We all know J.R. had a roller-coaster ride while playing in China. From complaining the lack of internet usage to complaining about the food, Smith does not have to worry about that anymore. The newly acquired New York Knick made an instant impact in a Sunday matinée with the Dallas Mavericks. We all know Smith can provide a huge impact off of the bench. At times Smith can be an enigma, but you have no choice but to recognize the talent. When Smith gets hot there is nothing you can do to guard him, but at the same time he is also capable of playing like a chicken with his head cut off. The Knicks seem to be on the right path with the heady point guard play of Linsanity, but we all know how that “Run and Gun” teams doesn’t fair well when it comes to the postseason.
I am happy to see J.R. out of China, and at a place where he can succeed. I know that the people in China are probably just as happy that he is out of their hair. Despite all of the drama with so-called fake injuries, family members fighting, and all of the other madness, Smith put up insane numbers. I am looking forward to see how the rest of season shapes up with the offensive fire power that the Knicks possess. Welcome Back J.R. I hope you provide us basketball fans with some highlights for the rest of the season.
