1985 – Happy 27th birthday to Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith (@JSmooveNBA) who is in his ninth NBA season. He is one of the most talented players in the NBA, but surprisingly has not been selected to an All-Star Game or All-NBA first team in his career. Smith won the 2005 Slam Dunk Contest and is also one of the best in the league at shot blocking.
