Stephen A. Smith hates being called out, and when it happens, he usually lashes out in a big way.
Longtime New York Giants running back Tiki Barber is finding that out the hard way after he fired back at Stephen A. Smith’s commentary regarding his former team. Smith said he refuses to believe the Giants’ claims amid the Brian Flores saga because the organization has never had a Black head coach.
“There’s no one more incriminating than the New York Giants when it comes to Black coaches. We are in the year 2022. All of these years, damn near a century for crying out loud, there is one single franchise that has not had a Black coach. That is the New York Giants.”
Barber took to the airwaves and reprimanded the longtime First Take host.
On WFAN’s Tiki & Tierney, Barber had this to say.
“I can’t sit here, with conviction, like Stephen A. — who doesn’t know anybody in the Giants’ organization — and claim that they’re a racist organization,” Barber said. “I would never do that. The only reason I would do that is because I’m trying to make a point, and my point is that Brian Flores is trying to make a point.”
Well…Now, Stepen A. Smith is taking it to another level by seemingly threatening to expose him and his secrets from his time with the Giants.
Barber retired with 10,449 yards and 55 touchdowns for his career. He retired just one season before the Giants won the Super Bowl, which really sucked for him, because his final year, he put up over 1,600 yards.
