Would Smith add chemistry? 

Post#1 » by GoldenAntlers » Wed Feb 20, 2013 7:03 pm

Hey Bucks fans,

I just learned about this site recently and have been reading many of your posts for the last couple of weeks. It seems like this is the only place where serious talk of the Bucks is going on, so first, I thank you all for that as I have learned much.

I have a varying degree of interest in Jennings/Ellis. As a fan, watching their dynamism is both exciting and frustrating. I know many of the members here would love to see either one or both of these players leave and I understand why, but I wonder, would Josh Smith in the starting line-up make them better team players or better players overall?

It is all heresy until tomorrow, but if the Bucks are looking to keep Ellis, Jennings, Sanders, (Henson), that means someone has to go, highly likely that someone (someones) would be Ilyasova and Dalembert. Honestly, I think both of these guys can go. Dalembert doesn't have much time left in the NBA and Ilyasova is too inconsistent for my taste (i know, you could flame me about jennings/ellis for the same comment. I do like how many charges he takes. :) )

Of course the major argument boils down to money and contracts ending this year.

As the above suggests, the starting line-up would be:

Jennings
Ellis
LRMBM
Smith
Sanders

We'd still have Henson, Dunleavy, Udrih and Udoh coming off the bench. Not to mention Harris (who is worth holding on to.)

If this team were able to find chemistry I think they could make it into the 2nd round of playoffs, and with that momentum, who knows.

I guess to play Devil's advocate, I'm wondering if maybe Milwaukee's problem wasn't too much swag, but not enough? If you are going to swag, go all out, or you are left with a team that has an identity issue.
If this move passes, I have a feeling many of you will be surprised by the outcome of this team once playoffs hit. Then again, this deal could easily be the worst move the Bucks have made in years.

Trying to see the light. :)

Can anybody tell me the pros/cons of Josh Smith, (as well as why he would or wouldn't enhance team chemistry) as I haven't actually seen the Hawks play in a couple of years?

Long post, but thanks for your thoughts.

Go Bucks!

Maybe, maybe not. I think Smith would excel in the pick and roll.

Real question is will this thread get locked or not?

Cue 500 different variations of this post:

"Smith would add SWAG!!!!"

followed by chuckles, giggles, and eventually guffaws...
