Coach Smart is an oxymoron.

He plays 10 minutes and is the leading scorer for the whole game for the kings and smart comes up with the brilliant conclusion that he needs to play him more. Is it just me or is the world around us getting less smart!!!

Solid indication they are shopping him if playing time increases. He'll be packing his bags every few years if he stays in the league at all. Nice kid and great role model but not a solid NBA talent.

It's worth noting that a coach who has been coaching and associated with the league for many years in Wesphal really like Jimmer's game and new that when givin the time to understand the NBA and had more experience at the point guard position could be a very good player. Then Smart takes over with nowhere near the experience and he believes the opposite. Some guys do believe that if you can't jump out of the gym and your not as fast then your automatically not as good. I think Smart fits this category. If Steve Nash can have MVP seasons then Jimmer can be a good pro. How many people really thought Nash could play defense? He's been pretty good at it because he's smart and he adapted. John Stockton not the fastest guy around made the all defensive team in the NBA, he wasn't considered a fast guard. I get sick of the he can't play defense, you can learn defense and it's all about positioning, Look at Artest he was never the fastest forward in the league, but great defender at one point.

Is this right--averaging about a point per minute? Yes, Coach "Smart" needs to live up to his name.
