Is Mike D'Antoni ********? Why is JR Smith not starting? Yeah I know he is an average defender. But he is still one of the better SGs in the NBA. Certainly better than Shumpert and Fields.

Shumpert is a better defender and plays with more heart.

Fields also plays with more heart.

Both players do things that you won't find on a stat line but do things that help us win.

Maybe if he could start shooting 40% from the floor more often, he may get more playing time? :shrug:

Are you new to the NBA? JR Smith is more effective off the bench, and he has been good off the bench his whole career.. His style of play is more suited for the bench..

Are u crazy? Shumpert is a future hall of famer, in fact the whole starting Knicks 5 are future hall of famers, especially Lin. That's why they are the 8th seed, under 500 and need 100 threads about them.

Ever hear of having a good bench? That's why he doesn't start..

He doesnt start because Fields is one of the 2 starters (4 on the entire roster) that plays defense.

D'Antoni sees JR as his Barbosa in NYC. And I can't say I disagree with him being in that role.

To have a scoring option off the bench, why didn't LO start on the Lakers?

Shumpert should be the starter now and for the future! Deemerc what was the point of your post? lol

From what i've seen JR is a cancerous chucker who stagnates the offense and takes worse shots than 'Melo.

Exactly why I fell he was a bad fit for the Knicks, hopefully he can turn it around sooner rather than later but at this point this may be who he is

It's probably a difficult transition from ******** on those players in China to playing against stronger, faster competition.

these knicks fans all they care is having the best player in each position. they don't think about team chemistry, bench and how their performing.

Okay this thread probably wasn't the best idea. I guess that's what happens when you make a thread while you are not sober.

But I'll still defend it and say that at the very least, Smith is the best SG on the Knicks roster right now. Fields is not an NBA starter. I'm sorry, but he really isn't even a very good defender. Shumpert can't shoot at all. I actually think the Knicks should start Davis -- Smith -- Carmelo -- Amare -- Chandler.

I'm not necessarily saying they should stick with the lineup if it doesn't work out, but clearly the Knicks need to change something up.

And yeah maybe Smith isn't playing that great right now, but I never really believed that he should only be pegged as a bench player. By the way, I am not a Knicks fan.

This is actually one of the few decisions I could agree with D'Antoni on.....JR was never great as a starter. Much better off the bench

But how many opportunities did he really get to be the starter? Not that many since he has improved in the past couple of years. I'm sure there will be an adjustment period.

I just don't see why he is necessarily a bench player if he is better than the other SGs on the roster. Shumpert could provide bench scoring. Its similar to the James Harden situation. Harden got one or two shots at starting, had a bad game, and went back to the bench. Harden's defense has improved--he is clearly the Thunder's best option at SG--so why wouldn't they want the best team on the floor as much as possible? Smith's situation is similar, though of course, Smith is not as good as Harden.

On what planet is JR Smith even an average defender?
