Stephen A. Smith and Malika Andrews

Malika Andrews, Stephen A. Smith, Jalen Rose and JJ Redick appeared as the hosts of ESPN’s “NBA Countdown” on Friday night. Malika Andrews hilariously trolled Stephen A. by revealing the stat of his college basketball by comparing the college basketball stats of other hosts. Andrews unveiled a “blind résumé” showing the scoring averages for three players’ final seasons of college basketball. Among the three, one had 26.8 points average in the 2005-06 season, the other one had 19.9 points average in the 1993-94 season, and the last one had 1.5 points average in the 1990-91 season.

When Andrews revealed the name of the players Stephen A. was not happy because he was the one who averaged 1.5 points per game in college. Being a self-aware television performer, he explained the statistics from his final season as a point guard at Winston-Salem State while also changing his phony laughing into more genuine-sounding giggles. Stephen A. Smith said, “what they’re not telling you is I only played one game because I cracked my kneecap in half, but that’s neither here nor there.” 

JJ Redick played at Duke, one of the most respected universities for producing the best basketball players in the league. JJ was also the National College Player of the Year in 2006 before joining the NBA. Jalen Rose was one of the members of the Fab 5 squad at Michigan State University. Rose was drafted at 13th by Denver Nuggets in the 1994 draft season.

The crew at the NBA Countdown was opening the discussion about the Timberwolves and Grizzlies game. Memphis won the game 114-103. Ja Morant who was 2 dimes shy of a triple-double, scored 28 points, 10 rebounds, and eight assists. His costars Desmond Bane and Dillion Brooks scored 24 and 21 points respectively.

Except the left out that I never played because I cracked my kneecap in half. No matter that.” He further added, “Flow with that narrative if that makes you feel better. I can take lies all day. I always do. Enjoy.
