10:38 AM ET 01.11 | The Knicks, including owner James Dolan and coach Mike Woodson, were not pleased that J.R. Smith pretended to untie Detroit's Greg Monroe's sneakers Tuesday after receiving a warning from the league for untying Shawn Marion's sneakers in Sunday's win over Dallas. Smith was fined $50,000 by the NBA for repeated unsportsmanlike offenses. But according to a source, Smith got on Dolan's bad side days earlier for his response -- both privately and publicly -- to the club releasing Smith's younger brother, Chris. The Smith brothers were called into a meeting with Woodson and team president Steve Mills and informed of the move. The elder Smith did not take the news well and expressed his frustration first behind closed doors and then via Instagram when he referred to being betrayed.

He'll try to fight the suspension in federal court. He says he plans to show up for spring training... gotta wonder if the Yanks will let him.
