Smith is a nice nice player. But as a basketball player does nothing for me. As funkie has said, he relies on his athleticism TOO much.

There's a risk there, because he's now got accustomed to only using his athletic skills to play basketball. What happens when he turns 26? A 26 year old body can't do the same things a 22 yr. old can....or let's go older, how about 29-30? The problem with Josh Smith is that yes, he does get stats now, but he really doesn't understand the fundamentals of the game and how to execute them. And that's the difference between championships (San Antonio) and has beens.
