Watch: Kwame Brown Challenges Stephen A. Smith to Mutual Combat

Kwame Brown has the perfect challenge for ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith and NBA fans are shocked. Smith delivered a dose of unhealthy criticism and controversy. The former Los Angeles Lakers center Kwame Brown challenged Smith to take part in a “mutual combat.”

Gilbert Arenas, Stephen Jaskcon, and Matt Barnes criticized Brown for failing to meet expectations. He was the No. 1 overall pick of the 2001 NBA Draft, and a lot of people wanted to see more from him.

Smith criticized Brown long ago, right after LA traded him for Pau Gasol in 2008. The Spaniard helped the Lakers win titles in 2009 and 2010. Brown struggled on the floor and experts criticized him for his inability to deliver.

Brown won’t get his wish because Smith was just trying to get reactions from other people.

One thing stands for sure. Brown is still haunted by his unfulfilled NBA career. His anger has reached the peak and his supporters will sure drop in comments to fuel the situation.

Michael Jordan made Brown the No.1 pick of the 2002 NBA draft out of high school when he was part of the Washington Wizards.

Brown didn’t live up to the selection and turned into a journeyman forward. He spent time with seven teams between 2001 and 2013. In the last week, Brown became part of a big controversy after former Wizards star Arenas took hit at him.

Arenas appeared on the “All The Smoke” podcast with Matt Barness and Stephen Jackson. He said that Brown was a “show pony.”

“Imagine being an 18-year-old kid getting drafted No. 1 by your idol and your idol is Michael Jordan… we know Michael Jordan’s personality. Imagine that personality going towards a 18-year-old kid, just bullying him,” Arenas said of Brown.

“When you’re making [Brown] look little to his peers, he loses his confidence. So when I get there, he doesn’t have confidence. So, it’s trying to build this man-child up… I call him a show pony, he’s a show horse.”
