Every Wednesday at Turn On The Knicks our staff will debate an issue of the week surrounding the team here in Roundtable Format. Make sure to give everybody a follow on Twitter, along with follow the site right here. Let us know if you agree/disagree.
What are your thoughts on the New York Knicks performance in the NBA summer league?
Joe Caporoso - My biggest take away is that I feel more comfortable with the Knicks selection of Tim Hardway Jr and decision to guarantee part of CJ Leslie’s contract. THJ looks how a first round pick should look in the summer league and is going to have a bigger than expected role early in the season because of JR Smith’s injury. He has the athleticism to be a factor on the wing and while he won’t provide the scoring JR Smith does, he has the look of a competent rotation player for the 2013-2014 season. Leslie is a little further away but is going to make the team’s final roster. He is too raw at this point to expect regular rotation minutes in his ro...

Less than a week after his four-year, $24.7 million dollar extension became official, the Knicks announced J.R. Smith would miss up to four months due to surgery to repair the meniscus and patellar tendon in his right knee. The Knicks said Smith's injuries, which were treated at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City by team orthopedist Dr. Answorth Allen, were...

This news is shocking and unbelievable...
I don’t think you can ever say J.R Smith isn’t smart…well you can but this isn’t one of those times. The Sixth Man of the Year made sure he got paid before announcing that he was set to get surgery. Smith has had patellar tendon surgery and an arthroscopy for a tear in the lateral meniscus in his left knee. The Knicks said that Smith’s injuries were chronic and have been...
The revelation about J.R. Smith's knee surgery on Monday had a lot of people wondering where the shooting guard's school of thought was.
The New York Knicks' Sixth Man of the Year reportedly knew he needed surgery in May, had it done in July, needs four months of rehab and the season begins in October.
Do the math the next time, J.R.
Now another little tid-bit...
JR Smith will need 3-4 months to recover from knee surgery, and he may not be ready at the start of training camp, the New York Knicks announced on Monday. Smith re-signed with the Knicks on a four-year, $24.7 million deal earlier this month. He had patella tendon surgery and an arthroscopic procedure for a [...]
The revelation that J. R. Smith had knee surgery Monday — just four days after signing a rich, new four-year contract — made the Knicks’ investment look instantly suspect and possibly ill-advised. But the surgery was not a surprise to team officials. And the investment was not as extensive as first believed.
Smith’s deal covers a maximum of three years, with a total value...
Do all of the shenanigans caused by J.R. Smith’s knee sound eerily familiar to you? Dare I badmouth Allan Houston, one of the most beloved and revered New York Knicks of the 21st century? It certainly isn’t his fault that management offered him and his bad knees six years and a $100 million. Let’s just chalk it up as yet another Knicks blunder.
I love Houston (not Dwight...
I don’t know if I could date a girl who openly said she would do anything to sleep with JR Smith, but the heart wants, what the heart wants I suppose.
Indiana Pacers Lance Stephenson has been seen around town booed up with the Love and Hip-Hop star.
Good luck with that.
Shane Larkin, pictured above in the middle – with his damn name on his jersey….not really sure why I don’t think you can read – has undergone surgery on his broken ankle. His recovery time is expected to be about 3 months. Meanwhile, JR Smith’s surgery to repair his torn meniscus will set him back 3-4 months himself. Both COULD be ready for the start of the season. And...
He'll Fit In
10) On a team with Amar'e Stoud- amire, Andrea Bargnani, JR Smith and Carmelo Anthony, his chances of looking like the Defensive Player of the Year are going to skyrocket
9) He's from the area, and it's always a good idea for crazy people to have more day to day contact with their relatives
8) He's only 23 more teams away from having a jersey from...
Some links from around the World Wide Web late on this Monday evening:
• As expected, the Knicks agreed to terms on a two-year deal with Metta World Peace this afternoon. The Clippers were another rumored NBA destination, as well as the tease by World Peace that he would play in China. In the end, the Knicks were able to add the former Ron Artest and native New Yorker to the roster...
