New York Knicks Guard J.R. Smith Named NBA Sixth Man Of The Year Award

April 23, 2013 0



New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith is coming off the best year in his NBA career and his hard work and growth has turned into being named the 2013 NBA Sixth man of the year.

After entering training camp expecting to be a starter for the Knicks, Smith was sold the idea of coming off the bench by Knicks head coach Mike Woodson and by giving the Knicks a form of instant offense in relief of NBA scoring champ Carmelo Anthony that would help the Knicks march into the playoffs and it seems Woodson’s plan worked perfectly.

Smith averaged 18 points and 5 rebounds, both career highs and he contributed to the Knicks second seeding in the eastern conference playoffs and the Knicks 13 game winning streak. Smith and his New York Knicks take on the Boston Celtics live at Madison Square Garden tonight at 8pm on TNT. The Knicks are up in the series 1-0.
