Stephen A. Smith


The Knicks Are So Bad They Got The ‘First Take’ Guys To Stop Arguing — And That Was BEFORE Last Night’s Loss To The Pistons

stephen a smith first takeUsually, the tandem of Stephen A. Smith and Skip “Chicken & Broccoli” Bayless is the most insufferable part of the ESPN news cycle. But leave it to the Knicks to help these guys put together what is probably the most watchable “First Take” segment of all time.

Stephen A. Smith Says ‘Ain’t No Way In Hell’ Carmelo Anthony Is Staying In New York, A Mere Eight Months Before Free Agency

Ah yes. It’s a little over a month into the season, the Knicks are only three games back of the Atlantic Division lead (and thus a top-4 playoff spot), we have eight months until free agency begins — but Carmelo Anthony is definitely leaving New York.


Stephen A. Smith Drops Yet Another N-Bomb On Skip Bayless On ESPN’s First Take

It’s not 100% clear that he says it, but it’s obvious that he was trying to say it. You’d think, what with all the radio and live TV he does, he’d learn to not say the single most contentious word in the English language. Nope. Repeat offender. Both vids after the jump…


Two Very Different People Think LeBron Will Consider Signing With The Knicks In 2014

Time to crank that rumor mill! LeBron James has seen fantastic success with the Miami Heat in his three seasons with the team, winning two NBA titles, two MVP awards and the respect and adulation of many who now consider him the player we always thought he could be. So, perfect time to throw a wrench into all that and head to New York, right?

It pays to be Stephen A. — slideshow(!), after the jump.


Here Is Stephen A. Smith In A Star-Trek-Into-Darkness-Themed ESPN Commercial. Or The Other Way Around?

We may not be the biggest Stephen A. Smith fans in the world (does he have fans? would this help them?), but we may in fact be the biggest fans of ESPN commercials. They are consistently fantastic. And for all of Stephen A. Smith’s flaws, he may in fact be a good actor. In fact, the fact may in fact be that he is a legendary actor trolling us all. I subscribe to this belief, halfheartedly.

Richard Sherman Tells Skip Bayless He’s “Better At Life” Than Him On First Take

It’s not often you find that Stephen A. Smith is the least insufferable person in a room with at least three people (I seriously kid, love ya Stephen A.), but alas, that’s what Richard Sherman and Skip Bayless did on First Take Thursday afternoon. Sherman laid a verbal smackdown Bayless, and you’ll wind up never having loved First Take more. Watch what went down.


Stephen A. Smith Stops By Saturday Night Live To Talk Lakers/Friendship

The Los Angeles Lakers are in disarray heading into All Star Weekend. Luckily, Stephen A. Smith stopped by the Saturday Night Live “Weekend Update” desk to diagnose their problems based on his uncomfortably close friendships with each of the team’s star players.


Stephen A. Smith Hated The Super Bowl Blackout More Than You Did

It doesn’t take much to rile up Stephen A. Smith nowadays, or any days, but the Super Bowl blackout had him fuming. Now I’m sure many of us, especially Ravens fans, felt that Baltimore was jipped out of some valuable momentum after starting the second half with a rollicking kick-return touchdown courtesy of Jacoby Jones.
