    SAS: No matter how much I and others criticized him and tried to tear him down. He kept coming. I apologize. Is what he could have said...but instead they always make it like they were in your corner the whole time and it was others saying those things.

    Love the woke society .. now after ESPN being the most woke sports media presenters now the target of the woke crowd ..seems some woman I do not no believes that she needs to to paid on par with Mr Smith just because she's a woman ..huh .. not marat .. not work load .. just cause .. does she do near the work Mr Smith does .. not even close .. only thing is a misguided belief of equal worth .. this is not man and woman issue .. it is who brings what to the table .. a image head and a relative unknown .. stop the madness .. peace

    And that is why Stephen A Smith and Michael Wilbon are the best! Whoever came up with the idea to pair them two (2) was genius. "He just kept coming..." I think many underestimated the pairing of B. Portis, J Holiday, with P.J. Tucker (created a tougher locker room). I also think we did not realize how desperate Brook Lopez wanted to win; he played like it was his final season. Also, we did not realize the tried and tested friendship between Middleton and Giannis -- Yes, Giannis is a superstar surrounded by a collective super team!
