Kevin Durant Checks Stephen A Smith

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.”

DAMN!!!!!

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.

 

As always….

If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!

 

Stephen A. Smith’s flawed vote for Republican Theory

 Full Disclosure, I am not a fan of Stephen A Smith so I don’t have many good things to say about this kat. This goes back to him appearing on Larry King’s show around 2009. And I have gotten into a couple of Twitter wars with Smith. At this point I believe he has blocked me, but all well. I hope this gets back to him some way, haha!!!

Stephen A Smith once again caused a stir this week when during a speech he suggested that all Black Americans should at least vote once for Republicans. Smith’s rationale was that the Democratic party has taken the Black vote for granted and that this would force both parties to realize they have to do a better job courting the Black vote.

So my initial reaction to Smith was……

I will say that Stephen A Smith has a valid point about the Democratic party taking the Black vote for granted, but he completely loses me with his suggestion of just voting for Republicans. While a situation where all Black Americans voted for Republicans would be a shock to the system of the Democratic party; why would that motivate the Republican party to court the Black vote?

At that point they (Republicans) get what they want in votes without having to do anything!

But hey, maybe there was something I was missing with Smith’s logic.

Ummmm, nah!!!!

On Michael Smerconish show on CNN, Smith went on to double-down on his logic without a good handle of the facts. Smith clearly states that he puts most of the blame on the Black Community, and barely mentions that the GOP has some work to do on their side.

As I stated earlier there is some validity to Smith saying the Dems take the Black vote for granted. We (Black people) should not blindly give our vote to any party, but at the same time BOTH parties, not only the Dems should give Black people and all voters a reason to vote for them.

If Stephen A Smith wants to convince me that I should not look at the GOP as the enemy then he has to explain to me why the GOP looks as me as the enemy.

When it comes to issues like Voting Rights, Tax cuts, Immigration, Income Inequality, and decreasing the number of uninsured Americans (want to repeal Obamacare with no replacement).

Smith talks about Democrats painting Republicans as bad guys but never speaks on what exactly Dems are wrong about. If Smith wants me and others to take him seriously he has to have a better grasp of the facts and stop demonizing (yes I said demonizing) Black Americans as being the uninformed.

Takeover Thursdays – Stephen A Smith

So once again Stephen A Smith (SAS) opened up his mouth to make himself apart of the conversation.  SAS can’t help but want to be a factor in sports commentary; yesterday on Jim Rome’s show SAS talked about Bron’s mysterious lack of presence in the Game 4 loss to the Mavs.  For whatever reason SAS decided that he will drop a hint that LeBron James horrible Game 4 was more than just Bron having a bad game.

SAS talked about Bron possibly having off the court distractions/issues that may have caused the terrible Game4…..

Ummm, ok!!

SAS, what exactly are those off the court distractions?

When someone makes a comment like that it is only natural for everyone to inquire what those distractions are; BUT as soon as SAS alluded to possible “Distractions” he quickly added that it is none of our business.

WHAT???

How do you sit there and RECKLESSLY throw out statements about LeBron having possible off the court issues during the NBA Finals??

Come on Stephen A Smith, you know better than that.  Terrible job on his part and to me unprofessional… Because of SAS comments the next line of questions from Jim Rome were about LeBron’s mental makeup.

One second SAS is defending Bron’s toughness but then moments later he challenges Bron’s heart, where do you stand SAS?

That is weak on Stephen A Smith part; instead of just simply reporting on the NBA Finals for a quick minute Stephen A Smith is making himself the story.  Now everyone wants to know what does SAS know about LeBron’s off the court life.  On top of that SAS then wants to act innocent and get mad that everyone is hitting him up about his comments; STOP IT!!!!

You got exactly what you wanted Stephen A and that is attention; do us all a favor and just report on the game and stop trying to be the game.

Now You Want to Be Tough on Jeter???

So I wake up this morning and I see that longtime Yankee fan Stephen A Smith, wants to be tough on Derek Jeter.

Really???

Now you wanna be tough on Jeter Stephen A?  Dawg, you’re LATE to the game.  Stephen A is criticizing Jeter for his lack of productivity so far this season; ummmm…. NEWS FLASH Stephen, Derek Jeter is 36 years old!!!  What about last season gave you the idea that Jeter was going to have a productive season in 2011?

I know I know, it’s still early in the season and Jeter could turn this round and I actually think he will.  I don’t believe Jeter will hit .300 but he could be a .275 – .280 hitter.

I guess what pisses me off about all this is that so-called sports reporter Stephen A Smith is trying to come across as being tough on Jeter.  In my opinion Stephen A. is being the ULTIMATE MONDAY MORNING QUARTERBACK!  It’s easy to criticize Jeter right NOW, his numbers are terrible (at least for Derek Jeter standards).  You’re not being “TOUGH” on Jeter your just being “Captain Obvious”.  Anyone watching a Yankee game could have told us that Jeter is struggling.  Stephen A. likes to yell and rant in interviews and on the radio and show he has the biggest mouth in the room.  How about you show us some creativity Stephen A and report something I didn’t already know.

Step ya game up bruh, I am sure ESPN is paying you a lot of money to be a lil more creative with your reporting.

Out of Bounds with Knicks Chick, STAT and Melo….

So you knew it was only a matter of time before Knicks Chick let her thoughts be known about the acquisition of Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups.  Along with her thoughts about the trade she also took a minute to take a couple of shots at a few LOUDMOUTH Radio Sports Talk Show Hosts (Stephen A Smith and Brandon Tierney).  For true Knicks fans like Knicks Chick and myself we tend to become a lil frustrated with idiotic so-called ‘Sports Analyst’ who speak before thinking.  If you follow me on Twitter (@BobbyBroad) you have already seen a couple of my rants against Stephen A Smith; well now Mr Smith has a new critic….

LMAO, I told y’all this she is tough.  Did you peep the shot she took at Shawne Williams?

If you thought that was bad wait until the Knicks sign Jared Jeffries aka Mr Indiana Basketball!!!!

P.S. Shout out to Knicks Chick (@KnicksChick) for the mention during her video blog, I am honored by the mention
