He didn't think of Briana coming back from that injury because no one cares about the WNBA. XD LOL!! Sorry, just keeping it really real

Max appears to be the only one that's being realistic about this. Yes, we all wanna see KD come back in his original form, but that's not guaranteed. Stephen A is getting his hopes up too soon

I like KD, but I think he was bullied into leaving the Warriors. He could easily get another ring with the Warriors for the 2021 season, but no. I think his people got in his head and he left . He left a freaking great team with a great system, owners, players, coach, etc. For what? Really, for what? He's been on teams with at least one other super star before so why leave Warriors?

I haven't even watched the video yet but I'm gonna bet that at some point SAS will say that KD is: 6'11 with a 7'6 wing span, who can pull up from 30! This brotha is special! Edit: LOOOL almost word for word, SAS never disappoints

Dominique Wilkins did. After his achilles injury, he came back as an all-star. Scoring as much as he used to. Although the injury somehow shortened his prime.

This is what’s gonna happen, KD is gonna become a mainly a spot up/catch shooter. He might lay it in once a while, but all those reckless dunks and crossovers are over with. The J will always be there but he will definitely be less aggressive.

Even if KD comes back and averages 20-25 PPG he will be fine. People sleep on Dinwiddie and Levert too, I think they could get a decent player with the 19th pick in this draft , not sure if they will bring back Joe Harris but if they do that's another decent piece.

I don’t get when people say KD is the best BBall player in the world when LeBron just won his 4th championship and finals mvp and was second in the mvp vote and KD is coming off a terrible injury where he missed the entire season and prolly won’t be the same again. Doesn’t make since

kD really went to GS when the fourth seed in the west was the clippers w/ pat bev & Lou Williams the west was weak but he knew he would become irrelevant once he couldn’t beat steph cause after 16’ he wasn’t beating golden state.

The question is how well does Durants leadership compare to Lebrons. Because the culture with Kyrie and Lebron has been better than Kyrie by himself

Stephen A is a always dissing Max and trying to make him seem foolish. Because he’s a white dude, it’s like Max is fighting with one arm tied behind his back. He can’t speak back as strongly as he might otherwise because of it. I think it wouldn’t be so bad if Max just took the gloves off and went at Stephan A on equal footing. To be honest I prefer Shannon Sharpe because he sticks strictly to his opinions and doesn’t try to make Skip seem like a buffoon even though Skip often behaves like one.

Golden State? Are u dreaming? They don't have a team besides Steph and Clay. They need another player.
KD will come back....but it is over. Kobe couldn't do it and no-one else.
I think KD's career is over. No-one comes back from that injury....especially the way went down.

I predict KD gonna take more of a "shooting guard-like" role to preserve his health. I think the amount of time KD took to recover definitely helps him. I think he'll be fine.
