Josh Smith Will Be Detroit Pistons’ Mvp For 2013-14 Season

Shep Smith Leaving 7 P.M. Hour, Will Oversee Fox News’ Breaking News Team

show is eliminated. “We don’t have to wait till 7 anymore,” said Smith, named managing editor of the breaking news unit. “When it’s ready, we’ll put it on the air. When it’s breaking, I’m ready to do it.” Bing: Elisabeth Hasselbeck heads to FOX News FOX News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes described Smith’s new role as a quarterback able to call an audible when news is happening and get it on the air quickly. Except for Smith’s show and Bret Baier’s Washington report, FOX’s evening schedule is driven by opinionated, personality-driven programming. FOX is building a new studio, calling it the FOX News Deck, for Smith to operate. The changes are likely to take place in October. “This is the way news should be presented in today’s world with the equipment and the amount of technology that is available,” Ailes said. “We’re making a major investment in journalism here and it’s going to require journalists to be better.” The changes are among several taking place at FOX, the top-rated cable news network and the one with the most personnel stability. This summer, FOX said that Megyn Kelly would move into the network’s prime-time lineup when she returns from maternity leave, but hasn’t said where she will go and who she will displace. Ailes would not comment on published reports that Sean Hannity would move to 7 p.m.

Brandon Jennings will be the runner-up in the MVP voting to Smith while Andre Drummond, still a kid at age 20, will come in third. It could be a close vote between Smith and Jennings; but in the end, Smith will prove how valuable of a pickup he was for the Pistons. Jennings will also prove his worth, but Smith will especially carry the load in making the Pistons strong playoff contenders. Drummonds time will come, but his MVP award will have to wait for another season. The key for Smith will be working with Drummond and Greg Monroe so that each player has enough room inside to do his work. Smith was up in just about every category with his 2012-13 performance compared to his career marks. He averaged 35.3 minutes, 17.5 points, 8.4 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game, and shot 46. 5 percent from the floor. His career marks are 34.1 minutes, 15.3 points, 8.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists a game. His 3-point shooting last season of 30.3 percent was higher than his 28.3 percent career mark. His career free throw accuracy is 65.4 percent, but thats higher than his 51.7 shooting accuracy in foul shots last season. It may take a while for Smith to adjust to his new surroundings, but once he does adjust, hes on his way to being team MVP.

Will Smith might do two ‘Independence Day’ sequels, after all

Will Smith might do two ‘Independence Day’ sequels, after all Mike Bertha Posted: Friday, September 6, 2013, 10:23 AM After tricking $60 million-worth of American moviegoers into forking over their hard-earned money to see that M. Night Shyamalan abomination, After Earth, it appears that Will Smith might end up doing two Independence Day sequels, after all. Previously, director Roland Emmerich was quoted as saying that Smith was “too expensive” to reprise his role as Captain Steve Hiller. But, with After Earth and the whole passing on Django Unchained thing on everyone’s mind, it appears that it might be a little too early to count Smith out of ID Forever Part I and ID Forever Part II. The German director, whose latest action movie White House Down makes explicit reference to Independence Day’s destruction of the presidential building, said: “I sometimes say no, Will Smith will not be in it because he didn’t want to do it at first. Now we have a meeting planned, we want to talk about it again. Anything can happen.” Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum have already confirmed their return for the sequel because they’re true American heroes and/or had nothing better to do. (Insert Law & Order appearance joke here.) The speculation is good news, but Smith himself has previously suggested that you shouldn’t get your hopes up about seeing him in summer blockbuster/alien adventure movies because he plans to vere off of that path. iiiSpeaking exclusively to Digital Spy about After Earth, Smith said: “It’s been an absolute necessity that the movie be a blockbuster, but I think I’m going to start moving out of that and finding more danger in my artistic choices.” In case you were wondering, IMDB already lists I, Robot 2, Hancock 2, and Bad Boys 3 as “announced” on Smith’s personal page . Robot movie sequel. Super hero movie sequel. Buddy cop movie sequel.
