Stephen A. Smith Tooting His Own Reporter Horn
Stephen A. Smith is the NSA of NBA locker room chatter. He is the fly on the wall. The ears on the street. You see that homeless lady over there, inconspicuously pushing her shopping cart down the street? That's Stephen A. Smith in disguise. He hides in laundry bins and meets with equipment managers in parking garages. If he were a superhero, he'd be called "Scoop" and he'd be omniscient and his costume would be a giant sign that says "I'm important." Skip Bayless would be his Robin. (Skip's costume would be Chris O'Donnell's outfit from the George Clooney Batman movie, though.)
"Imma brag. Ain't a locker room in the NBA that I don't have people," Smith said, most likely referring to the orphans he adopts, then leaves in the crawlspaces around NBA arenas for surveillance purposes.
We'd also venture a guess Smith also has inside guys at the thesaurus factory, who relay 50% of his verbiage through a small earpiece during all his televised appearances. The dude looooooooves listing synonyms. Loves it. Admires it. Beloveds it. Endearments it.
Some context for the video below: First Take was discussing the (reported) chipper atmosphere in Washington's locker room after their Monday night loss to the Seahawks. Smith was laying out his "rules and regulations" for reporting on conversations and behaviors exhibited in places like the showers, which he deemed off limits. "I don't care about your personal business," he shouted in the general direction of Braylon Edwards.
Ahem. Stephen A. Smith knows everything, even if he doesn't report it.
