I've been wondering about whats going on with smush. There has been articles about pretty much everyone on the roster and for some reason I have'nt really read on his improvement or what he's done over the offseason besides the fact that he played a few pick up games with some other NBA players back in july.
Also, i've noticed that it seems that he's not really pleased about farmar being there because he feels the preassure on his job, at least thats what it seems like.
The reports on Smush have been that he did a lot of weightlifting and added about 10 lbs. this summer in muscle, and that he's still getting used to playing as a bigger guy. From the games so far it seems that his long-range touch has improved somewhat (probably because his legs are stronger helping him get more distance on his shot), but I haven't noticed him attempting or making many mid-range shots which I believe is the assignment Phil gave him to work on over the summer. Hopefully he did work on his mid-range game and just hasn't broken it out yet, so far I'd say he seems a little more solid than the end of last year but still prone to his little pouting spells when things aren't going his way.
I heard that there seems to be a rift there between him and farmar because theres some pressure on him now. I heard from someone that went to go see the season ticket holder open practice that he saw them really going at eachother.
