ESPN’s Cari Champion

Defends Stephen A. Smith

… After NFL Brainfart

Don’t worry Stephen A. Smith … your colleagues got your back! 

The ESPN star went viral on Thursday because of his DISASTROUS pre-game analysis of the Chargers game … which included a bunch of guys who weren’t even playing. 

It was a mess … and HILARIOUS! 

He mentioned Hunter Henry as a key player, while noting the way he’s played this year. The problem? Hunter’s been out all season with a torn ACL. 

Stephen also mentioned Derrick Johnson as a player to watch for the Chiefs — despite the fact he hasn’t been on the roster since 2017. Good times! 

So, when we saw ESPN’s Cari Champion at LAX, we had to ask … WHAT HAPPENED?!

“Stephen A. is a very smart man. He has a lot going on and he is extremely smart,” Champion said. 

“I think Stephen A. has a lot to do … a lot on his plate … he knew exactly what he was talking about … we all make mistakes.”

She added, “[You] try doing live television 20,000 hours a day!”

For his part, Stephen A. called the situation a “brain-lock moment” and clowned himself on Twitter. 

“It’s called a MISTAKE because I was think of Virgil Green, but mentioned Hunter because I was multi-tasking. That’s what happens when you’re doing a thousand things.”

“But I don’t blame you if you told me to “Stay Off The Weeeeeeedddddddd.!” That was a brain-lock moment.”
