    Max said that the Lakers won 10, okay they won 10 from 1980,but the Boston Celtics are the kings of the 20th century,the Boston Celtics won 16 Championships In The 20th century compared to lakers 11,They Won 5 more,and the 21st century isn't finished yet,the lakers won more in this century,but this century has not finished, the Boston Celtics has more retired numbers,and championships,and when the Boston Celtics won 11,the lakers won only 5, we need to respect all eras,and he means from the old days,well,the Lakers won 5-6 or seven approx in the old days too,so what?,the Celtics are the Celtics,and the Celtics dominated the lakers more in the finals,this is my opinion, don't @ me please,the Celtics won 16 Championships In The 20th century,the lakers 11,come on,the Celtics has the most championships in nba history,the only team in nba history to won 11 championships in 13 years,8 straight yes, the Boston Celtics are the Boston Celtics ☘️,and we need to.respext all the eras,every era has a legends and has a mens,and has a teams and has a rules and yeah ,this is my opinion one more time,the Boston Celtics are the Boston Celtics ☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️,#17,he said modern okay,what is the problem with old days,a shame?,like they didn't count?,they count the same in my opinion, championship is a championship no matter the era that they played for, before 1980,the Boston Celtics:13 Championships,and the lakers only 6-7,come on,why max keeps talking modern,old count too, respect old days,the Boston Celtics rise before the lakers yes,the Celtics made a dynasty before the los angeles lakers,the Boston Celtics won a lot too,so yeah,the Boston Celtics won 17 Championships in the 20th century,the most closest is the lakers,and 6 championships difference,the lakers won 5 in this century,the Celtics won 1,and still the Celtics still have more championships than the lakers,the Boston Celtics,and let's say from 1957,the Boston Celtics won 16 Championships in 43 years in the 20th century,and one more time the 21st century hasn't finished yet,80 years left hhh,the Boston Celtics are the Boston Celtics yeah ☘️,and I can talk more,bleed green 💪☘️

    AD from Chicago so is it really a stretch? If Lakers win this year he might end up like Kawhi and sign with his hometown team. In both cases they were/are on expiring contracts.

    I don't believe A.D will go to the Bulls next season, perhaps later in his nba career he might. I'm from Chicago too, but if I were an Nba star I wouldn't join a rebuilding Bulls team with a poor decision-making front office. I also prefer to live somewhere warm all year round. Chicago's corrupt politics and cold winters alone are hard to live with, not to mention its crime rate.

    The Bulls have a nice young core with LaVine, White, Lauri & Carter Jr.. Add AD and a veteran and all of a sudden the bulls are a Top 3 team in the east.

    It doesn’t make sense for him to even leave the lakers in general, he forced his way out new orleans, because that team wasn’t going anywhere, and said he only wanted to be in LA, even if the lakers lose, I think he’ll still resign and give them a chance, but hey who knows? We’re all laughing now, but he could end up with the bulls😂

    Everything SAS say always go opposite...AD have a better chanceto be the best player if he goes to the bulls then to play with Lakers. AD is young like the bulls team you don't want to stick around a team that's about to go veteran mode soon like LA

    Both these children are idiots. AD like all super stars follow the money, fame and sentiment as to where they feel comfortable. If Chi is home to AD it will always be in serious consideration to his career so these kids broadcasting an indifference to Chi is just silly talk to fill up the moment. They are paid to sell stupidity and they do it very well.

    Stephen A Smith is so delusional when it comes to where players want to play. News flash not everybody wants to play in LA or New York. Do you know how much money you'll save playing anywhere but New York or California in taxes. What if going out every night and partying isn't high on my priority list?

    Of course AD was going to tell Chicago fans that, "we shall see". He wasn't going to disrespect his hometown by telling them, "y'all dreaming and keep dreaming", lol.
