    Just pause it at 0:02 and look at her posture, face. She’s leaning back, feeling defensive, she’s ready to rant about something. Her face is saying “i don’t care about what you’re saying, I’ll just ignore every word”. Just very unprofessional. ESPN the trashiest sports news out there.

  2. Mike Lamb says:

    Beadle’s a spurs fan. Probably not the best idea to have a favorite team as an analyst. Thus you get a butt hurt blonde.

  3. Chimela Ihedoro says:

    When sport analyst think they know everything that is going on in a players’ life.

  4. Mike M says:

    It’s clear Kawhi’s people aren’t doing him any favors. Someone close to him needs to talk him off the ledge instead of gassing him up. Yeah he’s a great player, but grow up and at least act like a man.

    • Got it for The Low says:

      I’m curious as to what you mean by act like a man as well. Wouldn’t it be relative? Because you saying that doesn’t make me identify you as a man since I view that as behavior more associated with kids in high school.

    • Backup Account says:

      What has Kawhi done wrong?
      He tried to play but did not feel healthy. Who knows his body better than him?
      He has not said one negative word about the spurs, the fans or the city of san antonio, yet the amount of vitriol aimed towards him is outrageous.
      Says more about Spurs fans in general than Kawhi, and I don’t blame him for wanting to leave. I look forward to him bustin the spurs @$$es for many years to come.

    • justin morales says:

      He is. He doesn’t need to say anything. His life, his choices.

    • Haitian King says:

      Ima come to
      Your job and tell
      You this lol

    • BIG WORM says:

      Mike M he is acting like a man he told them I DON’T WANT TO PLAY HERE ANYMORE! HOW IS THAT NOT BEING A MAN WE’VE SEEN GRANT HILL THE PISTONS FUCKED HIM UP I THOMAS BOSTON FUCKED HIM UP IF ONE DR TOLD U SOMETHING AND YOUR BODY TELLING U SOMETHING US U BEING A MAN IS GOING TO GET A 2ND OPINION IT’S CALLED COMMON SENSE BUT CAUSE IT’S THEM WIN A RING EVERY 5 OR 6 YRS HE’S NOT BEING A MAN THAT’S BULLSHIT POP AIN’T NO PRAYER BOOK

  5. MPIsofly says:

    i agree..as talented as Kawhi; he isn’t leadership material.

    • Chris Self says:

      You dont need to a leader to be the best player on the team.

    • Devante Ashley says:

      Chris Self exactly..Durant is the best on GS but Green is the leader..

    • MPIsofly says:

      If you’re paid like a top guy, then you voice must command like a top guy..He gets paid like a top guy, has a championship pedigree and can’t communicate clearly to guys he went to war with?

    • Jm Santiago says:

      MPIsofly No, he gets paid for being able to put the ball in the basket and stop the other guy from doing the same. This isn’t all about narrative. We scrutinize these top players for not being leaders when some of them don’t want to be.

    • MPIsofly says:

      higher the $ greater the responsibilities; in any job.

  6. Jayden Woods says:

    She’s “ovary-acting”…

  7. Eric Woodard says:

    It’s not that he’s leaving, it’s a business. But really? Hiding from the team? Not speaking you’re own mind?

    • drizzle dizzle says:

      i thought kevin love recently said he wanted to continue playing with lebron? but, i could be wrong

    • Jermaine says:

      He’s essentially acting like he has a no trade clause.. without having a no trade clause

    • Demarcus Jackson says:

      Y’all just mad he’s not saying what y’all want lol fuck what y’all want

    • SwizzleDizzle says:

      Kawhi doesnt even talk anyways lol the dude is practically mute

    • Stephen The13th says:

      Eric Woodard Acting like a punk. Man up Kawhi what’s so hard? Is he really so mentally weak that a minor comment from Tony Parker hurt his feelings? Open your mouth franchise player. He didn’t handle this well at all. Pop had to run him down in New York? Go ahead and let him go Buford. He needs to fulfill his contract then they’ll trade him. San Antonio is the last team who should dealing with this type of crap.

  8. Jerry Huang says:

    I like the Spurs but if I were a bigger fan I would be mad at Kawhi too, only because he refuse to speak up and communicate to solve the problem.

    • Chris Grissom says:

      He wants to go, let him go

    • Jerry Huang says:

      Mari then it’s on Kawhi. His uncle reps him, he put him in charge. Kawhi has every opportunity to speak for himself.

    • BIG WORM says:

      Jerry Huang this shit ain’t knew these teams been getting away with treating players wrong he doesn’t what too play for the spurs ERIC Dickerson didn’t want to play for the rams no more they’re just mad that he’s going to leave and they ain’t getting nothing in return pop ain’t no prayer book? Yall let him get away with BULLY N THE MEDIA HE GETS A PASS FOR SOME REASON I HOPE HE SITS THE WHOLE YR AND LEAVE THEM WIT NOTHING

    • Mari says:

      Funfun6000 lol 😂

    • Eldest Gruff says:

      I recall his own coach questioning the dude’s heart and trying to use the media to shame him into playing while he was “hurt”. Whether or not he was hurt that’s not at all the professional way to go about something like that. I don’t fault him a bit for not wanting to talk with them.

  9. PROJECTTROJANWARRIOR says:

    Hey Michelle… GOOD JOB. I’m now a fan.

    Now show more titcake

  10. Abraham T. says:

    Man… this is all KDs fault.

  11. Just Magic says:

    Who put a rasengan up her ass this morning

  12. Oj Ferguson says:

    If the Spurs “made him” make another him 🤷🏾‍♂️ Simple.. ya Spurs fans shouldn’t be worried

  13. Jiju j says:

    “I’m so over this guy.” Over what? He doesn’t even do anything. lol. It’s the media who’s giving him unwanted attention. It this guy breathes wrong the pundents are all over it.

  14. Reformed1 says:

    My Spurs paid this man 18 million for just 9 freakin games last season and this dude was playing peek a boo and hide n seek the WHOLE YEAR…smh…GTHO

    • faris abubakar says:

    • Dystopia1980 says:

    • Ralfys World says:

    • Unleash- Hell says:

    • The Mold says:

      Reformed1
      I love seeing you spurs fans get upset….things been running smooth for 20 yrs and for the first time your organization has an issue and you all freak out….spoiled asf….try being a knicks fan lol

  15. red red says:

    kawia being stupid she right

  16. tuluvota says:

    Michelle Beadle you are right on… must be nice to cash those checks and not have the respect to at least sit down and let your employer (who is paying you) know how you feel … at some point you gotta grow up!!!

    • tuluvota says:

      Booty Quesò lol what does that have to do with anything… lmbo…

    • Finder Man says:

      has to do with this new day and age, we don’t live in the age where employer loyalty is everything, the new generation has seen how badly people are getting fucked over by being “loyal” and not playing hardball.

    • Sumit Vinod says:

      I’m 18 yrs old and I’m a full time student, work two part time jobs and have frustrations in my life both physically and mentally. How come this dude ( my former top 5 fav player) is unappreciative of the employer that believed in him since he was a rookie, developed him to a superstar and are paying him millions of dollars. I don’t have the luxury to treat everyone in authority with disrespect and whenever I see ppl doing that and getting away with that I’m get so angry. I never expected this from kawhi and I’m not even a spurs fan.

    • Mondoeray Moore says:

      tuluvota i don’t like this lady, but she not exactly wrong on this1.

    • XxHero88xX's Gaming channel says:

      you don’t got to do anything

  17. Elliott Stevens says:

    “They got some BIG OL’ women down there in San Antonio”- Charles Barkley

  18. Kunal Duggal says:

    Kawhi: (Nothing)
    Beadle: Really Kawhi, you’re going to the Lakers? WTF dud
    Kawhi: (Nothing)
    Beadle: Wow, you sound like such an obnoxious diva!!!!

    No wonder she’s single at 42.

    • Jay Reed says:

      This is Beadle 1o1 next she will say he is a woman beater we seen this playbook from her.

    • Leoniswolf says:

      So true 😫😂🤣

    • Nyle Winston says:

      Kunal Duggal she isn’t wrong so what’s your point ?

    • Yo Mammas Boo says:

      Nyle Winston shut the fuck up simp ass nigga.

    • Vee King says:

      Yo Mammas Boo
      So a man is a simp cause he agrees with a woman? You see how stupid you sound kid? You’re either a child or a bitch made faggot who prob doesn’t have a women anyway. I guess yo faggot ass only agree with men right? You stupid fuck?

      What she said was the truth and I’m def not a simp for agreeing with her. Dude cashing those checks so the professional thing to do is communicate with your employer. That’s just being right. She not the only person tired of hearing about this dude.

  19. Lenext Owens says:

    You can disagree with how she said it but Michelle Beadle was exactly right

    • Got it for The Low says:

      Nah. She expressed an opinion. Just say you agree with her opinion. She’s not right.

    • False Prophet says:

      Not even close to right. The spurs ran kawhi out of town, and now their fans (her included) are acting like kawhi is the bad guy.

  20. JayLeezy says:

    Michelle reminds me of why I’m single and happy
