JR Smith’s Goal in China: Triple-Double in Every Single Game


JR Smith is setting the performance bar high during his adventure in China. Impossibly high, because that’s just what he does. Per Sheridan Hoops: “As the biggest name in team history, Smith also gets the best treatment. The team has hired a cook and two translators especially for him. For his relocation, Smith brought about 20 pieces of luggage, and the club arranged a room especially for those bags. Josh Boone, who played for the New Jersey Nets for four seasons, is another American player on the [Zhejiang Chouzhou] team. Boone said of Smith, ‘He will prove to all the people in China what he is made of. I know J.R.’s ability. He will be the greatest player in this league.’ Smith may agree with Josh Boone, although his team only ranked fifth in the CBA last season, but he hopes he can be the added piece that would earn Chouzhou a championship. ‘I know many who want to stop me, but I will let them know who I am,’ Smith said with smile. … ‘I just care about my team, I just care about winning and letting my fans enjoy. I don’t know how many points I will score, that’s not my goal. But I want to get triple-doubles, not only for one game, but for every game, every night.’ Smith never had a triple-double in the NBA, where he was not considered a willing passer. But in China, he has expressed a desire to help his team in various ways, not only to score, but in rebounding, assists, and inspiring his teammates to get better.”

    Doubt it. But good that he’s trying to set a bar for himself.

    HE IS A VERY GOOD PASSER, THAT WAS JUST NEVER HIS ROLE IN THE NBA, NUGGS NEEDED HIM TO GET BUCKETS. THAT SAID, I DONT SEE HIM PASSING ENOUGH TO GET A TRIPLE DOUBLE IN EVERY GAME. HE MIGHT GET A FEW, BUT HE KNOWS HE IS THE BEST SCORER IN ALL OF CHINA. JR WILL GET BUCKETS.

    I’d love to see him deliver on this promise, show he can be a leader, and get a second look at being a 1st or 2nd option on an NBA team.

  • http://www.optimabbc.be Max

    I doubt that.
    I do see him scoring like 40 tho.

  • fish sticks

    HAHA I bet dude never comes back. Personal chef, translators, peple bending over backwards for him and his 20 pieces of luggage.. Dude probably loves it

    His only chance, to f*ck around and get those triple doubles.

  • blackice87

    I almost thought the article was going to say Josh Boone had been hired to be J.R’s footstool.

  • Papa Smurf

    Ain’t no way he means assists. I bet he’s thinking point, boards, and steals.

    Doubt he can do it. Terrance Williams was able to average a triple double in the D-League though. On another note, why doesn’t he have this goal in the NBA? =P

  • http://@whogotjazz.twitter.com MIGZ

    Yes! that’s what’s up i want to see him light up in the NBA as well i think he still has potential to be great keep it up J

  • #6marjons

    whats the odds on him missing a triple deuce in the first game of the season?

  • Bojangles

    Last season f**ked around and averaged a triple double?

    jr sucks

  • Sherlock

    Iman Shumpert = (JR Smith 2.0)

  • fruizm

    YOU suck, mubwar!

  • Chukaz

    JR has the talent and physical tools to be the best player in the NBA. He also has the basketball IQ to be the worst player in the NBA. That leaves him somewhere in the middle. What a waste of talent

  • John Starks

    LMAO @ Chukaz

  • http://SlamOnline.com Mars

    wow @chukaz

  • robb

    Excellent analysis by Chukaz. I agree 100%. Of one thing I’m sure, JR’s gonna do some spectacular plays.

  • http://obsessioncollection.wordpress.com georgeblack

    it’s either he set the bar too high or he is looking down at CBA, expecting to get triple-double in every CBA game? not a hater here, it’s easy to say and it’s another thing when comes to actually doing it. good luck!

  • ChipS

    @MUBWAR: go the other way with that hate.

  • http://myspace.com/gametimeweezy Gametimeweezy

    @chukaz …Waste of talent is harsh bro JR Smith gets respect my dude… he goes HARD and stays within George Karls gameplan. First he plays with a superstar who gets all the love/hate what have you (Anthony and Iverson). Comes off the bench. And then when Melo gets traded for ALL THE KNICKS GOOD PLAYERS he still handled his biz on a team that went 10 deep. I agree though for all his talent he is due for a breakout season in the REAL league (not in china)

  • Galagu

    even if they count passes instead of assits for jr he still won’t get to 10.

  • http://tempdog1 Tempest

    I need to see a highlight mix of that season

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    He will fail to get that stat line in the first game…
    EVERYONE KNOWS China won’t let you play full minutes…, he will only get 20-28 mins in his first game.

  • Yang

    No way… JR can’t even do that in the NBA. No way he’ll do it in one of the world’s top league’s like China, Spain, Turkey or Greece.

  • bigmike100

    he mite as well try… j.r. not as greedy as every1 thinks he is… he gon avrg like 35 tho

  • qasclk
