New York hip hop legend Funkmaster Flex took to the internet to further ignite the flames between the Eastern Conference rival New York Knicks and Boston Celtics on Tuesday.
For reference, the Knicks addressed the New York media after their practice Tuesday afternoon and Sixth Man of the Year, guard JR Smith suggested that things would have been different Sunday had he played.
Oh yeah, it would’ve been over. I’d have been playing golf today.”
Who knew that Smith even played golf?
In case you have forgotten, Smith missed Sunday’s closeout game against the Celtics because he was serving a one game suspension for elbowing Boston guard Jason Terry in the face.
Terry’s play was pivotal in helping the Celtics notch their first win of the series. He finished the game with 18 points—he outscored the Knicks by himself in overtime, scoring nine points to their six.
When prompted about Terry’s Game 4 heroics, Smith’s response was less than respectful, “I don’t know who that is.”
When asked if Terry might bait him into getting another ejection, he maintained his blissful ignorance, “Who’s that? I don’t know who that is. I’m sorry.’’
Meanwhile, Terry took time today to respond to Knicks power forward Kenyon Martin who had previously instructed his teammates to wear “funeral colors” to Game 5.
I thought they wore that last game, too. For us, it doesn’t change. Whether they wear white, pink, blue, black, green, it’s Game 7 for us. So we know what mindset we have to be in. You lose, you’re going home.”
Needless to say, the atmosphere for Game 5 will be quite vitriolic come Wednesday.
