Atlantas best bid for an allstar is johnson, so smith losses out, and he;s making sure he will always lose out by being a crybaby
I think the point about Johnson is really relevant. In my opinion, Johnson was selected because of positional circumstance. The East had guard spots to fill. Johnson is not necessarily the most deserving Hawk player, though. Unfortunately for Smith, there were several other deserving forwards in the East. Bosh, Peirce, Deng and Iggy are all deserving. And once you've already got Johnson on the East roster, it's easier to justify recognizing someon from other teams.
