Intensity Thy Name Is Not J.R. Smith

They Don't Pay J.R. Smith To Pay Attention

Denver's J.R. Smith apparently just didn't have his head in the game last night against Sacramento.  Or maybe he was simply distracted thinking about his next tattoo.  Either way, Smith failed to notice that Tyreke Evans' shot didn't go in (and barely brushed the net).  Instead, Smith grabbed the ball, stepped out of bounds, and proceeded to inbound to a teammate before officials blew the whistle.  Kudos on the intensity J.R.!

Well hey, at least he's not T-Mac right? Isn't that where we are supposed to be focusing our NBA rage right now?

Still he can't touch Jim 'I Ran The Wrong Way Is that Why I'm Not in the Hall of Fame?" Marshall, but that was funny.

The price of fame and fortune..... It would be *%$#@# if every mistake and blunder we made in the workplace was exploited for public consumption - Just a thought.

Actually, I thought the same thing, but let's think about this...every other player on both teams thought he simply rebounded an errant shot and, since Sacramento wasn't pressing, they turned to go play D and the Nuggets turned move the ball down court.  You'll note no one from Denver immediately turned to look for an inbound pass...

Chauncy Billups was waiting for the inbounds pass.

In his defense, every other single player on the court acted as if it went in. I don't why, but they did.

to be fair, sacremento did start backing off right away and his team started working their way down court...which could have made him think that, i mean it's not that abnormal but there wasn't a great deal of pressure on him to make him think he just got a rebound.

 I think the NBA may need to perform a "random" drug test on JR after that one...

What is wrong with this guy? First he doesn't pay attention to a Chauncey Billups pass and now this?

Sh1t happens... love J.R.. & I'm sure he feels dumb enough as it is.. or maybe not, he has a huge Yankee logo tatted on the front of his neck so nothing Smitty does surprises me. At least he didn't try calling a timeout without a time out in a HUGE game a la C-Webb lol.

Wow, that's Where Amazing Happens.

You can't even blame that on the time difference!
