Stephen A. Smith along with Magic Johnson in the ‘First take’ put forward his thought about everything, and in doing so he showed the utmost respect for Kareem Abdul Jabbar, regarding all that he has done for the sport, but he needs to show a little bit of love to LeBron James, “Our deference and respect for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar knows no limits. Having said all of that does not mean that we can’t respectfully disagree with him. And it does not mean that we cannot shine a light on the phenomenal icon that we hope stays here for a while.”, Stephen A. Smith, also added, “Here’s what I would say to Kareem-Abdul Jabbar really quickly, ‘We love you sir, but you need to show LeBron James a little bit more love.”

Stephen A. Smith went ahead to praise LeBron James for his talks on social media and the fearlessness the King showcased, regarding such sensitive issues. LeBron James has a family foundation and uses it to help address them, “You cannot question this man’s character. You cannot question where this man’s heart lies. You cannot question the courage that LeBron James has been willing to put forth to speak on behalf of people who cannot speak for themselves.” Said Stephen A. Smith.


LeBron James has not only been recognized for his game but also for what he does outside the court. He has stood as a public figure, giving voice to the voiceless, he has given to his hometown more than his hometown could give, and for a legend such as Kareem Abdul Jabbar to go and criticize him was sure had been difficult.
