HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — J.R. Smith‘s 2011-12 season began in China and will end wherever the New York Knicks’ season ends now that he’s agreed to join the traveling show that they have become the past two weeks with Jeremy Lin running the show.
Smith will be reunited with his former Denver Nuggets teammate Carmelo Anthony, who is expected back in the lineup before the end of the weekend.
Smith has agreed to terms with the Knicks, TNT’s David Aldridge confirmed it this morning, after having serious discussions with the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Knicks are on a roll right now, winners of seven straight, and yet there is all this worry about what Anthony’s return might do to their chemistry. I’m not worried about Anthony. But the addition Smith could be an intriguing one. He’s flourished off the bench before during his career and could provide the same sort of explosive ability for the Knicks. But if things don’t go as planned, Smith has been known to cause a headache or two with his play, where does this thing go?
