This is no big deal. It's what Steven A Smith does.
I remember back in 2007-2008, when the Celtics got Garnett and Ray Allen. Boston had a great lineup, but during a broadcast, Steven Smith said that they had no Point Guard. When someone brought up that the current Point Guard was playing well, a new relatively obscure kid named Rajon Rondo, Steven A broke out into one of his famous rants....
"...Rajon Rondo?!?! Come on !!!! Rajon Rondo ??!??!? You're not going to win anything with with Rajon Rondo!!! They need a real Point Guard. ..."
The rest is history. I remember how mockingly Steven A was pronouncing and dragging out the name 'Ra-jon Ron-do' during his rant.
I think it was on one of those ESPN columnist-type shows. I wish I had a link. I'm sure ESPN has done away with them.
