I actually wouldn't mind him starting and keeping him accountable for the minutes he plays. Having him out there with the starters might make him more conscious about playing within the system and reduce the chucking.

Right now, he's constantly coming in with the Knicks behind and he thinks his role is to indiscriminately chuck the team back into the game. Have him start and he might be more likely to move the ball, concentrate on defense, and shoot when Felton gives him the ball. If he doesn't behave, pull him for Shump quickly, so he gets the message.

I agree J.R Smith would be a nice addition to the starting line up. Smith and Melo + Chandler can have some amazing moments. Hopefully Mike Woodson sees it this way.

STFU and GTFO out Heat, Lakers, Raptors follower...JR just needs to start playing team ball instead of chuck mode.

JR Smith starting, much like him taking good shots and playing defence, is simply a Pipe dream. Get over it.

Haha this board is so amazing. I was saying the same things that you guys are saying about JR when we were doing pretty good. Some people called me crazy, some of them accused me of not being a Knick fan. I am glad that we are on the same page right now.

JR Smith, Felton have 0 basketball IQ. As soon as we get rid of them and bring some players at least Tyson's basketball IQ level, we'll win something.

He might not have to leave NY, but he damn sure shouldn't be a 2nd offensive option. That is just offensive!
