Stephen A.: I was wrong about Celtics
During an interview on SportsCenter on Tuesday morning, NBA analyst Stephen A. Smith said he was wrong about the Celtics when he predicted before the Eastern Conference finals that they would be steamrolled by the Heat.
"A lot of people, including myself, thought that this series would be over in 5 games," Smith said in his mea culpa. "The Boston Celtics have made us all out to be liars. I personally on national television need to apologize to them. I thought they were just injured and didn't have anything. I was wrong, OK, they have a lot and they're handling their business."
The Eastern Conference finals is tied at two games apiece with Game 5 on tap tonight. Smith predicts the Heat will win Game 5.
