  • All I got to say is if KD leaves AD you come and play for GS and join a dynasty and be the new NBA great player. and get yourself some championships so everyone can hate on you but will validate you as being in the running for the goat.

  • We don't care if he's want to play or don't. Pelicans will win one. We don't need him. He wants to play with the warriors. Let him go.. Louisiana Strong!!! We get it out of the mud that's why its The BOOT. Rams against the Saints. LSU vs Texas a&m. LSU coach & student schandal. We will over come it all . Just watch! We the fans say to AD you all in or you all out!

  • Kick rocks AD... Trade his ass now....

  • develop chemistry as they try to rush a championship overnight.

  • Zion didnt want to come to the Pelicans all fake news!!!!!!!!!!! Stop listen to media!!! Thats the only reason people post trades like this, is because of media. Yall want to talk about the Pelicans are a bad franchise an Zion should go to the LAkers or back to Duke or to the knicks???? Really ??? The LAkers had 4 top 5 picks in the NBA draft in the last 5 years!!!! In addition, they pick up Lebron James an still missed the playoffs every year 5 years straight!!!! The Pelicans only had 1 pick in top 5 and made the playoffs twice despite the injuries!!! The Pelicans are bad???!!! Yall out yall rabbit a$% mind!!! Facts are Pelicans: Have Zion Have AD, Jrue, Julius They also have David Griffin Alvin Gentry as coach & They have new training staff a PResident .. spent 4.6 million on a new training facility THey making positive progress!!! Zion will have fun and develop well in New Orleans, weather AD is traded or not!! MEdia need to stop hating!!!

  • Easy... trade LeBron for Zion!!! Zion don't want to play with AD. Pels want to keep AD. LeBron and AD want to play with each other. Griffin wants and needs to win now and keep AD. Lakers fans want to return to their youth movement. Palinka would be a God!!! Win/win situation!!!

  • What if the Knicks end up doing a 3 man trade and picking up free agents and they end up getting KD,AD, IRVING, AND KAWHI for just one year because all of that would be too expensive.

  • Man I haven't seen Damon Jones in a minute. That man look like he ate Damon Jones.

  • Only way AD come back is the pels sign rondo back and get another free agent shooter

  • Bro AD COME TO HOUSTON PLEASE‼️ we jus gotta get rid of everybody else🤣 3 Man rotation

  • He started off by saying to Stephen A. Smith....there’s million places I wanna take you 🤦🏼‍♂️ (PAUSE)

  • Bye bitch

  • the knicks arent signing anyone.

  • Sooo... AD lookn like a mid 90's Disney Villian, and SA lookn like BabyDaddy Smurf In the thumbnail 🤔

  • I would trade ben simmons for zion... I think ben is leaving to LA anyway.... if i was the in the 76ers Organization i would definitely entertain that idea!!!!!!

  • 9

  • You got till june 10 before you can say Zion era...Zion could do a Sophomore year at Duke...and if there's no star on the Pels, why not?

  • I hope the Knicks don't overpay for AD in any trade proposal ,They did that once for Carmelo. If the Knicks sign Durant and Irving and draft Barrett along with all that young talent they have I'd be very happy.

  • Man let's be real Damian Jones, David G... ex GM for the CAVS you cant make this shi up...Zion goes to New Orleans lol...translation AD is going to LA because they want LeBron James to win again!!! Then they go to KD who they've been trying to push out from day one! Look I hope KD stays in GS & I hope LeBron James gets no one doesn't he make everyone better around him!

  • FINALLY an interview with Stephen A where he doesn't go ultrasonic and off the rails lol. I think he should lose his voice more often. Lots of smart things to say, just hate it when it's more about him yelling than what he's yelling about 😉

  • Nah KD selfish bro😂😂

  • if the Bucks win, it will change it back to a collection of role players winning with one star drafted by the organization and developed. Giannis came in the league in 2013 and averaged 7 points his first year and 12 points his 2nd. In today's NBA instant gratification, Giannis would have been traded his 1st of 2nd year for low production. But the Bucks built the right way. Now 6 years later, if the Bucks win with just Giannis and a collection of role players (some of which can become stars from winning), they will put the league on notice to stop star chasing and build teams from the bottom up (draft and player development), not the top down (star stacking). The Warriors with Steph/Klay/Draymond were bottom up. The added Kevin but the core of their team was already there to establish chemistry over time. Teams with the best chemistry win whereby teams stacking may never develop chemistry as they try to rush a championship overnight.

  • Stephen A Smith is such a little B

  • KD opting back in you garbage pieces of shit. Y'all can keep talking about his free agency next year too.

  • Your not going to get a good return on a star in NBA. They’ll get unproven draft picks & NBA bums period

  • I hope they send him to Carolina

  • Stay of the weeeed

  • Davis wants out and trust me we do NOT want him here anymore. Let that unprofessional cry baby go!

  • I hate how he says New Orleans.

  • AD+KD+KYRIE=RINGS IN NY

  • AD is going to LA

  • I know we need someone at point, but AD needs to come home to the Chi to get some rings.

  • Man if ad was to come to Houston that wld be a 2 to 3 yr championship team easy

    • Marley Stewart how the hell houston will get Davis tho???

  • U think this whole system is rigged. How do the Pelicans get the number one pick but the Lakers continue to get all their trade deals blocked with big stars from CP3 to AD. Then you have teams much worse than than the Pelicans but they don’t get the chance to improve with a top pick? That just doesn’t seem alike the way to keep your league competitive

  • AD will look really nice in purple and gold.

  • AD to the clippers

  • Yeah just like he can’t be convinced to fix his unibrow

  • Better give Stephen A Smith a max contract before he wants a trade.

  • Why wouldn't they want to trade him to the Lakers ??two young Stars plus the fourth pick in the draft? 1st &4th pick duh P.S. wasn't It a few years ago with the same New Orleans team with a guard by the name of Chris Paul that couldn't go to the Lakers?

  • He going to The Warriors if KD leaves 👍

  • Stephen A needs some vacation time

    • And know that I’ve read the comments after my post, a lot of us we’re thinking the same thing. This man needs to rest

  • Stephen A needs to relax a bit. Needs some weEeEeDdd

  • A.D. is a bum, tremendous talent but weak minded and always hurt. Not a leader!

  • Our Somali Brother, Stephen A. Smith, has gone over the rails.

  • Damon Jones is loving life and eating for three.

  • Would be nice

  • SASPN.

  • Trade with cz and get brown Tatum bol bol and taco

  • If im the gm of the pelicans i trade anthony davis and etwan moore for terry rozier jason Tatum and al horford

  • He has to have a twin brother.

  • hello

  • That dude on the right in the thumbnail looks like the Grinch

  • AD looking at SAS like an Evil Genie who bout to grant a wish in the thumbnail

  • What the HELL is up with that DAMN AD pic? What are ya'll trying to say?

  • If I was NO. I would try and trade Zion pick and AD for Russell westbrook and somethin

  • Haha damn that sucks for Zion.

  • Pelicans should trade for the no. 3 pick, and sell zion and barret as the next mike and scotty.

  • The Lakers shouldn’t try to get Anthony Davis move on from him and target free agents and get a good pick! At this point the Pelicans and Anthony Davis are both a pain in the ass🤢🤣😂!! Just trade him somewhere and STFU about it!!

  • Id rather see zion lead his own team for a couple years anyway. History proves its good for development in young extremely talented players.

  • ESPN please fire SAS

  • I don't normally browse through RUvideo. But when I do, eyebrows.

  • Ad look like a gargoyle crossed with joker in this thumbnail

  • ruvideo.info/watch/sOaBt-RsKS0-video.html

  • Hello, Humans. Lex: (to Clark): There's nothing wrong with a good fight. Just remember, the man of tomorrow is forged by his battles today. ~Smallville TV Show TERRANCE OUT

  • Hmm I think the Pelicans should Trade AD to the Knicks. Get back RJ Barret, Knox, Deandre Jordan, Dennis Smith JR and draft picks. Then Trade off Knox, Holiday, Randle, Okafor and maybe even D.Smith jr. to get an athletic backcourt and depth to surround the play of your Explosive front court with Zion, Barret and D. Jordan. Then you can at least get a SG and have D.Smith Jr. at PG. The lakers assets don't look good. Blood clot Ingram, injury prone Ball and his father drama, the only thing you are getting with the lakers is the 4th pick and Kuzma and some depth. The Celtics have the potential at a nice package if they manage to resign Kyrie. Otherwise, Celtics need to build around Tatum and not gamble on a 1yr contract.

  • Stephen A Smith, I don’t want your opinion on any pelicans news. Your salty as fuck 🧂

  • Stephen A works 23 hours a day 6.5 days a week

  • Steven A has no home life

  • Anthony Davis to warriors .

  • ESPN will have a meltdown if AD decideds to stay

    • ABearsNerdCave why the fuck would he stay tho

  • Why are so many people concerned with Steven A workload? Y'all more concerned with his hours and workload, probably more than he is. No one is commenting about AD or the related topics, only about Steven A hours.

  • You can't make someone stay where they are not happy ,he doesn't wanna be in New Orleans for no amount of money ,let this man be happy life is short !!

  • ruvideo.info/watch/D_aNc8txEeM-video.html

  • Bruh bruh it’s 2019 20th Century CUT THAT DAME unibrow please it gotta go bruh that shit nasty 💯🤦🏾‍♂️💪🏿🤢🤮🤑

  • SAS is the new SS... Sean Salsbury

  • You can actually see this man SAS losing hair. ESPN squeezing him for everything his got damn

    • Nova Clark Why would anyone feel bad for SAS these days! Getting paid 10 million a year after all the ESPN layoffs!

  • N.Oo not trading him

  • Angry black man rants about how entitled black man thinks hes above the city of New Orleans and why thats fine.

  • Him and kyrie should go to the knicks

  • The knicks will trade the third pick, Kevin Knox and de Andre Jordan for ad

  • the craziest thing is that if LA got the third pick, NOLA could have Zion and RJ and you just can't buy that kind of chemistry. Imagine the two best Duke players and replacing everyone else with NBA caliber players, like that's a legit team. Jrue, Randle, Okafor, and the MANY talents from the Davis trade?? That's a SQUAD.

  • Just because you scream and holla doesn't make you right.,. and Duke players are overrated

  • Hi we are the pussies I mean pelicans we play basketball and eat fish whole, come and see us play and you will say "get a real mascot"

  • For God so loved the World that he gave his only begotten son that who ever believes in him will not perish but have everlasting life for God did not send his son into the world to condemn it but that the world through him can be saved Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the Father but by me 👣❤️📖📖📖

  • Y’all gon kill SAS working all them hours. Give this man a vacation AND a well deserved paycheck 🤦🏾‍♂️

  • And pelicans can't be convinced to trade him to the Lakers. Sorry LeBron.

  • if im Pelicans Id sent him to the Raptors

    • We'll give em Lowry

  • No way for AD to start again with a rookie..he has to go to LA and build a winning team with Lebron..let Zion, Ingram, Kuzma, Ball play together and grow with the Pelicans

  • AD is not super popular, is he?

  • Get rid of AD. It's not like the Pelicans mistreated him. They gave him a big contract a few years ago. They attempted to build a team around him. Things didn't work out with the Boogie Injury. I get it if he wants to go to a better situation but the guy's just turned into another egomaniac.

  • that THIN BEARDED JEW is one annoying MOTHERFUCKER

  • Trade the no 1 pick to the Lakers for LeBron james

  • Steven A predicted 95% Kyrie and KD to the Knicks. Wrong nobody want to play for a perennial loser.

  • AD demand the tread to the Lakers OR you will sit out a year and the Pelicans looooos out big time.

  • AD to Portland would be 👌

  • Mr. Anthony Davis, could you please go to the Charlotte Hornets, together with Kemba Walker you will get to the Eastern Conference Finals if not the finals, guaranteed.

    • 1523sta Kemba will be gone by then.

  • Knicks need to use Kevin Knox, Dennis Smith, Mitchell Robinson And RJ Barret (#3Pick) for A.D itll help Zion settle better in New Orleans

  • Stephen "when you look at that perspective" Smith
