Stephen A. Smith Tells Jamie Foxx That Ben Simmons and Kyrie are Bad Examples of Good Black Athletes

Stephen A. Smith has responded to Jamie Foxx calling him out over his unfair remarks about Ben Simmons and according to him, Jamie’s claim that he [Stephen] only goes hard on NBA players and not other athletes isn’t true.

Vlad has more;

The show host said, “Jamie Foxx knows better. He’s just highly protective of the Black athlete as he should be because they deserve our protection, to be quite honest.”

He continued saying, “I’m calling out a Kyrie and Ben Simmons because of their impact and effect on the Black athlete. When you go to the collective bargaining table and they use them as an example to try to minimize their contribution to players, that’s about those players.

That’s not just about them, that’s about the Black athlete.” Smith went on to say he’s going to call out athletes and their performances regardless of their race.

Here is specifically what Jamie had to say.

That is completely unfair,” Foxx said of Smith’s commentary. “Ben Simmons has a family. This man has people that love him and this man just plays basketball but to be dragged through the mud like this is unfair…

“And why is it you only go at basketball players … you [are] completely mute when it comes to the Tom Bradys [and] the Aaron Rodgers of the world … You get where I’m going … stop it, bruh, it’s out of bounds.”

While I think you can certainly question Smith’s on who he picks and chooses to go after, I don’t think Ben Simmons is the hill that you want to die on. Kyrie Irving isn’t that much better.

The overall point is something that probably should be discussed, but maybe they should get together and talk about it. YOu know Smith is always up for a debate.
