FIRST Take co-host Molly Qerim participated in a roast session on Stephen A. Smith.
In the first segment, the hosts of First Take, along with basketball analyst Jay Williams, covered the NBA playoffs.
Stephen A., who is a big Knicks fan, has been following Williams’ performances in the upcoming playoff series with the Miami Heat.
Williams rebuked the 55-year-old personality who believes the Knicks will reach the NBA Finals.
“We’re going to talk about it,” Smith shouted at Williams.
The next segment of the First Take Show was the NFL Draft.
They brought with them former NFL players Keyshawn Johnson and Ryan Clark.
And Clark noted the animosity between Smith and former Duke point guard Williams.
“I’m so glad Stephen A. doesn’t treat me like a former Duke basketball player because for some reason he doesn’t get along with these guys, whether it’s JJ Redick or J-Will.”
That forced Smith to answer.

“I get along with everyone, but you know how cerebral these Duke players can be.
“They come in here like they invented the game and they have to be reminded that they didn’t.”
Qerim would go on to toast her co-host.
“Be thankful he doesn’t treat you like the host of First Take if he’s not listening,” the 39-year-old told Smith.
Clark then replied, “Oh wow.”
Smith remained seemingly speechless but with a playful smile.
