J.R. Smith has mostly been a gift to New York Knicks fans, but turned in a heavy dose of curse during the second round of the NBA Playoffs.
His offseason has taken a similar tone. After re-signing to the tune of four years and $24 million, it was determined that the reigning Sixth Man of the Year needed knee surgery.

Don't worry, fellow Knicks fans. I'm sure this will all turn out fine. It'll be fine. I'm sure of it.
