Tensions between Stephen Jackson and Kwame Brown are now at a fever pitch in the wake of the latest ‘All the Smoke’ podcast.
Gilbert Arenas was recently a guest on the ‘All the Smoke’ podcast. The former Wizards star had a segment in his interview where he talks about Kwame Brown.
Arenas, Jackson and Barnes all had some deflating comments to make about the former #1 pick. Kwame decided enough was enough, and he’s now looking to put them to the sword with his own backlash.
The trio began their conversation by stating outright how Kwame could’ve been one of the best #1 picks ever. But Arenas somehow contrived to imply that the Wizards were trying to ‘build a man child out of him’. You can find the conversation beginning at 56:04 in the video below.
Kwame Brown goes OFF on Stephen Jackson, Matt Barnes and Gilbert Arenas
Kwame caught wind of this episode and what they talked about on it. His fury must have known no boundaries, because he released a rant video in response.
But that wasn’t all to it. Kwame Brown uploaded an hour-long video to address all the talk about him. He started it off with more shots aimed at Stephen Jackson and Matt Barnes, in particular:
“It’s okay to have an opinion, but it’s another thing to do what you guys are doing and then be in my face. Stephen Jackson — we was teammates and I seen you crying every time Charles Oakley ’bout to slap the s— out you, so I know you.”
“You really an embarrassment and I’ve been trying to stay quiet on you n—–, but I understand why they give people like you money and give people like you a platform because they want you to continue tricking these kids.”
“Change your podcast. The new podcast is ‘these n****s want some of the goddamn smoke’ because I want all the smoke and Jack, your sensitive ass, you know that.”
Kwame has every right to feel the way that he does. It’s been a long time since he retired and he’s never given the impression of being a vitriolic guy before. If I mocked your workplace ethic and your attitude there, you’d be pretty indignant with me much the same way.
Stephen Jackson has been burning bridges around the league for a while now. He should really know better than to needlessly take shots at former teammates without rhyme or reason.
