I only thing I watch on ESPN are the games (mostly muted) and this now absolutely assures I won't watch anything else on ESPN except the NBA games.

So just a minor radio host gig and a job writing for ESPN.com...

I can live with that. I just don't want him on TV more than a few minutes a week. That's my tolerance for him.

I'd love to have him back broadcasting.. His backlashing of player was quite amusing.

"is that a trick question? they gave up Kwame Brown, who cares!"

I couldn't stop laughing at that. I don't know why everyone hates him so much. I find him to be pretty brutally honest and funny in the same breath.

I like Stephen A Smith. Hes much better than Wilbon and that other fruit cake John Barry. Legler, Jackson, and Smith are cool in my book.

Chris is linked with LeBrons' camp. That's the source of this, but I do admit it gets annoying after a while, especially after the FA fiasco this past offseason.

I dont understand the hate for the man. I do hate chris sheridan. He never talks about the good in the knicks just how everyone is a trade piece. Plus the guy is terrible in his sources

How could ESPN not bring him back? He was a first guy to broke to Miami Thrice story almost a month before it happened when nobody even gave it a 1% chance. This guys knows what he's talking about. He too honest, says what he feels, and some people like him when he doesn't talk on the favor. You will know some people who don't like him in this thread. You can see a connection between him being right on his prediction and as a result being disliked by some specific groups.

I hate how angry this guy gets
He argues out of passion not intelligence...gives me one more reason not to follow the NBA on espn

I hate Stephen A

hate's an easy word to throw out there. state specific reasons why you hate the guy. because he's black, angry black man symdrome, in your face demeanor, speaks his mind and his opinions don't align with your beliefs, doesn't have any substance? be specific. stating you just hate someone is a cheap, invalid and cop out statement.

I was just about to say I thought they were getting rid of all of the loudmouth douchers when they got rid of Jay, but I guess you beat me to it.

This man is by far the worst analyst I have ever seen in any sports on any TV network. Hands down.

At least Stephen A. is a straight shooter who is not afraid to speak his mind or be "politically correct" all the time....lol he called Kwame Brown a scrub

Stephen is the best Bball guy on ESPN, Broussard is the steve urkel suburban version on Smith.
plus Smith SHUTS SKIP BAYLESS DOWN, and even Skip says he loves the guy

Heís the best player in the game
Itís just that simple
Thereís nothing that Kobe Bryant canít do
He will defend your best player
He will shoot from the perimeter
He will get all in yo mug
He will do whatever it takes
He is the most complete basketball player
In the game today Ė bar none
He has an assassins mentality
I said this weeks, I said this when the trade went down
And I will repeat it again
Whoís starving more for an NBA World Championship
More than Kobe Bryant? There is no one
This guy is Hollywood
What separates Kobe from the pack?
More than Kobe Bryant, there is no one
