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

A Cavaliers fan compiled Smith’s choice to win the NBA Finals each year starting in 2011. Smith is 0 for 6. That fan turned the botched picks into a funny video.

Here is the breakdown of the last NBA Finals:

2011: Dallas beats Miami.

2012: Miami beats Oklahoma City.

2013: Miami beats San Antonio.

2014: San Antonio beats Miami.

2015: Golden State beats Cleveland.

2016: Cleveland beats Golden State.

There are two common denominators to that list: LeBron James played in the Finals each time and Smith picked wrong every single time. That’s not easy to do on both counts.

This is the video:
