Anyone else noticed Stephen A has just started acknowledging LeBron in the recent days ?

Some of these analysts wishing they chose Lebron as their guy 😂
The Sordid Singer
I enjoy Max & Lebron is Top 3 to ever do it but what Max is marveling over? It’s literally 40% through 20 games....🤷🏼‍♂️ Granted it’s a solid percentage, but it’s such a limited amount of data: 52/130 I don’t see why it’s even worth discussing? There has to be other topics of greater importance...🤦🏼‍♂️

King James PRACTICES during the Off-season and, keeps his Body in Shape.,He continues to Work Hard for his Team
The Lean Ranger!
Lebron has always been a ok 3poiny shooter if you look at his career #’s obviously he scores in other areas more efficient but he shoots atleast 34% for his career and he’s had seasons where he’s taking a lot or decent amount of 3’s per game the media just decides what narrative they wanna focus on with lebron because in the past despite whatever the numbers were they just were running with he couldn’t shoot..
Jordan Floyd Brady
Do they forget that freak is only 25 or 26 how long did it take for LeBron to shoot the three at a good percent come on now you’re supposed to be the expert

Man all giannis needs is to perfect the freethrow line jump shot, he doesn't need to shoot 37% from 3 on 5+ attempts he should take 1 or 2 3's per game and perfect a 15-18ft jump shot if ge perfects that jump shot he will hands down be the best player in the league cause he will be unstoppable
Deon Morrison

I’m just not a fan of turning all the bigs into 3 shooters. They’re forcing Giannis to be a shooter, it’s not him naturally. That man pounds the paint. Same with Embid, why on earth would you turn him into a shooter and leave the paint? Steven said it, it’s not them.. it’s always been natural for Lebron though.

Is everyone so stupid they can’t figure out basketball skill is relative. Players were all better in the 90s so you would be shooting on better defenders, to make a quick example.

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 2 Peter 1:16 And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. 1 John 5:20 Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2 If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. 1 John 4:15 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus. Philippians 2:5 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one. John 10:28-30 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 1 John 4:9 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. John 15:12 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect. 1 Peter 3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Colossians 3:15

This is a lie. God has many sons and daughters. If not, why are people referred to as being the children of God? Flesh and blood is finite. That 2k year old Jesus can not live forever. His spirit can, through a modern body. Look for him. He’s on scene and alive today. All you have to do, is examine the scriptures, look around for the same conditions and plug the actors in the right positions, according to their resemblance to the scriptures. Jesus is here on earth today. You refuse to listen to him, because he’s not white looking.

I don't agree with Max when he says there should be 1 MVP including the playoffs because that's just like saying Joel Embid could have a break through season averaging 42/12/4 but then the Sixers don't make the playoffs and he still gets crowned the MVP even though he didn't go to the playoffs. Like i know that would probably rarely even happen where that type of player with that stat doesn't make the playoff but i mean it's just something you have to question.

It's very simple, Lebron has figure out basketball as whole, and for us watching it's amazing, we are looking at greatness play. He makes it look easy but it is absolutely not. He has become the apex predator right now and only the limit of his imagination can stop him. The fact that he not only he gets buckets but his teammates gets buckets, that's a dangerous combination. Lakers are now the most dominating team we have in the NBA in 2021. Whomever knocks them out will have to outplayed them, which means the league needs to update to 2.0 real quick to stop them and for us is awesome to be able to see this manifest on the court.

is this the moment ? espn finally admits there's nobody they can choose to compete with Lebron ? After all these years, and you realize until now? I knew a king when I saw him beach slap curry twice in 2016 finals.

The thing is Lebron after losing athleticism in still more athletic than 90% of the league if were talking size, strength, and agility. Not sure why people didn't think he could do this forever and evolve. Now if he could just solve that free throw dilemma!

Giannis need to skill up. He needs 2-3 go to post moves and a reliable 10-12 jump shot. Without that its all a distraction to postulate on who they should pair him with or how he compares to other players.

And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: (Acts 17:30 [KJV]) :: I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:5 [KJV]) :: For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13 [KJV]) :: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23 [KJV])

lebron is clearly coasting when he plays a team like the knicks, pistons, timberwolves or kings. It makes sense to save his legs and stamina for the playoffs. However when he plays a contender, he stomps them into the ground like this game. He is seriously starting to give mj a run for his money

I always hate how Stephen A pretends that he knows basketball when he talk down to people like he is a basketball genius like Greg Popovich or something.. The only reason he is in that position is because he is entertaining to watch when he is shouting especially when he is talking about his Knicks.. He is good for ratings but his analysis is nothing special just at the same level as barbershop conversation the only difference is he shouts to win argument.
