It’s an act. They pay him well to do that act.

He also has awful takes, but that's what you get with people like him.

Apart from being clueless about football, loud, and super obnoxious... I guess he's ok

It is like the old rule of thumb in pro wrestling for gimmicks. The very best ones were when a wrestler dialed up some facet of his personality to 11. Often obnoxiously so.

The Stephen A. Smith we see on ESPN is a gimmick. Smith happens to be a bit of a braying jackass in real life. He turns that facet of his personality way, way up on camera.

Like DSJ said, they pay him well to do that act.

Because they’re paying him $10mm (or about to) for it

If you paid me $10mm a year to talk about the bachelor Id do the same

Stephen A talks out of his arse with regularity. For a famous guy, he says more shite thats wrong of anyone I ever saw not regularly on tRant.
