NBA analyst Stephen A. Smith slammed Los Angeles Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka for assembling a roster that is turning out to be worthless. The LA Lakers have lost a few key players to injuries, leading to a second-seed Lakers team taking on the court. However, Lakers player Patrick Beverley went viral for his gestures to his opponent from the Phoenix Suns, Chris Paul.

Stephen A. Smith was talking on the recent episode of the show ‘First Take,’ where he quoted, “If you didn’t shove Chris Paul in the back. We wouldn’t be looking at that if you didn’t shove Deandre Ayton in the back. The fact of the matter is, once upon a time before you did that kind of stuff then that’s just you being a pest and you trying to agitate people emotionally and stuff like that.”

He added, “It would have been nice for you to do it in a closer game instead of you getting blown out, losing to the Phoenix Suns yet again, it would have been nice if you did it then and it would have been nice had you done something while competitive absent of the shove in the back to Chris Paul and those boys.”

Stephen then blasted Vice President – Rob Pelinka, stating, “Also, I’m appalled. Lonnie Walker, Dennis Schroder, Thomas Bryant, Patrick Beverley, and Troy Brown Jr. is your starting five for the Los Angeles Lakers. Really, Rob Pelinka? Really? Because on a day like today, this is the storyline we have to talk about with the Lakers. It’s the most interesting storyline there is about the Los Angeles Lakers. Think about that; that’s how sad this is. Rob Pelinka, what’s up? What’s up, bro?”

The Suns also missed six players, including three-time All-Star Devin Booker (right groin soreness). Dennis Schroder led the Lakers with a season-high 30 points. He shot 12 of 19 from the field.

The Phoenix Suns registered three straight wins after losing five games before that. They are scheduled to face the Washington Wizards next, while the LA Lakers will take on the Charlotte Hornets next.
