    The bucks have all the momentum going into Saturday Night, so Phoenix must establish their identity and pace of the game right from the start of this game. Khris Middleton plays well when he’s at home, but he’s faltered on road games. So, he needs to be aggressive and get to Booker in foul trouble early

    CP3 is defying the odds at age 36…he’s not supposed to be in the Finals right now. i don’t see how losing should hurt his legacy. what he did this year is remarkable…if he was in his prime, maybe not, but at age 36, you can’t crush him…basically what we’re telling players is to retire in your prime so they can’t pick you apart when you’re old

    Cp3 n Kobe was supposed to be a duo

    God can we start cutting MAGA Man Stephen A’s mic when Max is talking? Max provides quality, in depth analysis and explains it so all viewers can understand, and Stephen A always cuts him off just to act shocked and try to berate Max.

    Everyone at ESPN and Fox Sports needs to stop saying “in all of sports” or “in the history of sports.” These guys don’t watch soccer. They barely watch the NBA outside of nationally televised games

    • KingCantona14

      @Jason Daley probably because every time you tried to kick a ball you ended up like charlie brown

      @KingCantona14 that was super all time corny

      @Jason Daley Football (soccer) is more technical and difficult to master than basketball.

      @Mike all I heard was 1-0 boringness ….MASSIVE racism and PLENTY passing for a snooze fest…beat it

    • Mike

      July 16, 2021 at 8:04 pm

      @Jason Daley You cannot stop racism and ignorance in any sport. Football (soccer) is a low-scoring sport.
      Oh man, I don’t think that you watch football. You have no idea. People watch football for ball-handling/technique/control, dribbling and passes etc.
      Brazil vs German World Cup was a high-scoring game (7 goals, I think), people didn’t enjoy it much.

    I want CP3 to win his first ring so bad but guys like Skip, Brandon and Perk make it hard to root for CP3… the disrespect they have for Giannis is ridiculous
