  11. Full Spectrum Connoissuer on March 31, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Its hilarious people theorize that lebron needs to STEAL rest time. He needs to fake the injury being worse for a BREAK from the game. Thats disrespect on his name no matter what.

  12. King J on March 31, 2021 at 11:10 pm

  14. Don Quixote Doflamingo on March 31, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    Extreme next level flop,. just run of the court and shoot a 3…. now he might get an award for space jam though….

    See that agony? And still plays? That some basketball IQ right there…. easy way out so he wont embarass himself for losing the mvp, obviously there are many players ahead of him….

    There is good news, now his in the conversation about mj flu game and kobe achilles made free throw…. what a marketing genius…. really needs to be a gm when he retires

  15. Lee Jizzle on March 31, 2021 at 11:14 pm

  16. marissa cruz on March 31, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    The false familiar famous crocus monthly agree because anger speculatively open afore a sturdy cent. loose, hulking collision

  17. Josue Guillen on March 31, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    Tbh, without Lebron and AD for a good 10-15 games, Lakers need to worry about making the playoffs

  18. KlipperYT on March 31, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    Kawhi Leonard is overrated. Nevertheless, I love his game. Simple, and gets the job done.

  26. ZEROKOOL-20 on March 31, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    Giannis low key having a crazy year for MVP.. nobody says anything.

  27. Cameron James on March 31, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    The crown stand for the king of the north coming to L.A

  28. Top6 Utd on March 31, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Looking at some rosters and how they’re performing, ie….the nets, Lakers, clippers, I would say, over relying on stars, not performing enough as a team, to be able to gather momentum to win deep in the playoffs this year. With good players, and some top, top players, playing for eachother, and gaining momentum, to be able to be too hard to beat, possibly impossible to beat, in the playoffs, I see teams like Utah Jazz, the Bucks, and possibly the Suns. I say, the nuggets, and 76ers, aren’t complete in their coaching, therefore their overall around performance, and strength, and character, to be able to win the playoffs, from seeing everything objectively. Therefore I see the bucks, and Utah Jazz for me for the playoff finals, provided Giannis is healthy, we’ll see, otherwise, it has to be Utah in my view, from what I’m seeing long term.

  29. Ora Maponyane on March 31, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    “Settle down” – Molly lol wow why’d she do that

  30. Adrian Billy on March 31, 2021 at 11:34 pm
