No knock on Walker. I only watch Cs games so I have no opinion on him yet. Need 30 games. But I've been sold on Smart as a top level player for 2 years now. Let's see if I'm proven right or wrong on that one.
There is no way Smart would be good enough to start for a contender. He’s a 6th man at best for a championship team. Replacing kemba, an all nba player, with smart for the starting pg is just stupid. Not really a knock on Smart, but he’s just a role player. You can’t trust him to hit an open shot when it counts, and his playmaking skills are just average, though you could see his improvements on those aspects.
