In a skit that has been more than a long time coming, “Saturday Night Live” finally decided to take on the task of ragging on ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith. They couldn’t have nailed it more perfectly. As you can see from the clip above, SNL’s Jay Pharoah had Stephen A.’s mannerisms and accent down perfectly. I’ve literally been waiting almost five years for SNL to make fun of Smith for acting like every NBA superstar is his closest friend, and the writers were all over it.
“Chris Bosh and I are like soul mates. We have showered together. We have fed each other seedless fruits for more times than I can remember.”
Absolutely perfect. There’s no way a guy should be able to say things like this and not be made fun of on national television. Bravo, Pharoah — A+ execution.
