The corny pep talk was just a blip of what I surmised. The video was posted as a major slam on J.R. Smith. Although Meloclimatic was hamming up the situation it was J.R. who was a grillion times more a dope as he kept playing with a teammate on the floor. He actually almost stepped on Melo which would have been terrible. What a king clown
Yeah I too, recall all the "JR.Swish" call-outs in the longest win streak since Patrick Ewing during the end of the season .. Win Streaks like that is like finally getting that ***** u been waiting years to get "ur High on life" its all good in the neighborhood. While JR & Melo was doing all the scoring .. Prigioni/Shump/Copeland/K-Mart/and Kidd's hustle defense won game after game after game in the win streak...
Not to many Knicks Fans wanted to resign JRsmith in the offseason .. especially after the postseason games.
When we selected THJ in the draft .. there was no need for JR on the Knicks.
This forum has shrunken since last year or at least the people commenting....its seemed more people then not wanted JR back and were afraid we would lose him because he would be offered at least 6-7 million a year....people were scared of who would score if JR was not with us.........u are correct
This is such irrational thinking. Like if you take so and so off the team then we score that much less in games….it's like come on. Is the same said about Tyson missing games? Like who is going to defend the basket or who is gonna catch the lobs in the half court? Who is going to flex their puny muscles at the crowd after dunking?
Smith is on the negative side of zero sum, maybe the worst in the NBA and when you're trying to change the culture of a basketball team, you don't take on head cases such as Smith.
Knicks wanna trade Smith?
I'm actually upset that JR Smith is playing good...I just wanted him totally negated so Shumpert and Hardaway can be our SG platoons. I guess the more JR plays good the better his trade value is.
Beat me to it. This mofo just extended his life support.
I think its great JR is playing good. Win, win...Looks better for trade value, or maybe he doesn't want to leave the greatest city in the world, and will get his **** together and play his ass off again
Yah unfortunately JR just doesn't have the willpower to and mental toughness to stay focused and consistent. It's his 10th year in the league if he was going to mature it would have happened by now. It's a shame too because he's an incredibly dynamic player...what a waste of talent
