A fantastic piece of news from the Hawks' brilliant Jon Steinberg:
"Ha. Both guys will just have Smith on their backs! No first initials, etc."
— The Josh/Joe Smith Jersey intrigue is officially solved.
Henry Abbott of TrueHoop is elated over the news. I have never disagreed with him any more on anything than I do right now about this. Legitimately, my hear is aching. We might need to cut the list of reasons to be excited down to sixty reasons. If you need me, I will crying in my bathroom.
Just found out from the Hawks PR when I complained on twitter that a full name is not allowed on the back of a jersey. I feel a little better.
