Stephen spent his childhood in the Hollis section of Queens, living with his four older sisters, and a younger brother who passed away in 1992. He went to Thomas Edison High School, after which he enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Technology, but only for a year before receiving a basketball scholarship for Winston-Salem State University. While there, he was a part of the team coached by Clarence Gaines, and was also a columnist for the university newspaper, The News Argus.

Having realized that his passion was writing and reporting instead of a basketball career, Stephen focused on his penmanship. He first worked for the Winston-Salem Journal, and the Greensboro News and Record, before joining the New York Daily News.

However, he made his breakthrough in 1994 by joining The Philadelphia Inquirer, and became National Basketball (NBA) columnist for the Philadelphia 76ers. He remained in this position until 2007, which only increased his net worth, but was then removed from his position, following supposedly controversial political comments.However, he returned to his position in 2010, after a court order to reinstate Stephen to his old position.

After his successful start as a writer, Stephen managed to transfer his work to television, and he joined CNN/SI cable network in 1999, however, the network ceased operations three years later. Stephen then found a place with the ESPN network, and since then has become an influential sports analyst and host. He had his own show which aired from 2005 until 2007, which added a considerable amount to his net worth, and has also been featured in a number of sports shows, including “ESPN First Take” (2007-2017), “Rome Is Burning” (2008-2011), “Mike & Mike” (2011-2017), and “SportsCenter” (2017), among others, all of which increased his net worth.

He also launched a radio career in the mid- ‘2000s, when he became the host of a weekday noon to a 2pm radio show on WEPN. Two years later, the schedule of his show was moved two hours forward, while it also gained a national syndication through ESPN Radio, though only the second hour of the show. In 2009, Stephen was hired by the Fox Sports Radio as their on-air contributor, and the following year was promoted to morning show host of Fox Sports Radio, and was actually the first to predict the signing of LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade to the Miami Heat in the 2010 free agency.

In 2013, Stephen left ESPN for Sirius XM Radio, and joined Chris Russo’s Mad Dog Sports Channel, but after four years he returned to the ESPN, and his two hour show can be heard on WEPN in New York, KSPN in Los Angeles, Sirius XM’s ESPN channel, and also through syndication around the US.

Stephen has also benefited from his work as an actor; he made his debut in 2007 as Allan in the romantic comedy “I Think I Love My Life”, written and directed by Chris Rock who also starred in the film, next to Gina Torres and Kerry Washington. Stephen also appeared in the soap opera “General Hospital” (2016-2017), as Brick, boosting his net worth somewhat.

Regarding his personal life, Stephen has successfully managed to keep hidden all of his most intimate details, including marital status and number of children, if any, therefore no reliable information is available about the private affairs of this star journalist, TV host and actor, other than that he is believed to be single.
