A sports commentator/Columnist threatening a player after that player denied saying what said commentator/columnist reported is unacceptable!

Stephen A to Durant- “You don’t want to make an enemy out of me”, Is nothing short of a threat.  And he repeated himself to further emphasize the threat. He did something similar to Michael Carter Williams.
Don’t know about you but I consider that unacceptable.

One of my best friends consults Radio stations and talent. One of his colleagues (Stephens rep at the time) referred Stephen A to him. I wont even go into some of the things that Stephen A did and said to him. The above is enough to prove my point.
I know that this guy is smelling himself big time and makes it a point to personally go after athletes that call him out. In Media/Journalism, those actions are unacceptable and unprofessional.


On the show I saw he was just calling it like it is, he even used Lebron as an example saying “if any superstar player played like this, even Lebron, if I don’t report how it is, I’m not doing my job”
I have no problem with that but I could do without the theatrics. He always breaks his comment down and explains it like the example above after he’s said something unnecessarily demeaning. He’s a smart guy but he plays the part of an Ass Clown.

I actually think Steven A is more fair than not in his commentary, some don’t like the shouting theatrics, some would call that ghetto, but I have no problem with it, I find it entertaining and he’s keeping it real, like on the streets.

So we have a game 7 and with CP3 maybe not playing or not being healthy GSW have a shot to win game 7.  Not sure what the status of Iggy.

Injuries are taking their toll on all 4 teams except Boston went into the playoffs short handed already.

This is where coaches earn their paychecks.

GSW has more fire power than Houston.  Gordon would need to produce a signature game for Houston to win.

I am now leaning GSW way to win game 7.

Stephen A is full of horse manure.  He has been all over the place during these playoffs.  He changes his tune as the wind blows.  He is a loud mouth know it all.  

Are players like Durant supposed to be in fear of him?

He is the ultimate band wagon sports analyst.  I have little respect for his clown show and his knowledge of the game.

Supposedly Durant didn’t give access to Steven A for a while after he left Thunder, all the hoops fans that I know and speak with occasionally also think Durant leaving the way he did for that team was bush league and bad for the game.

Meh. I’m impressed with his sports knowledge but can do without the side show and threats.

Of course Durant wouldn’t give him access! Would you if he put something out there that’s you and your people deny and then he comes back with a threat?
I don’t have a problem with the WAY Durant left. I’m disappointed that he chose Golden State and NOT because he didn’t choose the Celtics.

The players all have to deal with the media in some form, Steven A didn’t challenge anything personal, he merely pointed out what all my hoop junkie friends also said that Durant took the easy way out, that no superstar level player had ever done to that level....if Durant couldn’t get over that, tough shit, life isn’t always rosy, that a lot of fans called him out on his actions. In the old days they wanted to kill each other on the floor and this guy joins them? Durant is a pussy.

A 33-15 3rd quarter and the Rockets are on the ropes again.

Never lift your chin when you're in a ring with a prolific pubcher.

Did the Rockets really miss 27 consecutive 3 point shots? That is unbelievable!

Houston got 3 points from their bench, GS got 7.

Who needs a bench in the playoffs?

Bob,

Yup, that is the answer. Us.

We are not a star driven team. We cannot expect to beat star driven teams unless we are healthy and our bench contributes. We came close and I enjoyed our run. Next season I hope our best players survive the regular season intact and our bench actually comes off the bench and doesn't have to start.

Nick Young may be a one-dimensional conscience-less gunner, but at least he's honest.

I don't know if Cleveland can play any better than they did in the first half, and they're still tied.

And Tristian Thompson just got himself suspended for game 2. He was ejected and then threw a punch at Green. Not smart.
