Stephen A. Smith to Kevin Durant: You Do Not Want to Make An Enemy out of Me (?)

Did you read Awful Announcing’s post discussing Stephen A. Smith’s threat against NBA All-Star Kevin Durant

Seems that Smith said Durant would make the Los Angeles Lakers a strong contender for his services if the superstar chose to leave Oklahoma City, a comment Durant denied forcefully. Durant claimed Smith had talked to no one in his inner circle. 

Smith had a few forceful comments of his own:

But I will say this lastly. You don’t want to make an enemy out of me. And I’m looking right at the camera and I’m going to say it again. You do not want to make an enemy out of me. I’m not having it. I’ve done nothing wrong. And I’m not going to tolerate it.

Are you kidding me? Screaming A., you are a broadcaster. You are a nobody with a microphone!  We at BSP admit Smith was well in advance of national media on LB James going to Miami, but this is an unhinged statement. Who cares what you’re going to tolerate? These are grown men … grown men whom you are relying upon to make a living. It’s not like you have an unreplaceable talent.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
