07:25 AM ET 01.09 | Farewell, J.R. Smith? Amid multiple reports that the Knicks are shopping [Smith], the reaction among rival executives is predictable. "Is it April Fool's Day?" one rival executive asked SNY.tv. The executive added that "everybody" has heard the Knicks want to deal Smith. "Of course [they want to trade him], but only an idiot would take him. Can Steve Mills trade him to himself?" "I hear Shanghai has a spot," one rival GM told Ken Berger of CBSSports.com about a potential Smith trade. Both ESPN.com and CBSSports.com reported that the Knicks have been shopping the beleaguered Smith for a couple of weeks ??? and that was before he was fined $50,000 by the NBA Wednesday for his shoelace incidents with Greg Monroe of the Pistons and Shawn Marion of the Mavericks.

Where is JR when I need my boots untied?

Lol, very true words. JR Smith is a cancer like no other, and unlike Bynum, he is not even a talent that is in shortage. There are countless guards in the league

Isn't that why the Knicks have him??

Wasn't this the same GM that signed him to a big contract even though nobody was bidding for him? That same GM has the same personality as JR. Why would he need to announce the world that he is shopping him? Dumb! Real dumb!

that isn't even really the issue....

"only an idiot would allow him to still be playing"

Bench him or send him home.
take care of the matter internally

Melo #3- take a leadership role and get up in his face already

But he was a problem even before they signed him and you knew that. Isn't he the reason why you jumped ship right away? lol

I do believe the inmates are running the asylum in NY. No repercussions, internally, are happening to these players no matter what they say off the court or how they perform on the court......

there's no way they'll allow him to pass through customs.

Although him and their mayor out on the town?
