Josh Smith or Luol Deng?

Steve Weinman at CelticsBlog asks the question (HT: Kelly Dwyer):
Buried in Atlanta, Josh Smith could well be a bigger, better version of Luol Deng.
A good read, inspired by Smith's outstanding performance in Orlando Monday night and written before he torpedoed the Atlanta cause against Toronto last night. Because Steve (admittedly) doesn't see the Hawks play very often, he overrates Smith's defense (great shot blocker, good help defender, reckless gambler, and helpless when posted up against) and understates his poor shot selection (which is, again, so bad because he's so effective when he attacks the basket).

Ballhype: hype it up!
