I've said this before but since repeating oneself is part of being a good blog citizen:
I think Smart is going to be a good pro, and like many here, I love his attitude, but I personally do not like his style of play on offense and do not think it makes any sense to pick him at #6 unless we are trading him or Rondo.
A backcourt with both Rondo and Smart makes no sense from a spacing perspective. In fact, that sounds like a disaster.
Several posters post hopefully and encouragingly that maybe Smart will fix his absurdly broken jump shot. And maybe that will happen. But why does it still look SOOOO awful after TWO college seasons, during which he took a ton of 3PT shots in games (not to mention how many in practice)?
He's taken almost 300 3PT attempts over that span -- 4.6 per game -- and probably thousands in practice, so it is not as if this is some obscure, low usage part of his game that coaches can ignore.
Why hasn't it shown any improvement? He 'improved' from a gawd-awful 29.0% as a freshman to a still-gawd-awful 29.9% as a sophomore.
I can live without a PG who can shoot 3PT shots. Seriously, I don't really believe that a PG HAS to be able to make them. I could care less if Rondo never took another 3PT shot in his NBA career.
But if you can't make them at an efficient rate WHY THE HECK ARE YOU TAKING THEM?
Taking lots of low-efficiency shots hurts your team. It's my biggest peeve in basketball. "It's a make/miss league." is not just a trite saying. It is a dead-on truism. Misses are no different than turnovers 70% of the time. If you miss a lot, you lose games.
This is one of the reasons why Rondo is such a good player - he may not take a lot of shots, but he takes the shots he's efficient at and that's why his career shooting efficiencies are very good. He doesn't hurt his team by generating excess misses.
If Smart had that same ugly shooting form and same lousy efficiency at them and only took maybe 1 3PT shot per game, and did everything else in his game exactly the same, I would be extremely high on him.
If I could be confident that he will change his game in the NBA to either (a) actually truly be able to fix his shot mechanics OR (b) become far more discriminating with his own shots (i.e., more "Rondo-like") then I'd be totally on-board with taking Smart at #6.
But I'm not confident of either of those things.
