Let's look into our crystal ball for a moment and pretend we see Josh Smith wearing a Pistons jersey. Many will praise Joe Dumars for taking a big leap and bringing in an uber athletic, do it all wing player in the prime of his career and making a push for the playoffs. Just as many will crucify him for his short sightedness, desperation and waste of FA money on a player who doesn't make you an instant contender. So why there is there such a huge divide when it comes to Josh Smith, not only here in Detroit but across the league. Expectations. Everyone can see that outside of LeBron James there is no other player in the NBA who has his combination of athletic gifts and do it all abilities. Josh Smith is Scottie Pippen, Grant Hill, Shawn Marion, Vince Carter. There is nothing that Josh Smith or any of those other guys couldn't do on a basketball court, except lead their franchises to championship glory. But if someone said to you, you can have any one of these players in the prime of their career on your team would you really say no even if it seemingly wasn't a perfect fit?? Does everyone think that signing one player is going to cure all the teams ills? There could be countless more moves this franchise makes not only this off season but next and beyond to completely change the makeup of the team. Hell it isn't your money that is being thrown around here. This isn't a scenario where Rasheed Wallace walks through the door and is the missing piece of an already established championship puzzle. To not want a talent like Josh Smith to me just seems incredibly foolish.
