Stephon Marbury and Stephen A. Smith don’t like each other, and a lengthy commentary on Kyrie Irving revealed the bad blood between them

Stephen A. Smith’s mouth has blurted out controversial words in the past, and he’s gotten away with it, but this time, he may not be as fortunate as Stephon Marbury claims his day of reckoning is coming.

Stephon Marbury vs Stephen A. Smith

Stephon Marbury and Stephen A. Smith don’t like each other, and a lengthy commentary on Kyrie Irving revealed the bad blood between them. SAS criticized Irving for his vaccination stance, to which Stephon responded and called the NBA analyst “Uncle Tom.”

Smith didn’t retaliate and instead brought up a weird thing in 2009. Starbury live-streamed himself eating insane amounts of vaseline while crying in the video. That weird scenario elicited a polarizing response from those who watched it. Naturally, the media had a field day with him without knowing its context.

Apparently, Stephon was having a hard time at that moment and later admitted he was depressed and suicidal. Marbury was grieving many things: his father’s passing in 2007, the impending end of his career, and the unraveling of his sneakers company “Starbury.”

The next question that needs to be answered here: is it safe to consume that enormous amount of vaseline? As long as the product passes the FDA requirements for being safe for human consumption, it’s good to go. However, excessive consumption could lead to an upset stomach.

Now, back to the story, SAS lambasted Kyrie again, calling him delusional, which prompted a response from Marbury.

“I’m starting to think Stephen A.Smith thinks he’s a star for speaking the English language loud and obnoxious on TV.”

Marbury claims Smith’s day of reckoning is coming

With all the controversial and borderline blasphemous statements that Smith has said in his career, a Twitter user asked Stephon if someone needs to give SAS a Chris Rock treatment. We all know what went down at the Oscars. Will Smith slapped the comedian for making fun of his wife on national TV. The former New York Knicks guard responded that it would happen sooner than later.

Even if Marbury is half-serious on this one, it’s still a public threat to Smith. Even if only a reminder for Smith to keep himself in check with his comments, it’s still wrong because he hopes someone gives Smith a physical beating. Black people attacking Black people for saying something about Black people will not do anyone good. Trading barbs on Twitter is okay but perpetuating violence or physical harm will not be okay.

Stephon Marbury is a good player, but he needs to realize the effect of what he says on social media. The same can be said of Stephen A. Smith. He makes a living talking about players, but he needs to be constructive in his message without destroying or putting others down.
