  • Who do you think needs to win the title the most this year?

  • Ready for this?

  • Hold on to your hats?

  • Yeah, the answer is LeBron James needs to win it the most.

  • The answer is LeBron James, because you can't take this out of context.

  • It has to be players that have a reasonable chance to win that are on championship caliber teams.

  • Who does it do the most four and who does it hurt the most?

  • If they don't get it done, it's LeBron who needs it the most.

  • Number one.

  • The stakes are higher.

  • He's chasing Jordan like he can't have too many seasons where they're really no excuses.

  • He needed to win the championship, and he just lost to a better team.

  • I'm not talking about the K D Warriors.

  • Dumb Dominique, like Katie, joined a 73 win team.

  • No one else had a chance.

  • I don't hold that against LeBron.

  • I don't count it against him.

  • Those two losses, I don't count against him dragging the Cavs kicking and screaming in 2007 to the finals.

  • He had no business in losing, so what he had It's ridiculous.

  • It's an amazing accomplishment that he got them there.

  • I don't count losing to the Warriors the first time.

  • When when Kyrie and Kevin Love were both hurt, he still took him six games by himself.

  • All those things are a lot of them.

  • Just They redound to LeBron's, you know?

  • They cruise to his greatness, right?

  • I'm talking about you lost to Dallas when you had Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh I'm talking about.

  • Then you ended that four year run by losing to just another team.

  • Spurs were great, but so were you.

  • And you just lost your gonna do that again.

  • And you're talk about Michael Jordan.

  • Very difficult to start making that argument.

  • But the other thing is, go ahead.

  • Let me real quick and then real quick.

  • Then you come back at me.

  • The other thing is, we'll go go ahead.

  • Um, I don't wanna chew up all the time.

  • Go ahead.

  • Yeah.

  • I mean, I could argue a different player, but really, the argument is anybody but LeBron like Max.

  • I got a question for you.

  • I got a question for you, Max.

  • Who is your favorite rapper of all time?

  • Max?

  • Ghost Hope those face ghost ghost stays okay, and that is based on.

  • That's based on when you heard it and how it felt to you.

  • I brought that up because this Jordan argument is insane.

  • People who think Jordan's the best, he's gonna be the best, no matter what LeBron does.

  • And people who like me know that LeBron is the greatest.

  • We already know it.

  • We don't need another championship.

  • LeBron stands to gain very little from this championship.

  • It's not gonna change anybody's understanding of how good he is.

  • Nobody else outside of you thinks that ghost faces the greatest rapper of all time and it doesn't matter.

  • And like you, I would say gnaws is my favorite rapper of all time.

  • You right?

  • But no one would.

  • No one agrees with you but you The point is, it's in the eye of the beholder at this point, and I understand that LeBron has been a LeBron has been an outstanding GM.

  • LeBron has built a legacy off the court and I was listening to a podcast last night where Jim Gray said that LeBron James was like Curt Flood, which makes perfect sense to me and him ushering in this new age of player empowerment that is outstanding.

  • He's done all that while being the best player in the universe for his entire career.

  • Like LeBron James does not need this championship.

  • He doesn't gain anything from this championship.

  • He's already all time.

  • Great perk.

  • I'm sure you agree with me.

  • First of all, match.

  • You thought you was gonna get away with that statement?

  • That was the most ignorant thing I've ever heard you say on this show.

  • You thought I wasn't gonna come on here.

  • Then I popped up on the screen.

  • You would be good.

  • I mean, it was ridiculous.

  • How can you possibly say, Ah, guy that just won the title?

  • That he needs the winner?

  • He's the one that's up this season, the one that needs to win the title the most.

  • Are you serious?

  • Right now?

  • He just won a championship.

  • Who needs to win the title?

  • The most person is James Harden.

  • James Harden is the guy that needs to win the championship the most.

  • James Harden is the one that didn't had 900 teammates.

  • James Harden right now is the one down here in Houston throwing hissy fits and forcing his way out and being unprofessional, throwing basketballs at teammates during practice.

  • And if he gets traded to a contender, he's the one that needs to win a championship.

  • Ah, God has led the regular season for three straight.

  • Can I, Max, can I finish?

  • I just let you talk a whole lot of foolishness out there To the millions of viewers talking about LeBron James needs is the person that needs to win the title.

  • And now I need to finish and tell you why.

  • I feel like James Harden is the one is because he's sports in this way out of Houston franchise that he built up from from from for the last, what eight or nine seasons toe contend the team and he sports in this way out.

  • And he said that he wants to win the championship.

  • So if he if he gets traded, if he gets traded toe contender, I don't wanna hear anything else from James Harden.

  • He's the one that needs to win the championship, but I can't believe that.

  • I believe that you that you you would be right if he was on a team.

  • If James Harden were on a team that had a chance to win a championship, you would be right.

  • But right now the reality is on.

  • The Houston Rockets has a 0% chance to win a championship.

  • So if this is if we take the status quo right now, Harden don't have a shot.

  • Does he need it in an abstract way, of course.

  • But the reality is LeBron James is on the best team in the league.

  • They just won the championship.

  • They got better in the off season, their massive favorites to win again.

  • Who else is in that situation?

  • Yanis.

  • Even if you would have gotten Bogdanovich withdrew Holiday drew holidays with Anthony Davis.

  • They didn't come close to winning a championship.

  • Yanis isn't on the best team in basketball.

  • Kawhi Leonard.

  • You saw Paul George go away in the playoffs.

  • People are not expecting different.

  • It's not like they got Rondo in the off season.

  • You like Phoenix?

  • So do I.

  • But are they ready to win a championship right now when you are the best player in the world and you got maybe the second or certainly a player in the world on your team and your the defending champs and you're the massive favorites you gotta win.

  • Yeah, but But, Max, you always you are.

  • How can you say that, though?

  • Just because they have the best team, You act like the Lakers lost last year.

  • You act like they didn't accomplish and win the 18 championship.

  • You have the nerve.

  • You have the nerve to come on here and say that LeBron James.

  • And then you go back to this goat conversation about him being him, needing these championships to catch guard.

  • Jordan.
