Stephen A. Smith Blasts ESPN's Ranking of Kobe Bryant


Stephen A. Smith is used to rambling on ESPN's "First Take," and usually people aren't fond of him.

This time, however, the public may be somewhat on Smith's side when it comes to the ranking of Kobe Bryant as the 93rd player in the NBA. Yes Bryant is not what he used to be, but are there really 92 players in the NBA right now who are better than him? That's behind Marcus Smart, Brandon Knight (perhaps most famous for being dunked on by DeAndre Jordan), and Jahlil Okafor (who hasn't even played a regular season NBA game). 

Sit back and watch Smith almost bust a blood vein to make his point.
