Sam Smith Thinks Joakim Noah is Right About Cleveland

Posted By on Wed, Apr 28, 2010 at 11:20 AM


Sam Smith was on Tony Kornheiser's radio show yesterday, and before he got into talking actual basketball, Smith made it a point to offer his potshots at Cleveland while talking on the phone at the Ritz Carlton. For anyone who reads Smith's brand of schlock journalism every once in awhile, what follows is not going to be surprising.

Sam Smith: By the way, it's the first sunny day I've experienced in Cleveland since '89.

Kornheiser: I'm sure you've eaten at the place, Johnny's downtown. It's really good.

Sam Smith: Yeah. There's only three restaurants downtown, so I have.

Korneisher: It's really good though.

Sam Smith: Uh, yeah. It's ok.

Keep it classy, Sam.
