Stephen A. Smith and IMG Academy in Florida have organized a basketball camp, and the price tag is a whopping $2,899.
The thing is, Smith is a commentator for ESPN, not a hooper, and he averaged a reported 1.5 points per game while playing for Winston-Salem State University.
So, naturally people were shocked that his camp would charge so much, and they let their feelings be known on Twitter.
Almost time for camp and so excited to be working with IMG Academy to host 10 boys and girls from the nearby Boys & Girls Club of Manatee County. We hope that through this beautiful game, we inspire these kids to grow as athletes and as people!

“Those poor kids going to Stephen A Smith camp…. I’m not even gonna make the jokes,” someone tweeted.
“You just devalued IMG Academy,” another tweet read. “No way in hell they have a dude who never played high school or could draw up a play run a so called elite program. IMG shame on you guys.”
“No way you’re teaching them how to shoot ??,” someone else wrote.
What’s your thoughts on Stephen A. charging so much for his camp when he hasn’t played since college?
