Just copying and pasting the tweet I saw on the cover page of this site.

What do we think? It's certainly debatable as to whether Smith is a max contract player, but IF he's interested in Boston, he's too talented a player to just turn away from, no?

Josh Smith rumor?

I keep hearing Josh Smith's primary destination is Boston.

He will have to play for a discount, not even just a non-max contract but a deep discount, right?

Don't want Smith.  He is a knucklehead.

It is, because of Rondo.
But it'll also be Rondo who convinces him to sign cheap here.

Unless we find a way to shed a lot of salary in the offseason, this is my understanding as well. 

If he's willing to do that, though, then I'd welcome him with open arms.  He's a very good player, even if he is a bit of a bonehead.

If he makes less boneheaded plays under Doc I'd like him on this team

You guys are crazy if you don't want josh smith. Now if we're talking max contract then no but if he comes for a discount of course you take him.

I'm not big on capology, but I'm pretty sure that as things stand now, we have absolutely no shot of signing him in the off-season.  Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it would probably take both Paul and KG retiring to have the cap space to make it happen. Even then, I'm not sure we'd be able to do it.

I like JSmoove and all, but IMHO he is not the answer to 'who will be one of the torch bearers for the C's in the Post Pierce/Garnett Era?' unless you want an annual second round playoff exit. Smoove peaked a couple of years ago. He has no go to move, and outside of his freakish athleticism I don't know if he has ever gotten the most out of his abilities.

Outside of rebounding and some highlight reel blocks, I'd would take the Captain over JSmoove any day of the week with the exception of Sunday (morning games), and on that day I would go with our J(Swoop) Green.

he has not impressed me at all when we play him. plus we have enough jump shooters. we need bigs down low who are ready to go to war in the paint.

let pierce and kg retires?
it just makes us worst next year without him

you mean rondo and smith running the show and making it to the finals? i don't think so
i'll pass on him

kg still got this, he can still play his 3 years
and also pierce
that makes us a contender and a shot to finals again
