J.R. Smith has never been one to be coy and not speak his mind with the media.
At the Monroe Sports Center where he and his brother, fellow Knicks guard Chris Smith, were running a basketball clinic, Smith was approached about several topics and as usual, he mostly shot from the hip.
Smith has said publicly that he had more money offered to him, but in the end, liked being home and liked playing for the Knicks. He ultimately signed a two-year contract with the second year being a player option. He will make $2.8 million this coming season under the contract.
“I think anything is a bargain with me, whether I’m playing for a dollar or $20 million it’s a bargain because I’m going to play hard no matter what,” Smith told SNY.tv. “No matter how much I get paid, it will never affect how hard I play and I think that should be thought about when people see me next year.”
