Stephen A. Smith went on Howard Stern's show this morning and talked about Kobe Bryant. In a somewhat shocking admission Smith told the audience and Stern that Kobe "scared the shit" out of him because he was a basketball savant and would not hesitate to call the ESPN analyst when he thought he got something wrong.

Smith then gave a blow-by-blow retelling of what a phone call with Kobe Bryant was like. It was tremendous.

Great stuff. Given the type of person Kobe was those phone calls probably happened a lot.
