Stephen A. Smith made an incredibly strange comment Monday about Nets star Kyrie Irving.
The ESPN superstar was ripping the Nets guard for having inconsistent availability, according to BroBible, but he might have gone a shade too far with one of his remarks! (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
“When Russia bombed Ukraine, I thought Kyrie Irving wasn’t going to show up for work,” Stephen A. told ESPN viewers when talking about Kyrie, who is currently down 0-3 to the Celtics, finding reasons to not play.

I’m honestly not even sure what point Stephen A. was attempting to make here. I get that he’s frustrated with Kyrie’s lack of availability over the years, but this comment was next level!
In terms of hot takes, this one was scorching!

If you find yourself comparing athletes to an active war zone, things have probably gone off the rails. Leave that to the pros like me.
I’ve spent the past 188 days fighting to save Big 10 football. Today, we accomplished the mission.
Much like the Osama Bin Laden raid or D-Day, you never know when your number will be called to serve. All you hope for is to execute your job and the mission.
We did just that.
