Will his career mirror that of:
Ray Lewis, who got in trouble and was in the criminal justice system early in his career, but who straightened up and went on to have a hall of fame career
Aaron Hernandez, who is likely to spend the rest of his life in prison for murder.
Smith hasn't murdered anyone....yet, but according to the lawsuits filed (obviously nothing has yet been proven in a court of law) he was firing a weapon and hit one or more people. Had they died, he might very well have been charged with murder. It's pretty clear that he is, or at least was, associating with a bunch of thug gang-bangers...
If he gets out of this unscathed (or relatively so), will he learn from his mistakes, fly right and prosper? Or not?
