J.R. Smith Says Boring Nightlife Is Responsible For Better Play

During his time spent in New York with the New York Knicks, J.R. Smith experienced more lows than highs. One high being crowned the NBA's 6th Man of The Year but since then Smith found himself sinking. 

Living in the city that never sleeps began to take a toll on his body and it showed every night on the court. Due to his efforts he found himself traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers but it seems J.R. has returned back to his old self and claim it's all due to the fact the night life in Cleveland sucks! 

"I think this is the best sitwiuation for me, ’cause there’s nothing but basketball. There’s nothing you expect but basketball. There’s nothing, there’s no going out, there’s no late nights. There’s video games, basketball and basketball. So it’s a great thing, ’cause I go back to where I came from. When I grew up, I never, I wasn’t allowed to go out. I missed my prom because I went to an AAU tournament, and all that stuff. For me, it was basketball, basketball, basketball. And then when I got in the situation where I was at an early age, it was more, alright, let me see what this life is about, as opposed to just keep going. So now, I get the chance to get back to my roots.”
