08:08 AM ET 08.06 | Credit J.R. Smith for his optimism. The way things are set up, the Knicks have a three-year window to compete for a title with their current group. [Smith], for one, believes they can get it done -- possibly as soon as this season. In an interview with ESPNNewYork.com this weekend, Smith said he thinks that the Knicks, on paper, have the talent to win a championship, something the franchise hasn't done in 40 years. "Right now with the talent we have, what it says on paper is championship all day. But it's a matter of us going out there and doing it," Smith said. ... Smith says he goes into every season with a "championship or bust" mentality. But that's particularly true this season.

I always like to start the day off with a good joke. Most of the time Garfield makes me laugh. But today it's J.R. Smith's joke that's making me laugh.

Lol, he is one of the reasons they have so much trouble, he launches a damn three everytime he touches the ball.

I hate him.

You have every reason to. I watched him for the first time when they played the Bulls and was amazed at how many times he just threw the ball up there without even thinking about passing it .

"Smith says he goes into every season with a "championship or bust" mentality."

Which means he concedes that his career has thus far been a TOTAL bust!!!!!

Threads like this make you long for a D12 thread?

Don't worry the interns got your covered. As far as the Knicks winning a championship, JR must be dreaming. No way this group makes it to the Eastern Conference Finals, let alone the NBA Finals.

Hard to make a wise crack when the title of the thread is funnier than anything I can come up with!
