Stephen A Smith doesn’t have to be a real analyst these days, because this isn’t real basketball. This is glorified pick-up basketball. This is Lebron going to the Lakers and saying I pick AD. Then all of a sudden AD’s relationship with his franchise deteriorates and they’re forced to trade him to LA. This is KD saying I pick Kyrie and James Harden. Then Harden relationship with Houston deteriorates and they’re forced to trade him to Brooklyn. I don’t blame SAS for taking break from real analysis. This is a era of superstars teaming up and becoming over-night champions. What’s there to analyze? It’s a waste of time analyzing paper-champions. Wait til the LBJ’s and KD’s leave the game, and then get back to real analysis when the game is the hands of Dame Lilliards and Giannis and the real ballers. Right now cheap tabloid gossip coverage would do. Keep up the good work SAS.

To all the lames that keep on bringing up how SAS said Kyrie should retire, he never said Kyrie should retire because of his actualabilities or lack there of. He said he should retire to get his mind right. For his mental health. So just because he felt like Kyrie should retire doesn’t mean he can’t feel like Kyrie is fun to watch

Stop crowning teams that haven't won a 7 GAME NBA FINAL series against healthy competition (playing hard af). That's not how we do this. The NETS have won NOTHING. They have NO HARDWARE. WIN FIRST. MAX WAS 100% ON POINT. RESPECT THE DEFENDING CHAMPS.

The Orlando Magic will be the only match up for the Nets in the future Markelle/Harden, ColeAnthony/Kyrie, JonIssac/KD, AaronGordon/Harris, Vucevic'/Jordan. Magic bench of Fournier,Ross,Okeke,MCW,Bamba,Bacon,Birch,Aminu, Michael Carter Williams will defensive BODIES!!!!! Nets bench weak ! This Young Magic team is coming NEXT SEASONS . the Nba about to get fun. Even LBJ had a kryptonite and KD's only match up, that is a carbon copy of himself is Jonathan Issac aka The MINISTER OF DEFENSE

I think one of the three need to pull a manu genobli! And that would lock it up. I’m talking 6 man of the year off the bench. That would wreck the game like the warriors with iguadala and Livingston coming off the bench situation
