Watch Stephen A. Smith Eviscerate Wizards In Fiery Rant On ‘First Take’


Stephen A. Smith is mad at the Washington Wizards.

Like really, really mad at the Wizards.

The ever-opinionated ESPN personality has high expectations for John Wall, Bradley Beal and Co., but Washington’s seeming inability to fulfill its potential has led Smith to a breaking point. Watch him unleash on the Wizards during Thursday’s episode of “First Take:”


Now, we’re not sure Washington deserves that much criticism, but it’s easy to see where Smith is coming from.

After their 107-104  home loss to the 17-24 Utah Jazz on Wednesday, the Wizards sit 23-18, good for fifth place in the NBA’s Eastern Conference. That’s not horrible, but it’s certainly underwhelming from a team who has enough talent to back up their absurdly loud mouths.
