    WITH HIS TALENT HE SHOULD BE ON THE MOUNT RUSHMORE. HIS LEGACY AS A BASKETBALL PLAYER IS A HUGE UNPSETTING!!! Steven A "hes going to average 25 easy if he want to" EXACTLY. he could average 32-35 every year if he wanted to. Durant has been holding himself back his whole career. If he wanted to he would be averaging over 30 a game for his career easily!!! U can see he be holdin himself back.

    If KD gets a championship with Brooklyn, I’d still have MJ, LeBron, Kobe, Tim Duncan, Kareem, Magic, Bird, Russell all above him.

  3. Carter Bilbro on December 11, 2020 at 9:31 pm

    Already is

  4. Numba12Cede on December 11, 2020 at 9:37 pm

    Couldn’t even bring one to OKC in his peak prime. You really expect him to bring one to Brooklyn post injury? Nah

  5. Nevada PlaysFifa on December 11, 2020 at 9:38 pm

  6. A G on December 11, 2020 at 9:39 pm

  7. Igor Caldas on December 11, 2020 at 9:40 pm

  9. cliff woodbury on December 11, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    MAX IX 100% RIGHT!!! THIS IS NOT THE OLD EAST!!!! THIS EAST HAS SO MANY YOUNG STARS!!! Milwakew is a 3 point shooter away – i’d like Celtics to get another athletic big man taller than Thompson!!!

  10. ImHere on December 11, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    Lmfaoooooo the disrespect to kd be so pathetic from max kellerman it’s sad

  11. cristopher antonio armijo montalvan on December 11, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    The aware arithmetic conversantly look because tuesday subjectively concern off a berserk siberian. breezy, standing shame

  12. Unknown Person on December 11, 2020 at 9:44 pm

  14. ARTHUR E. ANDREWS on December 11, 2020 at 9:46 pm

  16. William Morris on December 11, 2020 at 9:51 pm

    KD is already an all time great. Undisputed top 15 player ever and climbing

  17. Tyson Allen on December 11, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    They need to fix the green to his hair, they aint never had that problem

  18. Tyquan Jones on December 11, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    Max you over here acting like skip

  19. denigster on December 11, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    lead ??? how when kyrie is the leader ??? kd doenst has the personalyty to lead a team, if he had he would never joined the warriors ^^

  20. Duck World on December 11, 2020 at 9:56 pm

    Kd is top 10 regardless to ever play the nba that man is something else

  21. charles john on December 11, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    I like Max but where dose he come up with this stuff. KD’s need more than that to regain respect after joining a them he had beat by 3-1 until he an Russ choked.

  22. SugarRay2 on December 11, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    KD will never win with his own team when LeBron is around! No doubt he’s one of the most lethal scorers ever but, he’s not a leader!

  23. Leon Anderson on December 11, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    Yeah 2 time finals MVP KD needs to win to be an all time great lol

  24. KnightBlitz _ on December 11, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    Alright let’s get into a debate in the comment sectiion: KD and Kyrie are not leaders thats how i personally feel KD is about his self progression Kyrie couldn’t lead Boston ok Give me some good points.

  25. J w on December 11, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    KD is already an all time great, even if he never won a championship, yes rings are important, but all you have to do is watch him play through his career to know how great he was. He wont bring them a ring either, he wont be the same as the young kd.

  26. Charles Cumberbatch on December 11, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    KD is about to find out who is the real toxic player in teaming up with kyrie

  27. Sellison TV on December 11, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    KD is already part of the greatest of all time.

  28. Scoundrel _ on December 11, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    2 rings niggas still bitching bout it 😭😭

  29. Unknown Person on December 11, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    if he wins with the nets then I consider him greater player than steph curry all time…

  30. Dimion Asael on December 11, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    Am I the only one to notice the new team – the "trail Lakers" 🤣 (on 2:13)

  31. Latre Love on December 11, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    Can pull up from ThUUUUrty but regardless since when isn’t KD an All Time Great he just not in the GOAT convo but definitely an All Time Great

  32. HDblueberry on December 11, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    did I mention: KEVIN CAN PULL UP FROM 30

  33. Austin Dickerson on December 11, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    KD is back on the scene, expect a great Nets season.

  34. Andrew Market on December 11, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    Whos shorty though?!

  35. J P on December 11, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    So when did Stephan A. get green hair?

  36. daniel ndone on December 11, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    What about the celtics

  37. marathonyute on December 11, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    that young lady is pretty yo

  38. ProtegeTrackz on December 11, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    @6:22 When Charly Caruso face showed up, I was like 😍😍😍

  39. Young Cj on December 11, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    The nets will smoke Boston heats bucks

  40. Joni on December 11, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    Already giving him the Kawhi Leonard hype 😂

  41. Cedric Asdfghjkl on December 11, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    Guys, the only thing he has to prove is to win a championship without 3 more all stars behind him. Outside of that he has achieved everything you could ask for and he is a top 10 player all time in my opinion.

  42. Lukas Sundberg on December 11, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    Will he? Why?

  43. Miles Williams on December 11, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    Max be hating on kd

  44. Kell OD on December 11, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    So, he won’t be an all time great. Got it. Thanks.

  45. MyPartnasAndMe on December 11, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    I always like looking at a roster when these analysts say “they’re gonna win it all” during a team’s first or second season together. The roster always looks different when they actually do win, if they ever win.

  46. Charles Cumberbatch on December 11, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    KD ain’t winning anymore championships

  47. Sincere Smithers on December 11, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    James harden and Kyrie WOULD DEFINITELY NOT WORK OUT

  48. Arexis Ghastly on December 11, 2020 at 10:27 pm

    Did anyone hear KD’s height, wingspan and where he can pull up from?

  49. JerryOne JonesSecond on December 11, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    He needs to win two rings to be considered an all time great

  50. Caleb Davis on December 11, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    espn needs to bring back shows that went over highlights because the gossip shows are suffering when it comes to topics
