    We have to see where Smith will start as well.

    Having Sheed on the team helps guide that "everywhere" position as he could do that.

    Think about this. Does it matter?

    I mean, are you saying it matters because he will face one every night?

    Dude will probably be lucky to play 25 mpg in his first year. He can either play or not, he was dirt cheap.

    But having high level expectations, taking big shots, being THE MAN, being doubled, this is all stuff this guy has had to deal with.

    I just got done reading the newest Lowe novella Kyle Korver: An Offense Unto Himself, and thought back to this prediction a year ago. Man, I know I would have overpaid for Smith, but for $18 million, $9 million, and $7 million we would have had him, Korver, and Calderon. Add in Leonard (who we'd never get now) and McCollum, and this would have been a sweet squad with a Lebron stopper, better three-point shooting, better passing, and better defense. Playoffs and second-round, baby. I should have totally been the Pistons' GM.

    I'm curious if you guys still feel that way.

    I like how the redundancy in your post turns this into a work of art! While it would have been better if Kgreg had initially said "still," your redundancy highlights the inherent pomposity of my self-aggrandizing repost, while at the same time alluding to the other meaning for "still," which is a sauce-creation device. Beautiful turn-of-phrase, good sir!

    I got told that Korver was a bad defender and wasn't worth the money when I raised the same point.

    That's what I'd heard, too, but from the article I inferred that he's at least competent, probably on Singler's level.

    Singer's defense is next level.

    I never know whether it's next level hot garbage, or just serviceable. It seems that for every play he stays in front of a guy, there is another where he just gets blown by.
