Did anyone else think that Stephen A. Smith did a very poor job as GM for his Team? Surely he had rocks in his head to select Eva Longoria as his Coach knowing that she'd have to go face to face with Queen Latifah. It was no contest as Longoria was clearly out-gunned in the match-up.

Prior to this Game, I had a lot of respect for Smith's knowledge of the game and Rules. Most people consider his opinion second to only that of Jim Rome.

Clearly Smith knew that selecting Eva would cause the officials to have all of their eyes on her, thus allowing the rest of the team to get away with lots of fouling.

I was thinking he was using the cardboard cutout of her in a "Major League" sort of motivation technique.
