J.R. Smith’s Drug Habit Lands Him 5-Game Suspension From NBA
Positive drug tests to NBA players are like paper cuts to newspaper boys.
J.R. Smith is no stranger to the NBA’s doghouse as the New York Knicks‘ shooting guard had been suspended by the league three times prior to Friday. Well, just for good measure Smith decided to bump his suspension number to four in just seven years, yet this time it’s a five-game ban for violating the NBA’s substance abuse policy.
Apparently, the reigning Sixth Man of the Year has tested positive for marijuana three times in the last year alone! If you’re keeping score at home that is 1.6 games per positive drug test for Smith. It’s an absolute joke for NBA commissioner David Stern to sit atop his high horse and not punish players, who have time and time again brought shame to the game of basketball.
It’s strange to think that Smith averaged 18.1 points per game in 2013 all while being under the influence of drugs. How good would this guy be if he actually played the game with a level head? At this stage in his career, Smith is a walking underachiever and everyone in the Knicks’ front office deserves to be fired after this team gave J.R. a three-year deal worth $18 million this offseason.
