      If Chicago was warm in the winter and had a couple of palm trees than this convo would be diff

    2. Flying V

      AD from Chicago so is it really a stretch? If Lakers win this year he might end up like Kawhi and sign with his hometown team. In both cases they were/are on expiring contracts.

    3. Brace Brooks

      I don't believe A.D will go to the Bulls next season, perhaps later in his nba career he might. I'm from Chicago too, but if I were an Nba star I wouldn't join a rebuilding Bulls team with a poor decision-making front office. I also prefer to live somewhere warm all year round. Chicago's corrupt politics and cold winters alone are hard to live with, not to mention its crime rate.

    4. richard escobar

      Espn needs a storyline that bad.

    5. Joshua Black

      We have NO hope in Chicago as long and Gar and Pax are here!

    6. Joaquin

      Yet Celtics have more hall of famers than the lakers ok

      Rusty buckets: “wE gEtTinG gIaNnAs aNd aD”

    8. Elijah Haven

      Really wish ESPN would just bite the bullet and fire molly

    9. Jay Grover

      Lakers got 5 chips before they were even in LA those should be a lot more questionable than bill Russels rings.

    10. Tom Ross TV

      Lebron James will never make the Lakers mt Rushmore either

    11. Doug Reed

      How he keep a job and chris get fired this crazy..

    12. EZYmoney Mike

      At this point you never know who goes where.....Lebron over Laurie,Levine,White,potter, and Windell..I think ill take the Bulls over the Lakers..the only reason the Lakers are relevant is because of AD.....Please SAS..

    13. Jaylon Roberts

      Molly is so annoying 😒

    14. Dee Rob

      The Bulls have a nice young core with LaVine, White, Lauri & Carter Jr.. Add AD and a veteran and all of a sudden the bulls are a Top 3 team in the east.

    15. Dee Rob

      dont laugh too hard.... let's revisit this video in 8 months..

    16. Takiboy233

      Bulls fans are dreaming. Spare yourself the heartbreak.

    17. rojina javaherkalami

      anyone know the background music at 4:00?

    18. RufiDominic Espiritu

      If AD leaves Lakers. AD should invite Lebron in bulls then they invite kawhi or kevin durant

    19. William Fout

      Larry Bird is the greatest shooter of All Time! Ask Dell Curry if you don't believe it--he'll tell you!

    20. doliio volay

      Well AD is going to the bulls for sure now. Steven A Wrong (all the time)

    21. Chris Kelley

      LAKERS #1 FRANCHISE period...... NOT EVEN CLOSE!!

    22. Justin Hussain

      It doesn’t make sense for him to even leave the lakers in general, he forced his way out new orleans, because that team wasn’t going anywhere, and said he only wanted to be in LA, even if the lakers lose, I think he’ll still resign and give them a chance, but hey who knows? We’re all laughing now, but he could end up with the bulls😂

    23. John Fritzen jr.

      Lakers! Cowboys! It’s getting so old!

      1. doliio volay

        Isnt this like minor tampering?

    24. sedohema

      Wow espn making up stories for ratings. Its all thats left to do

      1. opzz xsin

        Lol this is awesome.

    25. Ricksonkimura

      Palisades Parkway? New Jersey is not Southern California. I think Stephen A was thinking Palos Verdes

    26. Leon Smith

      More Lakers fans world wide then any other NBA team and that's a fact jack let's keep it real!

    27. Anthony Uccello

      wow this is amazing . im going to skip this season just for this.

    28. j Smith

      They are becoming time wasters

    29. 9 17

      This why i stopped watching espn

    30. iicySnowflake

      Like when we thought that KD's gonna come to us cause he was born in D.C smh 😂

    31. Shafo

      Their faces when they listen to each other is like they hate each other. Unlike Undisputed.

    32. Vishaal Venugopal

      Ad’s not gonna commit career suicide bruh........if the lakers don’t win a ship that man will either sign a 1 year 30 mill contract or dip to Milwaukee to rule with giannis

    33. C.A.Legacy

      Everything SAS say always go opposite...AD have a better chanceto be the best player if he goes to the bulls then to play with Lakers. AD is young like the bulls team you don't want to stick around a team that's about to go veteran mode soon like LA

    34. Ej Envyme

      AD to bulls Is Blasphemous😂😂😂

    35. joey polanco

      Go where the Money At $$$

    36. Bruhbruh

      Stephen A.: You're wrong and here's why... Stephen A. writing an essay: I will excuse you being wrong on this particular instance for this reason...

    37. finessed yew

      Who listens to SAS anymore 😒

    38. Royal K

      Isnt this like minor tampering?

    39. Claire Hanson

      Steven A needs to do the weather not sports.

    40. StingRayINC

      having Zach LaVine there, it might happen... it might happen.

    41. Greatest Brown

      I’m a heat fan

    42. Marco Rei

      Antetokounmpo join to panathinaikos Doncic join olimpia lubiana

    43. DiziCone

      Molly lookin like a SNACK

    44. Ismar Junuzovic

      keep that same energy when the bulls get him... bulls finna be back before yall know it

    45. Shauka Hodan

      Didn’t Stephen A. also say there was no way KD was going to the Nets over the Knicks?

    46. alucard lee

      let's be real: Anthony Davies is too ugly to even be on tv at all

    47. william mabon

      Both these children are idiots. AD like all super stars follow the money, fame and sentiment as to where they feel comfortable. If Chi is home to AD it will always be in serious consideration to his career so these kids broadcasting an indifference to Chi is just silly talk to fill up the moment. They are paid to sell stupidity and they do it very well.

    48. Mario Potts

      They have nothing else to talk about.. smh

      1. Mario Potts

        @Shauka Hodan 😂 ikr

      2. Shauka Hodan

        Max: Jordan has played with the bulls SAS: your wrong and here’s why

    49. Cashis 2K

      AD would be a perfect fit on the Celtics

    50. Syrtech

      AD is a POS

    51. worken360

      Why dose AD look like a homosexual?

    52. Brian T

      Steven A. Is racist.

    53. Derrick Kimsey

      Yeah I guess for the most part it looks pretty good but what I can tell it's a homeless fecal matter of a Rat Hole too

    54. 33moneyball

      Nice to hear a little speculation about leaving LA for once

    55. mccraejoey82

      he might if the Lakers win a championship this year he might leave to go home who knows with these players nowadays

    56. J P

      LeBron went back to the Cavs because he started his pro career there not necessarily he’s from there this guys just runs his mouth

    57. Eric Lee

      Can’t believe this is even being talked about with all the Lakers gave up, Ingram is about to be a Western Conference allstar this year at age 22... Lonzo is an Eastern Conference caliber allstar in the future. Hart is a great young role player. A top 4 pick in last years draft and Plus what would be THREE lottery picks 2022-2024 if he leaves. Lakers wouldn’t even be able to START rebuilding again until 2025... it would be the death of the Lakers by one man.

    58. Sweet Heart

      Why does the thumbnail look like he has on a lace frontal and they forgot to cut the extra lace?

    59. alida flus

      KD went from GS to Brooklyn 🤷🏽‍♂️, crazy things are beginning to happen in the league

    60. mar mea

      Stephen A Smith is so delusional when it comes to where players want to play. News flash not everybody wants to play in LA or New York. Do you know how much money you'll save playing anywhere but New York or California in taxes. What if going out every night and partying isn't high on my priority list?
