    Did Josh Smith just toss the game for the Celtics

    I've never seen a player do so much to give a game away

    That was sort of strange after killing us the entire game.

    Re: Did Josh Smith just toss the game for the Celtics

    Brain farts and bad shots are his M.O. that is why he is not a max player but a contenders 3rd best player... as the Hawks 2nd best player they were at best a 2nd rd team the past 5 years.

    he had 32-9-8, was a +5 (all other starters a -) and made some big defensive plays... but missed a FT, went 3-9 from 3 (when he should never take more than 2-3 open ones a game) and had 5 turnovers, thats Josh Smith for you.

    As the graphic showed he is a remarkably consistent 16-8 every year with 2+ blocks, all D nods, etc... but no all-star games and not a clutch player. If Green is worth 9m Smith is making his exact value right now at 13.

    In response to Kirk6's comment:

    I never understood why people wanted to trade Pierce for Smith.

    Pierce is clutch.



    I wouldn't have made the trade unless KG was also being moved and it was a rebuild

    But the stats don't lie, did you see them during the game... not just the 32-9-8 but the consistent 16-8 with 2 blocks he has been for years now, all defense, etc. He is 8 years younger than Pierce, maybe thats another reason why people would have swapped them?

    He just needs a good coach, PG and to be the teams 3rd best player... he's never really had or been able to be any of those things. Hawks were at their best when JJ was the closer.

    The first half, I'm saying over rated...Second half, Oh my gosh...

    Ot, goof balls....Kg would not make that pass with game on line...

    Rondo, maybe...lol

    Josh has incredible game, he can do it all, but he is horrible in the clutch and either selfish or just dumb.

    Typical talented LOW BASKETBALL IQ PLAYER. Like Antoine Walker only Antoine had more skill and more basketball smarts. When the pressure ramps up, the brain cramps up.

    The comparison to walker is spot on. A talented knuckle-head. Still, to swap him for a player that is about to retire? Tempting. Oh, well. I could have lived with it either way. I didn't see where it said he was willing to sign an extension though, so you have to take that into account.

    What if you can get him for nothing as a free agent and pay 13 per?

    I would like Josh a lot better if he made up his mind to be a 18 rebounds a game player and the best defender of forwards in the game.

    Agreed DaCelts.  The kid needs s strong coach to change his mindset and define what you just said as his personal standard for success.  But he is 28 already.  I worked with a guy who's son was one of Josh's high school buddies.  My co-worker said Josh would still come over for sleep overs after he was a Hawks star and that he was a nice respectful kid (age 20 at that time).  Maybe he can be turned into a team goal guy after this mid-career big contract.

    Jeff is shaping up as one of the best small forward defenders in the game. Power forwards, not so much.

    I'd say whatever team got him at that rate would get a good deal

    It of course won't be the Celtics, who have only the MLE to offer unless Pierce and KG retire, which i highly doubt happens
