Happy birthday J.R. Smith, here are some highlights (VIDEO)

Sep 9, 2013, 3:37 PM EDT

J.R. Smith is a fearless gunner, with all the good and bad that comes with that. Last season for the Knicks that was what they needed, another scoring option outside Carmelo Anthony, and Smith provided them one to the tune of a career best 18.1 points a game.

Smith turns 28 today. We’re celebrating his birthday with highlights.

Smith attacks and doesn’t fear a contested shot, which makes him a lot of fun to watch. He knows how to score. It helped earn him a new three-year, $18 million contract with the Knicks this summer.  Of course, then he got knee surgery, basically drove a tank around New York, then followed it up by getting suspended for the first five games of the season. But a few more late-game highlights and Knicks fans will look right past all that.

Here are some highlights from last season. Happy Birthday, J.R., enjoy it.

    JR Smith never met a shot he didn’t like.

    You trying to get the pipe?

    Hey JR…You want to be the knick fan favorite? Win a title? Get your head right man. And not with weed. You’d better play your butt off this season or you’ll be remembered as another almost winner. Real winners, Jordan,Bird, Magic etc. always played hard and never wanted to lose. Never took a night off. You blew up in the playoffs and we lost to Indy. Now a five game suspension. Grow man! This is New York.
