J.R. Smith says New York Knicks will win NBA championship


New York Knicks Sixth Man of the Year J.R. Smith is an important part of the team’s success and he believes that he will be able to help lead the team to a title in the upcoming season. Smith was discussing what is ahead for the Knicks in the 2013-14 season and he made it very clear that he believes a championship is in their immediate future.

From Marc Berman of the New York Post:

During a question-and-answer session with kid golfers at Chelsea Piers, Smith was asked how sure he was of the Knicks ending their title drought this season.

“I’m 100 percent sure,” the swingman said.

Smith was then asked why he joined the Knicks over the Nets when he came back from China in February 2012.

“The Nets weren’t good,’’ Smith said. “Now they’re still not good.’’

If Smith is correct, the Knicks and their fans will be thrilled that a championship has come their way. If not, it will just be the latest championship guarantee that was not lived up to.
