There are things New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith likes a lot. One would be fancy cars. Another would be three pointers. Oh, and attention of course.

There are no cars involved in the below video, but two out of three isn’t too bad, right?

As the New York Knicks were finishing out the third quarter in their final preseason game, Smith brought the ball up court as the clock ticked down. Seeing just seconds left, Smith decided to fire up a shot from near mid-court which, of course, in traditional J.R. fashion, swished home.

The guy has never met a shot from distance he didn’t like.

Smith, understandably impressed with himself, turned around and began swinging his arms hilariously as if he was was jamming on an air guitar before making his way to the Knicks bench for a collection of high-fives.

The shot gave the Knicks a seven point lead before his Knicks and the visiting Charlotte Bobcats began play in the fourth quarter.
