      I am a Bulls fan, and I would never play for this organization. The front office is trash!

    8. FAKE NEWS

    12. Scott Sanders

      I'm from Chicago and I'm a Bulls fan and I wouldn't even play for them.

    13. Michel Greige

      Max said that the Lakers won 10, okay they won 10 from 1980,but the Boston Celtics are the kings of the 20th century,the Boston Celtics won 16 Championships In The 20th century compared to lakers 11,They Won 5 more,and the 21st century isn't finished yet,the lakers won more in this century,but this century has not finished, the Boston Celtics has more retired numbers,and championships,and when the Boston Celtics won 11,the lakers won only 5, we need to respect all eras,and he means from the old days,well,the Lakers won 5-6 or seven approx in the old days too,so what?,the Celtics are the Celtics,and the Celtics dominated the lakers more in the finals,this is my opinion, don't @ me please,the Celtics won 16 Championships In The 20th century,the lakers 11,come on,the Celtics has the most championships in nba history,the only team in nba history to won 11 championships in 13 years,8 straight yes, the Boston Celtics are the Boston Celtics ☘️,and we need to.respext all the eras,every era has a legends and has a mens,and has a teams and has a rules and yeah ,this is my opinion one more time,the Boston Celtics are the Boston Celtics ☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️,#17,he said modern okay,what is the problem with old days,a shame?,like they didn't count?,they count the same in my opinion, championship is a championship no matter the era that they played for, before 1980,the Boston Celtics:13 Championships,and the lakers only 6-7,come on,why max keeps talking modern,old count too, respect old days,the Boston Celtics rise before the lakers yes,the Celtics made a dynasty before the los angeles lakers,the Boston Celtics won a lot too,so yeah,the Boston Celtics won 17 Championships in the 20th century,the most closest is the lakers,and 6 championships difference,the lakers won 5 in this century,the Celtics won 1,and still the Celtics still have more championships than the lakers,the Boston Celtics,and let's say from 1957,the Boston Celtics won 16 Championships in 43 years in the 20th century,and one more time the 21st century hasn't finished yet,80 years left hhh,the Boston Celtics are the Boston Celtics yeah ☘️,and I can talk more,bleed green 💪☘️

    14. 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.

    15. 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.

    16. richard escobar

      Espn needs a storyline that bad.

    17. Joshua Black

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

    18. Joaquin

      Yet Celtics have more hall of famers than the lakers ok

    19. Joaquin

      Rusty buckets: “wE gEtTinG gIaNnAs aNd aD”

    20. Elijah Haven

      Really wish ESPN would just bite the bullet and fire molly

    21. Jay Grover

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

    22. Tom Ross TV

      Lebron James will never make the Lakers mt Rushmore either

    23. Doug Reed

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

    24. 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..

    25. Jaylon Roberts

      Molly is so annoying 😒

    26. 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.

    27. Dee Rob

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

    28. Fire and Ice

      Bulls fans are dreaming. Spare yourself the heartbreak.

    29. rojina javaherkalami

      anyone know the background music at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="240">4:00</a>?

    30. RufiDominic Espiritu

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

    31. Custom Shade

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

    32. doliio volay

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

    33. Chris Kelley

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

    34. 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😂

    35. John Fritzen jr.

      Lakers! Cowboys! It’s getting so old!

      1. doliio volay

        Isnt this like minor tampering?

    36. sedohema

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

      1. opzz xsin

        Lol this is awesome.

    37. Ricksonkimura

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

    38. Leon Smith

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

    39. Anthony Uccello

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

    40. j Smith

      They are becoming time wasters

    41. 9 17

      This why i stopped watching espn

    42. iCornerback

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

    43. Shafo

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

    44. 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

    45. 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

    46. Ej Envyme

      AD to bulls Is Blasphemous😂😂😂

    47. joey polanco

      Go where the Money At $$$

    48. 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...

    49. Ben Gilmore

      Who listens to SAS anymore 😒

    50. Royal K

      Isnt this like minor tampering?

    51. Claire Hanson

      Steven A needs to do the weather not sports.

    52. StingRayINC

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

    53. Greatest Brown

      I’m a heat fan

    54. Marco Rei

      Antetokounmpo join to panathinaikos Doncic join olimpia lubiana

    55. DiziCone

      Molly lookin like a SNACK

    56. Ismar Junuzovic

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

    57. Shauka Hodan

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

    58. Svyatoslav Fastovetsky

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

    59. 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.

    60. 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

    61. Cashis Ali

      AD would be a perfect fit on the Celtics

    62. Syrtech

      AD is a POS

    63. worken360

      Why dose AD look like a homosexual?

    64. Brian T

      Steven A. Is racist.

    65. 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

    66. 33moneyball

      Nice to hear a little speculation about leaving LA for once

    67. mccraejoey82

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

    68. 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

    69. Sweet Heart

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

    70. alida flus

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

    71. 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?

    72. G - Toney

      That's what the Bulls need a down low presents come Home AD

    73. TonyHamilton Ck

      *Brow-sing around* Are they talkin about Davis' unibrow

      1. alida flus

        Why is this even a segment smh

    74. Jordan Merced

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

    75. Chris Channel

      Of course AD was going to tell Chicago fans that, "we shall see". He wasn't going to disrespect his hometown by telling them, "y'all dreaming and keep dreaming", lol.

    76. Nick

      Jordan is 6-0 in the finals but Stephen A went 0-6 with his finals predictions. What are the chances of that

    77. Mike Foucault

      What a joke lol they really have nothing better to talk about

    78. Toby Schneider

      Max, "AD could be the greatest power forward." Tim Duncan laughs.

    79. Phateboi J

      the bulls are hella decent rn they lowkey woulda made it to the finals if they had AD this year

    80. strictly business

      *I was thinking the same thing. If AD wins a chip with the Lakers, he may not be willing to leave so soon.* .Dont hustle backwards.
