Band Smash Mouth calls Francesa a 'dumb ass' for ripping Curry



Mike Francesa is known for being opinionated, but it seems now he’s drawn the ire of… Smash Mouth?


The band took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the Sports Pope on Monday after Francesa fired shots at Stephen Curry for his celebration after scoring on LeBron James the night before.


“Curry looked ridiculous on that play,” Francesca said. “Listen, do you know how many times LeBron James has scored over every one of them and not shown them up? It just shows you that Curry doesn’t have a lot of class as a player. To me, he acts like a clown on the court.

Steph Curry may not have the Sports Pope on his side, but he does have Smash Mouth.

“You know how many times LeBron has dunked over him or embarrassed him and scored over him and not shown him up? For him to do that, the one time he scores over him, is just ridiculous. I thought that was really classless on Curry’s part. I really did.”


Talk about pulling no punches. And Smash Mouth decided to respond in kind.


“Mike Francesa is a dumb ass POINT BLANK!!!!” the band tweeted. “Most off base take EVER!”
