These virtual streets are dangerous out here, folks. You’ve got to have real discerning eyes and ears when it comes to where you get your information and who that information comes from. There’s lots of fake news out there.
That sounds kind of daunting, right? But, honestly, it’s pretty easy. You just have to pay attention to reputable sources like Adrian Wojnarowski and explicitly not sources like a place called Ballsack Sports.
I mean, come on. That’s easy enough, right? Apparently, not for some folks.
That includes Kendrick Perkins, who got “sacked” live on ESPN’s air when he shared a story about Kyrie Irving calling James Harden washed in a team practice when the latter was still on the Nets. They got Perk good. It was pretty funny.
They also now have Stephen A. Smith who, apparently, referred to the same story on First Take. Y’all. You cannot make this up.
“Especially when Kyrie looked him in the face, according to reports, and told him you washed up. He said that to him.”
Did he? Did he really, though, Stephen A? As much as we’d all love for this spicy story to be true, it just isn’t. It was just something typed on a nice looking title card that floated around the internet. But that’s all it takes for people to think something is real these days.
Never in a million years did I think I’d ever see Stephen A. Smith — the absolute legend, the god, the take monster — getting got like this. Again, these internet streets are cruel.
Folks did not show any mercy once they realized what tragedy just took place. That includes Kevin Durant, himself.
He called this man Steve.
Nah, man. You hate to see it. All of us have been “sacked” before, one time or another — that’s why they had Josh Smith trending. But, man! Stephen A?!? Never thought I’d see the day.
Fans really went in on him after this one. They kind of went crazy with the theories, too. Like … what if … Kevin Durant actually runs BS sports?!? Or — we’re going wild with this one — what if it’s one ofh is burners?!?
They might be on to something, y’all.
You hate to see it. Be safe out here, family. Don’t get sacked. Or you, too, may go out sad like Stephen A. Smith did here.
