Why do people hate Stephen A. Smith?

The outspoken sports commentator, former Philadelphia Inquirer columnist and all around scourge of a whole lot of people gets a whole lot of guff here in Philadelphia, and elsewhere.Not the least of which are his being annually taunted at the NBA draft.See video of it in 2006…

And 2007…

So, even after being canned by the Inquirer and derided elsewhere, he launched a blog to defend himself, I suppose, or at least take media coverage of his into his own hands. What gives? Why do people despise this man so much?
