J.R. Smith questions returning to the Knicks after getting criticized by fans

The roller coaster Knicks season finally came to an end in Miami on Wednesday, this time with everybody’s appendages in tact.

After the game J.R. Smith, who finished with a brutal 3-of-15 shooting from the field and a minus-20 plus/minus in over 35 minutes of action, heard the brunt of frustration from Knicks fans on Twitter. Smith was kind enough to share some of those thoughtful tweets with us:

Then Smith himself weighed in, and it sounded like his feelings were hurt.

Indeed, Smith has a player option for next season that he can exercise this summer. It’s unclear at this point what he’s going to do. Who knows if he’s going to let a few trolls on Twitter dictate his decision?

But let’s face it. Smith isn’t nearly the Knicks’ biggest problem. The Knicks had no chance in this series. Blaming Smith is like blaming his family for the tense nature of U.S.-Chinese relations.
