Question Do you think Josh Smith will be better than Vince Carter?

when all is said and done?

carter is obviously an elite scorer who is a very underrated passer

smith isn't on carter's level offensively, but he's a much better defender, shot blocker and is a very underrated passer himself.

i think smith has a solid shot at being considered better than carter when both careers are finished.

I don't think Josh Smith will be better than Joe Johnson.

No Smith is going to be a monster but VC will be a top candidate for the scoring title next year. Why compare players who play different positions anyway?

some people consider the matrix better then Vince, so Id say Josh Smith has a chance.

But Vince used to have a sick arsenal of offensive moves.. I dont know if Josh Smith will ever develop into a serious offensive threat.

He has been tutored by Olajuwan. I am predicting a 20/9/3/2.5 season this year, which probably will be a better all around season than VC

I think this is a totally reasonable prediction, especially considering these averages post all-star break:
March 20.3 9.5 3.2 3.5
April 21.1 10.3 3.7 2.4

Josh Smith is going to be like Shawn Marion. And there have been times in Carter's career when I would have preferred Marion (like when he quit on the Raptors). But when Carter is playing up to his potential, MArion can't touch him, and neither wil Smith.

Josh Smith will be an NBA All Star in his NBA career but he is no where near the caliber of a Vince Carter. Carter is one of the most amazing NBA Talent that ever grace the NBA floor in the last decade. When Carter is playing over the top of his game, you can even see the guy having a scoring spree and a triple double performance.

When all is sayd and done, VC will probably be in the top 60 players of all time, josh smith would be lucky to crack the top 600, sounds stupid but just think about it for a minute....

josh smith wont finish top 600 of all time...

So, ultimately, what's Atlanta's lineup gonna look like? They still don't have a solid center, but they have about 32 freaky athletic wings. Wouldn't a Warriors-style system suit them best?

By the end of the year, how's this for a lineup:
Law
Johnson
Smith
Williams (Marvin, I'm assuming)
Horford

Horford could take a year or two to develop, but the Hawks seem to actually have a semblance of a team now, instead of a bunch of mismatched swingmen.
