MUST WATCH: Montage Of Stephen A. Smith Incorrectly Picking 6 NBA Champions
Jake ODonnell 09:15 am, June 21st, 2016
The outcome of the NBA Finals has always been the easiest to predict of all the major professional sports championships, but the last six years have been uniquely tough. Think about it -- in the 90s, it was pretty damn obvious the Bulls were the best team in basketball (or Houston when M.J. wasn't around). In the 00s, the Lakers were unstoppable and the Eastern Conference was awful. But since 2010, when LeBron James joined the Miami Heat, picking the winner of any given Finals series has been admittedly trickier.
That being said, how Stephen A. Smith has managed to get it wrong every time is pretty damn special.
An Australian betting site has put together a montage of the "First Take" host -- who is now working alone after his buddy Skip bounced for FS1 on Monday -- making incorrect predictions in each of the last six seasons. Apparently the volume of your voice is not correlated to your ability to see into the future (or your understanding of basketball). Good to know.
