Found February 04, 2013 on Larry Brown Sports:
JR Smith’s shooting is generally considered to be a strength in his game, but it was the source of embarrassment on Monday. Smith shot 5-for-15 from the field and went 1-of-2 at the free throw line in the New York Knicks’ 99-85 win over the Detroit Pistons. A career 74.5 percent shooter from the line, Smith had 16 points which is right on his season average, but he airballed a free throw during the second quarter. Smith’s free throw actually hit nothing but the bottom of the net. The only problem is it did not go through the actual cylinder first. After his miss, Smith gazed at teammate Amar’e Stoudemire in disbelief before shrugging it off with some laughs. Tyson Chandler and Carmelo Anthony could help themselves and busted out laughing on the bench. They could afford to — the Knicks had a huge lead at that point and won the game pretty easily.

So, why exactly am I presenting you with the news that JR Smith scored 25 points...

Coyotes goalie gets haircut, now has a mullet

As you can see from the photo above on the left, he had one of the raddest hairstyles in the NHL for all of last season and into this year. Many fans will be disappointed to hear that Smith recently cut his hair — until they see his new haircut. The photo above on the right...

Smith Jr. Helps Bucks Survive Off Night In Lincoln

Nebraska is just 11-12 and 2-8 in the Big Ten conference this season. Still, if there’s one sentence that I’ve said in about every article since New Year’s, it’s that “winning on the road in the Big Ten isn’t easy”. The Buckeyes nearly fell into that trap with cold shooting and a lazy closeout as the Huskers got as close as five with just under three minutes remaining...
