I appreciate his honesty and frankly that was smart on his part.

It was bumb for the Knicks to pay him, but I am not going to hold that against JR, his job is to get as much money as he possibly can, if they are offering.

J.R. Smith┬ásays he delayed having surgery on his knee until after he signed his contract with the Knicks because it “made more sense for my family.”

“For one, I’m a father and I have two young children to look after,” Smith said Monday. “It made more sense for my family to get a deal done before (surgery).”

We will see if he lives up to the contract, doesn’t matter if he does or not because NBA contracts are guaranteed. ┬áThere is no timetable of when JR will return, but whenever he does he will have to serve a five game suspension for failing a drug test during the summer.
