NEW YORK -- Chris Smith has made the New York Knicks' opening-day roster.

Smith is the younger brother of Knicks shooting guard J.R. Smith. His inclusion on the roster has stirred strong emotions among the team's fan base.

Knicks coach Mike Woodson acknowledged that Chris Smith's ties to his brother would influence whether the team kept or cut the 26-year-old guard.

Chris Smith said recently that he'd received strong criticism from Knicks fans on Twitter after he survived the team's initial roster cuts.
