Bizarro basketball - J.R. Smith is playing with maturity. Kenyon Martin - he's helping guide Smith. And the Knicks
have the longest winning streak in the NBA because of it.
Martin, who played with Smith in Denver and knows of the hair that George Karl lost trying to control Smith, is impressed with what he sees now.
"He's just being aggressive as they come right now, attacking the basket," Martin said. "He's not settling. When he does that, it just opens his jump shot up even more.
"I don't know what he's eating for breakfast or dinner or whatever it is but we need him to keep doing it. He's putting us on his back at times when we need him to and he's making huge plays."
And about the claims that Mike Woodson has finally tamed him?
"Swish going be Swish though, man," Martin said. "He's going to come in, he's going to work, he's going to do what he has to do to help us win. But the other stuff, I don't get involved with it. That's Woody's job. If I can help with it I will."
