With or without KD, the Warriors wouldn't beat the Bucks in the Finals - Max Kellerman | First Take

  • Published on May 21, 2019
  • Max Kellerman says a Kevin Durant return for the 2019 NBA Finals won't matter for the Golden State Warriors, as he predicts Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks will claim the East and end the Dubs' chances at a three-peat.

    Max’s job is to do hot takes. All this is is entertainment. He’s very very smart and knows analytics. Numbers say warriors aren’t as great as they seem. But numbers and on court are a little different.

    And i’m back to say Max you again are just WRONGGGG. Not only did the bucks not beat the raptors but they’ll never get the chance to try competing with the warriors. Max and Skip are great examples or sports analysts just being normal guys who know nothing more than the average fan. Just on TV stating random opinions.

Sad Skip left to a better team and its just wrong he joined a superior all for money and ratings a snake move lol. Max is basically a devils advocate you can tell half the time he don’t even believe the crap he says. He’s not even a top ten sports personality he’s terrible.

    Max is like a NewYork fan. always looking at how “his” players are are going to do things and conveniently ignores the negative.. He literally said Mirotic and Hill and Lopez are going to affect the Warriors. Really. Those guys are not going to be off the bench in a finals against the Warriors unless it’s trash time. If the Rockets can’t handle the pressure to shoot threes, how the fuk does he think hill and Mirotic are going play when the heat is on? And how does Lopez keep pace with Draymond when they go small.
