  • What if Lakers trade him mid season?

  • Why this Lakers squad reminds me of the 03-04 Lakers?

  • 1 Timothy 6:10 King James Version 10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

  • Can ESPN enable a function where I can block SAS but keep get ESPN vid recommendations? Thanks, Humanity

  • Every time I see SAS now I get annoyed

  • In the playoffs Melo is going to have a game per series where he is the primary reason the Lakers win.

  • All these superteams for what?....Just move the All Star game at the end of the season.

  • Interview def better is Max was present

  • The Lakers’ lineup: Pg: RW Sg: WE C: DH Sf: LBJ Pf: AD

  • ESPN should trade for Skip ,to be the counter point of SAS

  • Carmelo should be thanking God he gets to be a Lakers Lakers have 17 chips, what does Carmelo have?

  • Stephen A is correct, this is Carmelo’s best chance to win the “chip.” Aedin

  • Maskoffweb, are so the best

  • Maskoffweb are so the best

  • LA is 08 Boston. Everyone's literally there for 1 good run. Afterwards it'll dismantle and AD....will return home.

    • Difference is, Celtics were STILL elite for 5 years until 2012 when Ray Allen left Boston for Miami. Celtics could’ve won 2010 finals and could’ve been to finals in 2012 if they didn’t blow 3-2 lead to Lakers in 2010 finals and Heat in 2012 East finals. What would’ve been if Celtics finished them off? They would’ve been 2 or 3 time champions and Ray Allen would’ve never left Boston. LeBron isn’t retiring anytime soon, he’ll still be as elite for 3 more years, he takes care of his body, same with Melo, he could still return for 1 or 2 more years run if LA wins chip this upcoming season. Same goes for Dwight Howard he still can return. Russ is still in his prime and AD would love to get lobs from Russ for more years long. Lakers is still in good shape for years to come.

  • If Brooklyn LA don’t happen it’ll be the biggest disappointment in nba history

  • SAS sucks...

  • I'm one NBA fan that is not interested in seeing a LA vs. BK finals.

  • Disrespect to the bucks is at an unprecedented level lakers will not win the championship I ll bet my 2 houses on that

  • A legend of his caliber... age dont mean nothing..he is going to deliver and not only him but Lebron and all others in this team... I'm not saying is going to be easy.. I'm saying 35 36 yo players are very competitive still... would you discard a 36 yo healthy Larry Bird ? or Reggie Miller? remember Kareem at the finals against Celtics ? he was 38 !!! anybody watching Tom Brady ? and football is 10x more difficult than any other sport except boxing or MMA...and even in boxing we saw Mohammed Ali and others fighting in their 30s....

  • Brooklyn vs LA isn’t happening Bet against it

  • Carmelo Anthony. Lakers will never win a championship with the Isolation King, even with Lebron.

  • Lebron should be on his knees thanking God Melo joined the Lakers!? Is Skip Bayless still on ESPN or what now

  • they canceled First Take for this?

  • Melo look like a no limit rapper

  • Lakers v Nets 💯 🙏

  • Fuq SAS

  • SAS is an egotistical blowhard!!! 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

  • Stephen A's World (Where no white boy is blacker than me)

  • i n t e l l e c t w e b s you are the best i n t e l l e c t w e b s you are awesome

  • Doesn’t matter Lakers in 4

  • Lakers wont gonna make it to second round.

  • Show me the team lead by all young dudes that won it all

  • Buuuussssttttt

  • I wish Mello would stfu and just play all that talking ain't called 4🤬

  • WARRIORS WARRIORS WARRIORS

  • Bron winning another ring and finals MVP.

  • Everyone & the media already crowned the Lakers 2022 Champions and not one game has been played yet? The chemistry and hunger coming from the Lakers are apparently to win the hearts & minds of social media consumers, not a basketball Championship. This will be an interesting experiment 🧪 🔬🔥💥

    • @Bigg Dave Dude,. Dude... We all know when 🏀 players over hype themselves. It never works out, either on the streets or the NBA. Give up the bad attitude and foul language. It doesn't fit you 👗👛👙

    • This comment is why u should STFU about basketball homie.

  • Brooklyn will FAiL AGAiN

  • This ol one dimensional journalist can’t talk about nothin else

  • Melo hasn't won a chip for a reason bro, stop over hyping him.

    • Nether has Chris Paul , Devon Booker ,James Harden , doesn’t take away from how great they are , Takes more than just one Great player to win a Championship , you need a good Front office , Coaching staff and role players as well

    • You sound dumb lol 😂

  • Melo in the win win situation; able to play with the best team in the league, playing alongside with his best buddy lebron james and could finish his career with winning his first championship title

    • He's a championship away from hitting the trifecta..NCAA chip, Multiple Olympic chips and a NBA chip would be great for my guy..

  • Can't wait to see Melo in a Lakers uniform

  • Why was you at them colleges boy

  • Melo should be glad LeBron gave the okay for him to be on the roster…

    • Agree. Stephen A clowning with his LeBron got to be on his knees to sign Melo🤣🤣

  • LeBron is a Top 3 player in the world, AD can be a Top 5 MVP & Top 3 DPOY candidate, and Westbrook is a former MVP and automatic triple double machine. 9x All-NBA player. Just averaged 22 pts, 12 rebs, and 12 asts. The Lakers are super deep on veteran talent. 3 HOFs off the bench in Melo, Howard, and Rondo. LA has a good chance as any team in the NBA to win it all. Even the vaunted Brooklyn Nets.

  • 🤡🤡

  • I love this ❤ Let's go

  • LAKESHOWWW

  • I think melo two years ago Lakers are more likely to win I think the west is weaker so the laker show get to the finals but that east is a beast this year

  • We are going to have a lot of maturity and wisdom on our squad.

    • yeah, and no twitter bitchin' or floor time demanding...just the way the 2020 playoff squad came out, some series with a few players (howard, mggee, etc.) not getting a single minute on an entire series, because they know their job and they know they fit in different situations

  • saw sas disliked bring max back

  • now you have 2 win marshmelo. what were you doin in pdx the las 2 seasons?🤡🤡🤡

  • Lebron should be thanking God they have Melo???? More like Melo should be thanking God.

  • Come on man. We all know why he never played in the Finals. He was chasing the bag and was super selfish with the Knicks. Even Billiups says he only cared about his numbers and statistics. At one time no one wanted to sign him until he finally swallowed his pride and ego and accepted coming off the bench. Then the Blazers too him in.

  • Lakers in five

  • Just retire Stephen A Smith, you have jumped the shark SO HARD about 4 years ago already...

  • A 💍 closes The HOF discussion for both Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony

    • They’re both HOFers without a ring. A ring just boosts their legacy

  • A Lakers vs Nets Finals would basically be a Playoff All-Star series.

    • @Palm Trees - ALL major sports are rigged. Including tennis, FIFA and even the Olympics. ANYTHING that can be wagered on...is rigged to varying degrees. Wake up. Grow up. No one has EVER built a billion-dollar company or enterprise without cutting corners and rigging the game. Sports are no different.

    • @Just Hear Me Out sports aren’t rigged at all. If they were, Brooklyn/NYK/LAL would’ve made the finals last year

    • It would be Melo vs Griffin (former all stars thought to be washed up) and AD vs Harden (superstars we're skeptical of)

    • NBA trash lol

    • @Basketball Nation Griffin haven't been good since the clippers xd

  • Stop yelling bro

  • kwamé brown

  • lakers will fail lol

  • None

  • Mommas cooking

  • I respect Melo being up front like that

  • 129th comment

  • I'm making an app that reads the Olive Garden menu in Stephen A Smith's voice.

  • Breaking News!! Steven A wants Melo off the show!!!

  • i think melo has a place for the closing mins great option for clutch shots

  • Melo isn’t as far as he wants in his career because he doesn’t understand the concept of the collective Ask Chauncey Billups about what he thinks when he played with him. Ask all the Knick players when Linsanity was happening He’s a selfish me first player. Period. Full stop. I’m glad now he’s learning to put team first before him cuz he’s older

    • @Steve Huang All of everything you just stated was Speculation from Media and the public Lol please refer me to the time Carmelo even stated he had problems with Lin ? I’ll go a step Further, please refer me to the Time Lin himself said he had smoke with Carmelo? And the fact that he was happy about having a good game but losing doesn’t 100% fall on him ether he played his heart out and his teammates couldn’t match his energy which is welll documented and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being disappointed in yourself for not playing up to the level you can even in a winning effort, Carmelo single handed took that Denver franchise from being a lottery team to a western conference contender with Teams like LA , San Antonio, Dallas , Utah , PHX all being in their prime Which is a well documented Fact ,so whatever energy he had was completely warranted it comes with the territory why do you think Melo got so much love from Kobe ,and guys like Camby , Kenyon Martin , NENE, Shaq , Dirk , etc etc Even with how bad that NYK trade was and favored Denver they still dropped and became a lottery team yet again that speaks Volumes to Carmelo value and what he did for that franchise lol

    • @SaYLoS LaFo this entire rambling clearly demonstrated u have no idea what I’m referring to. You keep wanting to debate Lin’s career. Jeremy Lin’s overrated 15mins of fame is well documented and no one would ever argue that. But during this time Melo was less than pleased with media’s fascination with an Asian boy now being catalyst of the knicks winning, rather than Melo himself. And that did not sit well with him. He was resentful n jealous This coupled with Billups’ statement about Melo couldnt less about losing as long as he got his 25-30points a game is damning about him as a team player. You either are ignorant of these observations or you don’t care Again I ask, based on these very publicly known observations about Melo - should we really wonder why he couldn’t find a team to sign him just a few years ago ?

    • @Steve Huang “Linsanity” lasted the few weeks it did off the fact that no one knew his playing set in the league because of him sitting on the bench , Once opposing coaching staff hit him up with a few defensive schemes those turnover numbers went wwwaaayy up on top of the fact he couldn’t keep up with guards like CP3,Derron Williams , Derrick Rose (Which is understandable) and made guards like Jose Calderon , Drajic , Brandon Jennings look like superstars having career nights every game they played the Knicks( Which Is unacceptable) Carmelo put the Knicks back into the playoff discussion as soon as he got there and was putting up crazy numbers he had every right to look at Lin sideways when Lin was trying to be a first option scorer on possessions when he ain’t even the second (Amare) hence again why his turnovers were climbing so much , So again I’ll ask what happened to Lin once he took that Poison Pill contract from Houston?

    • @SaYLoS LaFo when did I ever claim Melo ruined Lin’s career? Do u even know what Melo was like during Linsanity?

    • @Steve Huang and you still ain’t tell me What happened to Jeremy Lin ? I’m guessing Carmelo ruined his career right ?

  • Is this the same Carmelo SAS thought should be out of the league and couldn’t play anymore a few years ago!?

  • Where's Max?

  • Nobody cares about Stephen A anymore..we want MAX

  • I know it's a business, but at the end of the day I hope they all still love one another and grow closer. If the lakers want to truly win a chip this year. They have to play smart, substitute for what age has taken away. stay healthy, build chemistry gel and get along. Then there's the holy grail of them all play good consistent defense. Scoring won't be a issue. Age is wisdom. The big threat is Milwaukee and the unknown, not the Nets. Don't downplay Giannis he is a champion and a good one, and the team follows.

  • I appreciate the beats but turn it down 😂

  • This rings don’t affect Melos legacy tbh

    • Rings always matter son.

    • Yea he solid for sure 👌🏾

  • What ? Carmelo should be on hands n knees thanking the Lakers n Lebron for giving him an opportunity to win a Ring

  • Lol this is his late night show

  • We want max comeback...

  • Thanking GAWD!!!!!!

  • That beat 🔥

  • bring back Max

  • I'm 34 laying on the sofa. My knees hurt. Hawks in 6

    • @john jame I hope these Lakers can perform at a high level at 35 will see

    • @mimicmage dang yallact like 35 old holy cow..

    • I'm 36 my knees don't hurt. Everyone is different. I got slow at age of 35 for sure. But I still don't have a belly. Have a athletic build ✊👊💪 lakers in 4

  • Man iont even like watching without my man max.

  • This show and undisputed makes me respect inside the NBA they respect every player and they are the only objective NBA pundits...the rest of this other guys are disgruntled fans the disrespect for Gianni's Westbrook and other great players says it all

  • aint no need to lie \_0_0_/

  • This is just another version of the Karl Malone Lakers and the Steve Nash Lakers.

  • It’s not going to happen

  • Idc what anyone says melo win A ring NY WILL STAND UP

  • look my name

  • NBA Street Vol. 2 is my favorite basketball video game ever. We got three versions of MJ. By Vol. 3, we got LeBron but MJ was no longer there. I love picking MJ to go against Kobe. Dream one-on-one match.

  • Investing in crypto is the best way to earn financial freedom

    • I'm from the UK 🇬🇧 I and my colleagues gave him a try and it has been good returns of our investment,Elvin Amos 🌏

    • I did traded on my own but it only left me in severe loss chasing market dip, I just got Expert AMOS info how good is he ?

    • I lost £1200 carelessly trading on a platform then I was referred to Mr ELVIN AMOS he recovered the loss and made an extra profit of £4600

    • He''s obviously the best, I invested 2000USD with him and I made a profit of 9101USD

    • My first investment with Elvis Amos earned over 30,000USD ever since then he has been delivering

  • Why does he have two shows to himself saying the same thing

  • From Samsung hater to Samsung convert. I needed a Flip to flip sides. Samsung is the only one really innovating. All Apple and Google do is push us to the Left by censoring the Right. Go, South Korea! 🇰🇷

  • It's about AD, LeBron and Westbrook this season

  • I only need Double Dash and NBA Street Vol. 2 which the latter I played more on my Xbox. I think I'm ok not playing Twilight Princess. Play it once and that's it. No time to play it. Need quick pick-up and go.

  • Double Dash in the desert 🏜 level with the quicksand no longer lags. Haven't tested it at the Wario Coliseum but it should be smooth. Dolphin MMJ rocks. Not the MMJR. That lagged on me.

    • I like how you are talking about Mario Kart now 😂

  • Russ still in his prime and if AD and Bron healthy it’s gonna be scary, Kendrick nunn, Malik monk, melo, Wayne Ellington

    • @john jame are you talking about lebron or russ?? I said russ isn't in his prime and i referred to LBJ as reference 2 make a point...i don't know what are you talking about..

    • you are saying Russ won a finals MVP??bro i'm done with you.....enough said....google does wonders for stupid people.....

    • @T yall say it to every player in 30s when 30s is their physical prime players are playing in their 40s wake up

    • @john jame I don't? I never said I want players to suck. I'm saying age is gonna get to him. Just like all athletes. Stop putting words in my mouth.

    • @T y do yall want players to suck?
