Josh Smith

  1. Greg Monroe: Pistons lacked locker-room chemistry this season

    Apr 17, 2014, 10:44 AM EDT

    Greg Monroe, Serge Ibaka

    Pistons forward: ‘I’ve censored myself’

  2. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Spurs finish season on top

    Apr 14, 2014, 2:14 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan

    Spurs close out the season on top, but can they beat the Thunder in a playoff series? Can the Thunder get through the gauntlet in front of them to get a showdown with the Spurs?

  3. Pistons officially done with Joe Dumars as general manager

    Apr 14, 2014, 12:06 PM EDT

    Joe Dumars

    Dumars will hold new title, but he’s done

  4. Report: Joe Dumars to resign as Pistons general manager

    Apr 8, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Joe Dumars Introduces Josh Smith

    Official word could come very soon

  5. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Spurs set the bar while Pacers fall like a rock

    Apr 7, 2014, 3:13 PM EDT

    Greg Popovich

    The Spurs have solidified themselves atop the NBA — if your team is going to win an NBA title they need to clear that bar because the Spurs aren’t coming back to the pack.

  6. Josh Smith says Detroit disaster not all his fault

    Apr 4, 2014, 5:01 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Josh Smith is right, it’s not his fault Joe Dumars brought him in as part of an ill-fitting lineup to start with.

  7. PBT Power Rankings: Spurs running away at top, but a new team in cellar

    Mar 31, 2014, 1:00 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan

    The Sixers win! The Sixers win! That was enough to move them out of the bottom spot of the PBT Power rankings for a week… which since they are not getting relegated is about the only excitement at the bottom of the table. At the top it is San Antonio then everybody else right now.…

  8. Sixers snap 26-game losing streak with blowout win over Pistons

    Mar 29, 2014, 10:33 PM EDT

    brett brown sixers

    Sixers avoid setting the all-time record for consecutive losses in a season, and remain firmly committed to the rebuilding plan that was set in motion last summer.

  9. Four remaining games the Sixers can win

    Mar 28, 2014, 12:35 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    I don’t think the Philadelphia 76ers are going to go 0-36 to end the season. They are going to get one more win. But when? Most nights they are overmatched — the other team is just more talented. That’s why they lost game 26 in a row Thursday night to the Houston Rockets, 120-98. The…

  10. Monday NBA grades: Tyreke Evans has found the beat in New Orleans

    Mar 25, 2014, 1:55 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Pelicans

    Shhh, don’t tell anyone, but Tyreke Evans has been playing well lately in New Orleans. Also, LeBron James is good at basketball.

  11. PBT Power Rankings: Streaking Spurs on top, streaking Sixers on bottom

    Mar 24, 2014, 1:41 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich, Tony Parker

    San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

  12. Timofey Mozgov’s revenge (sorry, Josh Smith)

    Mar 20, 2014, 12:08 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Timofey Mozgov

    Timofey Mozgov, most famous for getting dunked on by Blake Griffin, can dunk a little bit himself. Just ask Josh Smith. This wasn’t totally Smith’s fault –  who was Greg Monroe defending on that pick-and-roll? – but there’s no coming back from that. Smith was ejected later in the game.

  13. Extra Pass: Are the Detroit Pistons putting a new twist on tanking or being lousy?

    Mar 10, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond, Josh Smith, Maurice Cheeks

    The fewer the minutes for a team’s best players, the more likely teams are to be tanking and vice versa. Except in Detroit.

  14. Josh Smith fantasizes about playing with Rajon Rondo again

    Mar 9, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    Just like old times at Oak Hill Academy?

  15. Report: Joe Dumars, frustrated with criticism, expected to be out as Pistons’ general manager

    Mar 5, 2014, 11:07 AM EDT

    Joe Dumars

    Joe Dumars might not be replaced by Isiah Thomas, but it still seems unlikely Dumars will return next season as the Detroit Pistons’ general manager. Dumars is in the final season of his contract. Ownership superseded him to fire his chosen head coach. And he didn’t make a move at the trade deadline. All signs…

  16. Report: Pistons considering hiring Isiah Thomas as general manager

    Mar 2, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Isiah Thomas

    Isiah Thomas, as general manager of the New York Knicks, built loser after loser, pulverized the team’s cap structure and exposed Madison Square Garden to an eight-digit sexual-harassment lawsuit. Just the man who deserves another chance to run a team. That’s reportedly the logic of Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores, who could be weeks from…

  17. NBA Trade Deadline Tracker: All the trades, rumors, analysis, fun in one place

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

  18. Report: Pistons shopping Josh Smith, want more than expiring contract

    Feb 20, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Brandan Wright

    Two years ago, the Pistons traded Ben Gordon and a first-round pick for Corey Maggette. The players were basically irrelevant, but their contracts were key. Because Maggette’s expired a year sooner, the Pistons got cap space last summer rather than in the upcoming summer. They, of course, used it to sign Josh Smith to a…

  19. Chauncey Billups reportedly undergoing knee surgery

    Feb 19, 2014, 6:51 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups

    What a horrific signing by the Pistons last summer. He’s way overpaid. The Pistons, already a bad team, are worse on both ends of the court when plays. No, not Josh Smith (who’s actually helped the wayward Pistons offensively and defensively). I’m talking about Chauncey Billups. When you give Smith a $54 million contract, your…

  20. Tuesday night NBA grades: LeBron had no All-Star weekend hangover

    Feb 19, 2014, 2:29 AM EDT

    Heat Mavericks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while listening to Sir David Attenborough narrate curling for the BBC as if it were Planet Earth…. LeBron James, Miami Heat. A lot of us — players and some of the media (myself included, damn Sazerac) — have been fighting off a post New Orleans…

  21. Lionel Hollins says he hasn’t spoken with Pistons, is interested in job

    Feb 12, 2014, 7:46 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    When the Detroit Pistons fired Mo Cheeks as coach, a lot of eyes turned to Lionel Hollins. He had coached a somewhat similar roster in Memphis (great front line, not much outside shooting) all the way to the conference finals twice, plus he was the kind of disciplinarian the Pistons ownership feels the team needs.…

  22. Josh Smith leads the break, takes it to the rim, throws it down hard (VIDEO)

    Feb 10, 2014, 11:46 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Detroit Pistons

    Josh Smith can do eye-popping things. Sometimes lost in the rolling of eyes over his love of jump shots from beyond 18 feet is the fact Smith can be a beast. He has handles, strength, defend and much more. Against the San Antonio Spurs Monday Smith led the break, then finished it with authority. He…

  23. Report: Don’t expect a Greg Monroe trade (unless it’s a blockbuster)

    Feb 10, 2014, 10:07 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Washington Wizards

    Greg Monroe is going to be the name at the heart of a lot of trade rumors the next 10 days. The reason is this: Monroe is a restricted free agent this summer, the Pistons have three more years of Josh Smith at $12 million a year, and coming soon they are going to have…

  24. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder stay on top, Bucks stay on bottom

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…
