Anyone who has been unfortunate enough to catch Stephen A (aka “Screaming A”) Smith on ESPN’s basketball coverage knows that he can be obnoxious at the best of times. He makes his living from shouting at the camera in an attempt to produce controversy.
This time around he was involved in a debate of sorts with fellow ESPN commenter Skip Bayless about whether the San Antonio Spurs or Oklahoma City Thunder were the better team. Bayless pointed out the contributions of Tiago Splitter and Patty Mills as a solid factor in the Spurs’ favour. As you will see, Screaming A went on to ridicule the name of Patty, rather than actually pointing out any flaws in his game. Quite a few Spurs fans have gotten up in arms about this.
Thanks to Project Spurs for the footage.
