What do you expect from JR Smith this season?
Joe Caporoso - There is always reason for concern when it comes to the New York Knicks and injured players. I’m going to hope Smith is back to 100% at some point in the first half of the season but I’m going to assume we won’t see JR really be JR until after the All-Star break. The Knicks can probably tread water without him fully up to speed, especially if Iman Shumpert continues to grow and Tim Hardaway Jr can provide a handful of quality minutes every night. When Smith is back to himself, I’d expect similar production on both ends of the court to last year with maybe a slight dip in point per game average. The Knicks have a few more scoring options this season and their offense won’t have t...

If you recall, it was the best we’ve seen the New York Knicks play in quite some time. Carmelo Anthony had an MVP-type season, J.R.

NBC New York reports that the shirt, sold at the store on 38th...

The support behind NBA players participating in international tournaments has always been a bit spotty. NBA owners and executives are usually a little wary of their employees playing in these tournaments because there is a risk of injury that doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the organization that pays them and there's often little to zero care from the NBA team...
