Not doubting you, but can you provide that direct quote? I've never heard/read this, and I'd find it odd a journalist would admit to such a thing.
I mean, I think it's obvious that in order to keep in touch with the team you cover on the daily you can't necessarily go 'all guns blazing' all the time (and I know Smith has a soft touch, relatively), but admitting something like that seems out of line for a past President of the Professional Basketball Writer's Association.
