honestly, i think handing out j.r. significant money is a foolish decision. he's just not that great. at this point he might opt in to his knicks' contract because i'm not sure other teams will think it worth their money to give him bigger deals. i really don't like him, though. maybe i would if the knicks had a coach who didn't tolerate his isolation plays and forced him to stick to pick and roll.

if there was a way for us to snag OJ Mayo...

JR's a good guy, and he plays hard all the time but the dude is too much of a chuck, and is too dumb...

unfortunately we have no alternatives...

JR Smith will not pick up his option, and Knicks have no way to pay him anyway. So he probably won't be here. i appreciate his talent, but he can be frustrating to watch sometimes.

JR Smith is such a chucker, his poor shot selection just helps the Heat.

I can live with JR as long as he plays defense. The dumb fouls make me want to rip my hair out, but elite teams could always use young, versatile athletic defenders.

And his jumpshot next year can't possibly be worse than what it has been this year. This season just seems like a fluke to me.

is it a given that he won't pick up his contract?

I suppose that he probably will opt out, and he assumed coming into this season that he will opt out, but he might have played himself out of it. he's not a guy worth giving the MLE to at this point in his career, IMO. he just doesn't have the maturity to be a winner. at this point, I think there is a slight chance he's back next year.

The heat are a bad team for Novak to play against. They close out on the perimeter probably quicker than any other team in the league.

Novak is what he is, a 3 point bomber and not a lot else. I'm still happy to have him on the team.

Thibs actually runs play to get Korver open.
Same with Rivers who runs screen play to get Allen open.

Novak is useless because woodson is content on him being useless.
Novak can't run, if he tried to run through screens his defender would get to where he wanted to go first despite the screens.

Novak is being exposed a bit, which is good, since it gives a chance of Knicks keep him.

Mike Bibby gets to be open a lot, why? Heat don't care about him, unlike Novak that is getting a lot of attention from the Heat.

also, these type of shooters are bad match-ups against miami because of their athleticism on the wing. peja went from murdering the lakers to being more or less useless against the heat.

Otis Smith calls your bluff

I think Knicks can offer Novak around $1.4 million next year. So I would just offer Novak a 5 year deal, with that starting salary and max raises. If Novak wants stability, he'll be almost guarantted to be here for 5 years. Knicks would do that give Novak that offer in a heartbeat..............If he becomes useless in year 2, who cares?

JR Smith has an obligation to leave...an obligation to me.





The Knicks have options but maybe too many...

When team's can play Novak that tight and bring that much pressure on him you kind of have to figure it's because Melo was averaging 31% shooting the first 3 games.
