Stephen A. Smith hilariously takes shot at LeBron James, Lakers in crazy reaction to Knicks feat
New York Knicks fanatic and ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith is making sure LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers know that his favorite team is rolling.
The Knicks grabbed another huge win on Monday against the Memphis Grizzlies to continue their impressive season, which has been nothing but monumental for the entire Big Apple. Aside from clinching their first postseason berth in seven seasons, the 118-104 win over the Grizzlies guaranteed the Knicks their first winning record in eight years.
No wonder Smith is amped. He hopped on Twitter right after the Knicks’ big W to celebrate and throw shade at LeBron and the defending champions, of course.
“Top four seed in the Eastern Conference. I’m talking about the New York Knicks who, by the way, got a better record than LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. Ya think? What did I tell ya’ll? It’s a new day!”
THE KNICKS!!!! NEW YORK, STAND UP!!!! pic.twitter.com/y8GBX2YYlC

Smith’s fired-up take also included throwing some shade on the Brooklyn Nets, Milwaukee Bucks, and Philadelphia 76ers. In addition, he put NY’s best player in Julius Randle in the MVP conversation. That’s Stephen A. Smith for you.
Not to burst Smith’s bubble, but LeBron and company did end up winning on Monday as well, which meant they’re knotted with the Knicks with identical 37-28 records.
But as Smith repeatedly mentioned, his favorite squad is clinging on to a top-four spot heading into the NBA Playoffs, while the Purple and Gold are still trying to avoid the play-in tournament, which we all know LeBron James considers as sh*t.
