No, Stephen A Smith did not break up the Bledsoe-Embiid fight
A funny video circulating on Twitter suggested that Stephen A Smith had played peacemaker between Eric Bledsoe and Joel Embiid, but sadly, that is not true.
Bledsoe was ejected for shoving and then throwing a ball at Embiid a few minutes into Thursday’s Milwaukee Bucks-Philadelphia 76ers game. As soon as the skirmish broke out, players and coaches ran over to try and break things up. That included a staffer in a navy blue suit who resembles Stephen A. Smith. That led some to circulate video saying the ESPN personality had run onto the court to intervene.

The video made for a funny story and plenty of jokes about Smith thinking he’s invincible now that he’s signed a mega deal with ESPN. In actuality, that wasn’t him. We will be requiring a photo of his lookalike, though.
