  • As far as athleticism n physical build....zion williamson is evolution of an basketball athlete......however he def isn't the best player on duke.... but if he drops that weight ( hard on knees nba 80 game seasons) and continues to improve.....he will be the next greatest....mj...kobe...lebron....zion

  • NCAA biggest hypocrite organization there is. 1 and done rule is horrible. Even more deplorable is the rule that a kid cant return to his college team if he declares for the draft and then changes his mind. Who the HELL came up with that?! How on earth does that benefit the student athlete?! Oh and how bout players who have to redshirt a year if they want to transfer schools for whatever reason?! Whats the sense in that? Who makes up these rules? A small group of rich folks whose only interest is for the schools and the NCAA to maintain control over the student athletes, while keeping that money coming in. Honestly its sickening when you think about it.

  • Itz never boring to see champions..not in my opinion anyway...I love to see how greatness can improve and keep the greatness going

  • Hope he stays for 4years that would be amazing seening that big picture

  • They better not lose ti Carolina!!!That is how it goes in the Tarheel State!!! DAMIT, they better not! LMAO

  • Duke will lose in the playoffs when it matters again! Ha ha! Even Zion can’t save them!

  • Molly: "UConn Women's Basketball" Max: **Patronizing** "Sure...Yeah...absolutely." Molly: **Gives funny look**

  • They don't need to shoot 😂

  • North Carolina this yr NC.

  • Geezer, too bad they dont give out the trophy on Nov 6 right? Cal has plenty of talent. Duke couldnt miss, UK was cold. It happens. See you in the FF.

  • Steven A's very first assignment should have been to appear on TV with a presentable hairline

  • Go duke

  • SAS talked for 3 minutes straight...

  • Word was there was a 90% chance that Williamson was coming to UK and Duke wasn't even on short list.. What the hell happened?

    • John Rees yeah man dukes just a power house this year UK will be monster next year for sure though

    • +RedGotSauce 24 that makes sense. They followed him. Another strange occurrence, Cal didn't tell in the best PG. The toughest part is that I feel UK has no shot this year... And we're just getting started. Gonna be a long year knowing #9 ain't coming. 😠

    • John Rees Tre Jones happened bro🤷🏽‍♂️

  • Can I get a sub please? This is the 32nd channel I just posted the same plea request on and nothing yet help a brother out I need to start up this channel dream dream man dream

  • he makes espn not even watchable. such an idiot.

  • Stephen A is on a whole new level of shut shut shut up

  • Molly need to shut up shouting shit I can't even hear what Stephen A and Max ve saying sometimes

  • Duke is not winning the national title mark my words. All I saw was a bunch of talented freshman running up and down with no defense on both sides. When they run into those so call mid majors with 4year starters that are gym rats in the tournament watch what happens

  • Zion is already better than lebron

  • Yeah ...yall know why UNLV didn't win.

  • The worst part about this show is molly saying random shit every 10 sec like she's involved in the convo

  • Duke? Really? Whooo is right

  • *Good thing Molly is attractive, otherwise she would be useless!!!*

  • Zion will be everything that Lebum James was supposed to be ! Who agrees ?

  • Max always makes the most irelevant points


  • Maybe it's just me but Zion Williamson reminds me of Shawn Kemp, I can't speak for the world but he's the second coming of Shawn Kemp. Too bad he's gonna be a Cavalier.

    • You're right

    • David Jackson ur spot on ! But Zion has slightly better Handles, meanwhile kemp was more chiseled (before he got fat) coming out. Great comp tho! Zion=kemp, Barkley and a little Julius Randle all rolled into one.

  • He wont perform the same on the next level my opinion that up and under move gone get killed in the NBA

  • I want the Mavs to tank for Williamson. IDGAF

  • 💔

  • First things First My GODD Duke could very well be unstoppable

  • Zion or RJ Barrett to the Cavs?

  • Duke or Cavs???

  • Y’all go look up the Brewster boys they up next gg🗣🗣

  • Saying they can’t shoot, but cam reddish dropped 25 on 7 3s

  • Hello people of youtube If u read this U have to click On this link u have to thats the game so click it like it subscribe to the channel i have a bunch 9f different content

  • Why is he always so loud.

  • UConn’s women’s basketball team 😂😂😂

  • Man if I hear another 'this team is boring because they are really good and win all the time' argument from sports reporters...shameful. You want a great team to strive to lose? Shame Max Kellerman. Shame.

  • Your thoughts on: Which NBA team will be the BEST fit for Zion? Which NBA team will be the WORST fit for Zion? Which NBA team is most likely to draft Zion?

  • Zion is the best player on duke

  • Unlv beat duke then lost the next year against them

  • then cam drops 7 threes

  • They are losing to UVA

  • Kentucky was like wuuuuuuuht

  • Why do people use

  • 1:57 what?? 😂🤣

  • max kellerman hamburger sauce- corner-mouth-unwiped.

  • Duke looked dominate, no doubt...but both teams are young. What happens when they face a veteran laden team??? With that being said, I wouldnt be surprised if Duke wins the National championship and possibility go undefeated. This should be a fun season to watch college basketball.

  • I gotta turn down the volume every time smith talks ...

  • Can Reddish???

  • they sleepin on cam

  • Silence the haters. Go Duke!!!

  • Women’s basketball she said😂😂😂😂

  • Fab Five didn't shoot much!! What is Jalen talking about? 🤔🤦🏾‍♂️

  • Rj and zion are like kobe and shaq

  • I cant watch, this guy is an idiot. Low IQs only.

  • Stephen A stop hogging up the air time. Relax bro it's one game. You're drooling.

  • Zion can't shoot Stephen A stop lying.

  • Zion can't shoot Stephen A stop lying.

  • 1 and done kills college basketball.

  • Duke will lose a game or two.

  • Molly holding her husband jalen Rose down. She took a shot a c web.

  • Stephen A is a overhyped dick rider. Loud mouth fool.

  • Steven A dragging everyone into his hysteria

  • This is all great and all but, the real question iiiiis. How the fuck did Jones miss that lay up (that Zion did follow)? 😂

  • Stephen A. having an orgasm.

  • He said yeah, absolutely 😂😂😂

  • Watch the Phoenix Suns get the number one pick and be gifted on of these two...but then they draft Josh Jackson all over again or his likeness.... Could have had DeAaron Fox. Theres a reason Historically great franchises like SA, BOS, LAL, POR, CHI all are high W% (All top 10 win rate) franchises... THEY CAN ASSEMBLE GREAT TEAMS through the draft.

  • RJ Barrett and Zion Williamson would look nice in a knicks uniform 👀😏

  • Shout out to Stephen A. checking g Molly's response about the Fab 5 not winning the Chip. You get dusted by 30, the ONLY reason you lost is because the other team is just better.

  • Bread and games to feed the chicken brains.

  • UNLV went undefeated? man i always though my hometown college basketball team was trash

  • the left handed gods on duke lmao

  • that missed layup in the beginning had me shook

  • Stephen a tries too hard now. Compared to Shannon sharpe. Shannon sharpe has balance of excitement

  • If Duke plays like this there isn’t a team in the NCAA that would beat them. I don’t expect this team to hit as many threes as they did like this though. Their bench even contributed like 6 or 7 threes the whole team was firing on all cylinders it’s not gonna be like this every game.

  • "Uconn women's basketball" one cares molly

  • Cam Reddish Is Underrated 💯💯

  • I cant wait to play with zion on 2k20

  • "Jalen Rose is right they don't shoot" ... WTF was he watching, they shot Kentucky eyes out....Reddish and O'Connell alone will out shoot almost anybody..... this guy smh...🤔

  • Duke going to win it all this year

  • Max reaction to uconn women lmao ahahaha
