Has anyone seen the workout video for Dennis Smith Jr? He has the most blockable shot I've ever seen, how have I never noticed that before?


The hitch is so bad, its like he trying to charm a snake with that right hand. Palm ball too LOL

First thing I noticed it’s like he pauses with it it’s just really odd

Wow, that is awful.

I was ready to counter with "worse than Marion shooting from his chest?", but no, Smith's shot is absolutely worse. Super slow gather, no lift, shoots from right in front of his face. I can see why he shot 22% from 3 in his last season.

Actually, he didn't look half bad to me other than the fact that he has ZERO lift on his shots. That hitch is weird but that didn't bother me as much as everything looked like a set shot from his feet. He is going to get a bunch of shots blocked shooting like that.

I'm for giving anybody a look-see but Monty needs a third point guard he will play.

Maybe there will be better options if the Suns use the MLE, via trade or when buyouts come around.

I actually like that he's improved his outside shooting, he's athletic can block shots etc. Not a great player not as good as Porter was but Otto's feet are a real issue they just couldn't afford to pay him what he wanted.

Green is a good signing. I almost wrote... and the rich get richer.

After Amber and Johnny, I am reserving judgment until the entire story comes out.

Have you seen the photos of his wife? They're disturbing to say the least. It's obvious that a grown man beat her and there is no excuse for that.

It also gives Harden another 23 million guaranteed.

If he continues his current rate of decline there is no way he would nab 23 million next year.
