J.R. Smith has guaranteed a New York Knicks championship in 2012-13. Smith told the New York Post that the squad was heading into the season with a “championship or bust” mentality.
When asked what fans could expect from the Knicks this season, Smith said frankly, “a championship.”
“Nothing less,” Smith said. “If we settle for anything less, we already start off losing.” Smith also called out some of the top contending teams in the NBA in the interview, saying the Knicks will beat any of them.
“Lakers, Heat – whoever,” Smith said.
