Kurt Thomas believes the J.R. Smith shoelace saga never would have happened last season if he and other veterans were on the roster. “I don’t think so, I don’t think that’s something that would happen,” Thomas said Monday night on Anthony Donahue’s Internet radio show on The Knicks Blog. “Especially if you have a veteran guy to pull him to the side, to get in his ear, to let him know the importance of him staying focused on the task at hand and that’s his job to go out there and to perform on the highest level.”

Sources told ESPN.com that the Bulls have been trying to convince Thomas, who’s now 41 and ranked as the NBA’s oldest player last season with the Knicks, to join them for the playoffs to lend some added know-how and toughness to their frontcourt rotation. But Thomas has not played since last season and, according to sources, considers himself retired. The Dallas native and former TCU star was spotted last week at the American Airlines Center in his hometown to watch the Spurs and Mavs, two of his former teams, as a fan.

Kurt Thomas is considering a comeback, but it won’t be with the Knicks, his longtime agent Jerry Hicks said. Thomas, the 41-year-old power forward who lives in Dallas, has not officially retired after suffering a stress fracture in his left foot last March in his heroic Knicks performance in Salt Lake City against the Jazz. “If the right call comes, he’d come back,’’ Hicks told The Post. “He’d only play for a club that has a legitimate chance at winning a championship. Not the Knicks, I can tell you that.’’
