We all know Stephen A. Smith’s strong reaction and his outspoken, harsh take on many trending agendas. The final episode of ESPN’s First Take on Monday provided another vivid illustration of the analyst’s fiery comment.
Stephen A. co-hosted the show First Take on ESPN and they discussed the latest trending topics with their guests. The last episode starred former NBA pro and analyst Jay Williams, with whom the co-host shares a history.
Monday’s argument was based on the popular topic of Kyrie Irving’s move to the Dallas Mavericks. And the journalist veteran didn’t hold back from stepping on the gas with the guest.
What did Stephen A. Smith say about Jay Williams?
At one point on the show, Smith was excited by William’s comment on Kyrie’s potential for the Mavericks. Smith didn’t appreciate the former NCAA champion’s ambiguity.
“Jay, you know what – I want to ask you, do me a favor: stop telling me what you ‘find interesting’ and just tell us what you think,” the 55-year-old became impatient. “You say, ‘I find it interesting.’ That’s what you always say… say what you say.”

The “interesting” part for Jay was Kyrie’s previous track record and history of controversy, but Stephen vigorously confronted him to voice his thoughts.
At this intense attack from the experienced analyst, Jay was confused and angry. However, the presenter tried to keep the duo in check by not personally interfering in the debate.
Jay Wright hit the media after retiring early from basketball before the age of 25. Since then he has worked in the front offices of various industries. He now works as an NBA analyst for ESPN.
Stephen, on the other hand, began his media career at ESPN in 2005. Since then, he has gained notoriety and fame for his bizarre approach to various subjects and people.
