  • Stephen A the MVP of ESPN

  • If Russell Westbrook comes back with a three ball and still has his athleticism and James harden could share the ball they will be equal with the LA teams but I doubt it

  • Stephen A Smith is the Lebron of ESPN the way he carries this network

  • Buzz Lightyear is there to remind everyone how ESPN is working Stephen A to infinity and beyond

  • They will be unstoppable in the regular season but man come playoffs... Two of the biggest chokers in the modern era on one team during the playoffs....

  • rockets should just hire chris Paul as the coach because dantoni can't and don't coach. or get Jeff van gundy and Tracy McGrady to coach the rockets!

  • Stephen a stack up them Racks and quit espn and make your own shows 💯💯

  • Stephen A. needs equity in ESPN, they are nothing without him

  • Match made in hell, both play for themselves and personal stats

  • Y’all bitchin and moanin about sas working all the time, he gotta get that bag, a brotha gotta eat!!!!

  • Ppl still listen to this racist?

  • Steven A is the LeBron of 2017/18 cavs

  • Great trade for h town

  • Stephen A is going to make a power move at some point...Idk what it is...or what’s it’s going to be but he’s the highlight of the network...with 10 mil/yr in start up money...we witnessing the glow up 💯

  • After saying all of that, Stephen A had to cap it off saying there still not going to win a championship what a savage😂😂

  • Stephen A. has all these Jobs and Skip Bayless only has 1 and still makes more money then Stephen A. Lol

  • Chris Paul is a better shooter better ball handler Better passer don't sleep on him when he gets traded again

  • westbrook can ball? lmao

  • Stephen A the only one on ESPN to not hate on harden/Russ combo and focus on what the real problem is mike dantoni. None of us no how any of these new formed duos are going to play together. I think Russ/hardens game is a better match than Lebron/AD tbh.

  • Either shes got a resting bitch face or shes somewhere between the age of 28 and 40

  • At this point Stephen A needs a Max contract and a signing bonus

  • This trade has changed the whole discussion about who's dominant in the West. There's maybe 5 teams that can win the western conference title, injuries will be a major factor in determining the outcomes of those 5 teams. The conference crown won't be "won on paper" to quote boogie cousins.

  • so basically when the rockets fail again Stephen A will just automatically blame D'antoni instead of acknowledging the fact that Russ and Harden is a terrible combination..

  • SASPN. Stephen A stands still, everyone else comse

  • If Stephen A doesn't become the CEO of ESPN one day then he got scammed

  • Stephen A the OVP of ESPN! No, not OVer Paid😂 the Only Valuable Personality 😂😂😂

  • I guess smith is getting paid more than everyone like 10 millions reasons why no days off

  • I feel bad for D Anthony

  • I'm happy to hear that there is actually pressure in a coach. Donovan was horrible for OKC but Presti kept him and lost PG and Russ in the process

  • LeBron is to Skip Bayless as D'antoni is to Stephen A Smith

  • I love that the pace will pick up.

  • Russell gonna have to play like LeBron at pg....Cut.. kickout or slam.

  • They doing this man filthy 😩😩😩😩

  • D'Antoni is trash

  • buzz lightyear in the background...

  • Nyaint vinnina championship

  • James Harden: wide open in the corner Russell Westbrook: "Y'all hear sum'um

  • Espn sucks Will cain, Stephen A max kellerman suck

  • 🔥🔥 Just Imagine If Rockets Got Russell AND Steven Adams !! SHEESH 🔥🔥

  • Russell Westbrook is such a hypocrite. Blaming Durant for leaving OKC, then he does the same. Douchebag
