Stephen A. Smith Is A Miserable Person

June 3, 2010

Stephen A. Smith hates Philadelphia.  No, he really does.  In a Sartre-esque twist, writing about Philadelphia sports for the Philadelphia Inquirer is the only work Stephen A. Smith can get.

Hell is being forced to write about the Sixers and Eagles.

Smith’s latest phoned in column accuses Philadelphia of hating Kobe Bryant.

Do we hate Kobe?

Of course we do.  If you didn’t notice, he’s kind of an enormous dick.

Stephen A. continues to chum the water by making statements like:

You would think with such lofty credentials there would be a statue standing somewhere, on some street corner, perhaps near City Hall, paying homage to Kobe Bryant – the greatest champion to ever come out of a place known for its associations with anything but.

OK?  Make sure to put it next to the statue of Kevin Eubanks.

More  Stephen A. Logic:

Those same folks would rather point to the fact that Bryant was raised in Italy during his formative years instead of recalling that he was born in Philadelphia. They’d rather question his street credibility because he starred in the suburbs of Lower Merion than appreciate how his game transcended the streets.

Screw Kobe and the fact that he didn’t live in the greater Philadelphia area for all of his formative years!  He cannot call himself a true Pennsylvanian!
I do question Bryant’s street credibility constantly.  I only respect basketball players who were homeless and literally raised by an inner city street.   And can you believe he’s never been shot with a gun?  Some kind of basketballer he is!
So we boo Kobe Bryant, who cares?  Sorry we can’t all be such stalwarts of appreciation and sportsmanship, Stephen.
We don’t like losing championships.  Especially to dicks like Kobe.
We also like our hearts and would rather not have them cut out.
