Jason Terry on J.R. Smith’s championship guarantee, “Maybe The Rucker Park Championship”

Jason Terry

Just when you thought that the trash talk between players of the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks couldn’t get any better, Nets guard Jason Terry decided to ramp it up.

Recently, JT got a chance to talk with the folks over at Dime Magazine and during the interview, he was asked by New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith guaranteeing a championship for this upcoming season:

Dime:Speaking of this upcoming season, you recently said that you guys have “the formula” to knock off the 2013 NBA champions, the Miami Heat. But there’s also another team in New York with championship aspirations after J.R. Smith recently guaranteed that the Knicks would be crowned in 2014. Talk about the hype going into this new found rivalry. 
JT: They would win what? What did he guarantee? They would win what? I didn’t hear that.

Dime:The championship.
JT: They would win the championship?

Dime:Yeah, he said 100 percent guarantee.
JT: The NBA championship?

JT: Right. Maybe the Rucker Park Championship. I don’t know, not the NBA championship. I don’t see how they could guarantee that, at all. I’m not buying it, so… I mean, it’s a bitter rivalry, you know it’s going to be intense, and however they feel over there in that locker room they are guaranteed and entitled to feel that way but we don’t want to see that happen on our watch.

And it is….on!
