    • I've gotta lean towards Max on this with Harden being the Key and The Game Changer for the Nets and their foes! You can have the BEST WEAPONS but if the Wielder of those Weapons do not know how to best use them....well, you get a BK Nets WITHOUT Harden! Harden has been the Wielder of those Weapons (KD, Kyrie, Harris! etc...) Causing all types of havoc and disrupting the defense! You get what you get with KD and Kyrie.....but with Harden DISTRIBUTING THE ROCK.....The defense is DEFENSELESS!!! Harden alone is Krazy Offense!😳 👀

  • C'mon. Harden has established himself as the undisputed pivot of the nets. Leaving the other 2 in supporting roles. But, this as of now. Come next week KD can easily so become the focus point of the nets. And maybe even...uncle drew...can be so. This team is gonna keep switching the pivot rather than having 3 pivots on the court. Why? Because they can and it's the best approach.

  • not gonna lie, the play in isn't that bad. Think about it. In the NBA if the team with the best players are healthy, they win period. You predict and it is obvious(2017-2019 warriors) But this will give another form of entertainment, even if they don't win it all we can see some intense matchups.

  • Max is right about the Harden situation. No Harden, no Championship. KD and Kyrie, talented as they might be, are far to unstable.

  • So SAS said sometimes things just happen and you lose games, but he criticizes players for losing games then goes on to tell Max that’s why he knows nothing about basketball... why does he act like he’s some basketball savant and his opinion is the only right one ?

  • KD's been great, but hasn't looked as dominant as before which is to be expected his first season back. Him and Kyrie aren't the best fit though with both mainly looking to score. Harden is def their x factor at this point.

  • Well we all agree that KD is better player than Harden individually, but Harden moves the ball, creates moments for teammates, he is a playmaker who is much more valuable than KD. Thats why Lebron is the GOAT, not KD. KD is much better shooter but Lebron is far ahead than him, because Lebron has huge impact on every aspect of the game , not only shooting. Thats why MJ is no GOAT for a long time. I would take Lebron over MJ any day in my team.

  • stephen a sounds wrong 90% of the time. lol its like hes there to just go against anything logical lol tells max you lack basketball knowledge then throws up a hyperthetical to make his point. lol max talking about wins and losses depending on whos playing when they dont play together and stephen a seperating reg season from playoffs when its wins that get you to the play offs lol. hes so bad. lol

  • James Harden with the Houston Rockets had superstars with him; namely Chris Paul and Russel Westbrook in separate years and he did not win a conference Finals or an NBA final. How is Harden gonna carry Brooklyn Nets to a championship now, come on Max. Furthermore, at one time KD and Westbrook and Harden were teammates in Oklahoma and no ring there. That’s 3 powerhouse. Finally, Brooklyn Nets ain’t gonna get a championship ring ‘cause they’re not playing team. They’re a bunch of scorers who does not know how to control a game and win, period. No offense guys!

  • Anyone that says KD is better than Harden, especially with him off his type of injuries. Are out of their minds. You dunno if he can even stay healthy. Craziness.. best player's now. When healthy most valuable in the playoffs and proven goat my man LeBron James, secondary far as availability and offensive IQ either his proven defense, James Harden, Stephen Curry not only for his scoring but his ability to make others around him better and his true mentality of a true champion. They won the chip without KD. Then of healthy KD, for this year anyway definitely my man the Joker. Devin Booker, Donavon Mitchell aka Spyda, Joel Embiid edges out Giannis for me cause his big turnaround this year and Giannis hasn't proven he can get anything done in the playoffs.. just being honest lol... wish one day we could move Kyrie into MVP conversations. The skills are there he just hasn't wanted to show to us this year... my man the myth the Legend and king to be, Luka Doncic!!! Love to see my former Pacer PG blow up and win the chip this year for the Clippers. Get all the haters off his back. He's a better player for Clips than Kwaih lol.
