F*** Josh Smith and the Hawks!

Yes, I said it. 

Not just because of the ridiculous and insulting dunk attempt, in which by the way, he failed to finish. Their whole attitude is not only an insult towards the Miami Heat, but towards this league. What have they accomplished? They are a mediocre team that never wins anything. One good game and they act like total assholes? Is this the message the NBA wants to send to fans out there watching games? Obviously not. Stern was in the crowd and I'm sure he was not pleased with what he saw. 

Josh Smith is obviously a mediocre athlete who is only good for highlight reels (*corrected in comments below, not a mediocre athlete but a mediocre basketball player). This is his chance to become a leader, but he ruins it with childish and immature behavior. Not only that, but will that guy ever admit to commiting a foul? I know most NBA players act surprised when they're called for a foul, but guy is ridiculous. "What do you mean, ref? I just punched Dwyane Wade in the stomach. Is that a foul?"

Dwyane had a bad game and so did the Heat, but as it has happened before, they bounce back as they get angry. Let's hope they are angry and ready to play hard at home on Friday. We still have a chance at this and even though the Hawks are a hard team to beat, I don't think players with that kind of attitude are destined to be winners. I will give all the deserved credit to guys to Mike Woodson, Zaza Pachulia and Flip Murray. They are hard working competitive players. I hope they become a role model to others in their team.

Check your tape: Smith actually did put his hand up (and nod) to admit a foul in the third quarter, when (I think) O'Neal started to dribble past him and Smith swiped at him. No, it doesn't happen often, but it did happen last night.

F*** you and your Heat. Funny you should talk about Smith complaining about fouls. Ever seen Wade play? Only good thing the heat have is their Cheerleaders....God bless 'em. Smith was just trying to give the fans something to cheer about since the heat didn't show up to play.

"Josh Smith is obviously a mediocre athlete who is only good for highlight reels."

Do you know what mediocre means? You just contradicted yourself. If you watched game 1 or 5 in particular, you should know that Smith is - while obviously not the classiest or most intelligent player - an unbelievable athlete.

It makes no sense to say that Smith is a mediocre athlete who is only good for highlight reels. If you are a mediocre athlete (which would infer inferior speed, jumping ability, and quickness) then you would never be on a highlight reel. Mediocre basketball player would make sense maybe. But what you essentially just wrote was that Smith was a good dunker, but he can't jump or run. I frustration with the loss has thrown you off your basketball knowledge.

Get serious. I love the mystery "back spasms" of DWade, being helped up from the bench like he's crippled, then driving the lane moments later.

Your star has no heart. Just excuses.

I have been waiting since the 2006 championship series to relish in a Miami arse whipping. In the aforementioned championship series, Dwayne Wade. your precious superstar got away with flopping more than Vladi Divac ever thought of flopping so the old expression 'what goes around comes around' seems appropriate. Deal with it. You guys have a one dimensional team that is being exposed.

Wow..this sounds like it was written by a 12 year old kid sitting at his computer in his Miami Heat pajamas. I hate the NBA in general..but to call Josh Smith a mediocre athlete is hilarious. His left testicle has more athletic ability than your entire body. Nobody gives a shit who you give credit to, and this is what is wrong with blogs. Go say Fuck you to Josh Smith in person, and I might actually give you some credit. If not, shut the fuck up pussy, pay your money to watch the game..and quit being bitter because your life sucks.

"Josh Smith is obviously a mediocre athlete"

Smith is an elite athlete.

I agree with everyone else that you are retarded. Josh Smith is only a mediocre athlete? Are you serious? Think about that for a second...Josh Smith is one of the best leapers in the game and you're calling him mediocre? I personally don't like the guy because he's really hurting the Heat right now but to say he's a mediocre athlete is just asinine. Did you not see him easily drive by Haslem and jump over O'Neal and slam it down...he did it in like 2 seconds. I'd like to see a mediocre athlete like say Haslem try and do that.

lol to Greg.

The left testicle comment was a classic. The guy who wrote this article is a joke just like the heat. Again, the only thing watching about the heat are the cheerleaders

I assume "they" would be the Hawks, and if so,"they" are leading the series 3-2 dipshit.

So you're saying "they" had one good game and still have 3 wins in the series, the Heat must really blow.

Obviously this guy is an idiot. He contradicts himself like 4 times in the article and seemingly has no idea what he's talking about. Wade didn't even have the bad of a game. 9-19 isn't bad at all and he got to the foul line 13 times, its just the rest of our team who sucked. You need to actually watch the game and have a little knowledge on the subject matter to write a ridiculous article like this one.

If he's mediocre what is he doing in the NBA?

And I liked Dwayne Wade 'til i saw his "back spasm" where his teammates helped him stand up off the bench.. that was pretty weak. Sad to see a great player make excuses. Accept having a bad game without an excuse DWade, Chris Paul did.. and he's a great player.

This is the most retarded thing I have ever read in my life. Talk about homer. Who gave this idiot the right to write anything, ever. Josh Smith is probably the best athlete in the NBA next to his majesty. When dumbass here was writing this he obviously searched for atonym instead of synonym to excellent. The dunk attempt may have not been appropriate, but the hawks are way better than the heat and dwade whines as much or more than smith. Think about what people would be saying about the dunk if he had made it. I loved that he tried it. The NBA needs more extement in it's games. and the last 50 seconds of the game should not take 20 minutes of real time. One last time I want to express that this guy is a retarded homer who should never be allowed to write anything, ever.

The 2006 Finals will go down as one of the most egregious abuses of the whistles I've ever seen, exclusively in the Heat's favor, and you think Josh Smith lobbies the refs?
April 30, 2009 | Unregistered Commenter11825code6
I have to correct myself when I'm wrong, and I made a mistake while writing an angry post.

I did not mean Josh Smith is mediocre in terms of athletic ability, but that he is a mediocre basketball player. He is freakishly athletic, but he should learn to behave during a game and be a leader.

I stand by that opinion because I think being in the NBA is not only about physical skills but also behavior during a game and actions towards other players.

Honestly speaking you guess are just ignorant fools. For one Dwayne Wade has alot of heart(F.Y.I. not a heat fan). he is one of the best athletes in the game for his position right now and you all know it like him or not. Two back spasms are a tricky thing you can feel good one moment and cross someone over and then the next moment you try and do the same thing it gets you. Iam speaking from experience here. Another thing is calling Smith a mediocre athlete is so contradictory. How can someone be an athlete and yet be mediocre, for one if you look in the distionary nowhere does it say that an athlete is mediocre. that statement shows that you are a sore loser, and a Heat fan. You cant blame him for what he does best, its like telling Kobe not to do what he does best, or Lebron for making unbelievable dunks and moves. Think before you open your mouth and type it down becuase alot of the time when you dont think you speak vomit..

The Heat Daily comments about Josh Smith is ultimately wrong about him. You can't say that Josh Smith argues every call made by ref while your own player does it for every whistle blown. I have yet to see Wade accept any call against him or when he doesn't get a call. He is the biggest cry baby I've seen. I've lost a lot of respect for him this entire series with his fake injuries during each game. The only injury that was legit was when he bumped his head, but I'm surprised he didn't act he just received brain damage. Josh Smith is one of the most versatile players in the NBA who can probably be a player who earns a Quad-Double with points, assists, rebounds, and blocks. He can also enter his name in the steal department a few times as well. He is a factor in each game. Fortunately I have the opportunity to watch him every night while this page on Josh Smith was by somebody who just got a glimpse of him during this series between the Heat and the Hawks. He can prevent points, and he can earn points. His shot may be a little off, but he can hit the three at crucial points of the game like I've seen him do it in the regular season. There is no way Josh Smith is on a mediocre level. The entire Heat post was completely bias so I can be bias as well with a legit stand point.
