Hopefully we can beat the team with the worst record in the league that just traded it's second leading scorer and leading rebounder...

We'll have a tough time beating anyone if the Hawks all decide to give the kind of rebounding and defensive effort that Josh Smith did last night.

I swear, it appeared as though the last place he wanted to be was the Staples Center. Hopefully he didn't spend the entire All-star break partying.
