Stephen A. Smith has always been extremely opinionated when it comes to all things related to the NBA world. Overall, he is one of the biggest names in the entire sports world. While there are a lot of people who do not like him, you cannot discount all that he has built. Moreover, he tries his best to give his honest opinion, even if the viewer doesn't believe him. At this point, he is carrying ESPN on his back, and it has been a pleasure to watch. Now, Smith must navigate the NBA offseason, which could be packed with moves.

For instance, the Washington Wizards and Phoenix Suns engaged in a trade involving Bradley Beal and Chris Paul. Subsequently, Beal will get to play with Kevin Durant and Devin Booker. Additionally, Paul will likely be waived by the Wizards and become a free agent. Of course, much of the discourse is currently centered around the Suns and their chances of winning a title next year. In Stephen A.'s mind, however, people need to pump the brakes immediately.

Stephen A. Gets Honest

This past season, the biggest issue with the Phoenix Suns was their complete and utter lack of depth. It was very clear during the series against the Denver Nuggets, and it remains a problem. “Is there any defense whatsoever?" Stephen A. asked. "And the depth, that definitely is a question mark as well.” Overall, these are some very poignant critiques of the team. There is absolutely no indication that this team will be any good, especially with these glaring holes throughout the lineup.

Sure, the Suns can be a great regular-season team, but the postseason will be a question mark. Perhaps they will get some ring chasers on a veteran minimum, but that still remains to be seen. Let us know your thoughts on the Bradley Beal trade, in the comments section down below. Additionally, stay tuned to HNHH for the latest news and updates from around the sports world.
