brendan when they got birdman& nene..nuggets 4 nba champs

    Jimmy, Haywood would be coming off the bench to spell Nene/K-Mart along with Birdman. And even I’m getting sick of JR. I’m liking a Smith for Morrow and Turiaf trade.

    everyone wants loopsided deals.GTFOH

    d.j.: GTFOH manu STILL > jr.
    besides if u haven’t noticed, IRON afflalo is fillin in nicely and nick young, maybe not now, but in the future has all the skills and potential to be a better jr.smith, too bad, I believe, the wizards probably won’t include young, but who knows…anyway as I said that would be a sweet deal for denver
    jimmy: the nuggs are too small to guard lakers frontcourt in a halfcourt set, haywood would address that deficiency, put nene at the 4 and kenyon could come off the bench and pulverize lamaar
    so if that happens, the nuggs suddenly have a true championship squad
