Smith’s hijinks occurred during a free-throw attempt by Dirk Nowitski, when he was subbed in with 2:08 left in the first half and promptly bent over to yank on the laces of Shawn Marion.
The 28-year-old insisted all was good despite an Instagram post earlier this week that was either a knock at the Knicks or a case of really bad timing. “I don’t have no problems with anybody,” Smith said.
Knicks guard J.R. Smith is either upset with his team or just enjoys posting memes on social media. Maybe a little of both.
This group of players has run its course, as has the Carmelo Anthony era. The trade for Melo was a failure. The idea of building around him hasn’t worked. It’s time to accept it, cut losses and move on.
The Toronto Raptors beat New York for the second straight night, topping the short-handed Knicks 115-100 on Saturday.
Kevin Durant scored 29 points, Russell Westbrook had a triple-double by the middle of the third quarter and the Oklahoma City Thunder rolled to a 123-94 victory over the Knicks, who played without Carmelo Anthony.
Carmelo Anthony scored 30 points, but the Knicks fell to the Grizzlies 95-87 at Madison Square Garden on Saturday.
To say the Knicks’ guards have been bad this year would be an understatement. To call them the worst collection of guards in the NBA would be accurate. It’s that horrid.
I hate to say it, but the Knicks are a laughingstock to fans, media and other NBA executives. And it starts at the top with owner James Dolan and trickles down to the players.
I actually walked out of MSG on Wednesday night annoyed that New York beat Chicago. Please don’t dismiss this. There’s logic behind it. I swear. Read on!
Carmelo Anthony had 20 points and 11 rebounds, and the New York Knicks snapped a seven-game home losing streak by beating the Orlando Magic 121-83 on Friday night for their first victory at Madison Square Garden since October.
Mike Woodson just had three days of practice. I hope he used them well. It might very well be the last days he will have as head coach of the Knicks to turn this thing around. But he needs help from his players.
I want to introduce Mike Woodson to someone. His name is George Costanza. He once devised a theory that would do Mike Woodson a lot of good today: do the opposite.
This team isn’t close to winning anything, so bringing back its core player for more money is counterintuitive. He has the most value and the Knicks can get the most for him in a trade.
Woodson has said things in his post game press conferences this year that are either illogical, lies, or downright false.
