Stephen A. Smith is without a doubt the biggest star at ESPN. What he says goes. That was confirmed recently when he had Max Kellerman kicked off of "First Take."
On Thursday, Stephen A talked about sending Max and his stale takes packing. He started off by confirming the rumors that he was the one who wanted to make the co-host change.
"The rumor’s accurate in terms of me wanting him off the show. Let’s get that out the way. Yes, I did."
