JR Smith was named NBA Sixth Man of the Year, to no ones surprise.
The 8-year pro played in 80 games and averaged 18 PPG off the bench this past regular season for the New York Knicks.
The Knicks (2nd seed in the East) have not won a playoff series since ’99-00, so this award gives their already favored team an extra boost...
We joke around about JR Smith a lot, because he provides us with a lot of material to work with, but he had a better season than I thought he would with the Knicks.
He didn’t get into any trouble and was for the most part a team player. The Knicks wouldn’t be in the position they are in now without him.
He is still JR, so there will be times that he drives Knicks fans crazy with...
New York Knicks’ J.R. Smith accepted his 2012-13 Sixth Man of the Year award Monday afternoon in New York. Smith beat out Clippers’ Jamal Crawford as the NBA’s best player in a reserve role.

In what many expect to be a big award winning season for the Knicks, the first award came rolling in today in the form of Sixth Man of the Year for J.R. Smith. Smith is the third Knick in franchise to win the award, joining John Starks (1996-1997) and Anthony Mason (1994-1995). Smith beat out another former Knick, Clippers guard Jamal Crawford, who finished second...
J.R. Smith played in 80 games for the New York Knicks this year and never started once. No matter who was injured, Smith came off the bench.
Before the season started, Smith told coach Mike Woodson that he should be starting, but Woodson stood firm.
The decision paid off.
Today J.R. Smith is being rewarded for accepting his role as a non-starter, winning the KIA Sixth...
J.R. Smith of the New York Knicks will be honored as the NBA's sixth man of the year instead of the Clippers' Jamal Crawford, according to a number of reports citing league sources.
Early in the season, it was apparent that the Clippers' high-scoring acquisition was the front-runner for the award as he helped the team vault to the top of the NBA standings and eventually...
J.R. Smith wasted no time to open the 2013 NBA Playoffs. He came in off the bench to hit 3-of-3 from the field, including this monster dunk over Boston's Jeff Green.
New York Knicks JR Smith won Sixth Man of the Year for 2013. Smith received 72 of 121 first-place votes, 484 points. Jamal Crawford (31 1st-place votes) finishes second with 352 points. JR went into this season with a mindset that he wanted to start. But Knicks head coach Mike Woodson had other plans:
“I just felt the best for this team was J.R. coming off the bench. … He...
Well I guess this officially marks the beginning of the 2013 NBA Playoffs.

The NBA post season is underway and we have already witnessed our first amazing dunk in the first game. “Sixth Man of the Year” candidate, JR Smith came off the bench in the first half to score 11 points in 10 minutes during the first half. One of those baskets was this dunk where JR bangs on Celtics Jeff Green.
When JR goes inside, the Knicks are hard to beat. JR ended the...

Down by a score of 53-49 at the end of the first half, and defense a concern, the Knicks came out in the second half and gave up a total of 25 points, including just 8 in the 4th quarter. It was the lowest point total in a second half ever in the much storied Celtics playoff history, and the Knicks went on to win game 1 of the series by a final score of 85-78. It wasn’t pretty...
