Kenny 'The Jet' Smith weighs in on the Wizards' rebuild with Grant & Danny (and 'Chuck')


You’ve heard Danny do his impression of Charles Barkley…well, get ready to hear more, because Chuck’s Inside the NBA partner, Kenny “The Jet” Smith joined Grant & Danny live on a football Thursday from Rudy’s in Alexandria!

“I remember that, and you did a great job!” Smith said when Danny reminded him of his appearance as Chuck on Inside the NBA. “It’s an inflection on certain words, and if you close your eyes, it’s great! It’s not really what you’re saying, it’s that extra inflection and timing. Good job brother!”

Danny then explained doing Young Chuck in commercials, but in reality, The Jet jumped on because the Wizards are now 2-0 in the preseason after a 25-point win over the Knicks at MSG Wednesday night that saw Jordan Poole drop 40 – but don’t expect these big wins during the season, he says, because the focus this year is figuring things out.

“I think the one thing that you’re going to try to figure out is who will be there when it’s said and done – this is that year,” Smith said. “Is Poole going to be the guy? Is Kyle Kuzma going to be the guy and we need one more with them? That’s what the expectation is when you call it a rebuild, because what you’re finding out who are your remaining assets when you clear the dust clears.”

Take a listen above to The Jet’s entire call-in, which also includes thoughts on James Harden and his latest issues, the top contenders in the East, and more!
