"Steve Curry, Steven Curry, Steph, --I like 'Steve myself."
(Nervous laughter from the producer in background.)
Worse yet, Spears, who should know better but is considered by Yahoo and KNBR, I guess, as a hipster, cool dude got seriously worse later on too. He's dreadful on radio. Sounded real crappy. Unintended-laughter entertainment special.
I mean, at least Stephen A. Smith has credentials and can actually elicit information and not butcher a star NBA player's name like STEPH Curry. Steve? Not.
Did Spears think he was funny with the "Steve" routine? I hope it was a matter of Spears simply fucking up because that gets you post-game radio gigs on Knibber.
The rest of the show sounded dreadful too --mounds of dead air. Awkward interview with more dead air with some guy in Sacramento who had all the charisma of a poached egg. Thankfully his name wasn't Steph.
