What was Stephen A. Smith’s response to Kwame Brown? A video shows Kwame Brown challenging the ESPN host to ‘mutual combat’, and now Stephen A. Smith has responded. Here’s what he said to Kwame Brown.

Kwame Brown has been making a name for himself recently after going after All the Smoke podcast’s Matt Barnes, Stephen Jackson and Gibert Arenas.

The former NBA player was unhappy with comments the trio made about him and his career, prompting Brown to sound off in a number of profanity-laden videos.

Now, though, Kwame Brown is going after another of his detractors, a certain Stephen A. Smith, who hasn’t exactly shied away from criticising Brown in the past.

Here’s what Kwame Brown said and what Stephen A. Smith’s response was.

Kwame Brown challenges Stephen A. Smith to “mutual combat”

Kwame Brown has been going at a whole host of NBA faces recently, including Matt Barnes, Stephen Jackson and Gilbert Arenas.

However, now the former no.1 overall pick has turned his attention to ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, who has been equally critical of Brown in the past.

The former Los Angeles Lakers centre delivered the message to Stephen A. Smith, suggesting they engaged in “mutual combat.”

Stephen A. Smith’s history with Kwame Brown

Stephen A. Smith has been highly critical of Kwame Brown in the past, labelling him ‘a bonafide scrub’ and one of the biggest busts in NBA history.

In 2008, the Lakers traded Brown for Pau Gasol, going on to win two titles with Gasol in 2009 and 2010.

It was during this time that Stephen A. went in on Kwame Brown, and one of the most popular moments/memes in NBA history was born.

Stephen A. Smith’s Twitter response to Kwame Brown’s challenge

Stephen A. Smith apparently saw Kwame Brown’s challenge and decided to respond.

He posted his response on Twitter, saying that he basically has no interest in challenging Brown.

He said: ‘I will not waste my time. That man is right; he’s been retired for years, yet all of us have been guilty of getting on him from time-to-time. He has every right to speak his mind. Go for it!’

Brown is yet to say comment further, but don’t expect him to say quiet for too long.

After years of being ridiculed it seems he’s finally speaking up.
