lol .... The kid is talented as hell, but hearing him do interviews he definitely doesn't seem like he's the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Most coaches are pretty happy when their team gets 30 or so deflections for a game. Smith was on pace for that many on his own. And though Moon pretty much neutralized him offensively in the second half, Smith still dished the bulk of his seven assists, an aspect of the game I didn’t realize he had. I remember one NBA insider described Smith as a talent with “scrambled eggs for brains” but in his fourth NBA season at just 22 years old, the ceiling on this guy keeps rising. Not bad for a 17th pick.
