  • this aint working with the way the rockets play

  • i 100% agree with cain here

  • This teams next years hopes ride on pretty much two things, their defense and Chris Pauls hamstrings. If any of those go out, then they're not gonna get past Golden State.

  • interesting…i still dont see why they would go for Chris Paul when Harden came off career best form playing as a PG. Plus he'll be back in the same position as he was in OKC this time he wont be the 3rd guy
    PG: Chris Paul
    SG: James Harden
    SF: Trevor Ariza
    PF: Ryan Anderson
    C: Clint Capela
    A super-team to compete with the Warriors! Best backcourt in basketball

  • Is the white guy just on the show to suck off the warriors

  • will they both have synergy together is the question

  • This retard didnt even watch james harden last season he is playing average defense

  • I understand that these guys talk about every sport and they can't have a perfect IQ in everything but Will Cain is dumb I don't think he has watched these clippers team from the past few years and how Paul was able to play with other ballhandlers.

  • Will Cain > Kellerman and Stephen A.

    Stephen A. is loud and annoying.

  • And replace Molly too!

  • Rockets and pelicans should combine into a superteam

  • I do not appreciate the existence of Will Cain.

  • who handle the ball

  • Hi First Take. I have Been watching for years now. Will needs to go. Couldn't even listen to him. Sally is GREAT!! Excellent reserve pick up!!! But Will is slightly obnoxious and has no background history to base debate from. I'd love to see a debate between Sally and Max!!! That is something I would watch, not this…#Next

  • bad move for clippers cp3 wobt even get to a conference final

  • My Spurs will still shit down the Rockets mouths.

  • Chris is going to regret leaving LA for H-Town. He is going to miss the weather and his celebrity friends. He single-handedly destroyed any possibility of a Banana Boat Crew Reunion in SoCal over a 5th year / $45M that wasn't offered to him.

    At least Chris should thank ClipperNation and the SoCal community for our support with a letter or message like Jimmy did for Chicago. I will laugh if the Clippers win a title before he does. He walked away from the richest and most generous owner and greatest exec ever over money. The nepotism comes second..

    Watch when Houston is stuck with that albatross contract. Throughout the history of the NBA, no point guard at over 35 has ever received that amount. He wants to play for a contender but his contract will suffocate their cap space.

    You are going to miss LA, Chris. Bad move by you. Should have opted in and waited another year on what LeBron might do. Everybody Hates Chris… ⛵

  • you can stagger their minutes so it's always one of them on the floor orchestrating the offense…they'll start and end games together but having one of the two out their most of the game is a great look for the Rockets…This is a WCF's team.

  • oh and now they are the best backcourt in the NBA.


  • Defense doesn't win championships.
    Because whenever it does, they change the rules, because fuck defense.

  • Will is fucking stupid I fucking hate when they have him on the show he never know wtf he be talking about 💯

  • Bulls and Rockets my fave teams

  • If Chris Paul has the mentality that Will Cain described then he would have been perfect for the Kobe and the Lakers and they would have won another chip. Fucking David Stern.

  • What's the name of this gal host? She is another one, new. Last one was Jen Lada. Who dis?

  • will cain is right this shit is about to go south. cp will be ON HARDEN'S ASS for clubbing every other night and being out of shape.

  • this Adrian clown doesn't know a thing he's talking about

  • Stephen A in vacation like Phil Jackson is gone from the Knicks 🤣

  • So Manu Ginobili didn't show on dun dun dun, dun dun dun after that block on Harden? That was a hell of a defensive play.

  • look at klay and Steph. one plays defense one doesn't and it still works yeah klay has a more complacent personality but maybe chris needs to change instead of James in order to win a ring

  • wow the chick is hot, would like to smash her ass

  • nigga cain a bum

  • will cain is am arrogant ashole who thinks he is smarter than everybody.dickhead
