J.R. Smith

  1. Knicks Ronnie Brewer out six weeks after knee surgery

    Sep 7, 2012, 2:59 PM EST

    Ronnie Brewer, Ron Garretson

    Well, this is not the ideal way to start the season in New York. The Knicks had planned to give Ronnie Brewer a lot of run to start the season as Iman Shumpert recovers from knee surgery, then Howard Beck of the New York Times tweeted this on Friday: Knicks G Ronnie Brewer will be…

  2. J.R. Smith, Tyreke Evans put on a show at playground game

    Sep 3, 2012, 8:41 AM EST

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith attempts to dunk the ball in their NBA basketball game against the Portland Trail Blazers in New York

    Dyckman Park in New York City is one of those places where on a few warm summer nights there is some crazy run going on. Streetball at it’s best. Which means a screaming announcer, some spectacular shots and everyone looking for their shot. You’re going to find about as much defense as you will fans…

  3. Picture of the Day: Marbury with his statue in Beijing

    Aug 29, 2012, 3:29 PM EST

    Marbury statue

    Remember early last year, when Knicks fans were worried about when J.R. Smith could get out of his China contract and help the Knicks in the NBA playoffs, but everyone had to wait for his team to be eliminated from the playoffs? Well, Stephon Marbury and his Beijing Ducks were never eliminated — they won…

  4. Video: Top 5 plays from Drew League championship game

    Screen-shot-2012-08-14-at-4.43.54-PM

    Last season was the summer of the Pro-Am leagues like the Drew League — with the NBA locked out the stars flocked to play there and so did our eyes. This summer our eyes have been back at the Vegas Summer League and London. But the Drew League was still going on in Los Angeles…

  5. J.R. Smith sounds like blog commenter, says Knicks are contenders

    Aug 6, 2012, 12:21 PM EST

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the first half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    There are some very thoughtful, basketball smart Knicks fans out there. As a whole they know the game. And then there are the Knicks fans who vastly overestimate how good their team really is and think the franchise is still thought of like it’s 1972. Apparently, J.R. Smith falls in the later group. The Knicks…

  6. The Heat are looking at Andray Blatche, but it’s not serious

    Aug 6, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Andray Blatche

    It is very much the “dating but not in a relationship” kind of deal. There have been reports that Andray Blatche was on the Heat’s radar. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that the Heat are looking at him, but it’s far from a done deal, especially because of Blatche’s market value: ..just because, as ESPN…

  7. The Birdman would play for veteran minimum… in New York?

    Tattoo artists of New York, don’t get your hopes up too high yet, but a big new canvas could be coming to town… if you can find some space on it. But like we said, don’t get your hopes up yet. We’re a long way from knowing how this story ends. Chris Andersen — the…

  8. Harden says he was not crossed-over against Nigeria. You decide.

    Aug 3, 2012, 4:33 PM EST

    Olympics Day 6 - Basketball

    During the often otherwise almost unwatchable Team USA demolition of Nigeria on Thursday, this happened: James Harden got crossed. Broken ankles. Call it whatever you want. Except Harden wouldn’t call it that at all. Trey Kirby of The Basketball Jones monitors players twitter accounts (so you don’t have to) and he found this exchange between…

  10. Mike D’Antoni says he would have “walked to Phoenix” to bring Steve Nash to New York

    Jul 28, 2012, 6:34 PM EST

    Mike D'Antoni Steve Nash

    The Knicks had dreams of Steve Nash this summer before the Lakers swooped in and took over to land Nash in their sign-and-trade. Nash eventually made his decision based on the proximity to his kids, so there may have been nothing for the Knicks to do. But you have to imagine that having Mike D’Antoni…

  11. Ronnie Brewer reaches deal to join New York Knicks

    Jul 24, 2012, 12:27 PM EST

    Ronnie Brewer, Ron Garretson

    Iman Shupert and his quality wing defense will be out the first couple months of the season as he recovers from knee surgery (and maybe longer as it takes a while to get up to speed). In his place, the Knicks are bringing in Ronnie Brewer, the two sides have reached a one-year deal according…

  12. The Inbounds: The Knick problem isn’t Lin, it’s consistency

    Jul 18, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    So Jeremy Lin is  a Rocket, no longer a Knick. That actually happened. The Knicks elected not to match the three-year, $25.1 million offer sheet from the Houston Rockets and for Knicks fans who loved Lin, this is awful, terrible, gut-wrenching stuff. For everyone else, it’s a lot of fun. Why? Because it makes for…

  13. J.R. Smith suggests Lin contract would not go over well in Knicks locker room

    Jul 15, 2012, 8:18 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v New York Knicks

    There’s a real question now whether the Knicks will match the Jeremy Lin offer sheet from Houston, a three-year, $25 million offer. They have until Tuesday to decide. On one hand there is the fact Lin is not worth that much, he’s really not worth the $14.2 million he makes the third year of the…

  14. NBA Summer League’s second day features plethora of solid performances

    Jul 15, 2012, 12:26 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Memphis Grizzlies

    LAS VEGAS — The second day of NBA Summer League featured pretty the same things as the first — random cameos in the crowd by established NBA like Baron Davis, J.R. Smith and David Lee; a lot of less than stellar basketball interspersed with jaw-dropping highlights and 32 quarters of players most of the crowd…

  15. Knicks sign-and-trade for Raymond Felton, is Jeremy Lin on the way out?

    Jul 14, 2012, 11:53 PM EST

    New York Knicks' Lin pumps his fist from the bench as teammates score during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Things went from “easy and predictable” to completely insane Saturday night in Gotham. It had been a few days since things with the Knicks had seemed berserk, so of course, all that detonated as news broke that the Knicks’ point guard situation could be altered dramatically in a matter of hours. Here’s a rundown of…

  16. J.R. Smith says he’d go back and play in China… really?

    Jul 14, 2012, 7:27 PM EST

    CBA 11/12 First Round: Guangdong Hongyuan v Zhejiang Chouzhou

    LAS VEGAS — J.R. Smith’s time playing in China during the lockout was… eventful. We’ll be kind and call it eventful. There were millions dollars in fines, him suing his team, family members fighting with fans and an early end to the entire experiment. He said he didn’t learn any of the language. So, sure,…

  17. Welcome to NBA signing day tracker: Griffin, Nash, more ink deals

    Jul 11, 2012, 9:05 PM EST

    Blake Griffin arrives for a news conference announcing the players selected for the 2012 U.S. Olympic men's basketball team in Las Vegas

    It’s official, Steve Nash is a Los Angeles Laker. And Blake Griffin is a very rich Clipper. All the deals that have been reported in the past 10 days — such as Deron Williams re-signing with the Nets — go from “agreement reached” to “pen on paper” today. The league has a 10-day moratorium on…

    Jul 10, 2012, 2:06 AM EST

    Knicks' Smith shoots during their win over the Heat in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in New York

    That’s it. I’m calling it. Creative Artists Agency is run by aliens. That’s the only conclusion I have as the behemoth representation agency that counts among its clients LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and several members of both the Knicks’ roster and management office has announced that J.R. Smith will return to the Knicks,…

  20. Report: J.R. Smith will opt out, but plans to remain a Knick

    Jun 25, 2012, 7:07 PM EST

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith attempts to dunk the ball in their NBA basketball game against the Portland Trail Blazers in New York

    This fits in perfectly with the story line — J.R. Smith never wanted to leave the Knicks, but he wanted to get paid as much as he could So it leads to this, as tweeted by Howard Beck of the New York Times: JR Smith will decline Knicks option but intends to re-sign for longer…

  21. Report: Knicks target Ray Allen, Jason Terry, shooters

    Jun 25, 2012, 8:45 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    Apparently, the Knicks want some shooters to put around their roster. And they hope they can convince a good one to come to New York on the cheap. While they wait to see if J.R. Smith stays or if he ops for free agency, they will target shooters in the upcoming free agency period, according…

  22. Report: Tony Parker needed eye surgery, Olympics still likely

    Jun 24, 2012, 3:12 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    This might help you understand why Tony Parker was frustrated enough to file a $20 million lawsuit. He had to have surgery or he could have lost an eye injured as a bystander in a TMZ dream fight in a club in New York, and in a couple weeks he’s flying back to the United…

    Jun 21, 2012, 9:02 AM EST

    CBA 11/12 First Round: Guangdong Hongyuan v Zhejiang Chouzhou

    J.R. Smith’s time in China during the NBA lockout did not exactly go smoothly. There was the knee injury where he and the team disputed severity and treatment, there were the missed practices that he disputes, there was a pretty severe culture clash, and there was his sister getting into multiple fights with fans in…

    Jun 15, 2012, 2:54 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    So Tony Parker was just sitting there minding his own business in a hot New York bar with his hot new girlfriend — as superstar NBA players are wont to do — when the perfect storm of a TMZ story broke out. Rapper Drake and R&B singer Chris Brown got in a fight reportedly over…

    Jun 7, 2012, 3:12 PM EST

    Knicks' Smith shoots during their win over the Heat in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in New York

    J.R. Smith has a $2.5 million option with the Knicks, and at that price New York could use his firepower off the bench (erratic though it may be). The question for him is simply this: How much can he make elsewhere? He is a New Jersey native and loves NYC, but like the rest of…
