Found May 14, 2013 on Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
Warning, this is not a conversation for under the age of 18 or anyone with tender eyes. KMichelle’s discussion about her love sick “hot pocket” inspired a discussion about JR Smith’s “cockiness.” Considering the popularity of that post. I decided to do an impromptu poll. And by poll I mean I sent out a few text messages and looked back in the email archives to put together a list of “Cocky Big Jocks,” and I’m not talking ego unless you mean it in the Beyonce sense.  The guys on this list are alleged to be walking softly cause they “carry a big stick.” ::cues Rihanna’s Cockiness::   - Serge Ibaka had his own sweat pants photo circulating recently. While he is currently boo’d up with Keri Hilson, the ladies say he’s one to watch.   - New York Jets receiver Santonio Holmes had a security breach a few years ago that gave anyone who was interested, all the proof they required. If you missed that photo, you can go HERE to check it out. It’s Absolutely not safe for work or tender

Smith takes blame for Knicks

Knicks swingman J.R. Smith has not been good during the team's second-round series against the Indiana Pacers, which New York trails 3-1 after Tuesday's 93-82 loss in Indy. Of that, there is no dispute -- not even from Smith, himself. Through four games, the recently crowned sixth man of the year has averaged 13.3 points, nearly five below his season average, and the way...

J.R. Smith’s Illness Feels Like Only Part of Story for Knicks Guard as Struggles Continue

It goes without saying that J.R. Smith has not been the same player in the playoffs that he was in the regular season, when he averaged 18.1 points off the bench and earned the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award. Calling him a “no-show” lately would be generous. At least if he were a no-show, his effect on the Knicks would be neutral. Instead, he is starting to outright hurt...

Smith’s Virus May Spread To Teammates appeared first on...

JR Smith: “I Take The Blame For This Whole Series”

Even though Smith has been shooting 28% this series against the Pacers in the 2nd round playoff, the Sixth Man of The Year cant let his slumps get the best of him. From NY Daily News, speaking after their disappointing 93-82 lost to the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night, JR Smith gave every Knick fan a place to take their blame… him. “My frustration with myself is extremely high...

Knicks' J.R. Smith, Kenyon Martin miss practice with illness

Kevin Durant Says Serge Ibaka’s Shooting Problems Are ‘All In His Mind’

Serge Ibaka wouldn’t normally be the focal point of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s offensive outlook, but with Russell Westbrook out for the remainder of the playoffs, Ibaka has become a focal point. Add to the equation that in essence, the Thunder chose Ibaka over James Harden last summer, and his lack of offensive punch becomes an even bigger issue. Ibaka is struggling mightily...

Knicks’ J.R. Smith, Kenyon Martin out again with illness

For the second day in a row the New York Knicks were withoutguard J.R. Smith and forward Kenyon Martin, as both players continued to battle illness.

Caption the Photo: John Starks and JR Smith Sharing a Moment

John Starks gets a bit of a bad rap, without him the Knicks wouldn’t have been as good during the 1993-94 season and he was a tough of a player that there ever was, but his playoff failures that year are similar to JR Smith on a much grander scale. The 1993-94 season was Starks best as a pro, he averaged 19 points and 6 assists a game. In the playoffs though , all his numbers were...

Serge Ibaka’s Poor Shooting Has Not Leaked Into Other Areas of His Game, Yet

In trying to defend his teammate, Kevin Durant might actually have made things sound worse for Serge Ibaka. Just when his team needs him most, Ibaka has disappeared offensively. His primary role is not as a scorer, of course, but the growing reliability of his mid-range jump shot and his abilities as a finisher created hope that he may be able to step up when Russell Westbrook suffered...

Tayshaun Prince Dunks on Serge Ibaka, Almost Breaks His Neck in Process (Video)

Tayshaun Prince does not do a whole lot of dunking anymore. At 33 years young, Prince’s high-flying days are mostly behind him. The Kentucky product has not completely lost the ability to get up and throw one down on occasion, though. In the third quarter of Wednesday’s Game 5 in Oklahoma City, where the Thunder were making a last-gasp attempt to stay alive in their Western Conference...

TOK Game Recap – Knicks Season Just About Over

The New York Knicks season was pushed to the brink tonight with another lackluster effort against the Indiana Pacers, as they fell 93-82. Eleven points doesn’t do justice to how one sided this game felt. The Knicks went down immediately and were never really in the game. We’ve seen this movie before. Outside of the 4th quarter in the Game 2, the Knicks have been thoroughly out...
