Reggie Evans LOLs at J.R. Smith’s championship guarantee

The Nets’ Paul Pierce and Knicks’ Raymond Felton went at it in defense of their teams, and even the NBA saw Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov and Knicks owners James Dolan were on the same track. J.R. Smith also said the Nets weren’t good.

There might have been more sniping between the two sides at some point this summer, but honestly, the bluster has been too great to track comprehensively.

Add one more small diss to the pile.

In response to a tweet linking our post on Smith’s NBA title guarantee, Nets forward Reggie Evans tweeted “LOL” (hat tip: ESPN New York).

I wonder whether Evans clicked through to the post, which also contained Smith’s line about the Nets. A refresher of the report by Marc Berman of the New York Post:

Smith was then asked why he joined the Knicks over the Nets when he came back from China in February 2012.

“The Nets weren’t good,’’ Smith said. “Now they’re still not good.’’

I’d like to hear Evans’ response to that. Really, unless someone is going to elevate this offseason talk above mild jabs, I just want to see these teams on the court.

The Knicks and Nets play Dec. 5, Jan. 20, April 2 and April 15.

They’ll also likely meet in the Eastern Conference Finals as the Knicks head toward their first championship since 1973. LOL.

    At The End Of The Season Knicks Fans Will Be Boasting About
    All The Teams They Beat During The Regular Season,
    & Just Like Last Season They Will All Disappear When The Knicks Have
    An Early Exit In The Playoffs.

      Absolutely nothing you just said has any truth to it. All i ever see anymore is NBA players ranting about us and our team and it’s all just ignorance.l You have clue, NONE, whatsoever

      He might not be able to predict the future, but this is pretty much what happened last year….

        And the year before last.

    One of the Knicks leaders (never mind they don’t have one) I mean Mike Woodson needs to talk with Smith. I like that he’s confident, but last time I checked you we’re awful during playoffs – awful.

    Looks like this is developing rather quickly into a nice in-town rivalry

    I hate defending the Knicks in even a partial way, but apparently JR’s guarantee was made to a kid at a camp who asked him if the Knicks were going to win the championship; a reporter was there and ran with it.

      Typical 21st century reporting. Take whatever you can out of context and go wild.

    Backhanded reality slap down.

    NEITHER of these embarrassing failures for big market franchises have won a damn thing in nearly 40 years.

    See the NY Jets (LOL), NY Rangers (Have won 1 championship in 70+ years) and Mets (No one cares about 1986 when the Yankees have nearly a quarter of the entire MLB championships) for other prime examples of loser franchises in big markets.

    Talk is cheap. Play the game. – NY Giants

    It’s called selling tickets in advance, and it works!!!!!!!!!

    If the Knicks even get to the finals it will be a huge achievement. Same for the Nets.
