    Collin Sexton has his own game. Dude plays with nothing but heart. He has no comparison at all. He just gotta keep that passion and he is well on his way to greatness.

    I think Collin Sexton might be the next big thing for the cavs. He has a very nice attitude about the game.

    If LeBron stays he will be rookie of the year I really believe LeBron is going to stay for his family and for the city I don’t think there’s much more for him to do other than bring another championship home the reason why I think that is because why would he want to trophies in Miami with 18 that was not hi if LeBron stays he will be rookie of the year I really believe LeBron is going to stay for his family and for the city I don’t think there’s much more for him to do other than bring another championship home the reason why I think that is because why would he want 2 Trophies in Miami and only one in Cleveland It just doesn’t add up mathematically if he’s going to win another one he’s going to do it here all they have to do is keep this kid and put a couple more pieces in the trade mix and they have a serious problem in the east which they already are I am telling you that kid has the killer instinct he wants it he wants it bad

  • Ray Peterson
    Ray Peterson 21 day ago

    People are reading too deep into LeBron what they don’t realize is he need somebody to take the workload somebody that takes it has to be young and fast then he can have his perimeter shooters ready because people will be watching Collin Sexton it’s a nice diversion then you throw a little king in the mix and I’m telling you this can easily be one of the biggest tandems ever the king and the young bull will rise and he will teach him and probably possibly make him one of the best players in the league it’s up to him whether not he wants to do that

  • Ray Peterson
    Ray Peterson 21 day ago

    Claudio Davis-Acosta 24 days ago

    I said it before and I'll say it again, Jay Williams got his ass on backwards. Let's put it this way; walker will be a better player than sexton, and don't get me started, when he couldn't get the Knicks to draft sexton he trashed Knox. I already sent Knox and trrey a copy of this broadcast. And as for that fake ass loudmouth Steven A, I so too did send all his negative talk about my boy Ntilikina so they can diss both their asses the minute they try to kiss up. Sexton better hope lebron will stay cause then he will shrink when he is relied upon to carry the Cavs. I already feel sorry for him!!

    jay williams is speaking #FACTS, i seen that game hes talking about against Minnesota, youngbull is the real deal when it comes to passion and heart and most of all winning, hes a ceritfied killer on the court, Ive been watching him since before he went to college ball playing fir pebblebrook, the youngman is going to be great especially if he finds that chemistry with his teammates.

  • Calvin Hancock
    Calvin Hancock 25 days ago

    Hey! Westbrook haters even without Harden and Durant he still gets his team into the playoffs and dominates his position not his fault the people in his organization don’t recognize talent and keep the team together that was throught of as a championship team!

    Sexton cant shoot then why was his shooting percentage better than young. Head to head outshot him as well.

  • Zickery Kung
    Zickery Kung 25 days ago

    Sexton at 6'2.. may be too short to defend the shooters of Warriors. His work ethics in college is insurance that he is NBA ready as the NBA have tighter schedule than college. A bigger quality defensive guard would be better against the Warriors since they run behind screens and force you to switch so both players on defense have to be able to defend the shot. Not to mention the shooters are either pretty tall and/or has quick releases.

    • Lord0fDozier
      Lord0fDozier 25 days ago

      Zickery Kung Sexton does have a 6’7 wingspan. His length is overlooked because of his height measurement.

    Wow I agree with Max on this one, the guys that can shoot it are usually better than guys who can't

  • j no one
    j no one 25 days ago

    I agree with most points but the last thing about drafting guys who can shoot it in college isn't always a safer bet. As a Lakers fan I will defend Lonzo but if we keep picking on his shot, remember he shot over 41% from 3 in college, so I would say that was a safe pick but obviously it didn't work out well this season. I believe it will be fixed, most people's problem was can he get it off and he proved that he can but he's just not making them. All this to say, just cuz you can shoot it in college doesn't always translate, and even Steph had to fix his shot when he got to the NBA and I watched Steph since his first day at Davidson and he was special, don't sense the same with Trae Young. Collin Sexton is a safer and better pick, cuz Trae will either be Steph or Jimmer (and I looooved Jimmer but his shot didn't translate)
