Editor: I support and endorse, without qualification, Joseph Smith, candidate for the Havre de Grace City Council. I like what he wrote in the following statement: One primary theme that I am stressing during this campaign is that people in Bulle Rock moved here because we feel a strong connection to the community and want to be here. We want to be considered a part of the community, regardless of where we are from or how long we've lived here. We offer much in terms of diversity, experiences, skills and interests.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. Of the Maryland players drafted in the NBA between Joe Smith in 1995 and Alex Len in 2013, whose career has been the most surprising and whose has been the most disappointing? Don Markus: There have been more than a dozen former Terps to have played in the NBA in the past 18 years, and only one - Steve Francis - has been an all-star.

Joe Smith's next significant court date was supposed to be Nov. 1, when the former University of Maryland All-American is scheduled to begin his second NBA season as a member of the Golden State Warriors. Instead, it will come Monday -- in a Chesapeake, Va., courtroom.Smith is expected to appear there in General District Court for a preliminary hearing after being charged with malicious wounding, a Class 3 felony offense. The charge stems from a July 26 brawl allegedly involving Smith and a male dancer at a local club.

Orioles closer Jim Johnson hadn't blown a save in exactly a month, had converted 12 consecutive save opportunities and had allowed just one run in his previous 14 outings before he took the ball with a one-run lead in the ninth Wednesday. His rough stretch in May seemed to be becoming a distant memory. All that goodwill, though, disappeared quickly on Wednesday night when Johnson started the ninth with a four-pitch walk, allowed a double on his fifth pitch and then allowed successive RBI groundouts in a 4-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians that spoiled a potential Orioles' comeback and a strong outing by starter Jason Hammel.

It was an ordinary early season NBA game and Joe Smith was, indeed, an ordinary Joe. The Maryland alumnus scored five points, shooting just 2-for-12 from the field, in the Detroit Pistons' 103-93 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Dec. 1. The Pistons probably could have invited anyone named Joe Smith down from The Palace of Auburn Hills crowd and gotten similar production. Any one of the 32 Joe Smiths in attendance, that is. Dec. 1 had been declared "Joe Smith Night," with anyone named Joe or Smith being admitted for $1 and earning a chance at a free trip to Cancun, Mexico.

Johnny Rhodes has often been overlooked in the discussion of Maryland's greatest all-time players. That is not surprising, since Rhodes rarely got a ton of credit even as he helped the Terps begin their turnaround under Gary Williams during the mid-1990s. As much as Joe Smith and Keith Booth were the most celebrated players by fans and the media, and for good reason, Rhodes was just as respected by his teammates and coaches. Rhodes finished his career in College Park as one of the best all-around players in program history.

How did all this happen at Maryland?How did the Terps run up a 17-4 record and become one of the top 10 basketball teams in the country? They're No. 8 this week.How did Maryland, which was only 8-8 in the Atlantic Coast Conference last year (7-2 now), get to where it is -- facing No. 1 North Carolina at College Park tonight in a game that could tie the Terps for first place in the ACC?The students at Maryland obviously think Joe Smith is the answer.At the Virginia game last week, a banner was unfurled at Cole Field House that said: "On the eighth day God created Joe Smith."

More than 60 percent of black athletes enrolled in predominantly white colleges fail to receive degrees.Sunday was the deadline for underclassmen to declare themselves eligible for the NBA draft.

Baltimore Sun reporter Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. Is Alex Len better off not being the top pick in the 2013 draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers and instead going a few spots down to Charlotte, Phoenix or New Orleans? Don Markus: Being the No. 1 overall pick certainly carries a status that follows a player through an NBA career and could ultimately carry a stigma if things don't go well.

Terrell Stoglin picked up a red pen when he was in first grade, and out poured his vision of future basketball glory on page after page that he stapled together and proudly presented to his parents. "No one can stop him," Terrell wrote about Terrell on lined construction paper, the sort children use to practice the alphabet. "Watch out Michael [Jordan] because this boy is taking over your sport!" Fifteen years later, Maryland's 6-foot guard covets the NBA and plays with audacity — as if he were still running in pickup games through southern Arizona's desert heat, needing feverishly to prove he can outplay the bigger boys.

COLLEGE PARK -- A few people asked Jerome Burney about his choice of jersey numbers when he showed up at Maryland in the fall of 2006. At first, Burney didn't fully understand the fuss because the number (32) was picked randomly. Burney knew the legendary Julius Erving once wore it, but not Joe Smith. One of those who educated Burney about his number was assistant coach Keith Booth, who came in as a freshman as part of the same recruiting class as Smith, the last Maryland player to wear it.

CLEVELAND -- Short-handed, undermanned, inadequate. The Cleveland Cavaliers weren't themselves last night, nowhere close. And it didn't matter. LeBron James was still around. James made two free throws with 7.8 seconds left and scored 33 points as the Cavaliers, playing with just eight one day after a huge trade, had enough to beat the Washington Wizards, 90-89. "As long as I'm on the court, I expect us to win," James said. As they say, it ain't braggin' if you can back it up. Said Cavaliers coach Mike James: "I've said it a million times.

Jarrett Jack drove for a go-ahead basket and converted a three-point play with 19 seconds left in the second overtime last night and the Portland Trail Blazers outlasted the host Chicago Bulls, 115-109, for their 15th win in 16 games. Brandon Roy had 25 points and Travis Outlaw added 21 for Portland, 2-0 since its 13-game winning streak was ended Monday by the Utah Jazz. Ben Gordon scored 32 points to lead the Bulls and veteran Joe Smith (Maryland) added a season-high 31 as Chicago dropped to 3-2 since Jim Boylan was appointed interim coach after the firing of Scott Skiles.
