      How's the prediction working out so far? AD not even in the MVP discussion and the PELs would be out of the playoffs if it started today lol

    2. Monty Nance

      I only clicked on this to say fuck Kellerman thanks ESPN for the liberalization of sports I can't watch ESPN anymore.

    3. Ray Quin

      I hope NBA will not allow to win the most popular player to win the MVP, but the most deserving. Max is right this time!

    4. Ray Quin

      I believe in my opinion, this time Max is right!

    5. AI PLAYER

      They've been saying AD was supposed to be the best for like the last 5 years. Is he even a 1? Seems like a sidekick

    6. David Beer

      Max kellerman sucks donkey dick

    7. T. Hamm

      Dude fuck this guy

    8. ya boy Philly

      Max is stupid kd is better than Ad and lebron is better than both of them

    9. ya boy Philly

      Unibrow better than king james boooy what you smoking

    10. William Bowman

      ESPN are commies u show sucks

    11. Baljit Singh

      This is crazy! These guys make money by discussing LeBron and sensationalizing every thing against. They flip flop so much. Lebron shouldn’t be compared against anyone, he understands and pay respect to all the greats that came before him. He strives to be better every day. #StopHate

    12. Aaron S.

      1. Lebron 2. KD 3. AD

    13. JDiks

      Who the fuck is Anthony Davis?

    14. iAM3xiT

      I don’t even really like lebron but max is smoking crack... seriously he needs to be drug tested

    15. Justin Iwane

      Max’s point at the very end is actually very good

    16. howtowhat

      2:38 lol

    17. j p

      Max fuck u

    18. skyhero223

      Davis just wants money Giannis is the only one that has a chance of surpassing him ....after Lebron leaves

    19. Julian Torres

      I've been hearing the same racket for 5 years now... yet Harden is killing the league and he can't get a mention for a top 5 player. AD will never be the best in the world not if Harden is in the league

    20. Sean Johnson

      Perfect team for anthony Davis is Portland honestly imagine if dame n cj had AD to lob to when they getting double or imagine if AD had dame n cj he could kick it to when he getting tripled team in the paint knock down deep 3 point shooters who could create they own shot from anywhere

    21. J S


    22. Denniz Dennett

      I am so confused by this man at times

    23. roger johnson


    24. James Lamour

      I agree with Max

    29. sabrina brown

      I am serious as a heart attack, I want a meeting soon and am tired of living in some bubble. My personal space has been violated over and over, these people are rude, have team members that are doing way too much, stop involving my family members, keep them out of it and cut off communication from the bad People to them, I have no money, no life, no travels, no damn freedom! Someone should want to speak with me soon after everything I have gone through with cyberbulling, cyberpunks and this crazy wrongful Agenda! 1. I want house THAT IS peaceful 2. Someone should step up and talk to me, U owe me 💰. 3. Get out of my personal space and stop demanding all these concessions! 4. Get her a Taxi and not through me, if I am able to get a car, I will take her to train or whatever just to cut out the middle man. I need the middle man GONE FOR GOOD! 5. I AM just one woman and their is a TEAM of U. 6. Stop throwing men in my face this is not how U start a romance, relationship or connection, this is my job not a club or market, whomever is spying on me get out of my personal space because U are violating my civil rights. 7. Stop being an arrogant F Face, these two know I am not interested in them, only one dude and if I don't get the chance to meet him, I still will never ever find myself liking U two SOB's AGAIN!!! Meeting soon ..... please I need a life and chance to find my own damn man, don't like Y'all picks, accept for 🐈 Daddy, all the rest SUCK!

    30. Stephen Aleman

      Anthony Davis aint winning shit tho he is sorry af he should have left New Orleans

    31. Sean Johnson

      Pelicans not going anywhere just trade AD to Portland please

    32. mbp85

      Lebron's career will be like those WB cartoon characters when they run off a cliff. He's in that stage where he's still floating in the air, but he's already over the hill. If not this season, definitely next season gravity will kick in.

    33. MDL SHOW Mohamed Diallo Live

      Out of subject: Can @espn tell @maxkellerman to never say again that #soccer is boring & inferior to #football. It turned off my friends & I. We stopped watching @firsttake asap. As immigrants we learned to love #nflfootball which we had no interest in. Statements like his are not good for @espn

    34. WolfofWexlerStreet

      By Anthony Davis? Ima use dey own argument against them. What the fuck has Anthony Davis done. Fuck your agenda


      Max has been saying this for 10 years it feels like

    36. jumpstart55million

      The Greek Freak and Ben Simmons are going to dominate the league when Lebron falls off.

    37. Michael Pabros

      ESPN is weak and pathetic.

    38. Kyle Abjelina

      Thats like saying Mj was eclipsed by Duncan

    39. Duke Holidai

      "Adroitly I might add"

    40. xDropSquad- -

      AD officially the most overrated player on ESPN first take

    41. Misael Cartagena

      I thought ad was supposed to be the best last season. They said this 4 seasons ago

    42. Poke' Baller Blue

      AD hasn't even been to a WCF yet stop it.

      1. Dreshaun Matthews

        Poke' Baller Blue he doesn't have help KD Only went with Russ and Harden not to mention team usa which is the Golden State Warriors

    43. Christopher Thomas

      Carmelo Anthony for MVP

    44. Vito Gloden

      Lmao black dude be treating white dude

    45. Manu-Camus

      Wow this guy is retarded! And is hard to make more stupid remarks than Stephen.

    46. MoneyIsPower

      Is it because Giannis play in Milwaukee cause all these first take mfs be sleeping on dude so Anthony Davis better then Giannis? And Giannis only 23? Come on now first take sound crazy ashell

    47. Chance Terry

      didn't max say this same thing last year?

    48. joshtj44

      Getting bounced out in the first round?


      I actually agree

    50. sabrina brown

      I don't anyone messing with ME in this 🏠 PERIOD!!!! I tired of coming home to have so one giving me a vibe or expectations I should be doing what they want me to do!!!! This is HARASSMENT as far I am concern, particularly in my private space and what not! I am done with THESE two VERY DEMANDING gentlemen and U know the two, one is short coming from God Forsaken Small Town and the other U know very well! These people are doing too much and I have sacrificed already too damn much of my life for NOTHING. I would like these people to scram, hit the road, go away, get U some business, find someone else, just leave me the heck ALONE! THIS IS GETTING OLD ALREADY, I don't want anyone waking me up in the middle of the night anymore as well.

    51. The Fresh Peddler - Beats For People Who Hate Radio

      Randle will get you 20/10 averages and play defense. Rondo is very good but randle is a jumper away from being pretty much unstoppable. The dude just bullies the fuck out of everyone, is highly efficient in the paint and can run the floor. You wanna bully gsw but let go an enforcer like that. The lakers were foolish to let him walk in this dry market where it was unlikely his rfa would have been run up and by that time kawhi didnt look likely and pg13 was gone . You cant pay lbj 38.5 million and not start thinking about value. Randle would certainly be a better value than pg13 @ 35M and kawhi has a season to go and a bunch of fed flags to move past. If that guy gets a jumper and then goes to gsw to replace dg when he gets too expensive, it aint going to look good. He and davis will be a force on both ends. For 9 mill. Thats how you do it, capitalize on a deal.

    52. rude0331

      This is funny, I think it starts with KD then layflop, and then cut the deck

    53. M Betts7

      Not only will he not pass Lebron, he won’t pass KD either. It’s just facts

      1. Jaz

        M Betts7 yea its new orleans lmao cant win there

    54. Cooking Bums

      Davis is not better than kyrie

    55. Joseph Munoz

      Stephen A quickly to disagree lmfao

    56. Absolutely Pro

      This is Giannis’ year Max

    57. hume1234561

      I hope Max is right, while I think Stephen A is.

    58. suck u mudda

      David did kill Goliath 🤺 All lakers need is someone to atleast try and limit KD scoring and u can bet were gonna have a chance,we dont need 5 all stars we just need nigga's to score the ball find the onion bag chupessss 🏀

    59. Kanguesso Kang

      I remember when Anthony Davis was supposed to have been the best player in the league in 3 years, and that was 5 years ago 🙄 No one will eclipse the king as the best all around player in the league until he retires! And when he retires he will have had the longest prime of any athlete in any sport!

    60. Ayesha Curry

      LeBron is the MVP 2019

    61. Ayesha Curry

      I thought SAS was the dumb one

    62. MAX AJ

      Lets be real Lebron should win the mvp every year until he retires.. his teams r nothing without him same nothing with da lakers.. no Lebron no playoffs

    63. I Knows It All

      Give them any youngster but brandon and kyle. A. D. Is a prefect fit

    64. Ishaan DHIR

      Factor in everything a MVP needs a storyline, a good record, and good stats which = Kawhi Leonard its written everywhere that he'll win it! Come back here when he does

    65. David lencha

      *u cant be the best if u aint ever been in a conference finals espn drunk asf*

    66. JT McWilliams

      Max needs to stop reciting hiphop lyrics and start focusing on his job as a sports "analyst". Every time he quotes some hiphop, the whole studio and everyone watching, cringes. Stop. Smdh.

    67. New Lion

      This idiot max has been saying some of the DUMBEST statements I have ever heard in sports shows!! I cant believe espn keeps this guy around. He's an other skip bayass who hates on certain player or team & never let's up. The hating is getting old & it drives sports fans away from these shows to media sports talk shows instead.

    68. Robert Kim

      Max hypnotized by that unibrow. LOL.

    69. Jon Davis

      If anybody i hate more then the warriors its the whole rest of the fukin NBA i hate them all more then the warriors

    70. Jon Davis

      Anthony loser bitch Davis is afraid to to go good team cuz people will expect him to win that’s why he wants to stay his bitch ass on the trash Pelicans

    71. Jon Davis

      Every single all star in the NBA is a bitch ass pussy MF and they cool being dominated by the warriors every season they a bunch of little bitches

    72. Jon Davis

      Max please bro who gives a fuck even if that happens

    73. carlos kidd

      Man shut yo dumb ass up

    74. La Day

      Does Molly yawn at 2:38 lol

    75. Dublin Duffell

      This is so fricking stupid

    76. C C

      Molly spoke 😂

    77. Prince Allah

      Wow that's a hell of a statement max! Yet I do get it tho Anthony Davis is a beast in all areas offense and defense

    78. Jesse Cab

      They seriously disagree just to disagree. The NFL season is here and here we go with pointless lebron debates....

    79. Ali Hirani

      Weren't we having the same conversation with KD last year? Smh LeBron not gonna get unseated until maybe he wins his next championship

    80. MrAaaaaaaaa9

      I feel like I got seriously ill watching this

    81. Devon Adams

      Max is a fuckin bum fr recognize greatness KD is the best player in the world

    82. Serinox29

      This guy says every year that another guy will eclipse Lebron. When was he right? 😏

    83. ShleepConee -

      Quamaaaaaaeeeeeee Browwwwwwwnnnnnnnn Mvp

    84. HR

      The baby Lakers? Don't you mean garbage Lakers.. and ball is not going to do shit.. he was a publicity stunt..

    85. Nate Bergeson

      Stick to boxing Max.

    86. 22Wideout AND HIDE YO W’s

      Did he just age 5 years

    87. TheTlewis3074

      Max is so full of crap...but what would the NBA be like had Lebron never gone to Miami?

    88. Stupid Monkey

      Both of these guys talk so far out their rear end it gives me a migrane. Steven Smith is especially one of those individuals who loves to hear himself talk. He cannot be wrong even when he is. I cant stand ego that big from such a tiny little man.

      1. Flashyfinancier

        +Stupid Monkey fair enough bro

      2. Stupid Monkey

        +Flashyfinancier Well i guess to most people he would be tall. Not for me. However he isnt exactly a big guy even with the height. And i think its his personality which also makes me view him as a small guy.

      3. Flashyfinancier

        Steven A is 6"1

    89. Zachariah-Bin Yisrayl

      I don't give a fkk what NOBODY says : LEBRON WILL GET EXPOSED ON DEFENSE...and nobody wants to talk about it. In the east...he was a god. But in the west...he ain't shht.

    90. Zachariah-Bin Yisrayl

      Max just called Lebron a genius. Lebron is such a genius...HE PLAYED NO DEFENSE in the finals. Very smart man...right ?? LOL

    91. miamidames

      Lol first of all I think you are WRONG!

    92. down very down

      I think Max has the stronger point here. Sorry Stephen A.

    93. Chill Bro

      Max talking out his ass

    94. Brotherly Contrarian


    95. mike brown

      I thought AD was better than Hardin last year. He is the best All around player in the league. He rebounds, plays great defense, and can score as well as anyone. Curry, Hardin, Durant, and Westbrook are no where near Davis defense. People need to count defense too. LeBron has been getting snubbed on MVP. KD, Hardin, Westbrook could not have taken Cleveland to the finals last year. LeBron should of gotten MVP last year. It was his best year other than one year in Miami.

    96. PanchitoKush Reyes

      This motherfucker higher then I am.

    97. I'm So Hoodie

      I think they create this show as a real debate were in everyone has a side that they are given and they have to debate that side. The only thing is they don’t tell you they are each given a side to debate as if they really believe in that side. Like debate class but they make it seem as though they really believe in whichever argument they are given to support

    98. I'm So Hoodie

      Are you forgetting about KD?!!! Come on man

    99. sabrina brown

      Please tell folks to stop waking me up in the middle of the night, I have to go to work, not getting much sleep, not cool borders on harassment in ones private space!!!! Thanks!

    100. cryptonian leorican

      im with skip on this one
