Stephen A Smith’s surprising response to Kwame Brown’s NSFW fist fight challenge

Stephen A. Smith, Kwame Brown

Retired NBA big man Kwame Brown has made headlines of late after he clapped back at the trio of Matt Barnes, Stephen Jackson, and Gilbert Arenas, for what he considers to be slander against his person. Not long after, Brown took aim at ESPN broadcaster Stephen A Smith, literally challenging the latter to a fistfight in another NSFW rant.

Smith has caught wind of Brown’s challenge and has responded in a rather surprising manner:

Smith appears to have backtracked on his earlier criticism of Brown by saying that the slander is unwarranted. Kwame was clearly incensed when he challenged Smith to a fight in Seattle (where apparently, you did not have to sign a waiver prior to a fight), and he was dead serious too. Smith is not a small dude, but at 6-foot-11 and 290 pounds, Kwame Brown will absolutely pummel him in a fistfight. Perhaps Brown knocked some sense into Smith’s head with his rather violent attitude?

Smith is not one to back down, but on this particular occasion, he opted to do so. The outspoken ESPN analyst also declared that he has no intention to waste his time in even attempting to respond to Kwame Brown’s challenge, which in itself, seems like another diss at the former Los Angeles Lakers big man.

With Stephen A Smith refusing to engage, it sounds like this is the end of this rather odd narrative. Did any of us really think a Brown-Smith bout was a potential undercard fight for the Mayweather-Paul extravaganza?
