Apparently the moment got the best of him Thursday morning, as Smith slipped and used an ill-advised word in reference to the notion that Kobe Bryant may miss the Lakers season opener:
Stephen A. was more into corner barber shop mode instead of live national television mode. This isn’t the first time Smith has slipped on the air, so expect the customary apology from the network and Steven A. to follow shorty.
But, it was still pretty funny. H/T to BSO for the video.
