Stephen A. Smith Apologizes For Mocking Anthony Davis Getting Hurt

It’s no secret that Lakers star Anthony Davis’ health has been an issue since he helped the Lakers win the Championship in 2020.

It’s something he can’t control, and wishes wouldn’t happen, but it does.

In the Lakers’ game five against the Warriors, AD took an elbow from Kevon Looney to his temple in the 4th quarter while the Lakers were trying to mount a comeback. The hit knocked AD off his balance, and he had to be removed from the game. Moments later, it was reported that he was taken to the back and had to be taken to the locker room in a wheelchair.

The fear was that he suffered a concussion and would be in the protocol, risking his availability for Game 6.

That made some people joke about it. Stephen A. Smith is one of those people.

During ESPN’s First Take, Smith joked about AD getting hit and having a possible concussion saying he thought the NFL season was over and asking if he was running into Ronnie Lott or Ray Lewis. That didn’t sit well with many people, and Stephen A. got a lot of criticism.

Later in the day after the show, he went to Twitter to say he was not minimizing the seriousness of a concussion but was questioning how AD could get one based on the play he saw. He said he was wrong, and it was his bad.

Anthony Davis’ history of putting a little hot sauce on his injuries is why many people didn’t take it that seriously. Stephen A. Smith, though should know better. A fan could say that, but not a media person.

The fact that Anthony Davis didn’t even have a concussion says a lot.

Luckily, Anthony Davis is reportedly ok and will be available for Game 6.
