MILWAUKEE In a town with "nothing to do," Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith says he did nothing in his first night in Milwaukee.

On Thursday, Smith joked in Atlanta he would "just be happy to find a restaurant" in Milwaukee. When a reporter asked if he'd ever vacation there, Smith replied, "Would you go? Everybody knows there ain't nothing to do in Milwaukee."

The Hawks arrived in town Friday night leading 2-0 before Saturday's Game 3. Smith promised in the locker room before the game he'll venture out on Sunday and was thinking about going to a recently built outdoor mall.

Fans in the Bradley Center were already yelling for Smith and he said he's prepared for the reaction. http://www.usatoday.com/sports/basketball/nba/2010-04-24-2031072507_x.htm

Would anyone ever vacation to Atlanta? Atlanta is just the connecting point for the airlines of America, no one actually stays there.

i live about an hour from milwaukee and i'll agree with your post to an extent. sure not many people say let's take a vacation to milwaukee. the most any visitor should/could stay is a long weekend or something. but i'm pretty sure no one would wanna vacation to atlanta either.

i've been to chicago, D.C., NYC, Boston, Orlando, and San Francisco. with that said there's only a couple other places id still wanna go to such as LA, St. Louis, Dallas/San Antonio, Miami, Philly, and Seattle...BUT im not in a hurry to visit Atlanta either.

I don't get why josh smith is complaining about it. what's he trying to prove. and why does he say it now instead of in the regular season...

Why is everyone ripping on other cities... do they think the fans are ********? Like we know which city is good and which city is crap. The players don't need to tell us....

whats up with everyone dissing the city they are playing a game at. besides, its probably better that the player feels there is nothing to do, just more time to prepare for the next game.

You're 30 and you still talk like that?

I agree with you, though.

I think every city can be depending on where you go. I visited LA for a week recently and thought it was a piece of ****. I would never ever even consider thinking about maybe contemplating living there. But I'm sure a ton of people love it, it's just what you like.

As for Atlanta, again it depends on where you go. Atlanta is like the 46th largest city in America but metro Atlanta is like 4th. If you went to Buckhead and/or the Emory area you'll never get bored regardless of age.

talks crap about a city then goes out shooting 20% and helps his team loose by 20 to the team that plays in that city, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! thats what he gets!

Milwaukee is not great, but it's a solid blue collar city, unless he goes sight seeing and goes 2 different events, most mid to big cities have the same thing. Since he seems like a guy who just parties all the time and doesn't do much sight seeing like being in NY or LA, then nothings to much different other than that and weather.

ClayMatthews
04-24-2010, 11:51 PM
If he wasnt so busy trying to find something to do maybe he would of remembered to show up to game three. It looked like the two teams flipp flopped on how they were playing.

i dont see how saying a city isnt very excting is SO bad. all he said was that there was nothing there for him to do...its getting blown outta proportion. And this is completely diff from noah, he just flat out said cleveland sucked

04-25-2010, 12:11 AM
Why would anyone WANT to be like Noah :facepalm:

Cause he's a good player... and I just lost a ton of respect for you for using facepalm emote.

As for Smith, he's a poser.

I also don't understand why people are so insulted by this. So a player doesn't like a city, big ****ing whoop.

Milwaukee isnt so bad. Id rather fo there than LA. But there are better places to go in Wisconsin.

BTW, if youre OK with where you live and there isnt a lot of tourism there, youre better off. A lot of tourists can be really annoying.

Josh needs to hit some of the hotspots like the cheesemaking expo. Actually, seeing the way Atlanta came out for game 3, I think the whole team may have had a bit too much cheese in their pregame snack.
