Mychal Thompson Calls Out Stephen A. Smith For Controversial Wilt Chamberlain Take

Klay Thompson’s dad, Mychal Thompson, had some harsh words for Stephen A. Smith on Twitter after he admitted that he’d remove Wilt Chamberlain from his top 10 all-time list and replace him with Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry.

“Good lord the basketball community, they ready to take me to the guillotine for saying this,” Smith explained on ESPN’s First Take. “I wanna emphasize this: I know how phenomenal Wilt Chamberlain is. I’m only holding one thing against Wilt Chamberlain. When we think about you and your era, we constantly think about Bill Russell and 11 rings. 11 to two. You can’t mention Chamberlain without bringing up Russell, and when you bring up Russell, you bring up 11 rings.”
