STEPHEN A. Smith’s suit was dragged into an Aaron Rodgers debate in a hilarious altercation on Wednesday’s First Take.
The show’s host, Molly Qerim, took the opportunity to poke fun at her 55-year-old ESPN co-star, saying he “probably didn’t pay for it.”
Qerim, 38, often takes a swipe at Smith’s fame and big paychecks.
Stephen A. is considered one of the highest paid sports broadcasters in the world.
And Molly couldn’t help taunting him as NFL analyst Keyshawn Johnson commented on Smith’s suit.
The First Take crew discussed what the Green Bay Packers should ask the New York Jets in exchange for Rodgers.
Johnson insisted the Jets don’t have to give up their 13th pick in the 2023 NFL Draft to win the four-time MVP, considering he could leave the team after just one season.
But Smith firmly disagreed.
“If you didn’t have to pay for that $3,000 suit you’re wearing, would you pay for it?” Johnson then asked Stephen A.
The ESPN star wore a lustrous black suit with huge peaked lapels on Thursday.
Immediately after Johnson’s remark, Qerim intervened.
“He probably didn’t pay for it,” she said.
“He probably got it for free.
Stephen A. gave Molly a sideways glance and replied, “I paid for this, thanks.”
Smith had to face Qerim’s roast again after she told the sportscaster to “start listening to me” on Wednesday.
Her words came after Smith forgot the reason for Anthony Davis’ absence in the matchup with the Houston Rockets later that day.
Up front, Molly had said the Lakers are still not allowing Davis to play in back-to-back games while the forward recovers from a foot injury.
