I like Smith in this one. I think his size and speed would be a big advantage for him.

None. He would be in the post making hooks and dunking.

Smith is a great defender who can guard any position. He would beat Billups.

Strong words from HD... You like Josh Smith that much or you just lookin at the size/athleticism mismatch?

This is a mismatch at its finest.

How will Billups get his points? He can't post Smith which is one of his strongest assets for a guard, Smith is just too big, he won't get bullied to the paint like other guards. He can try and blow by Smith but chances are he'll get blocked 2 out of 3 times if he goes for a layup or have to change the shot mid-air. He may pullup for a few baskets but Smith's length will make it tough to get a clean basket unless he fools Smoove into defending the drive. I can see him knocking a few beyond the 3pt line, some pullup Js but that is all.

I guess, yeah, Smith's size and athleticism give him a huge edge here. This is a complete mismatch for Billups.
