    CP3 isn’t an effective leader. A true point guard should be deferential; he isn’t. He pouts when things go wrong; seems to be quite selfish.

    How is okay to acknowledge “limitations” when it comes to cp3 … but literally no one else?? SAS picks apart certain players games who are clearly great players but does not give the same respect to cp3 but somehow he’s a top 5 pg of all time???? That is just simply not true. Let’s face facts, this was the biggest stage and when his team needed him most, he did not produce in a way that was conducive to winning an NBA championship. CP3 is a great player but this top 5 pg of all debate has to be stopped.

    I totally disagree with all you sport anchors. CP3 and the team did their best. It was a blessing to see them make it to the finals. The Bucks has more man power and Giannis is so consistent in every game. I was routing for the Suns. Let's congratulate the Bucks!!!

    Cp3 isn't the reason his team lost the last 2 games he had like 40 some points and 20 assists . It was on Ayton(he's young tho) a little bit. He wasn't scoring enough and defending well. Booker had a bad few games and the backups didn't play good since the second game. For the series cp3 had 20 ppg and 8 assists .

    Pace for Suns was hurried, sloppy at times. “Out of Gas” sign for CP3, & Booker looked uncomfortable, two big giveaways stand out. One was 1/2 point or so, Bucks steal and easy bucket, and the last play for Phoenix in the game. (pass the frigin ball already!). Congrats Bucks, enjoy.

    I think Perkins is a bit miffed about his prediction after Game 4, where he noted, in part: "Fans matter" [so his pick was still the Suns], where he kind of missed that: (1) the Bucks had the better team for starters; and (2) they basically had 2 great kicks at the can to get it done [Games 5 and 7] given not many could see Phoenix winning game 6 in Milwaukee. As someone who is of Greek origin and travels to Greece every summer [not from the U.S. however], I had already planned next trip to go and speak with the shop owner in Sepolia, Athens that had helped out Giannis and his family when the kids were growing up - also as part of an article I want to put together on the now NBA champion "Greek Freak".

Because the coach calls the plays that’s why cp3 doesn’t get the ball as much but if your memory were any good you’d remember both of his hands were injured. So maybe that’s the reason !??! I’d like to see and hear more from that beautiful lady on the show. You guys is ulgy especially Perkins!

    Don't hate on the little man. The Bucks are big and physical. When Jrue Holiday yanked the ball out of Booker's hands said it all. Jrue said in the post game interview he thought Booker was going to shoot, but instead he turned around. That was all he needed. He's the bigger, stronger guy and he already showed he could steal the ball with finesse, but he didn't need to. The Bucks played Bully Ball and it was too much for the little Suns. Even when the Suns were able to hold the lead for most of the game, the big men were too much.

    From what i can see, CP3 needs to create more shots for his team and take easier shot when available, as in don’t force himself to take contested shots. As for booker…. Well, he’s making points and what can we say? But he needs to have more assists than 0. Booker makes points but the rest of his team goes cold cuz he’s playing great hero ball. Hero ball works amazing when you win but, if your not winning then somethings gotta change, right?

    Stephen A keeps hyping Cam Johnson. Lol every player in the NBA can play, If Cam Johnson is that nice, his teammates would know. He might be slightly better than Crowder offensively but might be a liability on defense. He also might not have that Dog in him to demand the ball. Freaking MPJ from Denver knew he was nice and started demanding the ball and he got it
