Knicks’ J.R. Smith: I Upset The NBA Gods
Why did (New York Knick) J.R. Smith struggle so mightily in the postseason last spring?
“I call it ‘pissing the NBA gods off,’ ” Smith said. “You’re making, making, making a lot of shots — and you mess with the basketball game and the game gets you back. And it definitely got me back.”
Smith struggled mightily in the playoffs last season, making just 33 percent of his field-goal attempts.
Smith is still rehabbing from offseason surgery on his left knee and is expected to miss training camp and the preseason.
