“We like to see her there, it’s just important to me.”: Stephen A. Smith thirsts over Iggy Azalea on ESPN First Take

Stephen A. Smith shoots his shot with singer Iggy Azalea after her halftime show at Madison Square Garden during the Celtics vs Knicks match

Stephen A. Smith is one of America’s most vocal sports analysts. Whether it’s his opinion on a sports-related topic or whatever, NBA fans love watching him for his personality. While many including myself disagree with almost all his basketball takes, the veteran analyst has established himself as one of the biggest names in the media industry.

It is very uncommon that Stephen. A talks about anything but sports. However, when he does, it is more fun to watch than his everyday basketball takes. For example, here’s a clip where he hits on a Latina reporter courtside.

We recently saw the 54-year-old aim even higher and fire his shot with Australian rapper Iggy Azalea. The rapper was on the back of performing at the halftime show of the New York Knicks season opener against the Boston Celtics.
