With the New York Knicks out of the playoffs, there are plenty finger pointing to go around. One of the many assumptions why the Knicks didn't advance to the next round belongs to J.R. Smith, who may have let his off-the-field lifestyle conflict with his on-the-court performance. But, here's Jalen Rose to the rescue.
