😂😂😂 how was Lebron going to hold Kyre back from anything if he wasn’t doing anything too too huge before Lebron came?? An you say he left to spread his wings and do his own thing just to go and play BACK BURNER TO A 20 year old Jayson Tatum , and jalen brown💯💯💯

I understand players like Kyrie not wanting to play in LeBron:
When the Cavs won themselves a ring in 2016, nobody was talking about how Kyrie literally hit a championship winning shot over Curry. They were talking about LeBron’s “promise” to Cleveland and how the Cavs were proud of LeBron. I bet if Kyrie missed that shot and the warriors scored a point, then they would have booed Kyrie and they would have put all the blame on him. It’s bullshit how the blame goes on you but the credit goes to LeBron.

Lebron is just a stat whore he doesn’t care about anything else but his stats for his brand

Hopefully basketball will be fun to watch again. It's too predictable right now. Easy to see through the refs. It's their business though. They can run it anyway they want..even if it's right into the dump
joe momma
Lebron made the game lame. You see how refs let him run the show. Basketball has lost its appeal to many fans. Empty arenas that only fit 15k fans to begin with. People are simply tired of the game. Not exciting or interesting.

And kd rings will never mean something.one day he will realize those ring was a pussy easy ring
mike kay
To me kd will alwas be the weakest nba player in History he join a team that's 73-9 that is the biggest pussy move ever

I don't know what to think about this. From what I've seen of Lebron, he has no qualms about passing the ball to an open man. Hell, he's even criticized for doing it too much. To me, he seems as unselfish as Magic, Bird, and Steph. Why wouldn't you want to play with him? I'm not a Lebron fanboy, but I do appreciate his game and his talents. Wade and Bosh got plenty of recognition when they went to the finals 4 years in a row. I don't think Kyrie was ever disrespected like everyone is now making it out to be. James has had the spotlight on him since high school, and honestly, it's refreshing that he didn't turn into an Iverson, Mello or Kobe.

Kevin Durant can't even talk... he went to a team that put him out after a 3-1 lead not to mention they were 73-9 before he came so he can't say shit with his soft ass. look at the Cavs record before and after LeBron came back
MALIK MCCLAIN
Understand this, great players have the ability to make other players around them better. In this era of putting Super teams together (Big 3,Big 4,now Big 5),you are asking great players to submerge their egos and their games for the good of the team ,while the great players are saying just give me a squad of unselfish players who will pass up a good shot to get his teammates a better shot and sacrifice money due them so the type of players who understand their roles can collaborate on a championship. Its not easy to build this, but no disrespect to LBJ, he has been there and done that.

Lebron fans = trump supportors.
Wtf is max talkin abt the easiest way to win is to play with gsw. Lebum 3-6 in the final steph 3-1 most likly gunna be 4-1 . Steph is the best in the league pd. Stop thia bs.
Mandel Harvey
How about the Money. Anybody going to la takes a pay cut and probably loses in endorsements. By contrast, Steph Curry got all his ex teammates paid. LeBron I think has one ex teammate that got paid deli and that was because of Steph. LeBron got a couple guys he makes money in paid well. After that he sucks for your money.
C Durff
Can you imagine how much better the Warriors would be if LeBron and Durant swapped places?
Lekendrick Tatum
Piggybacking for rings was never a good look but kd did it, he should accept what comes with it and move on. Dude will never be in the goat conversation and I'm sure that sucks for him.
Greg Morillo
Kd is mad cus lebron is on a mj level kd will NEVER BE THAT ! HE COULDNT BEAT EM SO HE JOINED THEM 73-9 ..3-1.. kd = STRAIGHT DOODOO
gotgame9900
Durant is 100% spot on, correct, brutal honesty. The media has been on LeBrons jock since he’s been in high school.

KD to NYK
Moses Jordan Reyno
LeBron is overrated
W Judon
Max is being hypocritical AGAIN. Just last week, when Max was trying to make LeBron's light shine brighter, he said that the Warriors were not going to win without KD joining them; they had zero chance; LeBron was going to beat them. Now when he wants to diminish KD's light he says KD joined a team that was already the best 😂 smh. Max says if players don't want to play with LeBron then they are not about winning as if LeBron hasn't been taking all these L's. He's 3-6 not 6-3. They look at Dirk, Kawhi, Steph, then KD; why wouldn't players believe they can win without him, everybody else is.

Max Kellerman and Damien Woody can't take the story that the Washington Redskins' considered signing Colin Kaepernick seriously but Stephen A. Smith says it has to do with negative impact Kaepernick would have on the NFL owners' chances of getting a share of sports gambling revenue.
