It hasn’t been J.R. Smith’s week. He was ejected from the game against the Pacers on Wednesday. The next day a provocative text with a high school girl leaked online, and now reports suggest him getting testy with Knicks assistant coach, Herb Williams.
According to the NY Post:
Smith also had an incident with the Knicks’ mild-mannered assistant coach, Herb Williams. In the first half, Williams and Smith exchanged angry words on the bench during a timeout. After the game, Williams’ anger seemed to carry over.
As Smith talked to a media scrum, Williams walked over and ordered Smith to take his headphones off while he was addressing reporters. Smith’s headphones were draped around his head. Smith took them off and Williams shook his head in disgust as he walked away.
