Stephen A Smith went on the offensive against Kwame Brown after a few days of radio silence about the issue.
This whole thing started off with Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson slyly joking about Kwame’s playing days. Since then, Kwame Brown has been talking about how Stephen A Smith has systematically ruined his NBA career.
Kwame has definitely been using a few words that won’t be suitable for a TV audience. But the man has been steadily gaining a platform daily by criticizing talking heads and radio shows personalities. Stephen A Smith, however, gains a special place of detest in Kwame’s views.
This is because the man has been winning millions of followers through his dramatized rants about Kwame. Stephen A didn’t just do it on his TV shows, he even went to a college program and warned students: ‘Don’t be like Kwame. A bust who never improved his game.’
He’s even talked down the likes of Jalen Rose when they’ve gone on air to defend Kwame’s play. There are just too many incidents of this from the past about how Stephen A’s needlessly ridiculed the former Laker.
Stephen A Smith ridicules Kwame Brown again by playing lowlights from his Hornets days
As if it weren’t enough, Smith has also now conveniently taken to his own show to bring that narrative up again. Smith began another rant, but this time by slyly implying that he’s somehow taking the high road by not swearing or going personal:
“I have considerably better things to do, but Kwame Brown wanted my attention. You got it now. I didn’t wanna have to do this, but he made. Look, I don’t have a single negative thing about Kwame Brown the person.”
After yet another unseasoned delivery regarding how Kwame Brown’s roasts went personal, Smith pulled up footage from his Hornets days. Brown incidentally played with Stephen Jackson in Charlotte during his time in the league.

Funnily enough, Smith has reacted in the exact fashion that Kwame said he would. All Kwame wanted was a true and clear apology for all the unwarranted shots that Smith has taken over the years. Instead, Smith has really gone and done the opposite and is apparently going to play 15 of these montages.
If people didn’t believe that Smith had an agenda with Brown earlier, they definitely will now. Yes, Stephen A, he got personal with you. But that’s what happens when you bully a person for 20 years and they’ve had enough.
Kwame’s response to this will definitely make for interesting viewing and everyone should watch it.
