    2 key differences: Warriors were 73-9, Lakers were 37-45. KD was coming off a loss to the Warriors that he joined. Kawhi is coming of winning a championship.

  2. Ay Jay says:

    kawhi most likely forgot all about free agency ?

  3. Dylan Ramirez says:

    The only thing that’s weak Stephen A. is your hairline

  4. King Allen says:

    NBA 2k rating if it happened.
    Lebron: 98
    Kawhi: 97
    A.D: 96
    ??‍♂️ Damn

  5. shady shady says:

    Kawhi just beat everybody and won finals mvp. He can join the 96 bulls if he wants to. FOH Stephen A

    • Tommy Mc says:

      No it’s a fucking pussy move, for lerbon. Everyone likes khwai

    • Geeovanta Rogers says:

      Was everyone saying this shit when golden state got kd, sound like torn apart warrior fans. Kawhi can do what he wants just like Kevin

    • 4evr1iamhim says:

      @kc kc it’s not soft you just don’t like it and that goes for everybody that like your comment you all are probably just mad because he’s not going to your team.

    • Jay Acox says:

      Was it a weak move for you to join Skip Bayless and then take over after he put you on after all your shows got cancelled? ?? FOH

    • 4evr1iamhim says:

      @FBI Agent I was on a pace to be president of the United States yet I am on YouTube exchanging dumb comments with you.

  6. Ammar Barri says:

    5:50 Stephen A Smith face. I’M DEAD BRUH LMFAO

  7. A. Guyton says:

    Just when I thought life was getting good and then BOOM, Molly Returns. ??‍♂️?

  8. gregdono95 says:

    Finaly molly said something good!!!?????? Kawhi in a interview said he was never a Lakers fan that’s fake news! Good job molly!

  9. Mike Arredondo says:

    AI carries the 76ers his whole career and never won a ring imagine if he would of gave up on the team and city and gone out to chance rings he be considered a top 10 in nba history instead of a top 50

    • Mike Arredondo says:

      John Thompson I know he would be if he would have some rings on his hand the man crossed over MJ in his rookie year

    • MillionsSaenz says:

      Most of these players give up on front offices, not teams.

    • BigHumble says:

      Exactly, he never won. Kawhi just took a mediocre team to a championship. He has accomplished the highest point with the raptors, he’s not giving up on them. He should be able to move wherever he wants to

    • G2 DC says:

      BigHumble Mediocre? They were the 1st seed that year. They just needed LBJ to go to the west and an extra piece. Other than that I agree. Khawhi doesn’t owe them anything.

    • Mike Arredondo says:

      G2 DC he was dying to leave San Antonio for LA but pop wasn’t having it so he sent Leonard up north as far as he could away from LA

  10. Michael Cataquiz says:

    Stephen A is a good basketball analytics. But in this topic. Emotions are high for him. SMH

    • erik3423 says:

      Nothing he said was wrong though, if Kawhi joins the Lakers they are going to the ship and there will be no competition. If that happens there is no point in watching just like when KD joined the Warriors.

    • KniGht1st says:

      Yeah because Knicks refused to offer a max contract to KD, and KD and Kyrie went to the team that is 20 minutes away.

  11. Joey Yared says:

    Max: Kawhi, LeBron, AD, Steph, KD all on Lakers would win the NBA finals next year

    SAS: you’re wrong and here’s why….

  12. Fresh Nation says:

    4 days ago he said he wouldn’t accept this as a weak move when Jay Williams said so, now SAS flip flopping ?

  13. Treyten Johnson says:

    Not as weak as your New York Knicks trading? Porzingis and getting nothing for him ?

  14. Breon Mitchell says:



    I see y’all playing the word game sidekick stop hatin Steven A the Knicks are bums

  16. BLACK Mon says:

    Are we forgetting KD and OKC blew a 3-1 lead to golden state?

  17. CaliGrown11 says:

    Bobby Portis. Julius Randle. Wayne Ellington. that’s a weak move

  18. OG PANTONE says:

    Nothing is weaker than KD joining GSW ???‍♂️

    • BigHumble says:

      Ron Jeremy are you kidding? If Durant didn’t choke they would’ve been in the Finals and had a chance to win the championship? As Westbrook would say “What? What are you talking about”

    • MyContentIsTrash says:

      BigHumble so Lebron who y’all call the best in the world is now just a 35 yr old and isn’t Curry injury prone due to ankle problems ?

    • 4evr1iamhim says:

      @Ron Jeremy okay so you won’t a team’s GM to scout young talent hope they don’t burst stay healthy and years later hope the team can compete… whatever… I say Kawhi do you think young brother control your own destiny write your own story and prosper in your earned freedom.

    • Big Poppy says:

      @4evr1iamhim okay but in real life its KD but let me ask you this…
      This year when the warriors beat the rockets without injuries ran through the blazers..and then got to the finals and KD got his last ring and finals mvp….9h wait that didnt happen KD got injured and then got injured again
      So obviously we cant count damaged goods as the best player in the world….good try tho bro

    • Big Poppy says:

      @BigHumble you sound foolish…Let’s just say AD DOES get injured…
      Using your own logic (Kawhi took scrubs to the finals and won) going there with the best player in the world…hello use your brain bro
      Also if injuries is the only thing that can really stop your team…that’s the exact same as the fuck8ng warriors jesus christ NBA fans are stupid as fucking all hell

  19. GMCworldwide1979 says:

    The thumbnail is PERFECT!

    Khawi is pointing at SAS like “WTF is he talking about” ???

  20. Vlad Menard says:

    He just lead a team to a championship. KD didn’t do that. Kawhi could do whatever he wants ??‍♂️
