So apparently, the Hawks offered:

Josh Smith
Devin Harris


Pau Gasol
Chris Duhon

What were the Lakers thinking?!? I would've done that in a heartbeat. You get Josh Smith who definitely is all star caliber AND Devin Harris who let's not forget, was also an all star in the past.

I would have done it for the expirings not the players.

The way people talk about J-Smoove on here he is massively overrated.

Its wrong to judge a player on a few games, I know J Smoove is an all star caliber player but ive noticed

-he forces a lot of stupid shots
-he takes stupid jumpers and 3 pointers he cant make
-he is very undisciplined

yesterday against the Warriors David Lee, who is a solid but not otherworldly defender, completely shut him down, he went 1-12 and finished with 3 points, the Hawks coach had to actually pull him out of the game midway through the 3rd and he never returned. He went with Ivan Johnson instead, a former d-leaguer, who was MUCH more effective than J smoove.

Also I got to see J smoove play in person about a month ago when he played the warriors and I was surprised by how much he stands around, cherry picks and doesn't bring much energy and hustle to his team at all. I was expecting to see him dominate but wasn't impressed at all, especially since that game Horford wasn't even playing, but he didn't step up at all.

If you think about it, the Lakers made a smart decision. They knew if Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard came together, spacing and execution will turn out well. Gasol is a great passer and does well in the post. If the trade was accepted, the Lakers would of had more problems than they already do now. It's hard to adjust when your team has changed more than 70 percent.

When Pau is on, hes one of the best offensive bigs in the league, its a shame hes not at his best often anymore though. If this is true I think LA made a smart decision, Smith would have brought on more chemistry issues than they already have, and I think a Nash/Pau duo will work well in the future.
