Joe Smith’s NBA Tour Makes a Pit Stop in Atlanta

The Hawks become the 10th team to give the veteran Smith a job: “Joe Smith has spent the past month being wooed by the Hawks, and Tuesday night all the team’s hard work paid off. Smith signed a one-year deal Tuesday for the veteran’s minimum salary, approximately $1.3 million, rounding out the team’s frontcourt rotation with the veteran big man they’ve searched for all summer.”

    Apologies to those who are my Facebook friends, since I wrote this last night: I’m assuming we’re going to have a jersey with “Joe Smith” and 1 with “Josh Smith” on the back. “J. Smith” or “Jo. Smith” wouldn’t work with these two Smith’s.

    Joe Johnson and Joe Smith on one team. 2 of the most boring and generic names in the English language. At least we have a Zaza Pachulia to even things out.

    Starting 5: Joe Johnson, Mike Bibby, Marvin Williams, Josh Smith, Horford. Possible 6th man of the year: Jamal Crawford. Rest of the bench: Zaza Pachulia, Joe Smith, Mo Evans, Jeff Teague. Not a bad 10 man rotation at all…

    They should just put “J-Smoove” on Josh’s back.

    There’s no one that can get busy on the block. You can only run so many isos.

    You can easily put two J. Smiths on jerseys because the numbers are different….the organisation should do a package deal whereby you can buy both jerseys together though.
    Two jerseys plus a Dr Pepper for $72.99

    This is the one they could actually want & use reversible jerseys for fans. Joe Joe Jo(sh) the new Toni Tony Toney?

    Dacre, most players who have the same last name and who play on the same team (even with different #’s, obviously) usually get the first initial of their first name sewed on their jersey. In this case, that obviously wouldn’t make a difference. Even the first TWO letters wouldn’t work. I guess this is similar to when the Dallas Cowboys had two guys named Roy Williams on their squad last season.
