No Love Lost Between Josh Smith And Hawks Fans

Josh Smith is an Atlanta-area native who played for the Hawks for nine seasons, but Hawks fans seem as overjoyed to be rid of Smith as Smith is to be rid of them.

Josh Smith Has Been So, So, So, So Bad This Year

Kobe Dunks Like Kobe Hasn't Dunked In Years, And The Lakers Are At .500

After a stirring one-point win over the Hawks last night, the Lakers find themselves in a place they haven't been since Dec. 28: at .500. This means you can no longer objectively call them a bad team. You could call them an average team, but they've been on a quiet roll for more than a month. » 3/04/13 8:55am 3/04/13 8:55am

Jameer Nelson Did Not Use His Free Nosebleed Seats For The Hawks-Bulls…

Back in April, the Chicago Bulls held off the Magic 102-99 after a Jameer Nelson three-pointer came too late.
