I understand what Steven A is saying about how he wants to see Kawhi vs lebron. but no one caaarrreees no one. because Kawhi is not expected to make the conference much less the finals. the MOST pressure is on BROOKLYN they have to much power to not make the finals. Kawhi is not on the spot light as BROOKLYN.

Max is right, again, but Stephen A. and Perk be acting like they know everything lol. When Max schools them on boxing, he simply drops the facts and puts things in perspective for them. When it's Basketball, they mock Max like he has no idea what he is talking about but he is right, A LOT. Not always, but neither are they. The Nets have a big 3 and the leader of that team, or the best player, is KD. He is under the most pressure. This should not be a debate. He joined a 73 win team to get a ring because he could not beat LeBron, and now has the only big 3. Kawhi has Paul George who chokes every single time.

Kendrick Perkins does not know more basketball than Max. SAS is trippin and Harden is easily under the most pressure. Why do I feel like Max always gets too much hate by everyone who doesn't agree with him. Like instead of just disagreeing, why do they take shots at him?

Man kawhi ain't off the hook! He literally tried to ring chase and set the lakers up for failure, asked Durant and Jimmy Butler to join him before Paul george. Blew a 3-1 lead while up Doc gets fired.......aaaaaaaand I bet he leaves the clippers after this season. All the pressure should be on him to win, instead he got lucky that eyes shifted to Brooklyn and he could easily come up short handed with no backlash now. he's a low-key cancer himself anyone who thinks otherwise D-rider
lazyboy97 Ամիս առաջ
It's funny how Stephen A said him and Perk know basketball more than Max. If thats the case it just makes him look even worse. Max day after day is a much better analyst than Stephen A and ESPECIALLY Perkins. He actually uses factual statistics and scenarios to back up his stances. Even if he might go overboard sometimes. I wanted the Clippers to win last year. But with Harden going to the Nets every NBA fan knows we're looking forward to Lakers vs Nets in the Finals. Come on Stephen A

James Harden has had 2 former / mvp level players on his team for the past three years while averaging mvp numbers and still can’t deliver a chip now he got 2 of em at the same time let’s see what happens cuz I guarantee that the result aren’t gonna change I feel bad for Kyrie most off all he was tryna play robin to James now he gonna play Alfred to James N Kevin 😂😂
