Shouldn’t this be filed under the “awesome” category?
There are many words you could used to describe Staphen A flipping the finger on camera, but “awesome” is not one. You need to think about what it takes to do such a stupid, classless move is nothing but a temporary lack of self-control. And, I bet that, regardless what is said, Stephen A is totally embarrassed.
A man who has responsibility to the network, sponsors, but most of all the kids watching NBA games believe is acceptable behavior while dreaming of being like Stephen A.. I feel certain that he is very regretful of his response, as he should be..
As a broadcaster, his responsibilities are making the game more enjoyable for those watching while teaching viewers about how the game should be played. It is a matter of showing what it takes to make it as a NBA player and commentator, on and off the court.
This was awesome. Giving somebody the finger is not a “classless” act. Its just a finger. As far as the kids watching, none of them care so why should you? It was a humorus interacrion between two individuals talking about sports. People who make life too serious like you need to get over it.

You’re absolutely right. I bet he does feel embarrassed. There’s a comic on a local sports talkshow named QCB that I’m gonna quote: “I can’t stand thugs…”
The only thing this activity promotes is more thuggish activity.
