You might not be able to tell by his numbers, but J.R. Smith is having arguably the best season of his career. The ultra-talented shooting guard has long been known for his wildness and unpredictability, but this year he has shown at least some discipline in helping the Knicks rise to the top of the Atlantic Division.
Smith is still capable of moments like the one that occurred Monday, though. Early in the second quarter of New York’s win over the Pistons, Smith stepped to the foul line for a pair of free throws. The first shot was nothing but net, which is usually a good thing, but in this case the ball didn’t go through the hoop first.
Announcer Mike Breen was caught off guard by the miss. The Knicks’ play-by-play man interrupted himself by saying, “Did he just throw up and airball?” Color announcer Walt Frazier tried to claim it was a “swish.” On the Knicks bench, Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler got in a good laugh, but Knicks coach Mike Woodson was not amused.
Check out Smith...

Why in the blue hell would the Knicks of all teams think other teams would be afraid of them? They aren’t the Miami Heat, no one fear the Knicks.

Last night the New York Knicks hosted the Detroit Pistons, winning the game 99-85. The interesting moment of the game came from Smith, however. Leave it to Smith to make a boring game interesting.

J.R. Smith may cause you inexplicable stress by his shot selection, but dear lord, he is good money when it comes to entertainment value like he did during the New York Knicks and Detroit Pistons game Mondat night.

Wizards John Wall’s return to the court has been understated this season, probably because the Wizards season overall has been uneventful.
