Smits gets his due

Props to Bill Simmons for his dead on analysis of the career of Pacer great Rik Smits. Rik was deadly from the baseline with the jumper, and he and Ewing used to just go down and trade 18 footers with each other. Rik’s career started slow, but he really was a great player. He’s probably the best player over 7’3 in history.
