It doesn't take much to get ESPN's Stephen A. Smith heated during an episode of First Take. But the man appeared to be absolutely furious during today's episode.

While analyzing the latest game involving Smith's beloved New York Knicks - a 122-102 loss to the Indiana Pacers - Smith when off on the team. He screamed at the camera, telling the Knicks to "get it together" and said they "look like trash" right now.

"What the hell is going on New York Knicks? I'm pissed off! Get it together! Y'all look like trash!" Stephen A. said. "12-13 on the season after the year y'all had last year? What the hell is wrong with y'all? You ain't that damn good - stop acting like it. Play together, play team ball. Figure it out. Stop being an average defensive team."

First Take host Molly Qerim had a lot of fun seeing Stephen A. Smith get so heated. And she wasn't the only one:

"If I had a forum like this to yell at my favorite sports team, I would be yelling at the Detroit Lions like every damn day," one fan said on Twitter.

"Stephen A yells at himself in the mirror for practice," another fan joked.

But the New York Knicks deserve most of the criticism they're getting. They haven't won back-to-back games since October. They currently rank in the bottom half of the league for points scored and points allowed.

If the Knicks keep losing like this, Stephen A. Smith might find a way to go even more ballistic.
