That’s Stephen A. Smith on the right, shown interviewing Tommy “Hit Man” Hearns during the 2nd half of last night’s Lakers/Pistons game at the Palace.

Though Stephen A. neglected to pester Tommy about the child abuse charges the latter is facing, this wasn’t the worst job of sideline reportage ever seen or heard. Though not quite Jim Gray, Smith will have to try pretty hard to top Al Trautwig’s recent chat with Roger Waters of Pink Floyd.
