Former Cavs Coach David Blatt Blasts ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith


Former Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt took a shot at ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith today, while speaking at the Calcalist’s Forecast 2019 conference in Tel Aviv.

Blatt, who is now the head coach of Greek Euroleague team Olympiacos, had the following to say about Dallas Mavericks star rookie Luka Doncic and Smith:

“I told everyone he (Dončić) was the best player in the draft. Stephen A. Smith is clueless at basketball,” Blatt said, referring to several comments made by Smith favoring 2018 first draft pick DeAndre Ayton. “(Dončić) is hands down the best player in the draft.”

Ayton has quietly crept back into the conversation for ROY, but Dončić is clearly leading the race. He is currently averaging 19.6 PPG, 6.5 RPG, and 5 APG, all while shooting 43.6% from the field.

I, for one, can’t wait to hear Stephen A.’s reply on First Take tomorrow!
