GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson has a simple message for the recently suspended J.R. Smith -- it's time to grow up.

Woodson said Wednesday that the Knicks were "disappointed" in Smith, the NBA's reigning Sixth Man of the Year award winner, for violating the NBA's anti-drug program. The violation triggered a five-game ban for Smith.

Woodson said Smith "has got to grow up and do the right things."

QUESTION: Do you agree with Woodson? Or do you think he should just let J.R. be J.R.?
