J.R. Smith Likes “Coming off the Bench” by Derrel “Jazz” Johnson

I had the opportunity to speak with New York Knicks shooting guard J.R. Smith on Wednesday after the team played under new head coach Mike Woodson after Mike D’Antoni’s departure. Among the things I learned was the sense of pride Smith has in coming off the bench. “I like coming off the bench. We have a great core of guys coming off the bench. Coming off the bench you are in a real unique postion because we know what are starters are going to do.” See more of what J.R. Smith had to say in the video below.

    Interesting interview, Derrell. It’s always interesting to hear a good player say that they enjoy coming off te bench. You never know if they truly mean it or not.
