ESPN sports analyst Stephen A. Smith (pictured), who is known for having diarrhea of the mouth, has denied using a racial slur on Thursday’s edition of the sports talk show “First Take,” reports the New York Daily News.

While yakking it up with NBA baller Dahntay Jones about Kobe Bryant’s status for the regular season, it appeared as though Smith quickly uttered, “N**ga, please!”

”Opening night, Kobe Bryant is going to miss it because ‘my foot is sprained?’ Are you crazy?  N**ga, please!”

Watch the video of it here:

Although the slur is clearly heard on the footage, Smith later appeared on the show to vehemently deny his use of the racial slur. The 45-year-old Bronx native claims that the alleged verbal faux pas was not heard correctly and since he is from New York, he tends to speak “very, very fastly, and sometimes … my words are misconstrued and I get it”:

“I did not say the things reported that I said,” Smith contends.  “Hopefully I will not have to address this again…. If I were to have said anything like that, I would have instantly issued an apology.”

Well if memory serves us correctly — and it does — Smith also let one rip last year when discussing LeBron James on ESPN. At the time, he reportedly used the N-word.

Despite his denial, the “phantom” controversial slip-up this go-round was reportedly edited out when the show was rebroadcast.
