    Look at how the women act on undisputed vs molly on first take. Skip Bayless doesn’t put up with that BS just shooting off at the mouth. They can contribute when it’s appropriate but it’s Skip and Shannon people are there to see. Stephen A is the top dog let it get completely out of control. This dude Max Kellerman get him outta there Stephen A🙄🙄

    Max isn't as much a Traitor but more of a Pale Faced Uncle Tom, Which I guess is probably a worse kind of Traitor.
    Stephen A is just a Traitor to Reason and Reality itself. But yeah I've long looked at Max as one of those pasty faced uncle toms who would be right at home on a cultural marxist show on CNN, Oh by the way I did just now look up and find out Kellerman is Jewish, which I'll say in a Stephen A Loud Mouth "THAT DAMN SURE ISN'T ANYTHING NEW OR SOMETHING ANYONE WITH A OUNCE OF A BRAIN SHOULD BE SURPRISED ABOUT"

  • Jimmy Han

    The word negro isn't really racist the color black in Spanish is negro just pronounced differently. Also I am Asian so don't give me bullshit I am white man or some shit too. And truthfully black people, Asian people, white people, and etc. Are all racist so yeah. Asians are racist to other Asians and etc. Black people are racist too. So basically this whole race card bullshit is silly and stupid. Plus max kellerman didn't really use it as a derogatory way he just used it to describe from his childhood. People are just too soft skin. Like I been called all types of derogatory terms just suck it up. This isn't 1980s where even looking at white woman if you were colored you would get lynched or hanged public. And yes USA has early bad blood with African Americans due to slavery and segregation. But it's been 20-30s from that you gotta move on. I am Korean but am I really gonna hold against Japanese raping and pillaging my ancestors during ww2 fuck no I got better shit to worry about

    Max played himself,I lost respect for someone I've greatly admired since his days on public access,the fact that he knew boxing so well at such an early age& he was your average typical NY kid made me fond of him& was proud for him to see him rise,felt wack when he lost his brother,but this shit here??? Mad Corny,Congratulations,You played yourself(on so many levels)not a big fan of SAS anymore,but Im glad to see he& Molly called him out on his bullshit.

    Porzingis shouldn’t go to the spurs though. Yeah pop could make him a star. But he should go to a contender. Or okc should make an offer. Imagine a starting lineup of Russ, Roberson, George, kristaps and Adams.

    I'm a Knicks FAN , and It never ever crossed my mind that Porzingis could be the BEST PLAYER IN THE NBA. Why? What has he DONE in his INJURY PRONED SHORT CAREER, to even SUGGEST that NONSENSE? I get it MAX.... Your, Great White Hope. Ha!

    • Moritz Sk
      Moritz Sk 3 months ago

      Because he's 7'3, so his shot is basically unblockable, he can score from anywhere he was becoming a 40%+ shooter which is ridiculous, he cant be beaten in the air, he can beat people off the dribble, offensively he was already one of the most unstoppable guys, and defensively he was leading the league in blocks. How is that not best player in the league potential?

    If the spurs get Porzingus he better be prepared to play no matter what. It would be hype with him and lamarcus but sorry Derozan I'd like him better with Kawhi. Also the knicks are bad just hang it up.

If he has a chance to be great somewhere else, let him go and be free. When it’s all said and done, Stephen will be the first one to criticize him for not winning a championship
