First Take 4/14/17

Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman share their thoughts on what could impede the Warriors’ chances of capturing a second NBA title in three seasons.

Max Kellerman and Stephen A. Smith agree while they believe LeBron James is very confident in himself to step up his game in the postseason, his sentiments are not the same when thinking about his teammates.

Stephen A. Smith looks back on the life of former Steelers president Dan Rooney and his life-long influence on the game of football.

Stephen A. Smith thinks the Bulls have a good chance to upset the Celtics in the first round, even though he ultimately believes Boston will win the series in seven games.

Max Kellerman explains how the accusation of Eli Manning committing fraud in court documents for an alleged memorabilia scam could tarnish the New York Giants’ reputation.

Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman quickly give their thoughts on the Hawks-Wizards and Grizzlies-Spurs playoff matchups, Dirk Nowitzki announcing he’s returning for a 20th season and Aaron Rodgers “going Hollywood.”

Stephen A. Smith expects to see Russell Westbrook prove himself against a tough Houston Rockets team.

Will Cain and Stephen A. Smith believe that the Clippers should cut ties with Blake Griffin if they are unable to win an NBA title this season.

Max Kellerman expects the Memphis Grizzlies to give the Golden State Warriors problems if they make is past the San Antonio Spurs.

Stephen A. Smith laments the dwindling number of African Americans in Major League Baseball since the days of Jackie Robinson.

Max Kellerman and Stephen A. Smith weigh in on if Patriots coach Bill Belichick would rather have Aaron Rodgers as his quarterback over Tom Brady.

Just talking sports….
