Fikrlar

  • This didn't age well for Perk. Young played worse at home. You can apologize to Ben later.

  • Comment section overrun with ben stans trying to force their way in to a convo about Embiid.

  • Perk I’ll put up $100 that 6ers win in 5-6

  • Man cancel perk , that boy a trash analyst

  • Kendrick Perkins lookin like Triple H up in here.

  • Ben locked up Trae

  • I thought perk say before 76ers best team in east but hawks game 6 also perk pick buck's against kd

  • I truly believe announcers are going against the sixers in an effort to not jinx them 😭

  • Imagine if Ben sorry as can get a bucket!!!! 🤦🏿

  • I will make a prediction. Ben Simmons will go for 40 in the next game in a sixer win. Ben Simmons plays his best game on the road. He will drop 40 points in the next game for a sixers win

  • Theres nobody to guard him. We know Joel is the best big in the NBA. We also wants to let Jokic know that, too. But ..we want to see him get to and win the Finals. Then he gets ultimate respect. Til then...its nice what he's doing. It's always been nice to see since the Process started.

  • Bandwagon perk don't watch games just stats sheets

  • If u asked Kendrick how many times he has smiled in his life, he'd be able to count it on one hand.

  • A backpacker talking about Joel carrying Simmons 😅

  • The overrated grenade generally shelter because minibus analogically attract by a erect growth. debonair, rotten captain

  • Crowd won’t be a factor. Sixers in 5

  • Embid coming into his own, with doc rivers

  • Perkins: "(Donovan Mitchell) is Dwayne Wade with a 3 pt jump shot." That was spot on Perk! I was wondering who DM reminded me of, and its definitely D Wade!

  • Perk tripping, sizers in 5!!!

  • Every time Trae has a good game they talk about how to stop Trae when he lose they don’t talk about how to stop the sixers bias espn

  • Who is Kendrick Perkins?!

  • Tony Parker 2.0 - Trae Young but a worse defender

  • LOL the FedEx center....ohhh the Sixers are playing the Washington Football Team....Embiid scored 5 TDs a FG and 2 XPs

  • Philly Nation shout out 2 ATL

  • Sixers need ben to go inside you got the speed they can't stop you, doc the coach of the year

  • Philly Nation go sixers 😆 now we play street ball next ball game 2-1

  • Ben Simmons plus or minus hasn’t been negative in any of the games in the playoffs including the 2 games they lost. Without Simmons the 76ers wouldn’t win another game. Everyone has a role it takes a team to win.

    • @mobbgeek Ben Simmons is up for that award this year. Ben Simmons is not as bad of offensive player as you think. Your just focused on how many points he scores.

    • @Samuel Clewell i would mind a lot less paying a 2 time DPOY to protect the paint than a guard wont shoot or even be aggressive getting to the paint. Also gobert doesnt stand near the half court line and cherry pick and leave his team 4 on 5 on offense.

    • @mobbgeek Rudy Gorbert is a Max Contact player averaging 14 points per game. Nobody is talking about Gorbert stepping up his game for Jazz to win a title.

    • you think it was a good idea to give a role player 177 mil and leave Embiid without a true 2nd superstar?

  • Perk is all over the place. First, he said that the 76ers are going to the final because the Nets can not beat them. Now he is saying that the Hawks are going to beat the 76ers in the sixth game.

  • Part of me wishes doc would sit Simmons for one name just to show the value.

    • It’s a weird take because of history is an indicator they were never in danger of losing that game prior to shake. Every time the hawks came close the SIXERS dropped another 10 on them right before Shake came in that was their first lead of the night.

    • lost 4 straight without him sub .500 without him

  • Lemon pepper wings and smoking crack

  • perk saying hawks in 6 is ridiculous 76ers in 5 games

  • Kendrick Perkins Career Avg: 5.4 PPG Kwame Brown Career Avg: 6.6 PPG

  • Joel carried OFFENSIVELY, Ben carried DEFENSIVELY. Very important key there.

    • the Sixers pulled away with Simmons on the bench. Key

  • Perk literally said the sixers were coming out of the East 😂😂😂 perk is dumb af

  • Idc if Simmons scores 5 points a game if he can shut down Trae Young

    • @mobbgeek nobody is talking about them

    • oh really? think thats gona work against KD, Harden, Irving ?

  • Embiid was amazing, but the rest of his teammates were a huge help, especially considering his health right now. I love Mitchell, but I can't see him being the best player on a championship team because of his lack of versatility.

  • If Ben Simmons don’t win dpoy .. we riot

  • Joel didn’t not carry that team last night, Curry was making buckets, Milton, and Harris. Don’t start that Joel carrying the team. He’s carrying Ben Simmons tho.😂 Atlanta gave them a run for their money but when that 4th came they were gassed out.

    • Shake carried Ben. Thats why Ben was on the bench during the turning point of the game

  • Ben carried us on defense last night. He's focused on locking up young n getting others involved. My only problem with Ben is not shooting at least 70% from the stripe. Im surprised at perk. Not seeing the defense as a crucial part of the win. Philly should win this series we're the better team. 0 bench points n only lost by 4. Hawks are for real n so is their coach.

  • State Farm arena perk, not fed ex arena

  • Philly in 7 by 11points

  • Shake won’t have another good game hawks in 6

    • @Rico Flyy sorry to be the bearer of bad news buddy but Hunter is indeed out for the season now

    • @Rico Flyy Good luck man

    • If booty shake and curry don’t score it’s over

    • @Kay Sheye hopefully game 3

    • @Rico Flyy when is Deandre coming back then?

  • Thybulle DPOY

  • 112th comment

  • Trae is good, but Joel was top 3 in mvp voting I believe, so I mean you can’t really compete with that

  • Dude I came here for Embiid and had the clippers game ruined. What the duck

  • Embiid has the knees of a Middle Aged white guy

  • Just push embiid over, he’ll pick up an injury and that’s the series wrapped for the hawks lol

  • Joel Embiid best big man in the NBA! Subscribe for lit new music

  • Ben gotta get that jump shot that’s all he should work on in the off-season

    • he doesnt care thats hes an NBA player who wont shoot an 8 footer , thats why ppl in Philly dont like him

  • Perk will be wrong... AGAIN... Sixers got this series in the bag

  • Lol @ Hawks in 6

  • won't his leg have permanent damage after this series?

    • U really wishing huh, smh lol

  • Trae was on clamps by my boy Ben

  • Perkins you’re the worst hire ESPN has ever made next to Bayless

  • Kendrick Perkins all year: Sixers will be waiting for Nets in East finals. Also Kendrick Perkins: Hawks in 6

    • 😂😂😂

    • @Beede Bawng Joel has dropped 39 and 40 pts respectively since his injury

    • Joel's injured. So Perk changed his choice.

    • He might be the worst ESPN analyst I’ve ever seen

    • I honestly don’t understand him

  • Sorry, this was Ben’s game. His defense on Trae is a huge reason they evened it up.

    • i think everyone did their thing perfectly except the bench in the first half

  • "Embiid carried Ben" lmao Ben put tray in a prison last night, he scored two buckets while Ben was on him stfu Perk. Watch the game next time, "Analyst" smh

    • @Andrew Chisholm simmons ran the offense as a floor general. Why should simmons score when other players are better at it like Harris and embiid

    • Ben could have scored more like he did in Game 1. The plan was to put most of his energy on defending Trae. He doesn't have to score when the Sixers have other personnel who can step up at any time to score. He sets up the offense, and plays D. That's what box score idiots like Perk don't understand

    • nice 4 points i think it’s clear he meant offensively

  • Lets just ignore Tobias and Seth scoring 20 each, while Ben pretty much had trae in a box (1/7 from 3)

    • No one is ignoring that geez u ppl. Why cant they complement a guy for have a monster game? Even when wilt scored 100 someone else contributed something in that game. What were they supposed to overlook the 100 pts n congragulate the guy with 2 pts?

    • Ben is allowed to participate on offense too, ya know. Gonna need more than 7 points to beat the Nets

  • Great performance from embied but from a hawks perspective you have some things to keep your chin up . They got one in Philly, the reason you lose is Milton got hot and swear he will be that good again especially on the road, and your players couldn't buy a shot after a really good shooting performance.

  • Perk the same dude that said the Wizards was going to upset the Sixers 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • He have the hawks upsetting the sixers also

    • 😂 😂 😂 He just trying to feed his keeds, man.

  • I'll say this AGAIN! DEAR ESPN, PLEASE FIRE KENDRICK PERKINS!! HE'S A WASTE OF TIME! I HATE THIS DUDE!

  • Thanks Perk now we know the Hawks getting blown out at home and they gonna lose in 5

  • Perk must be on perks. 🤦🏽‍♂️

  • Since when did the Hawks become this juggernaut that all the national media is talking about ?? Hawks in 6 ? The Sixers haven't even played a GREAT game yet. The Hawks role players were hitting everything.. Our starting 5 is too strong for Atlanta. As long as our bench chips in like they did the 2nd half we will win the Series in 5 or 6. Book it!!

  • Hawks in 6? This dude perk sometimes is completely delusional. The hawks only won 1 half in this series and it was because Doc Rivers came out with a drop coverage on the Hawks' only play on the playbook (trae picknroll with capela). I can see Hawks getting one at home but hawks in 6??? Lmfao

    • @Diogo Viduedo i agree with your opinion bro

    • @1K Hawks. and just like that is a 2 1 lead

    • @unooffixial barely won?? The final score showed a 16 point difference lmao. The proper way to talk about the game was Atlanta BARELY came back. Their really wasn’t a quarter of that game that you won even tho the hawks took a 2 point lead in the 3rd. Like the other guy said, you guys only really won a half of a game this series and it’ll take more than that to beat a team like philly.

    • @unooffixial Hi there, let me tell you that I don't think I'm underrating you. Prior to the playoffs have started I thought you were better than the knicks and by a lot (as oppose to most nba analysts said, giving the knicks as favorites). The reason why I picked prior to the playoffs the sixers to win in 5 against the Hawks in the 2nd round is because people also underrate the sixers, in my opinion. Hawks are good and got game 1 so I can easily see this going to 6. If the Hawks somehow managed to win the series would be in 7 never in 6 as Perk said. The future is bright for yall so don't be sad is just Trae's 3rd season

    • @Diogo Viduedo hawks fan here, u severely underrate us and no need to pull out excuses for why yall barely won, it doesnt matter why yall barely won but we can pull excuses like that too but i wont do so, yes this series is going to 6 or 7 and i have yall winning n honestly as a hawks fan i want yall to win so we dont get swept in the conference finals again🤷🏾‍♂️😂

  • Clearly Mr. Perkins didn't watch the game. He's analyzing off the box score

    • @edashMusix i could tell you the same thing. Speak for yourself!

    • @Rubin Turner most of who?/ apeak for urself rubin. lol dahell? "mot of us".... most of us dont work fastfood

    • 😂😂😂😂😂😂

    • Who cares. Most of us didn't watch it either. I wanted to i was at work but had it on.

    • Facts and espn give him another deal😂😂😂

  • He dominated but was traveling from Africa and back

  • Get no playing time, Kendrick Perkins!

  • He literally makes cappella look small

  • Ok

  • Another 7 foot point guard, lets see how many rings he accumulate

  • Donovan Mitchell is D-Wade with a 3 pointer!?!? Slowwww down Perk, at the same age d-wade had a ring, avgd more points (better shooting% and efficiency), more rebounds, more assists and is twice the defender Mitchell is.. 14.4 WS vs 6.2 WS, 27.6 PER vs 21.... Come on man!

    • @Jimmers90 ur analyzing with a magnifying glass just ta be "well actually" guy. If i say embiid is like Hakeem with a stepback im making a general comp. It doesnt mean im saying he has more rebounds more titles more points. It's general statement not an analytical break down of the 2. But ok, be that guy. im sure it's more fun than just enjoying the 2 players

    • @Alt Delete what does this have to do with Wade having more Pts, rbd, ast, blks, steals, win shares, PER and better D?

    • N wade didn't have Shaq or 🤔. Mitchell hasn't been on a complete team till this year. his teams have been offensively challenged outside of him n somehow he takes em to the playoffs every year. The comp is fair it doesn't mean they will do the exact same things and have the exact same numbers. It just means one kinda reminds you of the other

  • If Joel Embiid plays like this every game, this series is over. As a Hawks fan I’m sad but will truthfully admit we don’t have an answer for Embiid especially since we are missing our best perimeter defender in Deandre Hunter. Although I expect the hawks to come back with more physicality, I don’t know if Embiid will stay healthy through 7 games.

    • Hawks won't be able out-physical the sixers. WE saw it in 2 straight fourth quarters how the sixers just wore them down. That won't change.

    • @Emporer Aizen I wouldn't completely blame him. 76ers put their two best Defenders on him, tried to limit him as much as they could. He was probably testing the waters. Trae Young will bounce back 💯

    • That loss was on Trae

  • Ben Simmons can put up 0-0-0 for all I care, as long as he slows down Trae Young With Embiid, Harris, and Curry, 76ers don't really need him to score

    • @Alt Delete Nobody’s Butthurt Lmao Y’all throw that word around and Don’t even know what Butthurt look Like You assumed Me saying You Basically Threw words in my mouth by saying my logic Means they would sweep the nets Whatever logic you thought of is really Stupid lmao I literally posted the score of that Game keeping up with a team doesnt mean You will Sweep Them How did you come up with That

    • @iDrip2 22 bro what the heck? U asked me a sarcastic question now u butthurt cuz u got asked a question back? Theyre the 5 seed i said philly should beat them cuz theyre the one seed. How is that stupid? I didnt say they were bad u put that in my mouth. Bro u got way too much time on ur hands goving 20 responses ta one. Sayonara

    • @Alt Delete I can see why its a alt Delete cause of the stupid stuff that You say I would be using an Alt to

    • @Alt Delete Dont sit here and try To say Hawks are bad Cause they arent But they dont match Up with us at all

    • @Alt Delete Did i say they would sweep The nets Or do you just like putting words In peoples mouth

  • Blacks Mexicans and native Americans 12 tribes of Israel we are God chosen people the real Hebrew Israelites of the Bible

  • It really needs to be addressed how soft and poor offensively Ben Simmons is

    • OK casual

    • @Montega Jada just can’t see this team winning a chip with Ben as their second best player. Can’t have your second best player for $35m a year taking 3 shots all game and not even trying to grab an offensive board at that size or attack the basket

    • Elite defender and adds value to the team in other ways. Embid draws the double team and everyone else will eat.

  • Shake milton: literally the reason they have the lead Seth curry: 21 points Tobias harris: 22 points Ben simmons: force trae young to only score 21 Perk: he is doing it on one leg Ok sure....

    • Milton had 14 points he’s not the reasons why won. His 14 points helped tho

    • @Charles Truong carried most of the load. If those player didnt do what u just mentioned the sixers woulda lost too. I agree embiid is the best player on a winning team, he is great and contribute the most for the win. But he had help to finish the game. Example of carrying all the load, dame in game 5, that is what i call practically carrying all the load.

    • @Max Jannings If you did watch the game then you would know that the bench did nothing up until that Shake run. If Embiid doesn't drop 17 in the 3rd, they not even in the game. Tobi didn't do much after the 1st. Curry got open looks because of Embiid spacing the floor and drawing the double teams. So yes, I would definitely say that Embiid carried the load yesterday. Not discrediting what the others did, but if it wasn't for him, the Sixers woulda lost.

    • @Alt Delete if we should credit them like so. Then sure kd is all alone in the nets. So if they win, kd is carrying the team, kd had no help at all. James and irving basically did nothing, it was all kd.

    • @Alt Delete i nvr heard a single person said mj was all alone. Praise whoever all you want, but u cant say mj is alone, that is basically discrediting pippen and the others

  • Sixers finna win in 5

  • Big perk laugh 😅 was so loud almost broke my phone 📱 😶🙄

  • Means he’ll be out with back issues for game 3

  • Why do ppl think the Hawks going to beat the Sixers

    • Because embiid is a injury prone ticking bomb. You know it I know it even the process himself knows it

    • Im blaming drugs at this point.

  • Embiid almost cost them the game by almost getting ejected 😂

  • That game one was defensive issues. Look at the box score. Points were there. They just gave up too much. 6ers in 5.... 💪

  • The broad kettle finallly meddle because celery disturbingly bow without a slimy detective. draconian, erratic butcher

  • Simmons was busy shutting down trae

    • @mobbgeek he was on him more than that. He’s the reason we won bc he shut down Trae and they don’t have anyone else to play make

    • oh really he guarded him for like 25% of the game. so just sit out our 180 million dollar man cuz he held Trae down for 10 mins?

  • Perk is wrong. Sixers in 5.

  • Philly fans be in Atl all the time. Wounder how divided that stadium gone be.

    • @135 Incorporated you’re right but it will be noticeable

    • @Ishmeel Curry I didn’t say that. It’s gonna be overwhelming. It’s not gonna be that divided.

    • It’s gonna be sixers fans there

    • Said the same thing with knicks fans and it there was barely any Knick fans in Atlanta

    • It’s not going to be divided.

  • He might've carried us, but Shake won us the game.

    • That dame buzzer beater 3 at the end of 3qtr was huge Trailing by 4 or by 7 going into the final qtr makes total difference psychologically for young teams Once he hit that 3, I knew we'd win

    • 💯💪💯

    • was waiting on someone to notice

  • Embiid played the way the game is supposed to be played… Like your Life depended on Winning!!!🔥

    • @Lancer I do watch the games closely but if we really wanna take the next step he gotta score more consistently no matter how well his defense/playmaking is

    • @Swea his impact on that game was crazy ya just watching box score he do need to hit free throws but he did his thing

    • Facts, something Simmons needs to be doing Fr

  • Without Ben the Hawks would win lol

    • @Alt Delete contributing nothing to it lol. averaging a triple double while locking down the teams best player. brutal casualness on display from you

    • @Alt Delete lol brutal, we use him there a lot cause the attention he gets and the defences always collapse leaving shooters open lol the system has gotten us #1 seed and the #1 starting 5 in the nba. Be gone casual

    • @ryan r theyve been putting their best ball handler at in the dunker spot all season?? Standing around watching the play n contributing nothing to it?? Ok this casual is out ✌🏾

    • @Alt Delete I haven’t said a word wrong bud, you just exposed yourself by acting like Doc just started putting Ben in the dunker spot when he’s literally been doing it from the start of the season 😂. not changing up arguments and nobody is saying ben is non tradeable, but he’s a 3x all star, all nba and all defence for a reason lol (before even turning 25)

    • @ryan r not really but ut gonna defend him to the death right? Keep changing up ur argument as you go bud I'm not as invested in this as you. For your sake lets hope they win a championship cuz Darryl Maury already considered him traded since the deadline

  • Ben put Trae in jail

    • Straight jacket straps,

  • I was with perk til he DISRESPECTED Ben Simmons. Ben simmons is a big help especially on defense and passing.

    • @Michael Maddox that might be one of the worst takes I’ve ever seen

    • @Michael Maddox he made Trey Young a liability on offense 😂😂

    • @Big Shoot Tra Young 35 points and -11 plus or minus in game 1. 21 points and -11 plus and minus game 2. Ben Simmons 17 points +4 game 1. 4 points +10 game 2. Ben is sacrificing scoring so his team will win. When you play 35 to 40 minutes a game the most important stat is plus or minus.

    • @adam davies it definitely ain’t jus some defense an some passing he runs our whole offense an he runs our whole defense he’s a floor general

    • @Samuel Clewell and ben does more then that!!!! Its crazy how much people hate on Ben. Hes so good. In my opinion hes a top 15 player. He does everything besides shoot. Ppl so casual

  • Perkins always sounds out of breath or full like he just ate

    • Word. How you commentate out of shape?

    • Diabetes.

    • @Barry Allan bruh nothing can compare to Ryan Hollins & Damon Jones💀💀💀

    • Worst hire espn has ever done next to bayless.

    • 😂😂😂

  • Thats right big PERK!!! Embid too big for them Hawks,,,,lil trae young lookin like smeagle

    • He got the hawks winning 🤦‍♂️

  • 40-13-2 and 2 steals 🔥🔥

  • I remember when pj was a great coach for the nets

  • Gotta give it too em embiid came out going hard last night like he had point prove on real
