Ok maybe on paper or on nba 2k8 Josh Smith would be good. This guy will come in and think that its his team. It is now rudy gays team. Smith is pretty full of himself. I just dont think it will work.

where did you get that impression? josh smith already plays a secondary role on offense to joe johnson, he doesn't seem to mind. he is a very good (and willing) passer too for a guy thats 6'9.

I agree that he is talented. But after his first two seasons and getting hype from the media. He got a big head. He argued with there old coach from time to time. He could be a problem on this squad that is trying to rebuild.

Although he was wrong about the 'old coach' thing, he is right about Josh Smith thinking he's the ****. It's been told a number of times that he often gets angry after games because he thinks the ball didn't come to him enough so he could score etc. etc., and from time to time, he has been known to argue with the coaching staff extensively about his role on the team.

Also, I recall last year Zaza Pachulia and Smith got into an argument after a game where Smith was critizing everyones efforts in the game. Zaza had him pinned up against a wall telling to 'never say that kind of stuff about your teammates'. Since then, though - I haven't heard much of Smith being a hard-ass to the coaching staff or anything like that. He's really matured this season and is finally accepting of his role, but I think it's because his role for the Hawks has changed.

With that said, I'd like to see him playing for the Grizzlies at the PF spot, there'd be so much athleticism and versatility in the front-court, and hopefully if they draft well enough, they should be a very athletic running team for the future. Ahh, the possibilities!

I thought mike woodson got fired. So I was actually talking about him. We need to just wait and see what happens. Maybe we get more picks. We should try trading miller to a team that would be willing to trade there pick. Like the warriors or the blazers. That way there is a good chance of getting two lottery picks.
