    Rudy Gobert is the best center in the league, not Joel Embiid but all that matters is putting up a lot of points even if you shoot a poor field goal percentage. Embiid is not MVP. Take Lebron off the Lakers and replace him with Joel Embiid. Take Kawhi off the Clippers & give them Embiid. Take Giannis off of the Bucks & replace him with Embiid. All those teams would be worse.

    Perk tries so much to be just as loud as Stephen A Smith and it gets me mad. He doesn’t really do this on no other show. He always wanna get loud and go against max and tries to overtalk him like he the man when max clearly sounds way more comprehensive and cohesive then him. Perk you are not Stephen A big fella. Stay in your lane. oh wait your wrong too. โœŒ๏ธ๐ŸฝโœŒ๏ธ๐Ÿฝ

    Somebody tell Kendrick that Lebron is scared to guard guys like KD while Joel isn’t afraid to guard anyone. I can say that in Joel’s defense. By the way Kendrick, I watch all the Sixers and Lakers games on You Tube. Max is right. You are wrong Mr. Social.
