    tHE ONLY WAY i WOULD RETURN AND START WATCHING THE nba IS IF : 1 aDAM sILVER IS FIRED 2 Michael Jordan becomes the commissioner 3 Minnesota gets back the name Lakers with the 5 rings . 4 LA remains purple and gold keeps 13 rings assumes the name KINGS 5) Sacramento would be renamed to the Embarcaderos . Which was the original name in 1850. Also 1st overall draft pick and 1st option on LBJs contract, since his contract expires after next year.

    @Michael Mccray so where they at though. Why they call him a highlight reel and was just making layups. I’m talking about the highlights they showed. Don’t be salty your favorite player is overhyped by ESPN. They gonna forget about him and be on the next rookies head next year.

    "I can't figure out the warriors" What is there to figure out? They are a bad basketball team who are being completely carried by a historically great guard. Warriors are 1-7 without Steph, (losing those games by an average of 19) and 23-20 with him

    @David Shamko A record below .500 is trash. Espn treats this guy like he is the no 1 seed. Obviously if u let white dudes put this lists together this will always happen 🤦‍♂️

    David ShamkoПре 6 дана

    @Kan Lang Wdym team record trash? The Mavs are 7th seed and not too far from sixth seed while the pelicans are at 11th seed. I looked at the stats and the only things that Zion is better at are at steals (Barely) and FG%. Luka is leading the Mavs to wins, something Zion hasn't learned to do just yet. In my eyes, it's not even close. You're entitled to your own opinion ofc.

    based on potential......... Melo 19 doing what he doing and breaking records so imagine him when he's Booker age at 25.. this list isn't based off what they're doing now then Tatum would be #1 or Book or Mitchell

    Is the media not going to talk Clippers later today? They scored 47 in the 1st quarter and Paul George had 22 of them. But the overlooked story is DeMarcus Cousins isn't washed. He gave scored 7 pts in 7 minutes.

    I dont get how luka is averaging 28.6 pts they say he is averaging 28, if you wanna round it up thats 29, he is averaging 8.8 assists and she rounds it up to 8, like yall math is slacking, if you wanna round 8.8 up its not that difficult, you just gotta ask yourself is 8.8 closer to 8 or to 9 and i think that its not that difficult of an answer, its clearly 9, like what are yall doin

    Luka is already by far better than anyone else. As soon he can lead his team to some wins and maintain the same stats, he can win the mvp in the next 3-4 seasons

    @Follow the brick road Luka is a decent defender now. Stop living in 2019. Come to this decade.

  74. Follow the brick road

    Follow the brick roadПре 7 дана

    @ubadman1 First of all Luka is an awful defender as well. All three of them can not guard their own man and has to be switched onto the lowest offensive threat. Trae Young is 4th in the west and is averaging 25 and 9 and last season averaged 30 and 10 despite his entire starting lineup being injured except capella. Not to mention he’s literally top 5 in 4th qtr scoring.

  75. ubadman1

    ubadman1Пре 7 дана

    @Follow the brick road trae, zion, and others are not right behind. both are awful defenders and have massive holes in their games. zion is playing with an allstar and cant win (sub .500 for his career) and trae isnt even the shooter people claim he is.

  76. Follow the brick road

    Follow the brick roadПре 7 дана

    @Jesse Umeh Trae young is behind Luka. If we going by currently it’s really Tatum or Mitchell. Potential ? That’s Trae .

  77. Leland Joseph

    Leland JosephПре 7 дана

    @Jesse Umeh his efficiency is extremely impressive and he's actually a decent passer at his position. But he's an average rebounder and a below average defender. Hes good, but he's definitely not right behind.
