Did Stephen A. Smith Call Lebron James a “N*gger” on ESPN First Take? (Video)
I will be 100% honest at first I thought this was just some blogs trying to slander Stephen A. Smith because I didn’t hear it the first three times I listened to it.
It is hard sometimes to listen to Stephen A. because he is yelling at the top of his lungs and I am not a yeller so I sort of tune it out.
But then I found the transcript of where the alleged N bomb was said. Here is the transcript and then the video.
“He is too supremely talented. He may be the best talent in the world. You know what? You just got to get that heart man! Stop walking around like the Tin Man syndrome. I mean what is wrong with you!? This N*gga. Come on man. He got it in him. Just peel it out. Suck it up. Wear the black hat. “
After listening to the exact part it does appear Stephen A. did slip it in by accident.
If he did, he knows better. Maybe if he calmed down a bit he wouldn’t have these type of slip ups, he was making Skip seem rational.
Smith’s points sans yelling, sans possible N Word was a valid one. I know that is his thing, but I think a lot of his points get lost in the yelling.
I don’t know if Stephen A. will comment on this, if he did say it, he should apologize no need for that type of language.
