  • we've been talking about M.

  • B.

  • We've been talking about James Harden.

  • We've been talking about LeBron James Kyrie Irving has to be on the league M V P List The brothers, the showstopper.

  • Let's just call what is?

  • Let's just call it what it is.

  • The brother is a showstopper.

  • I can't take it away from him.

  • I think that Kyrie Irving right now is the greatest show in the NBA.

  • I'm talking about What if fans had an opportunity at this moment in time to walk through the turn.

  • Stop, Kyrie Irving should be the number one attraction in the NBA as we speak.

  • Now we're gonna get aside.

  • We're gonna shove aside the fact that the Brooklyn Nets have been winning games without K D.

  • You could actually make a reverse argument instead of KDB in the M V.

  • P early in the season when he was averaging 30 and healthy Hell, he should be the M v p.

  • Again because they win it without him.

  • Okay?

  • I mean, I mean, damn what you're seeing from Brooklyn right now is what you see.

  • And I told you that was gonna happen.

  • But when I think about Kyrie Irving and what he is doing right now, Averaging 27.75 point nine assists.

  • Alright, 4.9 rebounds.

  • Shoot 51% from the field, 42% from three point range.

  • 89.2% from the free throw line.

  • The nastiest handle in basketball, as you would say, the greatest finisher for a small man at the basket, maybe in NBA history.

  • And you just look at everything he does the brother do a spin move and so forth.

  • It's just a fall away jumper, but everything just looks pretty.

  • Remember when Michael Jordan was in the contest against Dominique in 88 and he just went and sprinting and and and just flew through the air?

  • Jordan.

  • And you just sort of like All right, that looks nice until they slow molded.

  • And then you see him cocked back and kick the legs and you're like, Damn, it looks a lot pretty.

  • Dr.

  • J Point.

  • You know what?

  • You don't have to slow it down for Kyrie.

  • You just see Kyrie do certain things and it's like, damn!

  • And I'm just saying with Brooklyn winning with KD being out with him, putting on the show after show after show.

  • Remember, I'm gonna do that.

  • Said the man should retire.

  • If you don't wanna play basketball, you want You want to take a sabbatical?

  • You wanna take a hiatus, Dammit, Retire until you're ready to come back and play basketball.

  • Well, damn it, He came back ready to play?

  • Apparently that hiatus has done something for Kyrie.

  • Irvin needs to be on the list.

  • The league and VP on us because the brother is doing it, They're winning.

  • And he is a flat out show stopper.

  • The greatest show in the NBA right now.

  • Remember, I'm the guy who's been calling Kyrie the greatest show in the NBA for two years now.

  • The greatest handle.

  • No, no, the greatest, the greatest.

  • I don't recall that Max the Greatest has said it enough That it seems I'm not sure about that.

  • I co sign it, get the tape.

  • Your problem.

  • All right.

  • But listen, that's right.

  • And I'm not saying that you didn't already that that I mean, like, he's been the greatest show for a long time.

  • I think the difference is he is at his behaving now on the court like one of the MVPs of the league.

  • I agree with you that he is on the list right now.

  • He's on the in the top 10, which is the top five.

  • Well, this is the problem.

  • That's where I'm at five.

  • This is the problem.

  • There's no top 10 list for M v.

  • P is top five and everybody else.

  • Well, okay.

  • Is he more valuable than Embiid?

  • So far?

  • I'm not saying that not not a and B.

  • Let's go.

  • LeBron LeBron Harden, Who's on his same team?

  • Is he?

  • Has he been more valuable than Dame Lillard?

  • That's debatable.

  • Really?

  • Yeah.

  • I'd like to have that debate because Dame Lillard Look, I'm not going down to dismiss Dame Dollar.

  • Come on now.

  • But Damian Lillard has been more You take the totality of this season.

  • Look what they don't know with injury owner kids.

  • Oh, no, no C J McCollum.

  • I got no problem with me.

  • I got no problem.

  • I got no problem with siege.

  • I'm sorry with Dame and Kyrie before throwing Yonas out.

  • You're throwing Yannis out the top five.

  • You might be six.

  • You're throwing Yokich out?

  • Yes.

  • You're throwing your Yeah.

  • I don't like what I'm saying, Never like what?

  • I don't like what I'm seeing from Denver.

  • I don't like what you got to win.

  • You got to win.

  • I don't like what I'm seeing from.

  • This is how good yogurt has been.

  • He's done everything the M B has done on offense.

  • Really, Yokich has probably been a little better on now, not on defense on offense.

  • You'll get, you could argue, has been the best player in basketball this year.

  • He's been insane.

  • I can't give it to Kyrie over Yogi.

  • He's in the top 10.

  • I like where you're going with that.

  • First of all, the main thing to me for his for his value, is that the question was, how are he and Harden going to share the backcourt?

  • Are they both committed to be in great meaning, achieving great results?

  • Or are they out for self?

  • Kyrie and Harden have both shown beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are committed to greatness to team greatness.

  • So they're both M V P candidates and Harden is in the top five.

  • He's played even better than Kyrie.

  • No one's more spectacular than Kyrie.

  • Let me check that No one's as spectacular as Kyrie.

  • He is the number one most spectacular.

  • Let's go the whole thing.

  • He's not in the top five M V p 90 X Games.

  • Listen, listen, I'm looking at Denver.

  • They won four straight.

  • Uh, but they just started getting going up until recently, you know, they were struggling to be a 500 team.

  • That wasn't the Joker's fall.

  • I understand that.

  • As Coach Malone accurately pointed out, other dudes needed to step up and Jamal Murray was coming on as late as of late.

  • I get all of that.

  • We see Utah.

  • They're the best team in basketball, Brooklyn and and Philadelphia got the next to best records.

  • Brooklyn's got the third best record in basketball.

  • We know what kind of streak they've been on.

  • Kyrie has been nothing short of sensational along the way.

  • My only not if you want to take Kyrie out of the top 55 but it would only be for one reason and one reason only.

  • Games missed.

  • It ain't play.

  • I'm saying it ain't his play.

  • No, it's not just play at all.

  • I would still not having top five.

  • Uh, I would have him six or seven.

  • Please, please, please let me tell you one thing.

  • There's something to be said for being the best show in the game.

  • No doubt Know something out That about that Because it electrifies everybody.

  • Let me.

  • I just want to read you something that yolk it has been doing.

  • Can I just read?
