    Greg Smith appreciation thread next? Sad news. I like the big gummy bear and what he brings to the game offensively, but he seems like an obvious cut now if the Rockets want to add a player.

    Only wish he could have done this sooner.

    Good luck Greg.

    Every time Greg went down with an injury he was having an amazing game.

    AKS is another way of saying knee scope. Minor, not major. Should help him recover faster and be available this year.

    Thank god we didn't trade Asik.

    Hope he gets back to his form last year soon. He's still very young.

    I feel bad for him. He is a great guy, and he always plays hard whenever he gets the chance.
    Hope he can come back strong for us.

    I liked Greg Smith better when he was calling himself Darryl Sharpton.

    Wow, sucks. I know opinions are mixed on the guy but he was a young guy figuring it out and it really sucks to have him sidelined like this.

    He probably waited because he was trying to rehab it knowing the team would likely cut him if he had to have season ending surgery.
