Stephen A. Smith, Who’s Not a Lawyer, Claims He Could Have Convicted O.J. Simpson (Video)
Stephen A. Smith, a man who’s known for saying some pretty ridiculous things on-camera, may have topped himself on Monday while speaking about the O.J. Simpson trial.
The talking head said that, despite having no legal experience, he could have convicted the star based on the cast that Johnnie Cochran and the Dream Team of lawyers made.
His exact words?
“I have profound respect for the late Johnny Cochran, God rest his soul,” he said. “It might be the cockiest thing I’ve ever said … Christopher Darden and Marcia Clark did an absolutely horrendous job as prosecutors. Because if it were me, there’s no way in hell that Johnny Cochran would have beaten me with that evidence that I, that they, had. I’m telling you right now, I’m not even a lawyer. There is no way that you would have put 12 jurors in front of me with that evidence and I would have lost it, even to Johnny Cochran. I’d have won that trial. I’ve often said that.”
Can we get him in a mock trial to back this statement up?
