Stephen A.Smith Calls on NBA Gamers On Rant & Walks Off Set, Says They Do not Advocate Black Coaches (Video)
Stephen A. Smith is over it and, as always, has a lot to say. This time he had to leave after casting his swear words.
On a recent episode of “First Take,” Stephen A. Smith called out NBA players in response to the promotion of Celtics head coach Brad Stevens to president of basketball operations.
Stephen said in part, “NBA players are some of the most powerful people in the world. When did you speak out in favor of black coaches? When? When did you campaign for black executives, GMs, President of Basketball Operations? When did that happen?”
He went on and also mentioned LeBron James. “LeBron, everyone … everyone … where the hell have you been? Nobody did anything. “
Before walking off set and letting us know he was pissed off, he also said, “You know what I’m running[ing] Path. I’ll be right back. I’m afraid to say something that might get me into trouble. I’m pissed off! I’m pissed off!”
Stephen isn’t the only one to speak out against the lack of diversity.
Last year Chris Paul stated, “The league is mostly made up of African American players. So you’d like to see more people in leadership positions, ”says Paul told reporters. “The league has told us and it is up to us, the players and the union to hold on to it to ensure that more people of color and women across the league continue to hold these leadership roles,” Bleacher Report said.
Roommate, what do you think of that?
