J.R. Smith, in his thus far brief tenure with the Knicks since joining the club after his infamous stint in China, has been a bit of a disappointment, averaging 8.4 points and shooting just 36.7 percent from the field in 11 games. And despite spending parts of five heavily tatted and moderately successful seasons in Denver with Smith, Carmelo Anthony perhaps saw all of this coming...
