Is Marcus Smart a future star?

Tuesday night was supposed to be all about the big names: Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, and Julius Randle were playing on the same night for the second of five times this season. Marcus Smart, however, had other ideas in a 101-80 victory over Memphis. The Oklahoma State sophomore scored 39 points in the game, shot 11-of-21 from the floor, and hit five three-pointers. Smart's talents impressed Kevin Durant, who attended the game on a night off from putting up similar numbers for the Thunder. Durant thinks Smart could play in the NBA right now, which is high praise from one of the NBA's finest scorers.

  • Kevin Durant said Marcus Smart could play in the NBA right now. Would Smart be a starting-quality player if he were already in the NBA?
