How does Smart have an attitude problem?

Oh, yeah, real plus-minus, yeah, right. The one stat in wich he’s 22nd among point guards (just under the legendary Ish Smith, but above the remains of the Linsanity)? The stat where every Boston bench guy ranks well?

He’s just average by advanced stats. That’s why Boston guys beg us to look at the tape…where he looks average. But if you curate the moments of the tape well, he looks like a real steal for whomever trade for him.

Please, God, don’t let a misguided franchise trade a rim protector for Marcus Smart. Please, God. Please.

(I know he’s good, just stop the advertising. He’s not way better than stats make him look. He’s exactly what the stats say he is)

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
