  1. J.R. Smith continues Knicks pattern of late-game mistakes with ill-advised three in loss to Rockets (VIDEO)

    Jan 4, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v New York Knicks

    The Knicks had an opportunity to win their second straight game against a team that has performed much better than New York has to this point, but another bone-headed mistake in a season that’s been full of them derailed that chance. Tied with the Rockets with under a minute remaining, New York inbounded the ball…

  2. J.R. Smith fined $25,000 by league for “hostile and inappropriate language” in tweet

    Nov 15, 2013, 5:11 PM EST

    J.R. Smith

    Might call some of my Number street homies an put #Detroit on smash for a min!#DeadSerious—  JR Smith (@TheRealJRSmith) November 14, 2013 We told you that the Knicks’ J.R. Smith and the Pistons’s Brandon Jennings got into a little twitter beef when Jennings questioned whether J.R.’s brother Chris Smith deserved to be in the NBA? (He’s not the…

  3. 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…

  4. Lakers send Devin Ebanks down to D-League

    Feb 15, 2012, 6:09 PM EST

    Ebanks_Devin

    From the Lakers’ official Twitter feed: BREAKING: The Los Angeles Lakers have assigned forward Devin Ebanks to their @nbadleagueaffiliate, the Los Angeles @DFenders. This could mean nothing, but it could mean something significant for the Lakers as well: Gilbert Arenas-to-LA rumors have been swirling for about a week now, although the team has said it doesn’t have…

  5. Monday morning one liners: Coming, going from Europe

    Nov 28, 2011, 11:47 AM EST

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

    With the end of the NBA lockout, NBA players are exiting Europe and heading back to the good ol’ US of A for an NBA season. What players are on the move are the highlights of our morning one liners. If you read one thing today, make it this very thoughtful look at where the…

  6. How Stephon Marbury saved J.R. Smith’s job in China

    Nov 23, 2011, 3:10 PM EST

    marbury_china

    This is one of the most amazing stories of the entire lockout. We’ve talked about how in the wake of an injury in his first game, and how J.R. Smith left the team to seek treatment, his Chinese squad (the Zhejiang Golden Bulls) had just about enough of him. Smith has been Smith — late…

  7. J.R. Smith faces culture clash in China where team is first

    Nov 23, 2011, 9:58 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    While we Americans preach that “there is no I in team” and say we want to see teams function as a unit, we are still a nation that allows the individual a lot of freedom. We give the individual a lot freedom. The Chinese culture is much more focused on fitting into a group dynamic…

  8. J.R. Smith’s knee injury not serious (he played on Tuesday)

    Nov 22, 2011, 8:02 AM EST

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

    It looked bad. Any time you can’t walk off the court and they take you directly to the hospital it’s scary. Doing so in a foreign country — in this case China — adds to the tension. But it turns out J.R. Smith’s knee injury is not that bad. In fact, he played in the…

  9. J.R. Smith clashes with Chinese team about knee injury

    Nov 21, 2011, 1:09 PM EST

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

    It took all of one game for J.R. Smith to clash with the management of his new team. Should have seen that one coming. We still don’t know the severity of a knee injury suffered by Smith in the fourth quarter of his first game in China, but it sure didn’t look good. The disagreement…

  10. J.R. Smith suffers potentially major knee injury in China

    Nov 20, 2011, 7:55 PM EST

    Nuggets guard Smith celebrates a three-point shot in their NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Denver

    This is the nightmare scenario, for both teams and players. Nuggets swingman J.R. Smith has apparently suffered a knee injury in his first game for his Chinese team, Zhejiang. It was a non-contact injury as he cut into the lane. We do not yet know the extent of the injury (you can watch the video…

  11. Chandler, Smith could be released from China when lockout ends

    Oct 31, 2011, 10:12 AM EST

    Nuggets guard Smith celebrates a three-point shot in their NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Denver

    What the Chinese government — which is what really runs the Chinese Basketball Association — did not want was teams to rent an NBA player during the lockout. So they only allowed their teams to sign NBA free agents and no opt-out clause for when the lockout ended. But even as seemingly half the Denver…

  12. J.R. Smith learning the good, bad of playing in China

    Oct 27, 2011, 8:26 AM EST

    Nuggets guard Smith celebrates a three-point shot in their NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Denver

    The Chinese Basketball Association has an insanely high turnover rate for Western players who sign on. The basketball is different, but more so it’s the radical culture change that players struggle with, things like the food. J.R. Smith is getting some of that, but he’s adjusting. A fascinating post over at Sheridanhoops.com breaks down the…

  13. NBA players don’t realize what awaits them in China

    Sep 22, 2011, 1:17 PM EST

    marbury_china

    Hey, locked out NBA players. How would you feel about playing in a league where the players have no power, practices go on for five or six hours on off days, there are bus rides that would make a minor league baseball player wince, and forget about post-game food spreads, or even a good college…

  14. Kenyon Martin to become third Nugget to play in China

    Sep 21, 2011, 1:35 PM EST

    Kenyon Martin

    Kenyon Martin is about to join J.R. Smith and Wilson Chandler as key Denver Nuggets free agents that have decided to play a season in China rather than see how the lockout plays out. And that leaves the Nuggets screwed for next season. Martin’s agent Andy Miller confirmed to Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post…

  15. It’s official, J.R. Smith signs to play in China next season

    Sep 14, 2011, 12:18 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    What is the Chinese word for “gunner?” That word might now be J.R. Smith. The talented, athletic Denver swingman who never saw a shot he didn’t like has signed to play in China for next season, according to reports out of China via Nuibball.com as well as Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. He will be the…

  16. Frustrated J.R. Smith says he likely wont re-sign with Nuggets

    Apr 21, 2011, 5:20 PM EST

    Nuggets guard Smith celebrates a three-point shot in their NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Denver

    They are frustrated in Denver. They have not been able to solve the Oklahoma City Thunder puzzle and are now down 2-0 in their first round playoff series. J.R. Smith’s frustration boiled over Thursday, to the point he says he may choose not to re-sign with the Nuggets this summer, he told Benjamin Hochman at…

  17. Arron Afflalo expected to miss rest of week in Denver

    Mar 21, 2011, 4:14 PM EST

    Arron Afflalo, Francisco Elson

    Denver’s offense did not look right with Arron Afflalo and Raymond Felton — the team’s starting backcourt — out this weekend. Of course, playing good defensive teams in Miami and Orlando probably had a little to do with that, too. Afflalo will be out the rest of the week recovering from a hamstring tweak, George…

  18. Trade Deadline Rumor Roundup (and Morning One Liners)

    Feb 24, 2011, 11:14 AM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Orlando Magic

    There are 8 million rumors out there in the naked city, too bad half of them all won’t make it…. But we round them up for you anyway. And throw in some other stuff at the end for fun. Because we’re good like that. The trade deadline is at 6 p.m. Eastern today. The Bulls…

  19. What now for the Nuggets? Playoff push or fast trades?

    Feb 23, 2011, 9:33 AM EST

    Raymond Felton, Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov

    Congratulations Denver. Sure, having your star player and face of the franchise force his way out of town doesn’t feel like something to be congratulated over, but there is the silver lining you keep hearing about — at least you’re not Cleveland. That’s got to make you feel better, right? You got something in return…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Melo? We don’t need no stinkin’ ‘Melo?

    Feb 23, 2011, 9:09 AM EST

    Grizzlies Nuggets Basketball

    What you missed while you were getting arrested fighting over Girl Scout cookies… The Lakers beatdown of the Hawks was our game of the night. Nuggets 120, Grizzlies 107: That, my friends, is what passion can do. The Melodrama had this team playing like the walking dead for a month. There was no passion —…

  21. Carmelo Anthony is gone, who else is Denver likely to move

    Feb 22, 2011, 9:35 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Carmelo Anthony was just the first domino in Denver. His trade will be followed by host of moves in the next 48 hours — then again next summer — as virtually the entire roster gets overhauled. Denver has from a team that thought it had a chance to push the Lakers to one that is…

  22. The other Nugget everybody wants? Nene.

    Feb 17, 2011, 12:00 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Do people realize how good Nene is? He’s not just another one-named Brazilian. He averages 15 points a game but he’s shooting 63.7 percent to get them (best percentage in the league, easily). He’s strong and draws a higher percentage and-one fouls than anyone in the league save Reggie Evans. He’s good on the boards.…

  23. Bulls looking at two guard help, but chemistry trumps all

    Feb 16, 2011, 4:53 PM EST

    J.R. Smith

    The Bulls are happy with themselves just the way they are, in a Stuart Smalley kind of way — they’re good enough, they’re smart enough, and doggone it, people like them. Sure, they could use an upgrade at the two, they know that, but they are not about to make a move that could damage…

  24. Video: J.R. Smith’s vicious two-hand dunk

    Dec 17, 2010, 8:50 AM EST

    J.R. Smith

    The Spurs players end up on a lot of posters because they try to take the charge — and it won them the game last night. But rookie Gary Neal, he’s just in a poster. This was as insane and powerful a dunk as you are going to see. Just put this on a loop…

  25. J.R. Smith to Chicago? Maybe. (And what that means about Melo.)

    Dec 15, 2010, 12:43 PM EST

    Image (1) nba_smith.jpg for post 394

    The theory goes like this: If the Denver Nuggets are going to trade Carmelo Anthony, then they are going to strip the roster down and rebuild. That means Chauncey Billups is gets moved, it means J.R. Smith is out and maybe more. In the NBA you sell the fan base one of two things —…
