Johnny’s high school nemesis AI is going to the Nuggets for Andre Miller (honestly one of the most underrated players in the game), a couple of draft picks, and Joe Smith who, I SWEAR TO GOD I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP, I played against in high school. I am absolutely totally telling the truth. The Sixers, apparenty worried that JGT would head to Denver, made sure to include one of his boys from his eastern Virginia days in the trade, and keep him from getting homesick. “That they would do this for little old me really shows what a commitment this organization has to its fans,” said a relieved ‘Times, who has not yet packed his bags to be with his homie in Denver.
In all honesty, Joe Smith was not really that good in high school (I played him once), he was just really tall and blocked everything that came near the rim. It was pretty shocking that he did so well at Maryland. Of course, in the pros, he is best known for being one of the players involved in every single trade that has occurred in the last 10 years. He has played for every team in the NBA at least once, including the Chicago Zephyrs and the Tri-Cities Blackhawks.
