As for Undisputed, I like the show and Shannon but not that much. It honestly just makes me want to just First Take instead.
Honestly, no matter what sport they talk about, it honestly seems like Stephen A doesn't know THAT MUCH about the sport. He comes off as that older dude at work who tries to talk to you about all the sports and he's only able to talk about what he read in the paper or saw on the news.
He doesn't seem to know any sport at a proficient level.
Like he can't break a play down, he can't really tell you anything that the casual basketball fan doesn't already know or see for themselves.
It's nothing special and it makes me think, WHY does he host a daily sports show? He's not out breaking stories and doesn't have any connections or sources and he isn't a sports savant and he never played a sport.
So... what is it? That he yells and people find him entertaining? I honestly legitimately feel like he's basically trolling us at this point.
"Let me tell you something, this brother can ball"
Notice he NEVER gets into specifics? Compare his analysis with Max. Max knows his stuff and doesn't pretend to, if he doesn't ala SAS.
