J.R. Smith calls Knicks season “a nightmare”, Phil Jax tweets on Christmas Eve

Starting the season at 5-25, J.R. Smith just wants to wake up from this Knicks nightmare. At least that’s how he describes this season so far, via Zach Braziller of the New York Daily News:

“It’s a nightmare,” Smith said after practice Tuesday. “We just got to wake up from it.

“I mean, to be 5-25, we had a lot of expectations coming in here so to be in the situation we’re in, it’s a nightmare for me anyway.”

The expectations were for the Knicks to at the very least to improve from their playoff-less season last year, especially after bringing in the ora of Phil Jackson. Carmelo Anthony said he expected this team to be in the playoffs this season, as did Phil Jackson. Instead it’s been a fatal transition into the triangle offense and a simple realization that this team is void of the necessary talent outside of Carmelo Anthony.

Smith has had his personal struggles with the triangle offense this season, despite feeling that the Knicks have the best shooting guard core in the entire league. He has been ruled out (heel) for the Knicks’ Christmas Day match up against the Wizards.

In case Knicks fans are in search of extra hope for the holiday, from your president Phil Jackson via Twitter:
