JR Smith’s spirit lives on!

Is this the weirdest JR Smith quote ever?

NBA: Playoffs-New York Knicks at Indiana Pacers

JR Smith has said and done some pretty questionable things over the years. So we shouldn’t be surprised when he goes off the wagon now and then. But his quote about defense after the Knicks’ loss to the Pistons on Friday was, well, impressively strange. Here’s what JR had to say:

“If you don’t get offended by somebody scoring on you then I don’t know what to tell you. That is like somebody breaking into your house and just taking your video game out of your hand and you just let it happen. I know if you do that to me, it ain’t going to happen. I love my Xbox.”

JR Smith might claim to love his Xbox, but given that defense is one of the weaker parts of his game,  I suspect he’s more of a PlayStation guy…

One year later, the Angry Knicks Fan is still angry

The roof didn’t come off for Billy “Eugene” Faison during one of his four deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, or at any other point during his 17 years (and counting) in the army. No, Billy’s lid popped on a cold December day in Indiana, as he watched the Knicks get absolutely decimated by a shorthanded Celtics team.

That 41-point beatdown came on December 8, 2013, one year ago today. The game was a rout from the start, arguably the worst showing in a season full of lackluster efforts for the Knicks. Nearly all Knicks fans were upset… but very few got as angry as Billy, whose tirade (which you can watch below, although be advised of the NSFW language) quickly went viral.

“I was just ranting like I always do,” Billy The Angry Knicks Fan told me when I reached out to him on the anniversary of his rant, “My homie who was behind me is actually a Boston fan. And truth be told, I had no idea I was being filmed til a few moments into the video.”

“They know I’m like this all the time, so Chanci always said he was gonna sneak one on me, so he did.”

Chanci, Billy’s friend and the man who filmed the video, provides a priceless, calm, running commentary which serves as the backup vocals to Billy’s rage.

As for the Knicks gear he buried in the snow (GIF above), Billy has yet to have a change of heart:

“Haven’t worn the shirt, hat or shoes since…I don’t know where the shirt and hat are, shoes are in the closet. Haven’t worn Knicks apparel since.”

The Knicks started turning things around about a month after Billy’s outburst, and salvaged a scrap of dignity with a strong second half, although they fell just short of the playoffs. But the Knicks are off to their worst start in franchise history this season, and Billy is as angry as ever:

“As a fan it looks like we are going through the motions, and this team on a nightly basis doesn’t believe they can win any game.”

“Basically it looks like the Knicks just go out there collecting a check,” said Billy, who cited JR Smith, Tim Hardaway Junior, and General Manager Steve Mills as the most frequent inducers of his wrath, while sparing the universally-admired Pablo Prigioni.

So here we are on December 8, 2014. Billy wasn’t a one-hit wonder. He still posts his angry thoughts on his Youtube channel, Facebook page, and Twitter. While many view his work as pure comedy, he raises many fair points, and as we celebrate the one year anniversary of his explosion, it’s frustrating to see that the Knicks, at least in the standings, are in an even worse place than they were a year ago.

Did Clyde Frazier just call the Knicks “Retarded” ??? (VINE)

So I’m PRETTY sure that just happened.

Clyde has Tenure. You cannot touch Clyde.

Looks like there won’t be a Glen Rice III, am I right?

The triangle is more complicated than I thought.

Farewell, Raymond Felton (Music Video)

Raymond Felton had some highs and lows during his time with the Knicks. As time went on, we started seeing a lot more of the lows. I made an Andrea Bargnani Music Video last week, so I figured I’d try making one for Raymond Felton. Enjoy, and share!

Special thanks to ObGlobal.net for providing so many Felton clips for me to work with.

The video above leaves out most of Felton’s defensive catastrophes, but there were more than enough problems for Ray on offense. Good riddance…

JR Smith has discovered the Kermit Meme

There are probably far more productive things JR Smith could be learning about right now. The Triangle Offense, perhaps? But upon second thought, that is not intertwined with any of my affairs.

Anyway, these are all screenshots of posts from JR’s Instagram. And speaking of Instagram, follow us at @NewYorkKnicksMemes !
