Give Smith credit for developing talent

Chuck Hayes

Kentucky coach Tubby Smith is very well respected at the NBA level based on what he did with the Olympic team a few years back. I think his name, what type of coach he is and his style of play is known throughout the league.

I think since he took over from Rick Pitino he did a great job in developing Nazr Mohammed and Jamaal Magloire. Chuck Hayes is in the league right now. Tayshaun Prince is there. Keith Bogans is there. Scott Padgett is there. Kelenna Azubuike just signed last week. Gerald Fitch and Erik Daniels have had a taste in the NBA. So maybe he is doing a better job than what people really give him credit... Recommended Stories
