Tim Hardaway JR is becoming a daily topic on Ballislife this preseason. It all started with a game winner, then yesterday he was on here for a yin and yang as he got crossed up the way his Daddy used to do defenders but then threw down a dunk like his Daddy used to never do.
Last night, the Hardaway with hops, put them on display again against the Celtics when he caught this lob from our favorite rapping baller.
Unfortunately for Hardaway that oop would be one of the few bright spots for him and the Knicks last night. JR hit just 3 of 16 shots in a 30 point loss. As for Boston, their rookie, Olynyk, had an impressive 15 points on 5-6 shooting, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and a block off the bench.
