    Legs funny for that unicorn line

  2. Sha on February 12, 2022 at 5:15 pm

    "He is a unicorn he you rarely see him"

    Im DONE

  3. Amari Jackson on February 12, 2022 at 5:16 pm

    It’s a shame, I’m not mad at Spencer, but I truly though KP was way better then he turned out to be.

  4. Jarrad Weir on February 12, 2022 at 5:17 pm

    Kp is a better 3 point shooter than both of them lol. Both will be gone by next season

  5. nate j on February 12, 2022 at 5:18 pm

    Now watch when Bradley Beal gets healthy that duo will be amazing

  6. Dr.Dan1! on February 12, 2022 at 5:19 pm

    Its so crazy how much KP gets rode for his injury history when he has literally been available the same amount or more than Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Kawaih Leonard, Paul George, Danillo Galanari, Joel Embid, John Wall, Gordan Hayward, Kemba Walker, Kevin Love, Jamal Murray, Chris Paul, Marvin Bagley, Spencer Dinwiddie, Davis Bertans, the list literally goes on and on. Torn ACLs, MCLs, Achilles etc. are all a major part of the game these days. You would be shocked to look at the season ending injuries that have occurred over the last several years. KP works hard, he’s vaccinated, he’s “mentally healthy” and he just wants to win. Idk why he gets such a bad wrap or why people hate on this young man so much. A career 20 point a game scorer. Yes his contract is to high just like a ton of players in the league. The Mavs always babied him when he could have played and always made him sit on back to back. Perfect example they have kept him out for last two weeks due to bone bruise on knee and Mavs gm even said they were being over cautious and admitted if it was playoff time he would be starting no problem.

  7. sweetboykenny on February 12, 2022 at 5:20 pm

    i knew it this is going to be happen and wishing KP the best at Washington wizard

  8. Uncle Nature on February 12, 2022 at 5:21 pm

    Perc is trippin. Brunson should be a bench player

  9. CLUTCHgene on February 12, 2022 at 5:23 pm

    Hearing the praise for Bertrans, tells me no one has been watching wizard games lol

  10. CYKA BLYAT on February 12, 2022 at 5:24 pm

    Dallas spending all money to kp while the camera is focus on luka thats why it traded to dc

  11. Davone Moses on February 12, 2022 at 5:25 pm

    You can tell no one there watches any Wizards games other than Perk. Guys calling Dinwiddie a dynamic scoring option???

  12. KP on February 12, 2022 at 5:27 pm

    Malika 2:11 using the mug to refrain from laughing as well 😂😂

  13. Gatis Jansons on February 12, 2022 at 5:28 pm

    Not a guy to run your offence through for 5-6min when Luka is off?
    NY ran the offence through KP for 30min and got in playoff zone and KP was an all-star before that ACL.
    Like he can totally do it. It’s all about the health/availability.

  14. Oskars Leo on February 12, 2022 at 5:30 pm

    Legler one to talk, played a lot of full seasons

  15. bryan jensen on February 12, 2022 at 5:31 pm

    Say his name right. Davis. Not Davis . pronounced like Dah vis.

  16. Rolands J on February 12, 2022 at 5:31 pm

    facepalm, mavs good bye. Tim is dumb as a stone

  17. Timo Metsänoja on February 12, 2022 at 5:36 pm

    KP still one of the most talented players in the league, but he hasn’t been able to shake off that injury bug… So he basically cannot be your second option on a contending team. No one can go win a title in the NBA alone. Absolutely no one… And you need to have your guys ready to roll. Two seasons ago, Dallas had the Clippers on the ropes and KP got injured… Last year, KP was not used in the offense, I still don’t know or understand why it was so, but it got Carlisle fired…

  18. RedOctagon27 on February 12, 2022 at 5:39 pm

    Terrible trade. You don’t give up KP for that im sorry. His defense alone this season was so important for Dallas. If this is about salary than its still dumb.

  19. Nicke H on February 12, 2022 at 5:41 pm

    Get Lauri Markkanen.

  20. Mark Jaysen on February 12, 2022 at 5:42 pm

    They’ve wasted the value of KP. They could have offered him to a better player like Gary Trent Jr. or Pascal Siakam. Christian Wood is a perfect partner for Luka as well just add other players and picks. Another 1st round exit for the Mavs.

  21. BBBT on February 12, 2022 at 5:42 pm

    He’s to injured prone, not his fault and not Mavs fault to do so

  22. Jimmy Greer on February 12, 2022 at 5:44 pm

    Having given it some thought….I think this can be really good. Without THJ the Mavs 2nd unit was looking kinda sus. But you allow Spencer to work against backups & take charge of the offense when Luka & Brunson are resting and now that 2nd unit offense has an identity. And it would be nice to see Bertan take advantage of some WIDE open looks.

    And yes, I like the flexibility it gives the Mavs. This gives Dallas like 4-5 pretty nice contracts they can trade….or keep, it’s not like they’re trash players and could work well with Luka. But yeah, they can trade for that Star player (I’m kinda looking at Portland…surely Dame ain’t gonna be happy and if Portland is looking to rebuild, we got some expiring & friendly contracts). Or trade them to make room to sign a star player.

    I’m also still hoping that Goran is interested in playing with Luka. Another combo guard who can handle the rock. Kinda want to see Goran & Spencer running that 2nd unit.

  23. Johnny B. Good on February 12, 2022 at 5:44 pm

    Luka & KP duo…
    dream is over.

  24. Garrett Graf on February 12, 2022 at 5:44 pm

    Mavs don’t have a chance until 2026 anyways because Suns, Warriors, Jazz, and Nuggets are too strong right now. Mavs 2022 are Spurs 1992.

  25. Niki Edmonds on February 12, 2022 at 5:46 pm

    LMAOOOO 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂

  26. Digafx Sound on February 12, 2022 at 5:46 pm

    Nickname the unicorn cause we hardly ever see him……🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😆😆😆😆

  27. ANEL ZAMARRIPA on February 12, 2022 at 5:47 pm

    No hubo quimica con Luka

  28. the #2 am i on February 12, 2022 at 5:48 pm

    Who’s gonna play DEFENSE for Mavs is the question?

  29. Dan Jones on February 12, 2022 at 5:51 pm

    Even though KP didn’t work out in Dallas at least they tried to get Luka a Star running mate. If it worked they could of been great as a duo but KP is to injury prone. And they still have been able to win games because Luka is just a Superstar.

  30. LaZaR on February 12, 2022 at 5:51 pm

    Dallas has not brought a decent reinforcement since they brought in Luka, KP was a great idea but which unfortunately never worked. KP was paid as a superstar and played as an average player (when he was playing at all, considering he misses half a season every year) all the other trades were disastrous, a bunch of leftovers that no one wanted! "Trading Curry for Richardson etc." When you watch this team the moment Luka leaves the field, all his efforts go to waste, because the rest of the team is not only unable to increase the lead, but is not able to maintain the result. Most of these players would sit on the bench in other teams, these players have no consistency,no real help for Luka or to lead the team while he is on the bench., and they get money/contracts at the expense of Luka. And at the end you have one-man team and bunch mediocre players with ~20M per season,If this continues,for how long will Luka stay there…

  31. ferdymb on February 12, 2022 at 5:52 pm

    Tim is savage for this 😂

  32. CYKA BLYAT on February 12, 2022 at 5:52 pm

    Luka so comfortable to shot 3s coz krisptaps is ready for the rebound.. im sure its big changes for luka for sure

  33. Brandon Giannascoli on February 12, 2022 at 5:53 pm

    It’s funny to see that these people get paid so much money to have no idea what they’re talking about

  34. Preston Petitti on February 12, 2022 at 5:54 pm

    When they said they love it for the mavs I knew they had no idea what they were talking about

  35. Josh Rowe on February 12, 2022 at 5:54 pm

    Kendrick Perkins couldn’t have been further off with his input it’s astounding

  36. Sean Leonard on February 12, 2022 at 5:54 pm

    Long time mav fan…terrible trade…straight up terrible value for K.P.

  37. Chase Brammer on February 12, 2022 at 5:55 pm

    I wanted nikola jokic and doncic to team up Geez that would be a beautiful thing to watch

  38. Charlie Charlie on February 12, 2022 at 5:55 pm

    I hope Spencer Dinwiddie proves you all wrong.

  39. Jimmy Brutus on February 12, 2022 at 5:59 pm

    1m58s mark. Woman totally clueless here. No humour at all? That was pretty funny

  40. Piano D on February 12, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    When I watched Last couple Games Porzingis looked really good , right now Mavs No Chance to do Something in Playoffs

  41. darth atlas on February 12, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    That unicorn line by Legs was so unexpected🤣😭😂

  42. PuGGY on February 12, 2022 at 6:05 pm

    I’m not really impress of Luca ‘s game , he got the ball 80% of the time , all there plays are run through him, I really thought they gonna utilize porzingis size and let him post or run some pick and roll , but they just let him stand in the perimeter and wait for the ball, usage rate of luca is too much, they won’t win championship if he plays like that even with good players around him

  43. SsF on February 12, 2022 at 6:06 pm

    If all men are the same for women, then why do they still choose?!

  44. Christian Dela Pena on February 12, 2022 at 6:07 pm

    I love the Bertans pick up! Although the perfect big guy beside for me are Jokic or Vucevic, Bertans will do.

  45. Michael Guest on February 12, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    Tf is a Dinwiddie?

  46. Massiah San on February 12, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    The Dallas FO is smart they’re maintaining flexibility for the big fa class in 2023! Remain flexible but staying competitive rn

  47. Sonyman Games on February 12, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Y’all saying he is fragile. He has played in 34 games this season. Luka has played in 41. KP has missed 6 games with Covid protocol. Now y’all tell me Doncic is injury prone. You don’t see that talk. Why don’t i see headlines – KD, Thompson or Kawhi are injury prone. All three have played in less games than KP the last three years. Media really paints the picture for casuals. SMH

  48. Gabriele Macera on February 12, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Immagine being paid to be an Analist for ESPN and still belive that Davis Bertrans is still a good 3pt shooter

  49. Dan Jones on February 12, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Richard Jefferson face is priceless 😳👀 😂🤣😅
