      I’ve been away a while, focusing on the ridiculous fact that the Yankees are still alive (well played, Girardi) and the start of the English Premier League (I miss you, Gareth). From the snippets I heard about this JR Smith thing it sounds like it was much ado about nothing, just some reporter trapping a guy with a stupid question (like when they asked Eli Manning if he thought he was as good as Tom Brady). But this little piece from Grantland documenting a fake text conversation with JR was hilarious:

      Excerpt:

      J.R.: nothing is more glorious than a fadeaway 3. Did you even know that I went to Africa this summer and spent like two months there just shooting fadeaway 3s in front of hungry kids???

      FWIW, I find what the Nets are doing to be reprehensible. Importing leftover shit from Boston is beneath the great borough of Brooklyn.

      Fuck Jason Terry.

      Hahaha. Me and my buddy were talking about this last night how if we didn’t already hate Brooklyn enough for all their annoying, fake “we’re taking over city” bullshit they had to go and acquire Pierce, Garnett and Terry. Loved Shumpert trolling Terry’s annoying Jet celebration in the playoffs last year.

      You do have to wonder how any Knicks fans who actually did make the switch last offseason are going to feel about rooting for Pierce and KG. Can’t feel good (although they probably weren’t the most serious Knicks fans if they actually left).

      Given their new status as instant title contenders, maybe Nets fans will actually start the “Broooklyn” chant at Barclays Center instead of the PA guy

      So, I was on line looking for Knicks rumors and I saw a link to an article on lakernation.com about how Melo is not planning on leaving the Knicks. On the website, they had a poll question — If the Lakers could sign only one player, who would you want, Melo or LeBron. 52% of the people who responded want Melo and 48% want LeBron. I guess that people in LA don’t read this site or else they would realize just how terrible Melo is…
