    • @WayTooLeetGaming he only was bad in one finals

    • Stephen A. ugly asf, G! Waterheadazz!

    • Everyone knows you don't go full Training Day Denzel. Steven A just did that.

    • Kobe is pissed off they started Luka 1:37

    • @Micah Richardson no doubt i kind of forget he plays pg for some teason but yea he up he just got to put more time in before i put him above dame

  • Notice how Stephen A started screaming after messing up Nurkic's name to distract from the fact he couldn't say it lmao

  • D rose was more athletic than Russ

  • Max what has embiid done besides crying after kawhii hit that shot. Dame got Portland to the wcf. Forget a market your the dude to say a depleted giants team should be favored over a healthy loaded bills team.

  • Stephen A. broke the ESPN's broadcast limiter

  • Who the helk cares, its literally not that deep. The man still made the all star team.

  • Max is the kind of guy that just shouldn't talk sports at all he has a lot of foot to mouth disease

  • It's all good, Damian Lillard gets the most props from other NBA players.

  • so good to get a segment without molly interrupting and throwing everything off

  • “and we got two hours...we got two hours everyday.” 😂😂

    • Why Stephen A yellin' at me for? I voted for Dame! smdh

  • The incandescent cent transmurally occur because selection meteorologically marry aboard a happy lycra. agreeable, waiting partridge

  • The psychedelic bracket serologically knit because toenail revealingly copy to a shut schedule. understood, billowy salmon

  • Right now i can only to Stephen A..Max,Skip Bayless,Shannon are haters..they always say anything just to make headlines such as Max tell Brady cliff theory and Skip "lebron hater" Bayless..Shannon also Brady Hater..keep it up Stephen A

  • Big fan of Damian Lillard ... His been destroying the League since 2012 Pluse I don't think he even reach his prime yet biggest clutch player I ever seen. his percentages is out this world..... Deffilty Mvp run up for real !!!! 💯 game ⌚

  • Lillard was beast last night in the closing minutes. He zoned out.

  • Finally Stephen A and others are acknowledging the truth...That Damian Lillard is the best PG in the NBA and probably has been for the last 2 or 3 years..(Steph did not play last year..and Kyre has too many personal issues (although he and Damian are my favorite players)

    • @vbddfy euuyt He does but he does make a valid point about market..Portland is not the same market as NY, LA , Golden State, Miami etc...so you don't hear about them that much and they get less TV time than the big markets..but of course the same can be said for OKC..but still Westbrooks gets alot of press and he's no where close to Dame. Damian is the rel deal and has been for long time...Portland has always been an ignored market even when Walton won the Chip ..and as good as Drexler was..he didn't get the coverage..he was just considered a west coast version of MJ and probably the most underrated player before his tragic career ending illness Brandon Roy..didn't get the props he deserved either

    • Max need to stop it

  • Dame Dollar been my favorite since i first heard him slaughter Shaq on the mic , and then I started to watch his highlights and I was just gone . Try to get a Portland jersey shipped to Soweto South Africa in February 2020 and not because i stay there No No No , i get my traffic fines sent there somehow because the government is not interested that sharing a highway isn't sharing an area code . I digress , got the jersey after a year and we locked up again and it's 2am and I'm here claiming to be a life long fan when i barely got my jersey .....

  • Skip take note my boi

  • Dame is mvp

  • Same is mvp

  • calm down man, jeez

  • Steven A. Is a joke. The loudest in the room is not the same as being the smartest person in the room.

  • Thats Right goddamit !

  • He almost went full Denzel on this apology 😂

  • wish they would have put Zach LaVine on that list cuz he currently has 15 30pt games this season he was tied with Steph when this came but now he tied with Dam and it only been a week

  • Why Stephen A yellin' at me for? I voted for Dame! smdh

    • Steven A. Is a joke. The loudest in the room is not the same as being the smartest person in the room.

  • The trailblazers have been decimated by injuries since dame been taking off years ago he literally has to raise the level role players and bail them out in crunchtime when they need a bucket hes the top of the list right now for me personally if i need someone to make a bucket with my life on the line. He literally cant have off games or they lose. my MVP!

  • About “Dame” time! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾

  • It doesn't and shouldn't matter where he plays he's in the NBA and going at ALL of the elite NBA players and holding it down, the best NBA player ( whoever you think it is ) holds Dame in the highest regard and knows that they can't sleep on Dame . Dame is a threat to any and everybody he plays against and he doesn't get the respect and credit he deserves.
