Marcus Smart ranked No. 60 overall in the NBA in new Sports Illustrated rankings

USA Today


Article Summary:

Boston Celtics veteran guard Marcus Smart is getting some love denied to teammates Robert Williams III and Al Horford. The Flower Mound native is ranked 60th by SI with Michael Pina relating that “Smart is often recognized as the Celtics’ heart and soul, a feisty, protean guard who shares the psychology of an outside linebacker.”

“If the work is dirty, Smart won’t mind sticking his face in it,” observes the SI analyst, summing up his essence as an NBA player in a sentence quite well.

“Now entering his prime with an outside shot that remains up and down from year to year, Smart’s physical tenacity still endears him to teammates and coaches,” offers Pina, “Even when he’s a bit too overzealous with the jumper.”
