Stephen A. Smith Bails on Vacation to Rip Ousted Knicks Exec Phil Jackson: ‘Dammit, It’s About Time!’ (Mediaite)

Since the team’s last NBA Finals appearance in 1999, joyous days have been few and far between for New York Knicks fans. Wednesday, though, certainly qualifies as one — given that the team and their embattled President Phil Jackson parted ways.

Stephen A. Smith apparently couldn’t wait to weigh in on the news. So he cut short a vacation just to appear on First Take to rant about the maligned former Knicks boss.

“Dammit, it’s about time!” Smith said. “Long overdue!… Thank the good Lord that it is over!”
