                              I honestly can’t wait until lebron finally retires then these analysts can finally shut up about lebron lebron lebron and actually talk about some different players I get it the guys great whatever just have 2 separate parts of YouTube 1. Everything about lebron absolutely nothing else 2. Actual nba coverage

                                Tom Brady is 42, has six, yes 6, super bowl rings and he is still one of the best starting QB’s in the league. I think Lebron is going to pass the torch to AD very much like Kareem did with Magic Johnson.

                                      As a BASKETBALL PLAYER,there is nothing kg or dirk can do that AD can’t,KG was AD before he went to the Celtics and won ONE ring,AD is exponentially better than Kevin Garnett and the only thing dirk can really do better than Anthony Davis is shoot..that’s it🤷🏽‍♂️can’t argue about Tim Duncan tho, Tim is the GOAT of PF

                                                LeBron and AD both have zero chance of winning MVP. They have to beat out Giannis and Steph, who are both guaranteed to have MONSTER seasons

                                                      If you would take AD over Duncan you're a moron. All Timmy did was win. When Robinson retired, Duncan kept winning. When Parker and Ginobli started getting old, Duncan kept winning. AD's career record in the NBA is 251-323.

                                                      "AD's also clutch!" ... he's 72 games under .500. Yeah, so clutch...

                                                          U could tell Stephen Smith that turds come from the asshole and he would still have a counter argument

                                                            AD is that gr8. Still never won a chip or mvp. Atleast u can win mvp like Westbrook. Lebron is far superior than AD. N as a warrior fan I know that.

Smith said about AD is a true story about it but it is dues of what AD game changes develops into his mindsets and that contaminate his a better ball player than LBJ and unfortunately the Lakers is becoming LBJ’s team to be the one containers of the NBA in this year of 2020 I hope that AD doesn’t hide himself of Lebron greatnesses legacy.
