Stephen A. Smith has been one of the most prominent voices when it comes to the sports world. Overall, he is so famous in the space because of his hilarious rants.

These rants typically go viral on social media, much to the delight of ESPN. However, he has also been going viral thanks to his new podcast, "Know Mercy."
Over the past week or so, Stephen A. has been tasked with giving his opinion on the Ja Morant situation. At this point, it feels like Morant is in the news every single day. Moreover, with Morant's strip club photos being leaked on the internet, the discourse around him has only ramped up. As for Smith, he finds the leaking of these images to be in poor taste. Additionally, while touching on the topic during an episode of "Know Mercy," Smith revealed exactly why he doesn't like strip clubs.
Stephen A. Explains His Preferences
"Now, I'm not one for strip clubs," Smith began. "I'm a bit older in this day and age, and even when I was younger, I've never had a proclivity for strip clubs. I never liked the smell." Of course, there are a lot of people out there who would disagree. Although, this is definitely a matter of personal preference. Strip clubs are not for everyone, and that is more than okay. However, for many throughout the NBA, the strip club is an essential part of every road trip.
When it comes to Ja Morant, however, it is clear that he probably won't be frequenting these establishments again, anytime soon. As it stands, he is seeking help through a counseling program in Florida. He is trying to get his head right, as he cannot afford to lose his NBA career. Hopefully, he is able to improve himself and get back on track. Let us know what you thought of Stephen A.'s comments, down below. Additionally, stay tuned to HNHH for more sports news.
