Suspended for the season's first seven games, Denver Nuggets guard J.R. Smith returned Tuesday with a new outlook and a different name.

Smith said there are "a lot of personal reasons" that "I can't really explain at this time" for the switch. He went with J.R. because he was often called "Junior," but now he's going back to his given name as part of an effort to fix an image that's taken some hits over the years because of a poor driving record that resulted in the suspension.

Smith says he plans to phase in his new -- or given -- name over the next few weeks, although the Nuggets plan to keep calling him J.R. On Tuesday, Smith was expected to come off the bench against the Chicago Bulls in his first appearance after a tumultuous offseason.

UPDATE: Well, so much for that expirement. Smith has already made the move back to being J.R. Seriously. "There was too much controversy with the switch," Smith told The Denver Post after Denver's 90-89 win in Chicago. "I got a lot of calls and text messages and e-mails. It wasn't a good move."

"Earl Smith III for three... it's good!"
Sounds really weird.
It sounds like some white guy in contrast to a black person who's been jailed.
