ਟਿੱਪਣੀਆਂ

  • Kuz

  • Ingratiate is Steven A. Smith favorite word but he’s right keep Kuzma trade Zo he can’t shoot and once he gets to the hole he’ll miss or pass it...great defender and great court vision but my guy Kuz is about his buckets and didn’t need the whole dad hype me up bcuz I’m not that good package deal

  • Banana?

  • Kuzma is life time LAKER - here to stay - PERIOD !

  • What a miss from Lakers,whaaaatttttt are you out of your mind, Paul is not doing enough for the thunders kuzma should stay period

  • trade brandon please please trade that man and josh hart spends 43 min on the floor and scores 5 points and he can't guard any body please trade lonzo you can trade his a 2x

  • ⚓️🏀👕👕🏀🏀🏀🏀pa-tv.com/tv/ਵੀਡੀਓ-QnHYR6Qx5ao.html

  • Molly😍😍😍😍😍😍❤️🌹💍

  • Lakers should offer hart ball Ingram and 4 first rounders. I have a hard time believing the pelicans say no to that. also allows lakers to keep kuzma

  • Lonzo (lavar) Ball trade that sucker!

  • They do NOT need a Superstar like these fools keep saying. The Lakers lost to Cleveland without Lebron. Let them go through the fire. Let them sow and grow. LeBron will love it come playoff and finals THIS YEAR! A lot of this rhetoric will be on my compilation video at the end of the season and postseason when the Lakers win the FINALS. Yep, I said it! The Lakers are the best team in the NBA right NOW. If LeBron can get to the finals with K. Love and the funny bunch, he can win the FINALS with the deep bench he has NOW!

  • Ingram is the one they need to get rid of. The kid holds the ball for too long. If he's going to attack the basket he's got to be quick about it or pass the ball. I hate watching the lakers move the ball well until it comes to Ingram and he'll dribble like six times trying to figure out what he wants to do. Let lonzo, lebron and Rondo facilitate the offense. Ingram needs to catch and shoot, catch and pass, or catch and dribble penetrate, just like Kuzma.

  • Lonzo ball is going to be a great player. Court vision, basketball IQ, athletisism, defense, rebounding. It was not a mistake to draft him. The only hole in his game is shot creating / scoring. If he can fix that part of his game he'll be an all star. Only people who dont know the game of basketball or harbor a grudge because of his dad think hes trash.

  • Kuzma will be an NBA All-Star within 2 yrs keep him & pay him

  • Why are we giving lonzo ball a pass, he has games where he scores 0 points in 36min. That is disturbingly low.

  • NO TRADES...

  • Max Kellerman has no clue. And please stop with the defense crap. BI doesn't play any defense.

  • Forget the offense....the king is here, lets get some exoerienced guys(that can defend)bcuz our defense is shit...our offense was never a problem........

  • So hot so cold where is the loyalty? Keep everyone,we got a winner, we been together for a half-season, you guys forget we beat the warriors twice the second time without LeBron for most of the time. The Cavs just had something to prove they've been made to look like their chomps,this game meant more to the Cavs and it did to the Lakers that's so obvious LeBron will come back they'll make the playoffs they might even win the chip this year!!

  • Lakers made the same mistake they made with Paul George with Leonard, Spurs at that moment asked for Hart, Ingram and some picks and the Lakers wouldnt trade because they thought Kawhi would go there on his own. In the end they are stucked with too many young players that are too overhyped and too green to do a decent playoff run.

  • Kuzma drops 40 now everybody got eyes on him he was averaging almost 20 as a rookie stop sleeping

  • How the fuck is Tatum better than kuzma

  • These guys acting like AD leaving is a given like he hasn’t said in ANY way that he wants to leave

  • If any ones getting traded it’s going to be bi

  • I think they should go for it

  • Lonzo is turning into a force on D, dont trade him. Kuzma is turning into a force on offence, dont trade him either. Anyone else is fair game.

  • They shouldn't trade Kuzma. The real question is would Magic trade him, and that answer I think is yes

  • Stephen A Smith worships Kyle Kuzma

  • i’m sick on max he dumb

  • Stephen A’s Hair needs to be traded to Bron’s hair.

  • How the hell can LA get AD if u will not surrender Kuzma?

  • dude like w eek ago he said nobody is safe lol

  • This guy needs to stf up cuz Lonzo is the best passer in NBA fight me bro

  • Put some respect on Lonzo name, he gon be rondo/jason kidd 2.0

  • Stephen A. is a poor mans Ludacris....

  • Max dumb asf

  • Banana?

  • Biggest mistake signing Lonzo?? So much disrespect. Can we let the brother have a few more years before we start saying he's a bust?

  • Indiana had no intention trading Paul George to the Lakers period that wasn’t a miss Larry Bird shut that down

  • Ingram might stay but Zo Will Be Traded

  • KD To The Knicks Confirmed

  • I just love how y’all be making 2k trades for AD. Y’all must think the pelicans are going to trade him to La just cuz he say he wants to go there and he not signing no where else teams don’t care someone will take that chance to win a title and sway a player. And he ain’t sitting out and balling any less no matter what jersey he wearing. Lastly trading for AD will hollow the team out and if AD can’t carry the pelicans what makes you think a hollowed la roster is going to do with AD if lebron gets injured. He a fool if he go be a robin when he already Batman

  • The media need to assemble for Leflop another super team.

  • Smh lonzo makes basketball so easy for other Lakers. I Dont know how people dont see it. Look at how many leak out points kuz n Ingram get from lonzo full court passes. Lets not mention how much he sets up zubac n McGee Lately or beastly 19 points in 19 min. Watch lonzo on those buckets. Yea he a horrible free throw shooter n last year he couldn't shoot or finish at rim. Out of those 3 categories he fix 2 of them, its called progression. Rondo didn't learn to shoot till like 7 yrs in.

  • Lakers are a PG away, they just not any PG or one that's marginally better than Lonzo they need a dynamite offensive PG who can shoot and spread the floor but also get jiggy off the dribble, Dame Lillard is who I'm thinking he'd be the perfect PG for Lakeshow and would pair great with LeBron, trade is highly unlikely but I'd unload anyone other than LeBron for Dame. Lonzo, Ingram, 1st round pick for Dame in a hypothetical world.

  • This is funny, Kuz is not as good as people claim and has cost the Lakers games with his jacking and selfish play and no defense.. He is simply a Rashard Lewis light player. Ingram is the better player of the 2, way better defender, way better 1 on 1 player, more heart and determination..

  • All the Lakers need to do is stick together and let Ball play the 2 role hart at da 1 Kuzma at the 3 an James at 4 cause ain't ah 4 in da game that can hold em #OhyGeez

  • Finally someone calls it as it is.. the lakers fell into the hype with lonzo. Lonzo is an okay player who has the talent to be great but he seems to not have the passion for it like kuzma. When you look at the talent they passed up for Lonzo who are already better then him even markannen is a better player then him.. I see exactly what Stephen A is saying

  • HODL FOR KUZ

  • Lol tatum better than kuzma. Good one max

  • Max is hating, Kuz is '99 Kobe

  • This is obvious, which is why I'd be surprised if they can get AD without trading Kuz away. Kuzma>Ingram

  • Kyle Kuzma is the second best players in the Lakers roster so,don't trade him with any of the superstars.Next season he will be the NBA Superstar

  • why are you always talking about LA??? I've never heard you talk about Aldridge and the spurs, aldridge is unstopable inside, very dangerous to play against in the playoff, Add AD to the lakers and it will not be enough to beat the warriors,Spurs might beat the lakers in the playoff.

  • why still talking about paul george? he's where he is. don't have have other topics?

  • SAS looking like he misses Skip Bayless. SAS should sign a Max deal with FS1.

  • This the same nigga that said pack him up and let him go

  • I am so glad u 2 are in Media and not GM's....and pleasw hurry up deadline so these bitch assd mofos can talk about something else other than trading LAKER players....

  • When will Max just stop talking about basketball ffs

  • STEPHEN A SHIT man what are you smoking!!? Are u DRUNK!! Trade LONZO BALL..LONZO BALL WILL BE ONE OF THE GREATEST POINT GUARDS of ALL TIME!! BLASTED BASKET BALL DUNCE!

  • Restore!🤣🤣

  • Best player in the near future will be Giannis. He'll over take Lebron very soon.

  • No

  • Kuzma and Ball thay can play with or without LeBron..pls don't trade the Laker feature.

  • I dont know whats going on

  • i say lets stay with the young guys because they will be the futures best players

  • we don't need the star.we need the championship. fans from Micronesia.

  • yes don't make a trade..Kuzma stay in Laker.

  • Max we dont give a fucc about Paul George

  • Lonzo has to go asap,molly you are getting to be anoring let the fellows taik then give your input,stop trying to over talk or talking at the same time

  • Fuck Paul George

  • Lakers were on the right path with the young talent before they decided to join the Lebron circus

  • Funny debate... it seems they desagre with eachother but is just different points

  • Lakers should keep who they have. They just need more growth and they will win it all

  • Swear Max is actually right this time but Stephen just has to disagree. Like I feel like they have to disagree and make a pointless argument just for the sake of the show.

  • D
