Stephen A. Smith is the sporting world’s foremost professional troll. Smith even dressed up in costume to mock the Dallas Cowboys after they were eliminated from the playoffs. If there is one thing Stephen A. is good at, it’s letting people know when he’s right.

On a recent ESPN segment, Smith had some harsh words about Kevin Durant’s legacy. Smith said that Durant would be forever known as the man who left Steph Curry to play with Kyrie Irving if Brooklyn doesn’t win a title.

“If [the Nets] do not win a championship. … Kevin Durant is on the verge for being recognized more so for the guy that left Steph Curry to go with Kyrie Irving, than he is for the two chips and two finals MVP.”

Kevin Durant dropped into the replies after the NBA on ESPN tweeted the clip. KD said the claim was “egregious.” Smith then clapped back with a response of his own.

“It’s absolutely Egregious, @KDTrey5. Totally wrong and unfair to the highest degree. But it also happens to be true. Those will be the headlines all off-season. I’m not saying it’s fair at all because it’s not. You deserve better. But those will be the headlines. You can book it!”

Kevin Durant should know better. There’s no winning when it comes to arguing with Stephen A. Smith. The Brooklyn Nets should be doing their talking on the hardwood.
