 blockquote, div.yahoo_quoted { margin-left: 0 !important; border-left:1px #715FFA solid !important;  padding-left:1ex !important; background-color:white !important; }  Smart reminds me of DJ.  I don't want him traded for Earnest Brown 2.0.

Smart is a game changing player IMO.  This is only his second season, and the season is young.  He has had a couple of tremendous games, and the rest have been pretty solid.  Yes, he sometimes has trouble putting the ball in the hole, but he makes up for that with his tenacious defense and leadership. Case in point, the Houston game where he didn't score much, but had 9 rebounds, six assists, and several steals.  More importantly, though, his defense was superb, and he was a dominating force in the game.  I really expect he will continue to improve his game, and it would be a mistake to trade him unless he's part of a package that will bring us back a star quality player (and I'm not talking Hezonja here).  We have other assets, though, that might bring us what we need, so let's hold on to Marcus Smart.

I'm with you, Michael.  Smart is one of the LAST guys I'd get rid of.
