Smith appeared on the Barstool Sports podcast Bussin With The Boys with former NFL stars Taylor Lewan and Will Compton this week.

And the fiery personality spoke about when he was an NBA beat reporter at The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Stephen A. revealed that he had access to knowledge about the NSFW secrets concerning the players and coaches in the league.

“I’m a beat writer at the time, so you get to know everybody … you don’t just know the athletes … you know their families, their friends … all of that stuff,” he said.

“So just imagine you’re covering sports and you’re dealing with 20-year-olds, late 20s and early 30s and imagine the stuff that you’re making all this money and you find yourself getting into because you’re living a life you that most people don’t get to live.

“Think about the trouble that brings.”

Smith then revealed separate romantic affairs that he knew about during his beat writing tenure without naming anyone specifically.

“You think I didn’t know that you got traded because you were f***ing the same girl as the coach — and the coach wanted you gone?” he asked.

“You think I didn’t know the coach couldn’t stand you because you tried to come onto his wife and his wife was interested?”

“Do you think that I don’t know that you really really can’t stand this dude because guess what, you wouldn’t trade with this team because this former executive used to screw around with your wife and you didn’t want anybody to know.”
