The Los Angeles Lakers experienced one of the worst defeats of their entire season against their city rivals in the LA Clippers on Thursday. I say that with a touch of hesitation given the many stomach upsets this crew has endured throughout the season. The preseason win streak against the Oklahoma City Thunder rings among other things, but losing to the Clippers the way they did Thursday is certainly a solid case.
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith has shared his reflections on the Lakers’ 132-111 loss, and the telecaster major started his outburst with the Lakers forcing him to skid. He also watched the game live at the Crypto.com Arena, and according to Smith, that was the overall feeling of Lakers fans in the structure.
LeBron James slams Stephen A Smith for his controversial comments
Smith then focused on LeBron James at this point, who made a few dubious comments about the Clippers even after the game. According to a distraught LeBron, the Clippers were “the better team.” Thursday marked the Lakers’ seventh straight Clippers mishap going back to the final pre-season, which sort of legitimizes James’ comments. In any case, it was not well received by Stephen A.:
“For the first time in Los Angeles Lakers history, we’ve heard a Laker say the Clippers are a better team,” Smith said on Friday’s episode of First Take. “…I challenge anyone to find me a Los Angeles Laker in history who said, ‘Well, the Clippers are just the better team.’ We’re not the only ones who have heard of this [Thursday] Night. We heard that from the second greatest player in basketball history, in my opinion, Mr. LeBron James.”
If you think about it logically, LeBron’s claim is really accurate. Still, Smith contradicts the way a Lakers player had the guts to say that in regards to their tough opponent in the Clippers – much more along those lines, LeBron James. Stephen A. is adamant that no Laker has ever uttered those words in the entire existence of his illustrious establishment, and that LeBron’s remarks here are fundamentally at odds with everything the Lakers represent.
