JR Smith Says on Paper the Knicks Are a Championship Team

The Knicks have been Paper Champions for about 40 years now.

So, thank you JR Smith for stating the obvious.

In an interview with ESPNNewYork.com this weekend, Smith said he thinks that the Knicks, on paper, have the talent to win a championship, something the franchise hasn’t done in 40 years.

“Right now with the talent we have, what it says on paper is championship all day. But it’s a matter of us going out there and doing it,” Smith said after appearing at an event in Harlem at Nike’s House of Hoops to promote/give away some Nike sneakers to children.

“It’s just a matter of us being smart with our talents and making the right plays,” Smith said.

Smart and JR Smith have never been in a steady relationship, but we will see.
