A Levelheaded Approach to the Josh Smith Situation

On Monday, a story broke that Detroit Pistons team president Stan Van Gundy reportedly told forward Josh Smith that he is unlikely to be traded “barring an unexpected turn of events.” Despite this news not really meaning anything (does any decent trade offer constitute an “unexpected turn of events”?), it seemed to generate more of a reaction from the Pistons’ fan base...
