When rumors about LeBron James potentially joining the Golden State Warriors next season started to make the rounds, First Take co-host Stephen A. Smith took full advantage of his opportunity to yell loudly.
While discussing the subject with Max Kellerman, Smith let it known that if Lebron where ever to join the Warriors his legacay would be tarnished forever.
“Let me be very, very clear to LeBron James. If you even think of going to the Golden State Warriors, your legacy is tarnished forever. There’s no other way around it. You cannot be the best player in the world that has had a stacked deck, that wins three championships – the latest in Cleveland, after ending a drought that lasted more than a half-century in that city. You’ve lost two of the last three championships to the Golden State Warriors, and then you turn around and you decide to join them?”
I can’t believe I’m going to type this, but once again I agree with Stephen A. What the hell is wrong with me.
