    ESPN Analyst Stephen A. Smith Threatens New York Giants Tiki Barber

    Stephen A. Smith Comes for the New York Giants

    ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith shares threats with former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber, per ESPN . The feud between the two seems to have reached a boiling point. Yesterday morning, on-air Smith attempted to threaten and intimidate Barber. The feud began when Smith called the Giants organization racist for never hiring a Black head coach (HC) in the entirety of their franchise.

    Smith continually blasted the franchise and said he didn’t believe a word the New York Giants said in the entire fallout between Brian Flores. Although he was defending Flores, he did speak incorrectly. There are 13 other teams in the NFL that have yet to hire a Black full-time head coach. Barber spoke out against Smith on the Giant’s behalf saying that the Giants aren’t racist because he visited Wellington Mara’s deathbed and emphasized that Smith has no sources anyways.

    “I can’t sit here with conviction like Stephen A., who doesn’t know anybody in the Giants’ organization, and claim they’re a racist organization,” Barber said on his WFAN show last week . “I would never do that.”

    Stephen A. responded on Monday, claiming that he had dirt on Barber and he wouldn’t release it to the public out of the kindness of his heart.

    “Tiki, you don’t know who the hell I know,” he said on First Take. ”I’ve been a journalist for almost 30 years. I know a few people within the Giants organization. I know a lot of stuff about you, my brother, that I would never say because I have the decency not to say those things. Chill out. Watch yourself. And know who you’re talking about. That’s all I want to say.”

    Smith’s past beef with New York athletes

    The last time Smith threatened a New York athlete on live television the beef carried on for nearly a decade. In October 2015, Brooklyn Nets Kevin Durant violated Smith for erroneously reporting that Durant was headed to the Los Angeles Lakers. Many believe out of spite, Durant signed with the Golden State Warriors instead.

    “You don’t want to make an enemy out of me,” said Smith.

    These gentlemen have been chirping again since what appears to be the downfall of the Brooklyn Nets. It’s evident Brooklyn is dysfunctional, and it’s becoming more and more apparent as their losing streak continues. Unfortunately, the banter caused Durant’s mother to step in.

    “You at it again with your limited-thinking-negative-narrative-baiting-comments,” Durant’s mother tweeted at Smith on Saturday. “When will you show up better? More importantly, when will we grow tired of this foolishness?”

    Smith made it clear, that her diagnosis is correct and he apologizes for his actions.

    “Yes Ma’am!,” he wrote back. “I’m sorry!!!,” said Smith.
