Steven A ...always. always. always believes every time a white person says something that he disagrees with he will always bring race into it.. he is so predictable.. he mentions that someone like Steve Kerr has no idea what is to be black when everyone that they are talking about is black.. as far has we can see Steph Curry is black.. LeBron is not the only black man in the league.. but Steven A acts like he is)

Hack ..that's all he is! He has no loyalty or conviction he only goes the way of the most $$. Trying to copy a Baptist preacher but only preaching LIES, he is a grifter and no one should take him serious.

Outspoken as usual but dead wrong on many beliefs about Trump. You see Stephen. A. lives in a dark bubble. The day will come when you realize that Obama is playing you for fools. Some will survive in a new world that is design for the slave masters but the 95% of the world population will all crumble to the NEW WORLD ORDER.

Lebron is a biatch. No father growing up. Behaves like a Karen. Probably the most famous Karen of all time
