The New York Knicks are guaranteed to win an championship this year according to a column written by Marc Berman of the New York Post. Berman’s source however was none other than Knicks sixth-man extraordinaire J.R. Smith.

Smith made headlines on Saturday after Ian Begley fired off a few tweets regarding the beef between Smith and new Brooklyn Nets wing Paul Pierce but that wasn’t the end of Earl The Third’s Saturday thoughts. The mercurial sharpshooter also made a few other disparaging comments about the Nets after guaranteeing a championship.
