Pretty amusing too.
I'm not saying he won't be able to get a response.
I'm saying the response won't likely further Mariotti's argument.
Stephen A Smith and Marty York, while opinionated and often ridiculous, are intelligent basketball minds to some degree. They would likely be interested in explaining themselves and discussing their work.
Mariotti is a douchebag. I don't think a guy who is allegedly a huge prick is going to get engaged in a spirited debate about one off hand comment he made that really had nothing to do with the article.
I'm not doubting SJ's abilities to elicit a response from writers. I'm doubting Mariotti's abilities to back up that statement.
