    Love or Hate em, Mad Dog is right! We haven’t had a LEGIT superteam since GSW and we all know how that played out every year.

      @freshprinceshaun you’re very wrong Brooklyn Big 3 were gonna beat the bucks in 5 till giannis stepped on kyrie ankle Nets were blowing the bucks out by 40 they were legit

      @Darnell Williams They didn’t work though sports is results based not coulda woulda shoulda be real.

      Ughh the nuggets are a superteam, 2 superstar players and 2 legit all star players is a superteam to me

      ​@Humphkingisn’t a superteam 3 top 15-20 players on the same team?

    • FreshPrinceShaun

      June 22, 2023 at 11:21 am

      @Pro Pre i think its 1 top 5 player, 1 top 10 player and whatever yeah best 15-20 best players

    KD a 🧁

    🎵🎶Listen to the dribbles and the snake that ya used toooo, KD is indeed cursed lol

    KD needs a superteam to stay relevant

    The suns have Booker they don’t need Beal who is injured every season they should’ve traded for a solid bench now they are stuck with 3 stars on a max deal with no help 😂😂😂

    KD is great individually but doesn’t help his teams cuz he can’t lead. Everyone says GSW can’t win without KD but truth is, KD can’t win without a GSW type team

    • Alfred Santino

      He did a good job of leading the nets against the bucks 2021 by himself to a game 7 carrying the nets and all those years in okc he did good leading them but that simple fact was there were just better teams and only thing I’ll say was the 3-1 lead he blew against the warriors in 16 were he did a bad job leading

    Super teams only work when you have tile player depth. Which Phoenix doesn’t.

  9. Wait A Minute

    June 21, 2023 at 11:11 am

    Bro, KD has a 20/20 vision when it comes to forming a superteam🤣🤣🤣

    • SmoothSavage 28

      June 21, 2023 at 11:14 am

      Giannis has 20/20 vision when it comes to losing to an 8th seed in the 1st round.

    • Wait A Minute

      June 21, 2023 at 11:21 am

      @SmoothSavage 28 Giannis didn’t get swept. Giannis doesn’t run from team to team. Giannis doesn’t have the time to fight the fans. Giannis never sends his bodyguard to fight other players on the court🤣🤣. Giannis doesn’t cry for a kiss from mama because he got beat 🤣🤣

    • SmoothSavage 28

      June 21, 2023 at 11:27 am

      @Wait A Minute You right, Giannis just intentionally injures players to get out of a series. Cuz he’s not skilled enough to hit FTs to beat an 8th seed.

    • Wait A Minute

      June 21, 2023 at 11:29 am

      @SmoothSavage 28 KD got skills but still hot swept by the Celtics that Giannis took to 7 games without Middleton? Got anything to say? All I know is nobody liked KD in OKC. Nobody like KD in Golden State. In Brooklyn they were only using him just like they are in Phoenix.

    • Wait A Minute

      June 21, 2023 at 11:36 am

      @SmoothSavage 28 KD ran to his mom for as kiss after getting beat by Giannis🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤣🤣😯😯. What an embarrassment

    Everybody’s jumping the gun. PHX isn’t even done yet. When the preseason starts and we’re looking at the same roster, that’s when we can say this will or won’t work.

    No offense but how does Beal make this team better?

    • korrey miller

      June 21, 2023 at 3:21 pm

      Since your so smart tell me what packages they had better than beal for cp3 and shamet?

    • krunkformula

      June 21, 2023 at 3:24 pm

      @korreymiller3163  what are they realistically gonna get for Ayton? The hate is real because Beal is not a 46 million dollar player can you honestly say that he is? Especially with CBA change upcoming

    • krunkformula

      June 21, 2023 at 3:25 pm

      @korrey miller I’m not that smart it’s pretty obvious Beal is a bad contract

    • korrey miller

      June 21, 2023 at 3:31 pm

      @krunkformulai agree with the contract part, but at the end of the day phx window small. Get the best that you fan get.

    • krunkformula

      June 21, 2023 at 5:32 pm

      @korreymiller3163  that’s fair but Lillard would have been my target not that they could have got him

  12. Chris

    June 21, 2023 at 11:26 am

    ESPN better recognize and give credit to the legendary band – TLC because your “Don’t go Chasing Championships” is in direct correlation to “Don’t go chasing Waterfalls”

    June 21, 2023 at 11:29 am

    Super teams need LBJ to work.

    • kowaikokoro

      June 21, 2023 at 7:47 pm

      they need an ego feeder like lbj who can dissolve an entire defence by playing the right way finding the right player in the right spot with an matchup advantage, eerily similar situation with jokic even tho his team wasnt deemed an ”super team” but even steph and KD needed draymon to win 2

    the basketball gods hate teams taking the shortcut and punish them for not winning it all. haha.
    building superteams like the nets or suns or like the lakers (shaq, kobe, gp, karl roster in the past) do not win or become a disaster in the end.
    building superteams properly such as through the draft (gsw dynasty, nuggets, bucks) takes patience and most often rewarded heftily with a ring

    • Pro Pre

      June 21, 2023 at 6:02 pm

      Only legit superteam was the heat 2011-2013. Maybe 1983 sixers, perhaps mid 80’s celtics an lakers.

  18. Lyan Padrigon

    June 21, 2023 at 3:55 pm

    Mad Dog talks about the 86 Celtics and Lakers squad but he said he don’t like Super teams lol Hypocrite

    • Pro Pre

      June 21, 2023 at 6:06 pm

      Agreed, but I think he means if the players have a big influence vs management making the moves by themselves.

  19. Arthur Wright

    June 21, 2023 at 4:12 pm

    Steph won championships without KD but KD has won one without Steph. I know it’s been said a thousand times but its so true, KD is just not capable of winning on his own and that must drive him crazy.

  20. CREEPSQUAD

    June 21, 2023 at 4:33 pm

    Went from being a contender to desperate

  21. TheTlewis3074

    June 21, 2023 at 5:34 pm

    What is wrong with you people and Kevin Druant? never seen anything like the hate this man has received since going t GS and every time another star wants to play with him. Meanwhile the self proclaimed GOAT has played with more superstars than any player in history. Had Beale gone to LA you all would be popping champagne. Grow up.

  22. SamPrestiFanClub

    June 21, 2023 at 8:38 pm

    Such a typical ESPN video. The topic suggests I’ll hear why Mad Dog doesn’t like super teams..What I got was 3/4 of the video dissing or defending Thomas over Stockton for the 92 Olympic games
