    Max’s position on this show is starting to look like shannon’s position on that other show

  2. Yvonne Nitollano on May 16, 2021 at 3:03 am

    They can easily be beaten. It’s just makes me laugh how they think they were so great in that game. Knicks could have beaten them but they miss their shots and they got a lucky shot. So,please stop praising them

  3. Vine Labratories on May 16, 2021 at 3:08 am

    Creators; I can’t take Max seriously when Molly song in the background all the time thank you

  4. J Fitz on May 16, 2021 at 3:11 am

    poor LeBron needs a month off and a bubble to win

  5. Yvonne Nitollano on May 16, 2021 at 3:15 am

    Too old

    lebitch

  7. Leo on May 16, 2021 at 3:19 am

    Lebums Reign is coming to an end hallelujah.

  8. Losinyono Dominic on May 16, 2021 at 3:22 am

    He wants to pull a Jordan comeback

  9. ethan whitehouse on May 16, 2021 at 3:22 am

    First he gonna decline to a kawhi level superstar where he is elite but not world best, maybe top 5. Which is still crazy

    Then a high level all star, then an all star, and will probably remain at least a fringe level all star for as long as he chooses to play. He’s going to be very good for a long time.

  10. Captain7484 on May 16, 2021 at 3:22 am

    Dude, Lebron out here acting like he tore his achilles like Kobe… HAHAHA… Dude just has a twisted ankle…. This is kinda hilarious.

  11. Jjhunts22 on May 16, 2021 at 3:23 am

    God forbid Max disagree with Steven, you can tell if Steve Could he’d pull that race card every single day. I’m a black man and I’d rather watch Max then Steve is a disgrace

  12. Cris Carter on May 16, 2021 at 3:23 am

    Black people age slower than white folks googled it!! They talk about lebron slowing down name one white player who was a threat at this age you have none

  13. Chris P. Bacon on May 16, 2021 at 3:24 am

    STFU MOLLY with your dumb sighing lololol

  14. Kirby Awesome on May 16, 2021 at 3:25 am

    LeBron is acting strange for some reason. I’m a Warriors’ fan, however, I like LeBron. I’m concerned about my man!

  15. Laufiel Dela Cruz on May 16, 2021 at 3:26 am

    Lebron is actually just making all these excuses to avoid getting embarrassed in the Playoffs again. He’s not a Great Leader as MJ was.
    MICHAEL JORDAN has his PRIDE as the Real KING of his KINGDOM.
    He doesn’t leave his Army and doesn’t fail his People.
    HE FIGHTS. HE WINS. HE CELEBRATE WITH HIS KINGDOM’S WELL DESERVED VICTORY.
    That’s why MJ will always be the G.O.A.T. PERIOD.

  16. Yessir Yiggit on May 16, 2021 at 3:27 am

    steven a. please give martin lawerence his antics back

  17. War Tape on May 16, 2021 at 3:28 am

    Lebron formed a super team and only won 2-4 and y’all put him up there

  18. Kevin Krogger on May 16, 2021 at 3:28 am

    Who cares about LeChina James. Irrelevant… not a Laker.

  19. NiteOwl on May 16, 2021 at 3:29 am

    People are looking at it as can he play until 40 but it should be 38 as he came in the league when he was 18. So if he played until 40 that would be 22 seasons which is super rare and most guys that do that are role players by that time.

  20. RenaldoSeguin on May 16, 2021 at 3:31 am

    There’s a reason everyone is so impressed with Tom Brady playing at his age- it’s an anomaly, not the norm.

  21. Matty Lee on May 16, 2021 at 3:33 am

    I think he meant he’s not going to be in his prime anymore because he’s getting older

  22. Roman Hill on May 16, 2021 at 3:34 am

    He Will BE A 100%

  23. Yvonne Nitollano on May 16, 2021 at 3:39 am

    Why are the Lakers acting like they did so well when the knicks almost beat them. They won with a lucky shot.

  24. Real Skills on May 16, 2021 at 3:40 am

    Absolutely father of time has caught up with LBJ like it will with everyone bcuz he is human rite ? That’s exactly why at this point in his career he’s having a hard time playing a full quarter and not to mention starting the season bck so early didn’t help his condition. I actually noticed the huffing and buffing at the end of last season when he kept taking himself out.

  25. Victor Hardin on May 16, 2021 at 3:41 am

    Molly. Please be quiet and do what your mouth was made to do.

  26. Isaiah Walker on May 16, 2021 at 3:43 am

    stephen didnt even answer the question

  27. k k on May 16, 2021 at 3:43 am

    The only reason why is because he wont sit out long enough for his body to fully recover just like he did with his groin came back and it continued to bother him hes moving smart less and less its sad to see but it is what it is who cares about a championship if its going to ruin your career from that point forward smh

  28. Jjhunts22 on May 16, 2021 at 3:44 am

    Both big racists !!! Lebron and Uncle Steve do nothing for the community but talk… Max speak up mi man! Stop being scared to disagree

  29. Neal Shields on May 16, 2021 at 3:44 am

    You can’t play forever…

  30. KLEFUS MCDONALD on May 16, 2021 at 3:44 am

    Luka is hitting those stats ascending. Give him the mvp, and stop moving the goalposts.

  31. lorenciandrej on May 16, 2021 at 3:46 am

    LeXiBron JamesPing is….a man we have to admire. At least all media forces us for years to admire him. This days are numbered.

  32. Houston International Media on May 16, 2021 at 3:47 am

    Doesn’t matter how much you don’t like Lebron, it’s a sad moment for all basketball of basketball when you realize that he retirement just got that much closer

  33. Yvonne Nitollano on May 16, 2021 at 3:48 am

    They need to retire

  34. Elian Soler on May 16, 2021 at 3:51 am

    I Like Lebron

  35. Rafael De La Nuez on May 16, 2021 at 3:51 am

    If LeBron is 80% that’s enough…but not to win the title…lol

  36. tecumseh g on May 16, 2021 at 3:56 am

    he use to never get injured

  37. Prize Man on May 16, 2021 at 3:57 am

    Kellerman is a LeBron hater that’s very obvious

  38. Lawrence on May 16, 2021 at 3:59 am

    I hate lebum as much as the next guy but lets be honest. Hes not wrong. The man is not in his prime anymore. Nagging injuries linger longer and never completely go away.

  39. Static Shock on May 16, 2021 at 4:01 am

    LeBron is in decline lmao

  40. James Ross on May 16, 2021 at 4:01 am

    Lebron is on the decline it’s happening slowly ! It happens to every athlete ! It’s Father Time creeping in

  41. Tom Brown on May 16, 2021 at 4:02 am

    Moderators aren’t supposed to pick sides….Molly picks a side almost every episode, she’s been doing it for years lmao I’ve grown to love it
