“The thing about it is, you have to climb up,” Smith told ESPN.com on Saturday after practice. “If I’m No. 32, by this time next year or the year after, I expect to be in the top 5.”
“My first reaction was, ‘You know, man, I’ve got to prove them wrong,’ ” Smith said. “In the end, none of that matters. My key job is to make sure this team is improving and I’m doing everything I can for the betterment of this team.”
