Keith Smart is a former college and pro basketball player, and he showed on Wednesday that he still has the moves. Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry tried throwing a pass to teammate Jarrett Jack, but it was way off the mark. The ball looked like it was going to head into the first row and hit a young boy wearing a Warriors jersey and jacket who was sitting courtside. Luckily the Sacramento coach slid in to grab the ball, and then he asked the youngster for a five. Maybe it was good karma from the save that led the Kings to win the game 105-98.

Golden State Warriors: Jarrett Jack for Sixth Man Of The Year

A few weeks ago, I personally wrote that Jarrett Jack, of the Golden State Warriors, is firmly in second place for the Sixth Man of the Year Award and that no one could reach Jamal Crawford this year. However, for once, I am admitting that I was wrong and that Jarrett Jack should be this year’s top backup. He brings much more to the table and other than scoring, Jack has far superior...
