Yahoo! Hires Kenny "The Jet" Smith As NBA Writer

Thursday, September 27, 2007


Yahoo!, who picked up blogger extradonaire J-Mottram last week, has hired NBA Analyst Kenny Smith as a Senior NBA Analyst. Smith will provide the content the Steve Kerr used to last year and will still stay on at his other gigs with TBS, MSG, and Sirius.

“Steve generated a lot of traffic for us, so this was a role we definitely wanted filled before the start of the season,” said Yahoo Sports Exec Editor Dave Morgan. “Kenny’s obviously great in his TV roles, but we think there’s additional sides of his personality that will come out with us. He may not write as much as Steve did, but you’ll definitely see a lot of video from Kenny.” (Via SBD)
We can only hope that Mottram is his boss and forces him to write about the dumb stuff Charles Barkley does on a daily basis. Oh wait....that's me during the NBA season.

off topic, but did anyone else just hear Wilbon say on PTI that Kornheiser was "Slurping Boise State" after he picked them to win?

I can't wait for the Yahoo halftime show, where Kenny makes fun of Jamie for being fat and sucking at basketball and Jamie smiles and defers politely
