After Orlando’s Game 5 blowout win, Orlando Sentinel columnist Mike Bianchi called the Hawks “Birdbrains.” Josh Smith apparently read the op-ed — ending an interview session by offering this unprompted remark: “‘We’ve got reporters in here that’s calling guys ‘idiots’ and ‘dummies,’ and I really don’t understand how somebody can challenge somebody’s intelligence when it comes to basketball,” Smith said. “It’s a basketball game. Some people like to take it a little bit too far.’ Smith got up from his chair and left the locker room. And then from the hallway, Smith called Bianchi a name that can’t be reprinted on this blog.”
