Chris Smith: I’m Not Here Because of J.R.
Chris Smith has heard the whispers and read the taunting tweets that suggest the only reason he’s on the Knicks training camp roster again is to babysit his big brother, J.R. (Smith). It’s something that’s both frustrating and motivating.
“Everybody just thinks I’m here because of J.R. But I’m here because [the Knicks] see potential me,” Smith said. “It’s very tough dealing with that. But at the same time I have to keep it moving. I have to focus on what I have to do, lock in and get the job done and be determined.”
