Smith has been wrong about every NBA Finals since 2011

Based on this, you might want to bet against the team ESPN's Stephen A. Smith picks to win the NBA Finals.

Hofbrauhaus will host ESPN for filming during the NBA Finals as the Cleveland Cavaliers host the Golden State Warriors.

In 2011, he picked the Heat to knock off the Mavericks. However, Smith has been wrong about the NBA Finals each year since 2011. The next year, Smith guaranteed the Oklahoma City Thunder would beat the Heat.

Anyway, the 2017 NBA Finals are set, with Golden State and Cleveland set to face off once again.

In 2014, he picked the Heat to beat the Spurs in their finals rematch; the Spurs won this time. The latter won in six games.

In 2016, he said the Warriors would beat the Cavs; this time, the Cavs beat the Warriors in their rematch.

It's nearly impressive how wrong Smith has been recently. I'll give you a hint, I have won as many National Basketball Association titles as he has correct predictions in the last six year. Who should you pick?

Perhaps my favorite part of the above headline is the fact that Stephen A. Smith would most likely never use any of those words.
