Even though the big wigs at the NBA’s main offices would prefer the Nets and Knicks simmer down their boiling feud, things only seem to get more intense by the day.
Monday J.R. Smith fired a salvo when he guaranteed that the Knicks would win the NBA title next season.
“I’m 100% sure.”
Nets forward Reggie Evans got wind of J.R. Smith’s guarantee, and took to Twitter to laugh at such a proclamation.
The Knicks and Nets play Dec. 5, Jan. 20, April 2 and April 15.
