Knicks shooting guard J.R. Smith is somewhat of a mystery man, and Monday night he put on a show for the Madison Square Garden crowd that only he could deliver (well, JaVale McGee probably could too, but that goes without saying). J.R. started with a display of incompetence, airballing a first half free throw, much to the delight of everyone. And, as is the case with most of these incidents, the camera focused on the Knicks bench, where even notoriously poor free thrower Tyson Chandler could be seen clapping with glee.
For his next performance, J.R. attempted to join a bunch of kids for a halftime scrimmage. The kids were having none of it, and for reasons Knicks play-by-play announcer Mike Breen explained best.
