Stephen A. Smith vs Craig James
Stephen A. Smith
Fact File: ESPN NBA reporter/analyst/debater... well, actually he's not around that much anymore
Why He's Here: Stephen A. is a hard man to find these days. After the mistake that was Quite Frankly and his period of overexposure, Smith faded away. Somehow, he has a job hosting shows on ESPN Radio in New York and Los Angeles and still makes the sporadic TV appearance appearing on First Take, subbing for Jim Rome, and in other various nether regions of the leader. It's enough for us to give Screamin' A. a place on the list.
Round 1 Result: Defeated Stuart Scott 51.45% - 48.55%
Round 2 Result: Defeated Tony Siragusa 63.91% - 36.09%
Fact File: ESPN college football game and studio analyst
Why He's Here: James became an integral part of one of college football's biggest stories when his son Adam's allegations of being locked in a closet led to Mike Leach's firing at Texas Tech. This led to an awkward series of revelations made by Leach about Craig's meddling in his program, lawsuits, and other developments. ESPN was put in the position of having one of their analysts be an integral part of the controversy. How did Craig James respond? Well, rumor has it he wants to be a Senator of course. And now that his coverup and controversy briefly resulted in the "suspension" of respected CFB writer Bruce Feldman, James is more despised than ever.
