YouTube/Stephen A. Smith“Once again, I’m singing that same old dance it’s none of our damn business who Anthony Edwards is screwing around with, who he impregnated.
“He has a relationship with this woman and she put him on blast. She took text messages and revealed them to the public. I’m starting to wonder what repercussions somebody can have for having their privacy violated? That’s what I’m wondering about.
“We live in a society, ladies and gentlemen, if Anthony Edwards wanted her to have an abortion, that’s his business. We have pro-choice and pro-lifers all over the country.”

Instagram/Paige JordaeSmith, 56, began yelling when he said he wanted to talk about basketball, but instead had to cover Edwards’ off-the-court matters “because she violated their private affairs.”
“She is a woman, she is free to do what she wants with her own body,” Smith said. “… If Anthony Edwards does not want her to have the child, that’s his business… I am not somebody who is a supporter of abortion, but I am a supporter of pro-choice.
“This is not for us to judge Anthony Edwards… the issue is, she put him on blast. She revealed private messages. That’s what appears to be the case, which compelled and forced him to come out with a statement addressing the situation because of the manner in which he spoke to her about his issues.”
