    That game was so strange, especially considering the fact that Josh Smith and Corey Brewer are both out of the league due their lack of shooting.

    Yes, since before Smoove joined the team around December 2014. Howard and Smith go way back and it's well known to people that track basketball phenoms straight out of high school which is documented in every issue of SLAM magazine back when it was still very popular.

    Idk about now but clearly Harden was not a good leader back then.

    "My basketball IQ is through the roof."

    Not sure Josh Smith was known for his BBIQ...

    Those bits about Harden was eye opening.

    I've always shitted on McHale but he really shined that game by benching Harden. I guarantee we would have lost if we put him back in when Smith and Brewer were torching them.

    Also interesting he said McHale Benching Harden for that quarter probably eventually got him fired. Harden has too much power on management

    McHale is great at motivating players, i think he just failed at having a gameplan. He'd probably work with the right player, like CP3 or Lebron, basically those guys are like coaches on the floor.

    Low key dig at Harden and management and thats okay by me. He really does have too much power, not saying getting rid of milkhair was a bad thing though.

    Also Boozer is a really good host/interviewer. He shares stories in an intimate way and asks good questions. Also he doesnt cuss evey other word. Smoove just waits to speak. I really wanted to know what Nate wrote in his journal.
