It was just over a month ago when I had a post on an interview that Stephen A. Smith did with and L.A. based site Further Off the Wall. In his interview he had many damning things to say about blogs but the highlight was this quote…..”I respect the journalism industry, and the fact of the matter is …someone with no training should not be allowed to have any kind of format whatsoever to disseminate to the masses to the level which they can.”

Almost a month later what does the NBA expert decide to do? Start a blog of course! From Stephen A. Smith’s “On The Blog” via Simon on Sports….

I’m actually doing something I never thought I’d do in my lifetime: writing a blog.
In the interest of being real, although I’ve been a journalist for more than 14 years, therefore intimately accustomed to writing, especially on the fly, I’ve never desired to have my own website, let alone write my own blog. But things change when your loved ones notice your notoriety more than you do, when they aspire for your voice to expand, when they’ve grown tired of the countless times they’ve heard critics rain venom without compunction because they sensed my voice was limited.

Well that’s nice Stephen….I’m sure that’s what people are looking for. More of you. While the fact that he has a blog is humorous on its own the best part is that he allows comments! This should be good…..

Quite frankly…this is the best blog ever. It’s as though my soul were huffing paint.
