Josh-Smith

When it is time for your big payday, you have to grab as much money as you can. Josh Smith has been waiting for this day for a while and it is coming soon.

He has been rumored to be traded for almost three years now, but wherever he ends up he believes he is worth the maximum contract available.

“I feel like I’m a max player,” Smith said, via The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I feel I bring a lot to the table. I have a lot of versatility. For what I do and what I give this ballclub, I feel like I’m worth it.”

“There shouldn’t be any hesitation. I’m Josh Smith; I’m not anybody else. I’m not Michael Jordan. I’m not LeBron James. I’m not Brook Lopez. I’m Josh Smith. You can’t look at what might’ve happened with another person. Let’s say Joe. You can’t say, ‘I’m skeptical of giving another person that’ because of whatever they feel like happened.”

He definitely isn’t Jordan, Bron or Lopez, but I get what he is saying. The Hawks were burned with Joe Johnson and while Smith is a solid player, he isn’t a franchise player, so they should try to trade him before the deadline.

    I’m a Josh Smith fan. He’s not a max contract guy, though. You’re only a max guy if you can be the best player on championship caliber team. Josh is a guy that is the 2nd or 3rd best player on a championship caliber team and should be paid accordingly.
