Stephen A. Smith tells us to “Stay off the damn weeeeeee-duh!”

Stephen A. Smith has a certain fascination with marijuana. Well, at least in pronouncing weed “Weeeeee-duh”. The Twitter account @Whoabot has noticed this and has posted videos of SAS making this extended pronunciation at various times on First Take. Either he has a lot of free time or he has become obsessed. Then some others got involved. In any event they are quite funny. ...

Stephen A Smith lost his damn mind over Kevin Durant signing with the Warriors

I really don’t want to give him the attention. But following Kevin Durant’s announcement on Monday that he’d be joining the Golden State Warriors, Stephen A Smith had a meltdown across TV and social media that has to be seen to be believed.

WATCH: Stephen A. Smith unloads on Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant's decision to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors is the most divisive we’ve seen since LeBron James’ famous move to Miami. For ESPN’s Stephen A.

The heckling of Stephen A. Smith and his rise, fall, and rise again – Prologue: Cheez Doodles?!?!

Stephen A. Smith has made a nice television career out of yelling at ESPN viewers, but what happens when viewers yell at him? That’s what happened at the 2006 NBA Draft, when Martin Bell, Brian Hughes and Pat Stango (along with some of their other friends) decided to heckle Smith, film it, post it to YouTube, and submit it to Deadspin (where founding editor Will Leitch loved it...

Stephen A. Smith Is Always Wrong About The NBA Finals – Here’s Video Proof

Stephen A. Smith has made a prediction on ESPN for each of the last six NBA Finals.  The First Take co-host has been wrong all six times.  Smith, who’s background in sports journalism comes mostly in basketball and the NBA, has seemingly had a 50/50 chance of picking the winner of the Larry O’Brien Trophy prior to each Finals. And yet, he’s been wrong each time.  In 2011...

Stephen A. Smith says LeBron could still go to Lakers, Heat

Now that LeBron James has fulfilled his promise by delivering an NBA championship to the city of Cleveland, is he more or less likely to remain with the Cavaliers for the rest of his career?
