  • I knew the whole year clippers were gonna fold. Them guys that’s been there grinding for years kinda clashed with the new stars. They need a point guard and another 7 footer and they’ll be ready.

  • 9:43 What does it mean when Tristan says "How many double doubles it take for you to feel all better for me now"? It sounds cool, but I don't understand the slang.

  • So its lebrons fault clips choked vs denver ??lol

    MrmMrmپیش ماه
  • If LeBron's happy, excited or whatever he's feeling that he's not playing against the Clippers is his RIGHT and if's not his fault that the Clippers choked.

    Raida OrsalRaida Orsalپیش ماه
  • Lakers about to win 3 straight NBA championships. This is written on Saturday, September 19th, 2020. So when it happens, you heard it here first. If Clippers don't choke then MAYBE they'll qualify to finally lose to Lakers in West Finals during this time.

    Eddie AndersonEddie Andersonپیش ماه
  • The Lakers were #1 in the west for a reason. They have chemistry and a great team. And there's a reason Lakers don't have to play the Clippers... letting 2 and 3 or lower seeded teams fight it out before they qualify to meet them. The best two playoff teams this year are in the Western Conference Finals.

    Eddie AndersonEddie Andersonپیش ماه
  • Lebron happy that he dodged some Clippers? What... a team who cant make a shot in the 4th quarter in 3 straight games? 😄

    Eddie AndersonEddie Andersonپیش ماه
  • How are they going to hold it against Bron that the Clippers didn’t make the WCF? That had nothing to do with Bron. That’s a terrible take/narrative. Instead of blaming Bron, BLAME THE CLIPPERS FOR CHOKING.

    Cam SlamCam Slamپیش ماه
  • There’s no LeBron stopper on the Flippers...Flippers couldn’t even stop a fat Serbian dude. To much hype for the fraud that is the Flippers

  • If bron goal is to win it all then he has to be tgrilles if not rellieved kawhi choked

    will liamwill liamپیش ماه
  • Those early finals were done beating Leastern patsies, except for the fading old Pistons then lebron went to miami big three to learn how to win

    will liamwill liamپیش ماه
  • Acho spot on, Kawhi real value is anti-Lebron, anti-KD anti-Luka and maybe anti-Giannis. Wutjout those guys he's not as valuable as other stars

    will liamwill liamپیش ماه
  • Thrilled not to see Kawhi, sure. Even more elated Clippers choked

    will liamwill liamپیش ماه
  • The LeBron stopper is a freakin myth lol! Percentage may be a bit lower but what does he average against Kawhi and pretty much everyone, STOP IT!🤔

    Fatir YaminFatir Yaminپیش ماه
  • This segment actually got good takes from everyone... they got good chemistry (unlike the clippers) and you can see everyone was having fun

    dbarzdbarzپیش ماه
  • Mike got more than just Chips over Lebron, MVPS finals and regular, DPOY lebron has none, and Assists abs Rebounds aren’t the only stats, plus it took more years and games to pass MJ in points, and the biggest one is mine is 6-0 Lebron is 3-6 give me a break he will never be better than MJ. He better keep competing for 2nd

    Michael JacksonMichael Jacksonپیش ماه
  • Never ask a former teammate of LeBron a question about these type of topics

    Corderro FaulknerCorderro Faulknerپیش ماه
  • The clippers was uninspired but never the less they loss

    Corderro FaulknerCorderro Faulknerپیش ماه
  • Why is no one talking bout the Nuggets WINNING against the Lakers???? They are a TEAM that steps up when needed. They have more than a couple weapons. Seems they have plenty of motivation to succeed. That's DANGEROUS

    Thomas WelcomerThomas Welcomerپیش ماه
  • How did he DODGE the team that lost BEFORE they got to him. Both of these guys are stupid.

  • I considered Tom Brady the 🐐 after he threw that touchdown pass to Randy Moss with 2 min left in SB 42.

    J BJ Bپیش ماه
  • That’s what I thought first, but the game 7 was proof that they‘re not ready yet for the Lakers bec. of issues, you can’t go to finals like that... So please stop saying that the lakers are glad not playing them...

    Joseph EscoJoseph Escoپیش ماه
  • They wanna talk about road now when Jordan beat Sean kemp and Clyde Drexler in the finals.

    Bobby SmithBobby Smithپیش ماه
    • Dewane Welch I literally didn’t say “that Seattle team”. I named the best player on two of the teams Jordan beat. Not exactly Duncan, Durant, or curry

      Bobby SmithBobby Smithپیش ماه
    • The fact that you said that Seattle team let's me know you dont know history. That Seattle team in the 90s constantly was a title contender and 60 win team. Also was constantly top 5 in offense and defense.

    BucketssBucketssپیش ماه
  • Tbh, LeBron wanted that smoke. As TT said "he wants to prove people." I think he more upset that he didn't get to play Clippers than thrilled. Nuggets is a different breed, ngl. I can see either Nuggets winning in 6 or Lakers winning 5

    A WA Wپیش ماه
  • Tristan Thompson talking smack like he can back it up 😆 He was a role player He has a role player on the Cavaliers and he was a role player on the Kardashian’s He should let Lebron speak for himself and focus on narrating for the Kardashian’s

  • Ppl underestimating Nuggets and Heat (or Celtics with Hayward healthy) as Lakers outside of Top2 I don’t trust at all. Hope I’m wrong as Lebron fan but I think they’re gonna miss Avery Bradley. This cakewalk talk is laughable. I just bet $100 to win $400 on heat +400. Hope I’m wrong

  • Marcellus Lebron didn't say he was the "GOAT" after the 2016 finals. He actually said he was verbatim "I'm chasing the ghost" with a photoshooped screenshot of him guarding MJ. Implying he still had some work to do to catch the goat in MJ.

    • Agreed

      Lobo 1 G till I dieLobo 1 G till I dieپیش ماه
  • Let me remind the "LeBron is GOAT" crowd something real quick. Y'all acting like the Clippers right now, looking ahead to the throne instead of what's really in front of you. Since you love to use Lebron's all-time total stats (more TOTAL points scored instead of ppg where Jordan has the advantage) Kareem Abdul-Jabbar still has a few thousand more total points scored, better FG% all-time, and an absurd number more rebounds and blocks than Lebron. Also, I know, I know. Lebron made it to 9 NBA Finals. So what he only won 3? Psshhhttfflllpppbbb!!!! He made it 9 times. 9!!! And that's SOMETHING. Kareem made 10 NBA finals. And won 6 of them. So, even if the Lakers win it this year, LeBron still doesn't quite stack up to Kareem in total numbers or Finals/Chips. Also - a few other guys with 9 finals appearances - Magic Johnson was 5 of 9 in the Finals wins. Tom Heinsohn was 8 of 9. Im sure most know Bill Russell was 11 of 12 (in 13 years, btw), Sam Jones rode with him to a 10 of 11 Finals record and John Havelicek and KC Jones both won 8 out of 8 Finals.

    • @Juan Walker I agree. So much to look forward to next year with Golden State and Brooklyn alone. And I also agree that this little exercise (the GOAT convo) has minimal impact on how other people feel and I honestly try to avoid it 99% of the time, but it can, very occasionally, be both fun and informative. So we'll just take our own opinions and agree to disagree. But, I did enjoy this exchange. Have a good day, sir.

      That Tommy WestThat Tommy Westپیش ماه
    • That Tommy West I think like you said it can go either way. I honestly don’t think it was to the clippers demise however neither was chemistry. They just got outplayed. They were literally 2nd in the West. I can’t even blame PG either because he has never been that guy before. It just wasn’t their time, next year will be even harder for them. Nuggets have confidence, golden state will be back full strength, Lakers will be back, Jazz will seek revenge, etc. next year will be exciting because load management will probably be minimum.

      Juan WalkerJuan Walkerپیش ماه
    • That Tommy West I think we both have made great arguments but I think the sum of it all is the best player ever is a myth and has to be based on stats and impacts per era. We can’t mix eras because the outcome is unknown so it will always be based solely on opinion.

      Juan WalkerJuan Walkerپیش ماه
    • @Juan Walker And is the advent of load management supposed to be an argument for or against teams being better now? Because you could argue either way. LM worked for the old Spurs, yet its to blame for Clippers demise.

      That Tommy WestThat Tommy Westپیش ماه
    • @Juan Walker No defense is harder to play now because of no hand checking, defensive 3 seconds, and flagrant fouls mainly. Its harder to get around a defender who can touch you. Its harder to get to the rim if bigs are camped in the paint. And its harder to successfully make a layup when defenders are tentative about making contact on the way up. Are the rules better? Probably, yes. Is it easier to score? Of course.

      That Tommy WestThat Tommy Westپیش ماه
  • So we might as well discount kobe and shaq lakers also who did they beat? Nets? Pacers? Sixers? Cmon now!!!

    Phooj XiongPhooj Xiongپیش ماه
    • Shaq and Kobe was some beasts but this is facts. Portland and the Kings gave them trouble but that was pretty much the championship beating them. It was smooth sailing in the finals.

A 73 win team at the time so I think he wanted the clippers but he will get over it. Lol

This great defensive team got 40 dropped on them by a guy that didn't even make the all NBA team. Hey did you guys see Paul shot a open shot and hit the back board?
