Stephen A. Smith Slips Up, Drops N-Word On ESPN

12/08/2011 at 10:53 am By

Sports analyst Stephen A. Smith can get pretty animated at times when he is attempting to make a point. Earlier Thursday on ESPN First Take, Stephen A. had a little slip up when referring to LeBron James’ ego struggle. Here’s video courtesy of our friends at BSO:

Here is the full transcript of Smith’s comments:

“He is too supremely talented. He may be the best talent in the world. You know what? You just got to get that heart man! Stop walking around like the Tin Man syndrome. I mean what is wrong with you!? This N*gga. Come on man. He got it in him. Just peel it out. Suck it up. Wear the black hat.”

Stephen A. was ranting (as usual) and got a a little too worked up (also, as usual). Smith sounded as if he was having a debate in a neighborhood barber shop instead of nationally on ESPN. No word if Smith will apologize, but he definitely knows better than this and a quick apology may be his best option.

This isn’t the first slip up on ESPN this year. Ron Jaworski said “sh*t” live during Monday Night Football back in September. Incidents such as these should remind us that analysts and television personalities are human just like the rest of us. Mistakes happen sometimes. Doesn’t make them any less excellent at what they do on a daily basis. #Message
