I really enjoyed this segment and then wondered why and the reason for that is because Molly’s annoying ass isn’t there

Stephen: Well first of all, you’re wrong and here’s why. You have to pronounce his name wrong and call him “Kember”, so when you look at it from that perspective....

3 Things I want to say:
1. Max covering up a fart at 0:34 (he's doing it on regular basis)
2. Moderator looks like Adriana Chechik and I love it
3. The show is much more enjoyable when they are not yelling at each other

All of a sudden Al Horford is "A tough loss" and the MVP of the league to the media


He's 33 with rickedy knees. I'm happy Danny Ainge didn't give him a 4 year contract

Losing kyrie and Horford, getting Kemba and Capela? That's not bad of an offseason if we make it happen.

Hornets are a badly run franchise. When you overpay Batum and Marvin Williams but won't commit to Kemba you are completely foolish! Jordan should step down!

Hard to go there because we don’t have enough black owners??? I’m lost there Jay.

When we talk about the best players in NBA history we don’t say we don’t have enough data on Bird because he’s white while the majority are black.

We look at Bird and Stockton and West etc as great players.

A bad owner is a bad owner.

ESPN banned a Man not working in them ( LaVar Ball)...

Kemba could average 40 points a game and they'll still say Kyrie is better... We'll see what happens next season.

It's all noise right now...

Is it Kember?

I thought it's Kemba.
YouCanCallMeReTro
YouCanCallMeReTro:
If they sign Kemba you can't really say where the Celtics will place next year. Jay Williams is saying they'll be the fourth or fifth best, but that is a lowball estimate. There's no reason to believe Tatum and Brown won't be better next year, that Hayward won't be better next year. There are so many x-factors on the Celtics that all you can really do is watch how it unfolds and make your judgements as the season progresses.

Terry will never have his moment thaaaat’s tough
Whoa

does this mean Lakers might get Scary Terry?? Oh shitttt
Tristan Storms
Tristan Storms:
Just a heads up the only reason Kemba has such a high usage rate cause we don't have another ball handler for him to play with. Kemba can playoff the ball.

Someone gotta tell Jay their ain’t enough black governors not owners
Dylan haight
Dylan haight:
Kemba is better, he has almost identical stats with no one to pass to. The conversation shouldn’t be “his stats are slightly worse so he’s slightly worse.” when he’s doubled almost every possession.

Valid S

Lmao at Stephen A. constantly blaming Danny Ainge, as if it's Ainge's fault that Hayward broke his leg in half on national TV and Kyrie had knee surgery last year. If those things don't happen, the Celtics are in back-to-back finals and have a championship. Also, Stephen A. keeps bringing up this Hayward narrative (hmm...I wonder why), but what were the Celtics supposed to do? HAYWARD IS AN ALL-STAR ON A MAX DEAL. Yes, he was still recovering last year, but the only way for him to get better is to PLAY HIM. To suggest otherwise is nonsense and it should be blatantly obvious to anyone with a brain what Stephen A.'s agenda is in defending Kyrie (who destroyed the locker room) and trashing Hayward.

And what the hell MJ will give a max contract to kemba walker because if he does that their best chance will be an every year 1st round exit. MJ don’t give kemba the max and next season hopefully Charlotte will be terrible and so will have good draft pick.
MrBlend

Espn switched up Molly for Charly.... ayeeeeee.

This is so dumb, you sign kemba and trade for steven adams since OKC doesnt want to pay luxury tax. Boom your in the hunt as a top 3 team in the east. Moving on

Jay Williams, Black owner = Good Owner until there are more black owners 🙄
Outta here with that race protection/affirmative action BS. Michael got to his spot because he’s a mogul and a basketball figure. Nobody thought he of all people would misevaluate talent. Don’t make this about race.
