    Jay Williams is up there with Skip Bayless in how often he is wrong and how unfounded their claims are. Emanuel mudiay is 6’5 and has much bigger shoulders than Sexton and is more athletic. Doesn’t mean he’s a better player than Sexton is, just saying jay willaims claims are ridiculous

    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 9 months 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 9 months ago

    I believe LeBron James stays and Collin Sexton becomes rookie of the year those two will make each other better the king and the young bull

    For ALL the times we say Molly can't SHUT UP n let the Debate take place, Molly should've jumped in here n Reiterate the Question, which was "Is Collin Sexton enough to keep the Cavs Relevant?" NOT to keep LeBron there, or to play with LeBron..

    Claudio Davis-Acosta 9 months 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!!

    It is an exaggeration to say “Mudiay was not in same stratosphere with Sexton in athleticism”….Mudiay was top 5 pick & known for being really athletic but couldn’t shoot

    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.

    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!
