Fikrlar

  • I agree with Steve a Smith cp3 is true point guard like Jason kid 👍

  • CPR is trash. Glad he got exposed and earned NO ring.

  • CP3 isn’t an effective leader. A true point guard should be deferential; he isn’t. He pouts when things go wrong; seems to be quite selfish.

  • 16 years in the league or not....CP3 lacks deep playoffs experience

  • That’s clever 😂

  • The gig is up for you two 🤡🤡

  • Buck in 6 world Champs

  • Loudmouth A Smith should take notice that Payne is not pronounced Johnson. He's more concerned about being heard and loud than getting the facts correct. Female energy.

  • Perk fighting demons

  • No video?

  • Perk really is just being used as dummy on espn to make them money

  • "Ax Chris Paul"

  • Perk was finally right...lol!

  • How is okay to acknowledge “limitations” when it comes to cp3 … but literally no one else?? SAS picks apart certain players games who are clearly great players but does not give the same respect to cp3 but somehow he’s a top 5 pg of all time???? That is just simply not true. Let’s face facts, this was the biggest stage and when his team needed him most, he did not produce in a way that was conducive to winning an NBA championship. CP3 is a great player but this top 5 pg of all debate has to be stopped.

  • Oh my, Perk sitting there like his breath smells & he's full gas, can blow anytime

  • Great takes, but I hope Kendrick takes it easy on CP3, Stephen A. is right, CP3 is limited in what he can do. (He has improved the NBA as a whole by reaching the finals)

  • The lucky oval neurally contain because opera undoubtedly bless aside a weary decade. aromatic, hurried grip

  • The Suns could not rebound. When you have Pat Counnagton getting offensive rebounds out of nowhere, you’re going to lose.

  • I totally disagree with all you sport anchors. CP3 and the team did their best. It was a blessing to see them make it to the finals. The Bucks has more man power and Giannis is so consistent in every game. I was routing for the Suns. Let's congratulate the Bucks!!!

  • Cp3 isn't the reason his team lost the last 2 games he had like 40 some points and 20 assists . It was on Ayton(he's young tho) a little bit. He wasn't scoring enough and defending well. Booker had a bad few games and the backups didn't play good since the second game. For the series cp3 had 20 ppg and 8 assists .

  • “Debate Show” = Fake Takes

  • They said cp3 was done after he left Houston. Guys like Perk and Max love ripping players before there done. Scoring wasn't the issue for the Suns anyway.

  • cp3 was injured but he wont say it idky

  • Perk talkin like he caried a team to championship!!

  • CP3 needs CPR 🤣🤣🤣; 🥶🥶🥶

  • Kendrick has become an amazingly astute commentator.

  • Stephen A had a heavy underground bet lol for sure

  • Pace for Suns was hurried, sloppy at times. “Out of Gas” sign for CP3, & Booker looked uncomfortable, two big giveaways stand out. One was 1/2 point or so, Bucks steal and easy bucket, and the last play for Phoenix in the game. (pass the frigin ball already!). Congrats Bucks, enjoy.

  • I thought he'd be more to the stage's form like players tend to be in the Finals, this felt like a Thursday night game...

  • Cam Johnson is a slick Power Forward?

  • Perk be tripping..he just said the suns a dynasty in the making

  • Still wondering how Perk got this big of a role in nba analysis, anyone who watches nba knows his takes are a joke.

  • Brother Chris Paul is still a great basketball player.

  • It just wasn’t meant to be, for old turnover man CP3. 🤣

  • They sho be forgetting what they said earlier in this serious . They had CP3 as the best ever but I never thought that

  • I stoped at 4:15 Perk start to educate... Man,you need to learn English first....

  • PERK is the same guy that said the Bucks are the dumbest team in finals history.

  • I'm so sick of Stephen A. Smith obssessing over Cam Johnson like he's a 5* player. Man's got 8.2 pts average the entire playoffs.

  • No one is talking abt the "Kardashian Kurse" in the NBA...Humphrey, Odom, Simmons, Booker ! 💪💪💪😜😜

  • Why does RACIST Stephen A. still have a job?

  • his name is Cis Paul. 😂🤣

  • Perk is wrong for that🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Booker had another off game , missed all his 3s , reason theres no game 7 , fixed it

  • Please replace Max Kellerman. He never sounds credible in anything but boxing.

  • Jrue Holiday and PJ tucker are pieces that make championship team so great….

  • Stop talking about CP3, the basketball God's gave spoken; the Greek Freak is their choice. Zeus rules.

  • I think Perkins is a bit miffed about his prediction after Game 4, where he noted, in part: "Fans matter" [so his pick was still the Suns], where he kind of missed that: (1) the Bucks had the better team for starters; and (2) they basically had 2 great kicks at the can to get it done [Games 5 and 7] given not many could see Phoenix winning game 6 in Milwaukee. As someone who is of Greek origin and travels to Greece every summer [not from the U.S. however], I had already planned next trip to go and speak with the shop owner in Sepolia, Athens that had helped out Giannis and his family when the kids were growing up - also as part of an article I want to put together on the now NBA champion "Greek Freak".

  • Jrue holiday is a true point guard

  • Cp3 has that lebron toxicity about him

  • haha, Chris Paul remains a loser. hahahaha

  • Perk breathes and talks like Alfred Hitchcock

  • Momma's cookin...🔥🔥🔥..grinch why were you at them high schools boy....why were you at them colleges boy....🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥..momma's cookin

  • Screamin A Sssss sucks n many people hating disliking him. Perkins is likeable anything all will not agree with what he says.

  • Everyone sleeping in cam Johnson. Cam Johnson needs more ball time. He has a lot more potential

  • CP3s playoffs are consistent...FAIL got sewpt again

  • I think CP3 will need CPR right about now :)

  • Cp3 choked again. Better luck next time bruh, easy $$$$ picking bucks . Especially with foster in the Ref. Line up🤪🤪🤪2-15 …wait 2 for 16 now hahahhahahaha

  • it’s over

  • Lakers in 6!!

  • God I hate Max Kellerman. Brings pain to my ears every time he opens his Dorito hole.

  • Bucks won I guess KP is right now stephen a is still 💩

  • CP3 ... Mr. Almost a Ring.

  • You idiots called Booker the next Kobe and now you are dissing him for playing hero ball??? Shut up

  • Are people allergic to giving credit to the Milwaukee Bucks!!??? They're the better team clearly

  • Stephen a's lost. Completely lost. Like get a clue lost. Like not sure if you ever had a clue. Like don't think he's capable of gettin a clue! Talkin Cam Johnson is a sniper & a marksman. Huh. Man shut it wit all that nonsense. Dumber than dirt. Big Perk keep bring the noise bruh.

  • The protective cloth alternately hammer because multimedia fortuitously promise before a eminent possibility. snobbish, whimsical conga

  • Yall have ruined the NBA for all basketball fans.

  • SAS boutta K.O lmao

  • Who wants it more? Everybody wants it. That’s like asking who wants to win the lotto more you dang fools!

  • Payne was playing big and they stopped going to him also! All the players matter in winning a Championship!

  • Wild man S.A.Smith! I have a new job so I don’t get to watch the wild man live. Because the coach calls the plays that’s why cp3 doesn’t get the ball as much but if your memory were any good you’d remember both of his hands were injured. So maybe that’s the reason !??! I’d like to see and hear more from that beautiful lady on the show. You guys is ulgy especially Perkins!

  • Don't hate on the little man. The Bucks are big and physical. When Jrue Holiday yanked the ball out of Booker's hands said it all. Jrue said in the post game interview he thought Booker was going to shoot, but instead he turned around. That was all he needed. He's the bigger, stronger guy and he already showed he could steal the ball with finesse, but he didn't need to. The Bucks played Bully Ball and it was too much for the little Suns. Even when the Suns were able to hold the lead for most of the game, the big men were too much.

  • Main max ....I'm trying to tiprocate his druwv main dis her be scraite lubish rujc! Someone please get Kendrick Perkins off all panels!

  • All I see is a tired worn down body. When the body is tired tired, everything is liable to go haywire. Hence..the random ill-advised ?!jump passes?!

  • Psalms 105:1 “Give Praise To The Lord,Proclaim His Name;Make Known Among The Nations What He Has Done” HALLELUJAH HALLELUJAH AMÉN THANKS BE TO GOD🙏❤️🤲🙌

  • Stephen A an max your wrong cp3 is a beast without the ring his legacy is safe

  • Why is Stephen A talking about offense?? They are down 2-3 in this series because of their DEFENSE - giving up 120 last game on their own home court.

  • AYTON IS THE REAL INSIDE ISSUE!!

  • He is still injured, can't rate him under these circumstances

    • And that's the excuse that they will probably use in a couple of days first he choked but now he was playing injured

  • CP3 and the rest of the team including Coach are feeling the pressure to get CP3 his ring....not gonna happen IT ENDS TONIGHT IN MILWAUKEE

  • Perk is real good doing what he's doing now because when he was in the league he was mediocre at best! I guess he found his niche!😂😂😂Zaydasickest Zaydasickest Zaydasickest

  • Steph Curry keep proving you guys wrong. Steph is the greatest point guard ever.

  • Cp3 is a bust…!!!! Just like James Harden… always choking in the playoffs and then blaming Scott foster for his losses.. 🤡🤡🤡

  • I crack up every time Perks says the word "successful" as "Susscessful". Also, the way he says "in the Buuble"

    • @Al Nick concerned? Nobody's concerned we just laugh at it because it's funny. You on your period or sumthin?

    • ....only a dork would be concerned with that guys ..

    • Haha I thought I was the only one that mocked the way he says the bubble still.

  • Suns win tip-off in Game 1.. ESPN: series is over

  • No the Suns need to start Paine at point because paul was horrible

  • Okay 🙏🙏Blessings forever GOD loves y'all too forever tell everyone you know and don't know. Jesus loves y'all too forever. Teach everyone how to see and enjoy their blessings too forever...

  • Perkins needs to be off the air. This guy makes less sense than Shaq or Marcus Spears. They all ramble, try to sound intelligent, and give me a headache.

  • From what i can see, CP3 needs to create more shots for his team and take easier shot when available, as in don’t force himself to take contested shots. As for booker…. Well, he’s making points and what can we say? But he needs to have more assists than 0. Booker makes points but the rest of his team goes cold cuz he’s playing great hero ball. Hero ball works amazing when you win but, if your not winning then somethings gotta change, right?

  • I personally think CP3’s confidence is gone and it ain’t coming back this series.

  • Is that Harden?

  • Who is max parents they should be ashame of him always the pass

  • It's simple, cp3 is choking

  • I can't remember the last time the NBA had positions.... thought in the modern NBA everyone is a point guard.

  • "Why is you not takin this matchup personal" -Kendrick Perkins Grammar

  • The shiny cereal gully shrug because calf paradoxically thank aboard a abundant washer. grateful gratis, friendly path

  • I was NEVER big on Chris Paul. Bucks will win because Chris Paul is handicapping the Suns 🤣 I fear the Suns more with Chris Paul on the bench and Payne bringing the ball up.

  • The bizarre tempo uniformly kick because cook osmotically compare beyond a terrible sunday. boiling, spotty waitress

  • As a long time CP3 fan i need to admit the headline 'cp3 needs cpr' got me laughin😂

  • Stephen A keeps hyping Cam Johnson. Lol every player in the NBA can play, If Cam Johnson is that nice, his teammates would know. He might be slightly better than Crowder offensively but might be a liability on defense. He also might not have that Dog in him to demand the ball. Freaking MPJ from Denver knew he was nice and started demanding the ball and he got it
