Josh Smith is a bad man.: Wait, no he's not.

On one side, we've got a sports reporter who hasn't explained the factual basis for his comments, and, on the other side, a self-interest player and his teammate who probably would prefer that the story go away (even if true). So who's telling the truth?

Who cares, this is dumb. Even if he said that, it would have been out of frustration, and the only two people that would care are the coach and Tyronn Lue.... who both, obviously don't.

Hmm, an episode of the twilight zone.

Who cares, this is dumb. Apparently Josh Smith does. I find it interesting that McCosky saw this but apparently no one else covering the game did. The AJC's beat writer, Sekou Smith doesn't mention it in the recap. And its not like the AJC is soft-balling their Hawks coverage. Hell, they're already asking why Acie Law isn't playing in the 4th quarter, even though he's only played in four pro games, ever. (Though to be fair, he's started them all.) Looking at the box score, Smith didn't have a good game. But pardon me if I find the notion that Smith's having one bad game is going to tank the Hawks entire season. Never mind that their starting center Pachulia has only played 7 minutes total so far this season, just a smidge less than the 8 minutes that primary back-up PG Anthony Johnson has played. Never mind the injuries to rotation players Speedy Claxton, and Lorenzon Wright. No, its Josh Smith's bad attitude thats got the Hawks off to a slow start. My god, does McCosky write this badly about the Pistons?
