Alas, the national cameras were finally on No. 5. (Sure, he got some attention over a couple of spectacular slam dunk contents, but the postseason brings a different caliber of lens.) With Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley’s full attention, how would J-Smooth react? Was he going to force 15-footers like he was prone to do? Would he drive uncontrollably to the hole and lose the ball? Or would he patiently work his defender, shake one way and send the poor chap the other? In the span of 10 minutes, he wound up doing all three. Chris Webber can’t understand that. We do.

SLAM ONLILNE is counting down the top fifty players in the NBA. Josh Smith comes in at number 40.
