Almost as bad as NBA TV Canada not knowing that the Knicks do not have their 2014 first rounder...

Plus they used their amnesty clause a couple years ago on Billups. Lol

Even if they still had the amnesty clause they wouldn't be able to us it on Smith as he signed an extension after the CBA was signed. Players can only be amnestied if they were under contract before the new CBA was signed.

I know that, just saying they're fucked either way.

J.R. Smith was reportedly benched because of a verbal confrontation between him and Mike Woodson over playing time. JR Smith Reportedly Benched Because He Was Upset over Playing Time | Bleacher Report

It's getting harder by the day to envision a feel-good ending for the ongoing drama between New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson and volume-scorer J.R. Smith.

Less than a week after his healthy scratch during New York's 102-92 win over the Miami Heat, Smith was back on the bench for the duration of Tuesday's 108-98 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats.

So, what's been keeping Smith out of the action? Apparently his request to see more of it.

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News has the details behind Smith's latest DNP:

J.R. Smith's benching in Charlotte Tuesday night may have been a direct result of Smith sitting most of the overtime in Monday’s win over Phoenix.

According to a source, Smith was vocal with coach Mike Woodson about not starting the extra session against Phoenix after missing what would have been a game-winning shot at the end of regulation.

In addition to his Monday night tiff with Woodson, as reported by the NYDN, J.R. Smith was also late to a team meeting Tuesday, sources say.
