J.R. Smith: I'm Better Now Because I Can't Really Party In Cleveland

J.R. Smith has been pretty good since joining the Cleveland Cavaliers, scoring 14 points per game and shooting 37 percent from behind the arc. While playing for the Knicks during the first chunk of the season, Smith was scoring just 10 points per game and shooting 35 percent from behind the arc. According to J.R.… » 1/28/15 12:36pm 1/28/15 12:36pm

J.R. Smith's Debut As A Cavalier Was Only Fun For J.R. Smith

J.R. Smith shared his mindset before his first game with the Cavaliers Wednesday night: "When in doubt, shoot the ball." He missed all five of his shots in 18 minutes as Cleveland lost to the Rockets, 105-93. » 1/08/15 12:26pm 1/08/15 12:26pm

How In The Ever-Lovin' Hell Can The Knicks Be So Much Bullshit?

Oh yes, this is the good stuff. This is the pure Colombian. This is the braindead, dogshit, dick-in-the-wall-socket-type Knicks experience that's been missing for the last, uh—fuck it, the last couple months, at least. Welcome back, assholes. » 1/06/15 10:59am 1/06/15 10:59am

J.R. Smith Ends Game With A Very J.R. Smith Shot

The Knicks lost 97-95 to the Orlando Magic last night, and this here was the final play of the game. I'm not going to assume that this isn't the play Derek Fisher drew up, but Carmelo Anthony's frantic calling for the ball would seem to indicate that J.R. pulling up from three was not exactly what the coach had in… » 11/13/14 12:40pm 11/13/14 12:40pm

Taylor Swift And Amar'e Stoudemire Are Buddies(?)

Pop star and New York institution Taylor Swift, who moved to New York in April, is a big fan of the New York Knicks. She is a fan despite the fact that the Knicks are a garbage-ass basketball team, but as Swift told Time.com, her love of them is not entirely without merit: » 11/13/14 9:58am 11/13/14 9:58am

The Hapless Knicks Get Their Own "One Shining Moment" Montage

The New York Knicks were officially eliminated from the playoffs Saturday, as the Atlanta Hawks clinched the eighth seed with a win over the Heat. But don't you want to relive the delightful journey that was the Knicks' 2013-14 season, set to "One Shining Moment"? I sure do! Let's do that. » 4/13/14 11:35am 4/13/14 11:35am

J.R. Smith Says He'll Give The Pipe To Whomever He Chooses

J.R. Smith dropped a public service announcement to his followers tonight: He won't put up with dudes who are angry because their girls follow him on Twitter. Stop blowing up his spot. » 4/03/14 10:55pm 4/03/14 10:55pm

J.R. Smith Pulls Down Vince Carter's Headband

J.R. Smith is back to his fucking-with-people's-accessories ways. Here we see J.R. pulling down Vince Carter's headband, likely trying to get it around his eyes so he can't see. Fortunately for Vince, he was the Greg Monroe of J.R.'s headband game, not Shawn Marion. » 2/24/14 9:49pm 2/24/14 9:49pm

J.R. Smith Torches Anthony Bennett For Nasty Dunk

Here we have J.R. Smith turning Cavs rookie Anthony Bennett from player to spectator. First, he blows by Bennett with a pretty gnarly crossover and then continues on to the rim where he finishes it off with a windmill dunk. Clean, quick and decisive. All in all, it's a pretty nifty little bit of hustle-bustle. » 1/30/14 8:46pm 1/30/14 8:46pm

Here's Every Shot Carmelo Anthony Made In His 62-Point Night

Carmelo Anthony had the highest scoring game ever at Madison Square Garden last night and surpassed Bernard King's 60 for the franchise record of points scored in a game. Once Melo passed King (and Kobe Bryant's MSG record of 61 points) he was removed with over seven minutes remaining because the Knicks were… » 1/25/14 10:08am 1/25/14 10:08am

J.R. Smith Plays Air Guitar While Enjoying A Very Chill Tune

At some point during last night's 76ers-Knicks game, J.R. Smith helped a young girl get through her cover of a popular Lumineers song. This is incontrovertible proof that despite the fact that the Lumineers make vapid, insufferably folksy music that appeals to the lowest common denominator of human emotion, they have… » 1/23/14 12:13pm 1/23/14 12:13pm

Carmelo Anthony Could Really Use A Day Off

We get it, Carmelo. None of us likes having to think about going to work in the morning, and that 29-16 you slapped on the Suns must have required a lot of energy. » 1/14/14 10:15am 1/14/14 10:15am

You Know Who Also Untied His Opponent's Shoes? Larry Bird

So it turns out that J.R. Smith isn't the only basketball player to have untied an opponent's shoes during free throws. A couple decades ago, another trash-talking, non-urban volume shooter pulled the same stunt, and somehow managed not to get written up by a professional sportswriter as a cross between Curly Neal and… » 1/13/14 4:47pm 1/13/14 4:47pm

Photo Evidence That J.R. Smith Continues To Give No Fucks

At this point, untying people's shoes is more of a J.R. Smith signature move than a fall-away, 23-foot jumper. Your thoughts, Adrian Wojnarowski? » 1/10/14 2:30pm 1/10/14 2:30pm

Everybody Now Hates J.R. Smith

Yes, the ongoing J.R. Smith miniseries is funny. The fines, the suspensions, the tweets, the missed shots, the contract, the drama. But with his latest shoelace-related fine and accompanying benching, something of a boiling point appears to have been reached—media has turned hostile and the Knicks would love to see… » 1/10/14 9:24am 1/10/14 9:24am

J.R. Smith Fails To Untie Greg Monroe's Shoe

Two days ago, J.R. Smith untied Shawn Marion's shoe during a free throw. J.R.! Tonight, against the Pistons, he tried to do it to Greg Monroe, but wasn't successful. Hopefully, this happens at least once every game for the rest of the Knicks' season to keep things mildly interesting. » 1/07/14 8:31pm 1/07/14 8:31pm
