    Agreed. Josh Smith is a beast. I would take him (if we could get him) over Joe Johnson a million times over. He would be the perfect PF for this system.

    Sign and trade Lee + Chandler for Smith + Marvin Williams

    Atlanta gets to dump salary and still get an All-Star. And allows them to resign Joe Johnson without going far over luxury tax threshold. Probably has zero chance of happening, but I can hope.

    No he's not. You take Johnson off that team and they don't make the playoffs. Yes Smith is the better fit for here, but Johnson is the better player. Still, Joe has been atrocious of late. It should be OFFICIAL in Donnie's book that Joe Johnson is NOT worth a MAX contract. I think some stupid desperate team will hand him a max contract. I just hope and pray that it's not us. I think a 5 year 60 mil or 65 mil deal is a fair value for JJ, but he'll definetely ask for more.

    I have been a hater of the mere thought of signing Johnson since day one of the announcement of the Knicks interest in him.

    VS Orlando in the current series he has scored:

    Game 1 - 10 points
    Game 2 - 19 points
    Game 3 - 8 points

    All while being guarded by Orlando's back court.

    That's ****ing putrid. I bet the Hawks are rejoicing that he declined their most recent extension offer.

    Yes Smith is the better fit for here, but Johnson is the better player.
    Johnson gets a lot more of the ball though. If he's better, IMO, it's marginal. Smith's efficiency has always been on par if not higher (as it is in the Orlando series) than JJ's.

    Joe Johnson is worth as much as Lee if he's lucky.

    Poo > Joe Johnson

    I've called the exact same trade. Smoove would get his first all star nod if he played here. That'd be a better signing than Bosh as far as I'm concerned.

    Joe Johnson needs to fire his agent!

    Or his agent needs to drop him!

    Because the two collaborated last season and turned down 60 million dollars so he can be apart of the "Greatest FA class ever" but one thing needed to happen.....Joe needed to perform, and to his credit he did during the season, but faded when he needed to shine.

    Even Jerome James knew that in a contract year the playoffs is the time to perform to pimp GMs


    Joe is lucky if he gets a 50 million dollar offer this year


    oh and peep what he said about the Hawks fans

    ďThey donít bother me. Itís about us in this locker room. We could care less if they showed up or not"

    This pretty much sums up if Joe can handle playing in NY and hell if I'm Atlanta Crawford is a cheaper option for us!


    I still like Joe, but he played himself this year.

    The only reason Smoove isn't better than JJ yet is because he's a bonehead at times. I mean the guy's got all the talent in the world. Even with his gaudy stats in the Hawks I think he's underachieving. Imagine the stats he could put up in this offense. Saliva-inducing, that's what lol.

    And Bosh will always be a better player than Smoove, but Smoove is only making like 10-11 million per year. That's a great value! Sadly Bosh is soon to fall into the category of "really good players who are overpaid". JJ is soon to join that to.

    What is it with American's saying "could care less"? The expression is "couldn't care less"... Could care less makes no sense at all
