Does Carmelo Anthony have the leadership and ability to lead the New York Knicks to a title?
When it comes to ability on the hardwood, Carmelo is one of the best to ever play the game. His shooting ability is second to none. He can virtually score at will. His 28.7 points per game was tops in the NBA last season, winning Carmelo his first ever scoring title. Anthony’s leadership skills leave something to be desired. He shoots so much, that opponents key on him and this is when he needs to create plays for his teammates. That is what a great or even a good leader would do. Carmelo is not the leader that the Knicks need to get them a title. He is a piece of their puzzle, just not the key piece to the championship puzzle.

J.R. Smith and his younger brother, Chris Smith, have nailed the whole brotherly love thing down pat, and have done so in the form of J.R.’s face on his brother’s back. Chris took to his IOnstagram account to show off the new ink and it was accompanied by a nice birthday message for his older brother which read:
“Happy Birthday to my big Brother @teamswish always got my back...
Don’t worry, you’re not missing something here. Chris Smith might be, though.

Brotherly love: Chris Smith, the younger brother of Knicks’ J.R. Smith shared an image of his brother’s portrait tattooed on his back Sunday night. Smith accompanied the photo with a birthday message for his big bro, who turns 28 on September 9.

I am the type of person, if I know what you meant, even if you have a typo or use it in the wrong context, I won’t make a big deal about it.
I know what JR Smith was trying to say. He meant to say celebrate the memories of those who died during 9/11. His heart was in the right place, he brain is just somewhere else at times.
Cut him a little slack, he isn’t the sharpest knife...
