Yes, he shoots the 3 which pulls their big out, but he does it fast. He sprints the court and gets to his spot. If he is hitting, the other teams Center might have trouble keeping up.
That said, if he isnt hitting...ouch.

I think we're using different eye tests. :lol: He's a great guy to have at the VERY END of the bench, and he can help out with the occasional 3, but he's a terrible defender - no matter the position he plays.

I'll take the over, he's never missed more than half the season. He's had only 2 injury plague years with LAL and HOU

DRPM, DPM, DRTG all have the same flaw, they're not even close to being an accurate measure of which players deserve credit for negative or positive defensive possessions.

Smith is not a passable defender, not even remotely close. The only chaos Smith creates on the floor is self inflicted. Consistently out of position, slow to react as a help defender and he fouls at a clip that's close to Mahinmi's rate.

He's unplayable in anything but mop up duty.

It just means that he will be playing the whole game so as to avoid sitting.

Someone on the board dubbed him "Wonderbutt" the other day! Loved it! From now on he will be known in my brain at least as "Captain Wonder Butt"! Hope he plays well however, the team could use some rebounding and in interior presence.

Meh. Pretty clearly bs. Voice clearly isn't Dwight and nobody would actually have full conversations over the phone about cheating in 2018.

Hey! This is the karma that Ernie Grunfeld attracts, it will be funny to see if Mahinmi and Howard remain sidelined
