The Knicks saved themselves from elimination last night, but for New York fans, it would be pretty dope if J.R. Smith would also get out of his slump. Smith's Twitter account-warranting poor recent shooting performance continued last night as he went 4-for-11. He also had the bad press of Rihanna's Instagram ethering.

He said earlier that he wasn't worried about Rihanna's comments, but that's no fun. How is this Ratchet Meter going to work if he simply ignored it? Fortunately, he responded via Instagram.

So now, re-introducting, the MEN IN BLACK:
