Stephen A Smith loves to let everyone know who his friends are, you know DWade, Gabrielle Union, Floyd Mayweather, Carmelo Anthony, etc….
I recall Smith talking about how he knows DWade and his mother and how close he is with the fam. It got to the point where he had to mention on ‘First Take‘ how Gabrielle Union sent him a text to set the record straight.
Well, he may have taken it too far this time….
Recently Smith talked about how he had heard from sources that if Kevin Durant was to leave the Oklahoma Thunder that he would not head home to DC and the Washington Wizards. Instead Durant would head west to the Lakers.
Wow… Kobe and KD in L.A.???
Well, if that was the case it seems like someone forgot to tell KD
“I don’t talk to Stephen A. Smith at all,” Durant told reporters. “Nobody in my family, my friends — they don’t talk to Stephen A Smith. So he’s lying.”
“If you ask me a question, I’ll talk about them,” Durant said. “But like I said before, I have people who I talk to about everything, and I know for a fact they didn’t talk to him, so he’s making up stories.”
In an attempt to save face, Smith responded by saying that he never said he spoke to Durant or his family and friends. And that he has plenty of other sources in the NBA that he gets his info from.
That’s all good, but Smith is missing KD’s point.
Durant is saying that if you haven’t spoken to him or his inner circle about his future than any other source you have is wrong. That’s it plain and simple, end of story.
Stephen A Smith, better watch himself as it seems that KD doesn’t have much patience for all the free-agency talk.
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
