Stephen A. Smith: ‘I Would Have Won’ the OJ Simpson Trial

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith reacted Monday on “First Take” to ESPN documentary “O.J.: Made In America.”

Smith claims that although he is not a lawyer, he could have won the O.J. Simpson trial and sent the former football star to prison.

“I believe that the evidence was clear,” Smith said. “I have often been on the record saying anybody can call me what they want to call me, I have profound respect for the late Johnnie Cochran, God rest his soul, but it might be the cockiest thing I have ever said. Christopher Darden and Marcia Clark did a absolutely horrendous job as prosecutors. Because if it were me, there’s no way in hell Johnnie Cochran would have beaten me with the evidence they had. I’m not even a lawyer. There is no way you would have put 12 jurors in front of me with that evidence and I would have lost even to Johnnie Cochran. I would have won that trial.”
