09:13 AM ET 09.01 | J.R. Smith guaranteed yesterday the Knicks will bring home a championship and claimed the Nets are "still not good." 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."

J.R. must have been out late clubbing and inebriated when he made this claim. The Knicks may not even be the best team in N.Y. let alone the NBA.

Patrick Ewing also guaranteed the knicks would win it all...
Ewing however was a star, J.R is a role player that could be an all star but is never gonna get it.

And I thought Lamar Odom was the only one smoking crack in the NBA.

He didn't say when. It's been 40 years. Maybe sometime in the next 40, but J.R. certainly won't be a part of it.

The NBA better give J.R. a drug test!!! The dude is on something!!!

Funny that a player that didn't show up in the playoffs when it counted is the one that's talking smack! How can you guarantee a championship when you don't even show up?

Did he tell them to print it in three inch headlines?


Because if he didn't, then nobody cares.

I see JR Smith is shooting of his mouth again. To bad he can't back it up.

Instead of shooting of his mouth. Maybe JR should go to the gym and learn what a good shot is from a bad shot.
