I hope NBA will not allow to win the most popular player to win the MVP, but the most deserving. Max is right this time!

This is crazy! These guys make money by discussing LeBron and sensationalizing every thing against. They flip flop so much. Lebron shouldn’t be compared against anyone, he understands and pay respect to all the greats that came before him. He strives to be better every day. #StopHate

Perfect team for anthony Davis is Portland honestly imagine if dame n cj had AD to lob to when they getting double or imagine if AD had dame n cj he could kick it to when he getting tripled team in the paint knock down deep 3 point shooters who could create they own shot from anywhere

LONZO CANT BE EFFECTIVE IF HE ISN'T HANDLING THE BALL. HE IS A TERRIBLE OUTSIDE SHOOTER. HE WILL BE EXPOSED EVEN MORE WITHOUT THE BALL. LEBRON IS A MEDIOCRE OUTSIDE SHOOTER WITH BALL OFF THE BALL ,NO PUN INTENDED, IT WILL BE A NIGHTMARE FOR THE LAKERS. THEY HAVE NO OFFENSE FROM THE CENTER POSITION.SO WHERE IS THE OFFENSE COMING FROM? RONDO ISCNOT A GOOD SHOOTER AND STEPHENSON IS A BENCH PLAYER. IT WILL PUT GREAT DEMAND ON KUZMA AND INGRAM. THIS IS NOT A GOOD MIX.

I am serious as a heart attack, I want a meeting soon and am tired of living in some bubble. My personal space has been violated over and over, these people are rude, have team members that are doing way too much, stop involving my family members, keep them out of it and cut off communication from the bad People to them, I have no money, no life, no travels, no damn freedom! Someone should want to speak with me soon after everything I have gone through with cyberbulling, cyberpunks and this crazy wrongful Agenda! 1. I want house THAT IS peaceful 2. Someone should step up and talk to me, U owe me 💰. 3. Get out of my personal space and stop demanding all these concessions! 4. Get her a Taxi and not through me, if I am able to get a car, I will take her to train or whatever just to cut out the middle man. I need the middle man GONE FOR GOOD! 5. I AM just one woman and their is a TEAM of U. 6. Stop throwing men in my face this is not how U start a romance, relationship or connection, this is my job not a club or market, whomever is spying on me get out of my personal space because U are violating my civil rights. 7. Stop being an arrogant F Face, these two know I am not interested in them, only one dude and if I don't get the chance to meet him, I still will never ever find myself liking U two SOB's AGAIN!!! Meeting soon ..... please I need a life and chance to find my own damn man, don't like Y'all picks, accept for 🐈 Daddy, all the rest SUCK!

Lebron's career will be like those WB cartoon characters when they run off a cliff. He's in that stage where he's still floating in the air, but he's already over the hill. If not this season, definitely next season gravity will kick in.

Out of subject: Can @espn tell @maxkellerman to never say again that #soccer is boring & inferior to #football. It turned off my friends & I. We stopped watching @firsttake asap. As immigrants we learned to love #nflfootball which we had no interest in. Statements like his are not good for @espn

I don't anyone messing with ME in this 🏠 PERIOD!!!! I tired of coming home to have so one giving me a vibe or expectations I should be doing what they want me to do!!!! This is HARASSMENT as far I am concern, particularly in my private space and what not! I am done with THESE two VERY DEMANDING gentlemen and U know the two, one is short coming from God Forsaken Small Town and the other U know very well! These people are doing too much and I have sacrificed already too damn much of my life for NOTHING. I would like these people to scram, hit the road, go away, get U some business, find someone else, just leave me the heck ALONE! THIS IS GETTING OLD ALREADY, I don't want anyone waking me up in the middle of the night anymore as well.

Randle will get you 20/10 averages and play defense. Rondo is very good but randle is a jumper away from being pretty much unstoppable. The dude just bullies the fuck out of everyone, is highly efficient in the paint and can run the floor. You wanna bully gsw but let go an enforcer like that. The lakers were foolish to let him walk in this dry market where it was unlikely his rfa would have been run up and by that time kawhi didnt look likely and pg13 was gone . You cant pay lbj 38.5 million and not start thinking about value. Randle would certainly be a better value than pg13 @ 35M and kawhi has a season to go and a bunch of fed flags to move past. If that guy gets a jumper and then goes to gsw to replace dg when he gets too expensive, it aint going to look good. He and davis will be a force on both ends. For 9 mill. Thats how you do it, capitalize on a deal.

I remember when Anthony Davis was supposed to have been the best player in the league in 3 years, and that was 5 years ago 🙄 No one will eclipse the king as the best all around player in the league until he retires! And when he retires he will have had the longest prime of any athlete in any sport!

He's an other skip bayass who hates on certain player or team & never let's up. The hating is getting old & it drives sports fans away from these shows to media sports talk shows instead.

Both of these guys talk so far out their rear end it gives me a migrane. Steven Smith is especially one of those individuals who loves to hear himself talk. He cannot be wrong even when he is. I cant stand ego that big from such a tiny little man.

I thought AD was better than Hardin last year. He is the best All around player in the league. He rebounds, plays great defense, and can score as well as anyone. Curry, Hardin, Durant, and Westbrook are no where near Davis defense. People need to count defense too. LeBron has been getting snubbed on MVP. KD, Hardin, Westbrook could not have taken Cleveland to the finals last year. LeBron should of gotten MVP last year. It was his best year other than one year in Miami.

I think they create this show as a real debate were in everyone has a side that they are given and they have to debate that side. The only thing is they don’t tell you they are each given a side to debate as if they really believe in that side. Like debate class but they make it seem as though they really believe in whichever argument they are given to support
