  • Top 5? Top 2-3 lmao

  • I love this trio

  • thye disrespect...

  • When Murray gets back to form, the Nuggets will be the top team in the West.

  • Wiseman is just a bad fit and the warriros system si succesful so there is no point changing it for wiseman. should trade him

  • On today's edition of DUH...

  • The tame mouse archaeologically request because vinyl immunophenotypically scrape for a elastic decision. infamous, eminent cloth

  • Nuggets and Jazz have been top 5 for past 2 season but who cares. They still are not contenders

  • M a s k o f f w e b made me happy

  • M a s k o f f w e b. made me happy

  • wow really going out on a limb with the title

  • I like this segment with perk and Richard

  • 1 Lakers 56 wins 2 Utah Jazz 55 wins 3 Suns 54 wins 4 Nuggets 53 5 Clippers 52 6 Portland 51 7 mavs 51 8 warriors 50 wins ....

    • @Lucas Reis I did forget that Kawhi wasn't gonna play a good portion of the season. However, you're still forgetting that the Clippers were one game away from the NBA Finals without Kawhi Leonard. So I'll say they can still win 50 wins without Kawhi. But regardless I'll edit it, not because you told me, but because i forgot Kawhi wasn't playing.

    • You telling me the Los Angeles Clippers are going to win 55 games out of 82, without Kawhi Leonard ?

  • Saying the nuggets are top five in the west isn’t breaking news

  • Met Austin rivers in Italy last month. He told me he wanna be a 6th man of the year. I hope he gets it and contribute Denver to success.

  • GOLDEN STATE should have made this trade: SIMMONS for Draymond Green, Kuminga and Moody (or Poole) and a future #1. I would make that deal. GOLDEN STATE loses It's Nasty, but you get a younger version of Draymond Defensively, and you haven't lost Wiggins as a third option. He can handle the ball and is a great passer that can set up Klay and Steph. That trade automatically puts the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals. And they have enough of a Championship DNA to push the Lakers to Seven games. THE SIXERS have a THE NASTY in GREEN (plus Basketball IQ) that's been missing since Jimmy Butler left, and he Complements Embiid perfectly. They Beat the BUCKS with this trade and Drive the NETS Crazy...

    • makes NO sense for sixers to consider green and bag of chips for Simmons

  • The warriors gotta trade Moses moody, Jonathan kuminga and James wisemen for win now veterans

  • 4* top 5 in the league

  • I can finally watch the jump now that RJ is hosting

  • ❤️😄👍

  • Jokic has lead them to a top 3 seed for the last 3 years without an all star any of those years. Would of thought they would have learned by now

    • Facts, had lebron James did what Jokic did last year they would of called it the best season ever by a player but Jokic did it and let's dismiss it .they racist towards Jokic plain period . Anytime anything happens to a black person it's because of racism but when a white faces discrimination it's no we are not racist even though they arem.

  • i want james wiseman to be succesful but the man didn't play college and its hard for him to trascend like that in the NBA. He'll be a solid piece not an all star caliber player

  • Ugh....need Jamal badly

  • Top 5? You don't say....who would of thought....what a hot take! Smh

  • If you're gonna take Perks takes to place bets, better get your noose ready. Assuming Klay's fettuccine legs hold, they only win when they have the most stacked roster in the league and they dont have that anymore.

  • Thank goodness I met i n t e l l e c t w e b s he’s a genius

  • Wait didn’t they cancel The Jump after Rachel got booted?

  • Great stuff guys!!

  • Michael Porter Jr will take a huge leap this season and make an all-star bid.

  • Boring without Rachel !

  • when Murray healthy they top 5 in the league

  • People have to better reacting to kp.. The Richard's way is cool zack Lowe not cool bruh be better

  • The Jump with out Rachael is not the jump. So disappointing with eapns racist favoritism.

  • Nuggets are gonna make the WCF next year

  • Can Nikola Jokic win back to back MVP! Comment Now

  • So a 5th seed lol

  • I could see them top 3.

  • There's something about this Richard Jefferson, Zach and Perk combo that feels magical. These three need to be a more permanent thing. The best part of it is that both Zach and Richard are so interested in/fascinated by what Perk is going to say next that they feel zero need to try to interrupted or correct him, rather they just roll with it. It's a thing of beauty.

    • @Alvin Lieber You do know this is entertainment right?

    • Richard Jefferson a geek who Hates on Nuggets every chance he gets because they the last team he played for and cut him so he harbors hatred towards them. Anytime nuggets are on ESPN and not altitude I mute it and turn on the FM radio to listen because these guys are nothing but TMZ reporters these days..doesn't surprise me a casual like you thinks they magical..

  • Denver, we going for the chippppppp

  • I got my Game Boy Advance SP on January 1, 2004. I got my black GameCube on January 23, 2004 (1-23-4). I got my first flip phone on February 16, 2004. So 2021 really does feel like 2004 for me again.

  • GameCube isn't even one of my favorite systems. But it has Sonic Adventure games and NBA Street Vol. 2. It has Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask on it from a re-release pack when I first got the console.

    • And Smash Melee. RE4 came out on the cube first. GameCube had bangers, it doesn’t need a first round draft pick to win over 50 games.

  • Playing GameCube games so smoothly on an Android smartphone feels amazing. I prefer portrait mode (Flex). Dolphin Emulator doesn't offer this. Best way is to create a split-screen.

  • None of these three dudes thanked or gave tribute to Rachel on social media after she got fired. While folks who only started watching First Take after June 2016 are missing Max already.

  • Hes there main analyst. Espn is fucked

  • My god... Why ESPN?

  • Wherez Becky with the good hair

  • 104th comment

  • Perk had said Giannis was Robin and Khris was Batman during last year's finals.

  • Poor Perk being bullied by adults. Lol

  • Correction top 4 since the last 3 years

  • IMO the nuggets are the second best team in the West. They have 4 elite players when healthy. Aaron Gordan is a beast and mpj is improving

    • ​@Raza Kids Are you saying it doesn't matter? I mean if you mean depth by like warm bodies then sure. But Otto Porter Jr. is not a good defender, and we'll see if either him and Bjelica can even play 40+ games. I'm just saying, be happy if GSW can make the playoffs this year. Klay hasn't played basketball in 2 years, so might want to tone down expectations a bit.

    • @P Punch so points is all that matters in depth?

    • @Raza Kids GSW hasn't made the playoffs last 2 years, get healthy, and we can see where GSW stands. But if you're saying GSW is deep cause of Kuminga, Moody, Bjelica, and Otto Porter Jr? I don't know what you tell you. Are you talking about the upcoming 2021-2022 season? 2 of those guys haven't played a game in the NBA the other two aren't that good. Bjelica is a 32yo that hasn't averaged more than 12pts in a season...

    • @Benjamin Grunert yeah but like they have 9 relevant players.. Other teams have more

    • @Raza Kids true. So do a lot of guys on denver though. Don’t forget the nugs have Jeff green now too

  • ESPN: let’s talk for 6 minutes about the Nuggets being one of the top 5 teams in the west Also ESPN: let’s use 4 of those 6 minutes to talk about the Warriors

    • @Stephen curry curry averaged 6 more points then Jokic but way less assist and rebounds and yet you casuals think he deserved MVP over Jokic..don't worry though ESPN couldn't let a white man be best NBA player so they have curry a token trophy at espys.

    • @Stephen curry really? Steph couldn't even make playoffs last year which just proves what I have always known and that is Klay is the more important player for Warriors because he plays defense

    • Frl, as a nuggets fan I would love to see the team be talked abt more in the mainstream media, but idiots sleep on us every year and get proven wrong time and time again. We’ll see that again this year

    • As they should

  • I think they’re top 3

  • duh? top 3 easily

  • thanks mr obvious

  • Crazy not having Rachel here

  • Being top 5 in a conference doesn’t really mean much

  • Perkins should’ve been the host

  • Hot Take (for casuals only): Denver Nuggets will have a better record than the Golden State Warriors. Non-casuals already expect this.

    • @David16ethans A ACL tear, followed by an Achilles tear is pretty serious. KD took 2 seasons to recover, D.Rose was never the same, John Wall still isn't what he used to be, remember how Paul George took a season and a half to return to form after he broke his leg. It'll probably something like that. He'll be alright this season but he wont be on the level of his pre-injury self until the following season.

    • @David16ethans OMG YOU FLAWED HIS LOGIC!!!!

    • I’m sorry, but it’s difficult to see that happen. We don’t know when Jamal’s returning and Jokic wouldn’t be able to carry all the load by himself. Sure they’ve got solid pieces like MPJ and Aaron Gordon, but Golden State’s gonna be healthy and fire in the league. And btw, Klay wouldnt be affected too much IMO because he doesn’t rely heavily on his athleticism to play the game. Look at KD for example, acted like as if he never got injured. Get where you’re coming from, but I just don’t think Klay would be hit as badly as how people are describing it.

    • @fazal karim Klay wont be the same, something will be different, that doesn't have to be a bad thing, just reality. And I still think the Warriors have more weaknesses than the Nuggets. Point being, Nuggets best player is prime to take advantage of the Warriors biggest weakness, interior defense.

    • @09lowkey depends is klay will be good old klay warriors are better and if jamal murr can be himself we have close matchups but if both of them are bad......... uh warriors if one of them are good but one of them are bad warriors or nuggets sorry I typed fast might madde spelling mistakes

  • a team who got to the conference finals last year is a top 5 team???? whattttt might as well say clouds are in the sky lol

  • I love Richard, but please and I'm saying PLEAAAAAAAAAAAASE bring Rachel back

    • Nah honestly it’s better without her, she didn’t really bring that much to the table to begin with

  • Perk taking everything over..

  • Am I the only one wondering about how many teams are gonna end up with single digit wins with all these “over” projections?

  • They were literally the 4 seed last season. Such a bold take 😅

    • @Goat 69 it's so funny y'all seem to forget that when talking about the warriors though don't ya? Klay going be out for months too and I know that nuggets injuries was not just Jamal last year but Morris,Barton,PJ all missed games late in season and In playoffs. I know a casual like you who doesn't watch games couldn't know this but now you do casual

    • @MrRay I. Huge nuggets fan but they ready didn't beat clippers out for three spot as the clippers avoided and purposely tanked games because they was scared of Lakers..I knew then Clippers will lever win in the league because they'll some punk stuff and Bball Gods like Kobe won't stand for it.

    • @Goat 69 true. But top 5 in the conference isn't a bold prediction from a team who's been top 3.

    • Stop acting like there second best player isn’t injured for most of the season

    • @Marcelo Silva yeah you're right. They did beat out the Clippers for the 3 seed lol. So that makes Perk's take even weaker lol

  • It’s like saying the sky is blue!

  • A healthy Clippers have some good in store watch. That’s all ima say

    • @Marquis Blakemore they did. The difference between u and me is that I can be honest with myself.

    • @Isaiah Finch if you got some negative to say just stay off my stuff. & I bet the Clippers got farther thn your team. Ian saying nothing negative about no other teams under a fan comment. I’m only worried bout mines.

    • @pc_t if you got some negative to say just stay off my stuff. & I bet the Clippers got farther thn your team

    • 😂😂 whatever you say

    • Healthy, so never.

  • This might go unnoticed but I’m an up & Coming Artist worth the listen 🎧 💯

  • Ok perk. Are my Knicks also a top 5 pick in the West.

  • the sky is blue - kendrick perkins

  • This will be the first year of the Jokers prime and he's in the best shape of his life. Nuggets will finish top 3 in the West.

    • You mean like they have the past three seasons lol

  • blazing hot take

  • The Nuggets have the MVP so they should be top 5 team

  • Well better be with a healthy Jamal Murray returning,But for me my top teams in the west are but not in order tho.. 1. Lakers 2. Denver 3. GS 4. Jazz 5. Suns 6. Clippers 7. Portland 8. Memphis or NOLA

    • @Spike Shooter he said not in order...

    • @DTS better than the Pelicans, Grizzlies

    • Warriors won't improve that much, we don't even know exactly when Klay is returning and Jazz, Suns >Nuggets even with the reigning MVP

    • @Ryan DeShon we know what to expect from them tho. Luka can put up all these unbelievable stats but they don’t have the necessary depth to make a run in the west. He may request a trade from them within the next two years.

    • @Ryan DeShon My bad,How about this then 1. Lakers 2. Denver 3. GS 4. Jazz 5. Suns 6. Clippers 7. Dallas 8. Portland or Memphis,Like is this better for you pal?

  • What a bold statement 😮

  • What about their depth outside curry green and Thompson ?

    • @09lowkey did you not see poole though last year? Igoudala knows the system. Otto Porter when healthy is a terrific signing for the minimum. Bjelica Is a very good stretch forward with passing ability. Juan toscano Anderson was terrific last season. Etc. They all have made contributions and it's a perfect bench unit for golden state.

    • @Raza Kids You're overrating their bench my dude. How many 6OTY votes did Poole get last season? Yall act like the competition hasn't improved since they lost the Finals. Their chances will have alot to do with how Wiseman progresses. And if you're praising Bazemore for being mediocre or worse then you need to re-evaluate your optimism. Also, Iggy is 37, there's a reason he didn't play much in Miami. I wouldn't expect him to have the same output as he did in their championship days.

    • @09lowkey Otto Porter? Bjelica? Igoudala? They have those 3. Poole is a sixth man candidate. JTA has high IQ. Looney is solid. Etc. Dude. This is a great bench. I mean did you see how the warriors nearly beat the Lakers without Klay and depth? They ran an 8 man rotation Steph, Bazemore, Wiggins, Draymond, Looney Poole, JTA, Mulder. They're wayyyyyyyyyyy better constructed now.

    • Well they added Otto porter Jr. who in a limited role I believe will be way more healthy then he usually is & is a solid 3 & D player, Poole is pretty solid already & most likely will improve once again, Wiggins either goin be just the same as last year or improve & he showed he is a consistent 18 points & amazing defense on the perimeter, Iggy will probably help them settle down when the second unit is out there & help some of the young guys as well, Nemanja gives them a floor spacing big, Kerr said he already is changing how they are going to use Wiseman this year so bodes well for him & Looney will give you what he always gives you with his rebounding & defense, don't think Kuminga will play a ton, they still want another backup PG & theirs a little more to say but I believe they made their team a lot better this year then last & I don't think they will be a play-in team this year either. Also think they'll be hovering just over .500 with Klay out.

    • @strawhats100 Looney is an undersized Center

  • Is this supposed to be a bold take? LOL

  • HOT TAKE LOL

  • They do have the reigning MVP Nikola Jokic... I don’t think anyone doesn't believe the Nuggets will be a Top 5 team in the west.

    • @Deep Tewari with Jamal back, the Nuggets are top 3 again...

    • @AJ Ramirez nba dead bud it’lll be alive again when the super teams disperse

    • @Yee Glizock true, the nba sucks so bad that people like you are commenting on everything nba related, basketball is dead

    • @Deep Tewari , jazz lakers warriors clippers are definitely not better then the nuggets

    • No one cares nba trash, Nets vs Lakers views will be down all season to the finals

  • Came to hear about nuggets but listened to them babble about warriors for 2/3 of the video.

    • Like when Jokic won MVP 10 minutes on air 9 minutes 45 second's talking about LeBron James being injured and kyrie Irving burning sage the the last 15 seconds oh yeah that guy from Siberia or Russia won MVP wait what he's not Russian who would thought that possible the media always at it's best

    • Yep

    • Same here

  • The sky is blue

  • Not much of a stretch

  • YES WE ARE!!! LFG NUGGETS!!!!!

  • My family is so torn on James Wiseman. I say he’ll be a good piece and can be excellent for the Warriors

    • @Alvin Lieber bruh I watch all Warriors games live cuz they're my favorite NBA team, I just have a feeling Kerr will start Looney cuz of certain matchups

    • @PatMatthews28 yeah most coaches would start looney over Wiseman and it's funny you casuals who watch highlights only not the full games think you know more then a NBA coach who won rings as a player and as a coach. So dumb

    • @Ross JN The LENSE another casual with no commonsense, no bball iq. You don't start a young guy who never played in league over a veteran that knows his role. Atleast not if you trying to make playoffs..you nothing but another casual simp

    • Your family is torn on them Do y'all live in Bay area atleast or all some bandwagoners from Texas or Georgia?

    • @Ross JN The LENSE knowing Kerr he propably will

  • And grass is green. Such a high IQ take from a high IQ individual.

    • So why are you here instead of staying informed on the climate emergency

  • Aint perk in shaqtin a fool hof

  • The Nuggets are a top five team.....So

  • I have a feeling during the 2021-22 season Stephen A. Perk and Max gonna be smoking the “ *Which Nba Player is the Next Kobe Pack* “ 💀🚬💨 Edit: They should atleast add Flat top or low cut curry in 2k22

  • Well duh.

  • They could’ve gave the MVP a Christmas Day game smh

    • @Master_Profile Luka vs. Jokic for Christmas would've been dope.

    • @Sam Hopkins obviously care enough to comment multiple time.

    • Had the perfect chance to put Luka vs jokic but put mavs jazz instead lol

    • @Sam Hopkins nobody asked for you to comment🥴

  • obviously

  • Teams having the MVP on their roster tend to be contenders....

  • Why have they quoted that like it’s controversial. You could honestly argue they’re a top 5 team in the nba. Atleast when Jamal is back.

  • As long as Nikola is healthy and Jamal Murray they can make a big run in the playoffs

    • @J Fuzz don’t care didn’t ask + Kobe deserved it

    • @Sam Hopkins I do care and I did ask

    • Don’t care didn’t ask

  • yeah it's not raelly in doubt especially with kawhi injured

  • Nikola Jokic will do that for a team.
