1051 VIDEO: Ben Lyons 1 on 1 With J.R. SmithEntertainment journalist Ben Lyons visited the Knicks summer league in Las Vegas this past week where he interviewed J.R. Smith 1-on-1:

 What are you most looking forward to in the upcoming season?

I’m looking forward to winning. It’s been a long time since the Garden’s seen a winning team and hopefully we go out there and put up a lot of W’s.  

Tell me what it’s like to be on that Garden floor:

It’s unbelievable. For me, it’s just like playing at home. I’m right across the street in Jersey, so all of my friends and family get to come out. The fans are great, so there’s nothing like playing at the Garden by far. 

Who are the best golfers in the NBA?

Ray Allen is extremely good from what I hear, talking to Doc, Jason Kidd is supposed to be really good- hopefully he can help me out with my swing.

The Daily Take: How Jeremy Lin “Slammed” the New York Knicks

NBA owners really have to grow up.  Between Cleveland, Orlando, and New York, we have a consortium of owners who just don’t “get it.”  I am completely baffled at all times by old white guys who really think they’ve bought inanimate toys.  They sit around on their carpet and like marbles or pogs (yeah, I just said pogs . . . get ya Slammer game right), they watch them fight...
