    If Kobe stated that Smush was the worst player in the NBA, I can state that he is the worst American I ever saw in EX-Yugoslavia countries. He is so funny, and walks and looks funny. Whoever sold him to Lakers is the agent of the century!!!!

    THis is type of player who only was noticed because he played with Kobe. My grandpa would look better like Parker or Vujcic if he played in LA.
