    • Stephen A is just mad that Lebron is not guaranteed a chip. Its all good when he does it. All these players are tired of Lebron hoping on and off teams and grouping a bunch of great players to win. Now they're doing what he does and now everyone is mad.

  • 🤗 Great Review ESPN . I still see Cryptocurrency as one of the best digital investment and I totally love how interesting is getting having World Richest man like Ëlon Musk holding 1.5 Million investing into the market,when it comes to the largest crypto Assest ɓîtçöîñ, As a trader, I have been able to understand that there are two options when it comes to crypto and everyone has their different opinions when it comes to choosing sides.Though I am not kicking against Hodl , but I see it as an old and odd strategy to make profit of the market. As when the market goes bearish investors/traders lost their investment which is really painful, this is why Experts opinions has always been a guide for smart Investors/traders. iit's is best advice you find a working strategy/daily signals that works well in other to accumulate and grow a very strong portfolio ahead instead of sitting at home and waiting for the Government to come to your aid , I have been with Ēxpert Mrs Lindason Henderson daily signals and strategy. I have received 99% accurate guidance makes trading less stressful and more profitable using her aid. I was able to easily increase my portfolio just in 3weeks of trading with Linda Henderson daily signals are growing 2.6 BTC to 7.9 BTC. Her daily signals are very accurate and yields a great positive return on investment and she is available to give assistance to anyone who love Crypto trading, you can contact her on WhatsApp: +19 70-5500-415 Or Ēmail : {fxtraderl307 @

  • Max really hates GSW huh. The fact that he mentioned Curry and Thompson cannot beat Lebron when literally Lebron lost against warriors without Kyrie and Love says it all. I would accept it Max if you just said, Curry and Thompson cannot beat Lebron, Kyrie, and Love so they teamed up with KD (although I think Warriors couldve won that 2016 finals if not for the Game 6 mess)

  • Max is completely downplaying experience. If Aldridge is one of your reserves on a contending team, you're lucky. Making the right pass, limiting turnovers, calm in pressure situations, overall bball IQ are all very important attributes on a contender. He won't win you a game, but you don't have to worry about him losing it either.

  • Just my opinion, but I personally think this is going to end up JUST LIKE it did for the lakers back when they got Karl Malone and those dudes.. Collect ALL the offensive talent you want.. DEFENSE wins Championships.. Where are their defenders? KD and who else? D Jordan is a SHELL of his former defensive self... One game in a series may end in a shootout, ok Nets will win that one.. The other games they won't be able to guard Elite Bigs NOR elite outside shooters...Just my opinion..
