JR Smith says he's too lazy to wake up for practice

Quote:
It appears J.R. Smith, whom the Bulls dispatched quickly to Denver after getting him in the Tyson Chandler deal, may start at shooting guard. Smith said he needs to work on getting to practice earlier. "I'm not really a morning person," he said.
From sam smith's article today.

Glad we traded him.

It also says Othella is doing amazing, i wonder if Pax is gonna do another adrian griffin 180 with him.

If O played like he did the year we won 47, I could have seen Pax keeping him again as our low post offense presence, since Sweets will likely ride the pine most of the year.

Re: JR Smith says he's too lazy to wake up for practice

Glad you traded him for nothing?

He got over 14ppg in the preseason and shot almost 40% from behind the arc. He's going to be a darn good 2-guard and the Bulls gave him away for nothing.

Re: JR Smith says he's too lazy to wake up for practice

regardless, even if it were a reporter playing around with words. if it were to be true, is it that suprising coming from J.R Smith? I think not...

No, Thomas and his guys weren't the only ones in the wrong Saturday. The Nuggets have their own issues. But when it was over, at least they weren't crying, at least they weren't punking.

It's all gone in New York now the pride, the respect, the dignity. This isn't just a bad team; this is a bad act. A once proud franchise and fan base brought to its knees as its pathetic coach makes excuses and whines for mercy.

Re: JR Smith says he's too lazy to wake up for practice

his been making an effort? go cry me a bloody river. his been in the league how many years now? his got to grow up..

his a perfect personification of what is wrong with the nba. he will be player with great talent, but never have the motivation, desire and respect for the game to be more than a player that drifts around the nba. all he does is comes into games, immediately tries to chuck a few shots, and throw down a few dunks, and gets benched again then pouts. he doesn't care about team play, doesn't care about other facets of the game besides individual play, which being only scoring.

im glad that paxson let him go, he knows his a kid that doesn't get it..

this article is about karl demanding jr be the first to practice and the last to leave. karl thinks he can be a superstar and is trying to push him as far as he can. he wants to jr to have the same determination as melo does, constantly being a gym rat.

no where does it say "jr decided to sleep through parctice again" u people are a joke :/
Well then you must be looking at a different article, no where does it say that it's about going earlier than on time or that Karl wants him to be the first one in. The part about Smith posted is the only thing Sam Smith had about him.

I watched a Nuggets preseason game and the opposing announcers were talking about this, how they talked to him and how he said that he wasn't a morning person, but it was being used an excuse for not practicing as hard as the team wanted him too. Their response was basically 'tough ****, this is the NBA, you have to work hard or you shouldn't be here'. He comes off as a spoiled little *****

No, I'm not and I wasn't at the time, but just reading this and the past stuff there's no chance he would have gotten playing time here, so what's the point. Skiles proved it just last year, with Tim Thomas who could obviously contribute, but that doesn't matter if you don't want to work or practice hard. I also no that Paxson is no moron, so seems like no one else in the league was intersted in JR Smith for nothing.

Uhh no, nothing was edited, he was talking about the Sam Smith column, where that's all that was said. You know, since this is the Bulls forum, Bulls fans and people from Chicago no what he's talking about when he says Sam Smith's column...

obviously that article has a different tone. But come on, having a problem just with getting up early? You really have to work at it? Just set a damn alarm. How many people in the real world want to slap this kid? I had to get up at 5 am just for when I was in high school. No, it's not that hard, and I wasn't getting payed millions of dollars

get to melo's status?? he shouldn't even worry about getting to melo's status, let alone cambys status or the rest of the teams status as a matter of fact. if anything i wouldn't be supirsed that karl plays the rookie as a starter Y. Diawara, which he already has been for most of the preseason.
