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

  • Joe Levine

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.

Smith knows these Lakers better than anyone. He’s friends with Kobe Bryant, he’s shared a hot air balloon ride with Steve Nash, he’s ridden Vespas with Pau Gasol, and he was present for Dwight Howard’s first sexual experience. That’s why Stephen A., and only Stephen A., is qualified to point these Lakers in the right direction as they head into the second half of the season.
