Stephen A. Smith calls Rosebar the 'Hottest Nightclub in D.C.' as he Clowns Wizards

John Wall has responded to accusations that he is inside Rosebar too much. The Wizards star took to Instagram live to address the news.

"I do. I go to Rosebar on Saturdays. What? Not supposed to party once in a blue while?" Wall asked. "The fu*k. Where you be at? Opera? Living Room?"

Wall did acknowledge the humor in the entire situation.

"When they put Rosebar on the jersey I was dying. That was classic," Wall said. 


A day after tearing into the Washington Wizards on ESPN's "First Take," Stephen A. Smith continued his verbal annihilation Thursday--mentioning D.C. nightclub Rosebar as a primary area of concern.  

"The situation with John Wall is so bad...I'm getting pictures of Wall off the court. Where people are seeing him," Smith started. "They're bringing up Rosebar, one of the most popular nightclubs, if not the most popular nightclub in D.C." 

The clubbing narrative kick-started before the season when Wall tweeted "Lol I’m grown shawty and do wat I want lol...worry bout urself," to a girl who demanded he stay out of Rosebar. 

Wall doubled down on the sentiment when asked about the exchange by reporters. 

"You got a 9-to-5, what you do after your 9-to-5? You're not about to sit in the house all day. I'm a grown man and I can do what I want to," Wall said. "I know what I do and bring to the table, and that's 110 percent effort."

Now, the "Rosebar narrative," which started from a Twitter joke, has made it all the way to ESPN. 

As far as Stephen A. Smith is concerned though, he's going to make it inside the nightclub.

"I think I've been to the Rosebar once but I'm not sure. I know it's the hottest nightclub in D.C. I will tell you this...I'm going," Smith said. 

Smith tore into the Wizards the day after they lost 119-100 to the Dallas Mavericks, falling to 2-8 start, good for the second-worst record in the NBA

"It's time for a blowup," the ESPN 'First Take' host said, beginning a long, conspicuous diatribe. "It didn't work, Ernie Grunfeld. It didn't work."
