What a moronic thing to say after his abysmal 1-10 shooting performance. Sure, he makes unique plays and provides a high level of intensity, but he is a back-up guard. Noel thought the same thing when he turned down 70M over 4 years from the Mavs and took the QO. I guess that is the best we can hope for with Smart.
Funny thing is, the picture frame incident was very close to being a season ender. If that had happened, we might very well be talking tax-payers MLE right now for the guy. This playoff run was a lot of fun, but it might have cost us Smart and Baynes.
