Holdahl: Going To The Zoo With Craig Smith

13
Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com went to the zoo with Portland Trail Blazers forward Craig "The Rhino" Smith, where he met an African black rhino named Zuri. ------------------------- Craig and Zuri do have quite a few similarities, despite the latter outweighing the former by roughly a ton. It's the reason why Smith has ran with the "Rhino" nickname with a fervor rarely seen outside of professional wrestling. "It's a jungle out there, you know?" said Smith. "It's kind of like survival of the fittest. In a sense, it's the same thing as playing basketball. I embrace the rhino because when someone tries to get the ball or take it away from me, I get real defensive. I try to protect the basketball and my teammates as well. In that sense, it's being a beast in the jungle, one of the rare few. And being able to survive out there, because it's dangerous." ------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
