Another Fine Looming for Knicks’ J.R. Smith?

It’s been a tough season for J.R. Smith, from knee surgery to his suspension for marijuana use, to his failed stint as a starter to multiple benchings. Oh, and there was the fine for twice untying opponents shoes, so on Monday he tried pulling down (Vince) Carter’s headband. That didn’t help either.

“No, your eyes are playing tricks on you. Y’all reaching for that one. I already got fined once this season for that [stuff],’’ grinned Smith, despite video that clearly showed him pulling down Carter’s headband with the Knicks trailing 90-85 with 10:43 left in the game.

The fine was $50,000 for untying Dallas forward Shawn Marion’s shoes on Jan. 5 and — after being warned about the error of his ways — trying to untie Greg Monroe’s in the very next game. He faces the prospect of another fine from Rod Thorn, the NBA vice president of basketball operations.
