Glenn Robinson and Stephen A. Smith have disliked each other for a long time, dating to the forward’s time with the 76ers while Smith was a columnist in Philadelphia.

Complex reports that the First Take star discussed his dislike for Robinson on a recent appearance on The Karen Hunter Show on satellite radio.

"I saw this man march lock step with what [former Bucks Coach] George Karl wanted to do ... but Randy Ayers becomes the head coach of the Philadelphia 76ers ... you treated this man like trash, but you'll come and talk to reporters about how brothers need to facilitate brothers being hired, but you had one and how'd you treat him?"

Robinson offered his side of the story to TMZ Sports and suggested the two settle their differences in the ring.

Smith would probably be wise to turn the offer down, as it is never wise to fight a man who is unironically known as “Big Dog.”
