Ben Simmons and Dwyane Wade exchanged jerseys for D-Wade's final game in Philly.
3 time NBA Champ trading jersey with (soon to be) 3 time ROTY
Closest Ben Simmons will get to getting a three! 😂😂😂
Who had this game
Everyone always clowning Wade for exchanging Jersey's, but it's his last year. These are pictures he'll be showing his kids and he'll look back at when he's older. Give him a break
This has nothing to do with LeBron or Zion... Take it down!
As a Mavs fan, if D Wade gave me his jersey, signed.....I would cut it up into little squares and use it as toilet paper. Just go away already. #2006Finals #Rigged #WeRemember #Overrated
Come on wade! At least get a Joel Jersey! 😂
Sixers Eastern conference champs....book it
Incoming Simmons ROY comments 3,2,1
Wades like dammm I really wanted butlers jersey!
Simmons can only dunk or lay it up. They wont win a championship because of him
This happens every game... kinda losing it luster
Wade will probably leave that jersey in Philly too.
Dwayne Wade's jersey collection
Dwayne Wade's eBay store is killing it!
I bet dwane wade is tired of exchanging jerseys every game though😂🤣
Wade 4th best SG all time as of today behind Jordan, Kobe and West?
Cue the rookie of the year comments
I miss The rivalries in sports
I don’t care about 2 grown men exchanging wardrobes. I WANT PICTURES OF SPIDER-MAN!!!
His equipment manger is going to have an aneurism
I don't care about D Wade. Where's my pics of J.Jonah Jameson?!
Football players have been doing this since the beginning of time with no coverage but just out of respect for one another. Now NFL and NBA players do it like it’s something new just to get a bit of attention as they pose for their superficial photo
Should have got the stars😂
Simmons is a future star for sure. But would’ve rather seen him trade with JJ
Chad Johnson used his old stats to leave a tip 😂 (via NFL on ESPN)
Honestly, he tipped $209 on a bill that was less than $19. Even if you don't like the guy, even if he did it for publicity, that was an awesome thing for him to do.
Proverbs 11:25 - A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed
Big deal. Zion gained 209 lbs last night.
I had 0 yards in 2007, hmm I think I can work with this idea for tipping🤔
The waitress be like....
How can anyone be trash talking this?!?! 🤷🏼♂️
Thank you ESPN for trying to make a joke out of this and surpress the fact 85 was trying to spread Gods teaching. Guess he didnt make the Proverbs 11:25 large enough. Bravo Chad Johnson for choosing to stand with God and be judge by the people rather than standing with the people and be judged by God.
Should've been real generous and multiplied it by his ring total
My credit score was 209 in 2009!
He did not need to reference his own accomplishment on the bill. Professional athletes. Always thinking of themselves.
Chad is a highly recommend Twitter follow
Wow, that's like an 85% tip. Kudos
I leave Kaepernick tips all the time......"I was watching a game where this QB threw 4 yards before getting benched in the 3rd quarter"....$4
I once sneeze so hard I popped a blood vessel in my eye and crapped myself. What should I leave for a tip?
Chad Johnson tipped me $50 once for pulling his car up 13 feet. He proceeded to ask the dumbest question a human being has ever asked me.....but I certainly appreciated his generosity!
There’s nothing wrong with showing others the good you do. It is not unbiblical at all. In fact, Scripture tells us to, “Let our light shine before men so that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
Hopefully seeing something like this helps motivate others to do good! A “generosity” butterfly effect if you will...
“Do good acts unto others and post a pic on social media to show others your charity”
That's nothing, the other night I went to Red Robin's. When my girl left a tip I grabbed all of it and left $1
Credit, where it's due. That server had a great night!
That's all I ask of people with plenty of money.
Give back a little to your community!
I don't care how much Chad Johnson tipped, I want Pictures Of Spider-Man!
Hey everybody. Look at me over here being humble!
Anyone know the first 12 numbers?
I mean he does this all the time I follow him on twitter idk why this is news now
Chad Johnson is always giving to people. He didn't do it for publicity.
LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers are on the outside looking in right now.
You actually put Zion in this...
The last time ESPN didn’t mention Lebron in one day, the first Bush was president, MTV was still making music videos, and we had two genders.
OMG, Brady, Lebron, and Zion in one post...priceless.
“Delonte West hadn’t slept with his mother yet...”
The perfect 3 way couple Zion Lebron and espn.
Found a way to put Zion and LeBron together. It's a stretch but impressive
The Last Time Tim Duncan and Manu didn’t make the playoffs is when they both retired
What did Lebron eat for lunch? What color shirt did Zion wear to class today ESPN? Tell us more.
Robert Horry is better than Lebron. Put some respek on his name ESPN!!
One of the reason why LeBron James is the GOAT! You old heads got to stop being nostalgic and finally ADMIT that LeBron James is the GREATEST BASKETBALL PLAYER EVER!
I miss the SuperSonics.....
Zion and LeBron in one post it must be a dream come true for espn
Zion Lebron AND Brady LOL who had to clean their pants at ESPN
People say that they gotta throw Zion in as a joke but it’s to the point where it seems like they really gotta throw Zion in every post...
Welcome to the western conference bron it’s not a cake walk anymore
Screenshot this. When the Lakers DON'T make the playoffs. The NBA will change the seeding to 1-16 with top 16 teams instead of top 8 from each conference for the next season.
Lebron = Cleveland -> Miami -> Cleveland -> Lakers. 3 rings.
Jordan = 6 rings with Bulls. Wizards ahhh doesnt count. Goat #1
Kobe = 5 rings with Lakers. GOAT #3
Duncan = 5 rings with Spurs. GOAT #2
Robert Horry = Better than Lebron. 7 rings!!! 3 teams!! 😂😂😂
Robert Horry has a better career than Lebron, wheres his post.
Hey ESPN, could you say that again? I couldn't hear you cause of all that LeBron & Zion meat slammed in your throat...
You know espn, Their are more teams in the nba other than the lakers
The Seattle Supersonics still do exist....as the OKC Thunder. Just because they moved, doesn't mean the franchise history didn't move with it.
Of course they had to throw Zion into this
Yet Lebron will get more coverage then either team that makes it to the playoffs and NBA finals.
That’s crazy. Last time Lebron missed the playoffs Brady was already a Hall of Famer 💪🏽
Tristan Thompson hadn’t cheated on Khloe Kardashian
DeMarcus Cousins gives his take on Zion's situation
If Zion and Lebron had a baby it would be ESPN
Do what's best and continue playing ball. And actually graduating instead of being 1 and done
People who say universities are taking advantage of these players have never experienced a true sports-oriented college atmosphere. You cannot put a price tag on being able to step on the court in front of the Cameron Crazies playing the Tarheels on National TV. Or touching the banner at the Big House in Ann Arbor in front of 110,000 fans. It is moments like these that athletes live for and will remember forever. Money comes and goes, but memories last a lifetime. Don’t mind me though...
He can go back to school anytime he wants. A lot of players go back and finish their degrees. Why not take the money and run?
Here is the deal; it was a non-contact injury. The same type of injury that can take place during a lifting session or any random day at the gym doing drills. Even if he sits, it's not like he is going to stop playing ball and live a in a bubble until draft day. He is probably going to continue to grind just as hard, which as we all know, still allows for a decent chance of an injury.
For him, I would imagine it's hard not to sit, but he needs to gauge the situation with realistic expectations. You can't play scared and you can't train scared.
Stuff happens either way.
Why do college athletes need to get paid? They already get special treatment on campus, free food, clothes, ect.. They get to stay in nice hotels all over the country and if they get drafted into the NBA they make millions. Being a college athlete is already a great thing.
NBA PLAYERS, Cousins included, collectively bargained to keep players out of the NBA until one year removed from their HS graduating class.... So players like Cousins can make more money instead of young players. But okay...
Perhaps Cousins should learn the NCAA doesn't keep Zion and others from playing right away. Sure, they benefit from it but is the NBA Collective Bragaining agreement that keeps them out. The NBA wanted them in college for at least one year so they could better evaluate the talent and assume less risk. The NCAA can be blamed for college players getting nothing financially when they and the schools make millions off their backs. But the NBA is to blame about one-and-done. It's a NBA rule, not a NCAA rule.
WOULDN’T THAT BE STAYING IN SCHOOL AND GRADUATING WITH A DEGREE?
DeMarcus cousins: "fake your injury so you can be drafted by the warriors so I can win more rings"
Final Fours and NCAA championships can't pay any bills. 😂😂😂
Since when is a sprained knee career ending?? All this negative hype is crazy confusing.
Good day for espn, a lot of content about Zion to report.
So he means join the warriors this offseason
time to make g-league an entry lvl nba league that focus' on recruiting from High School. Recruit a 17/18 yr old...(or draft...not nba full draft) they STAY for 2 seasons getting paid...if they make it then they goto the big dance. Better than ncaa rules. And for those fringe players...they showcase for a payday even if they dont make it
DeMarcus Cousins- Knowing what I know now...join the warriors.
DeMarcus Cousins is the biggest tool in the league
Dont take advice from snakes. As per Adam and eve.
Yea take advice from Demarcus cousins. He seems like a all heart not all for himself type of guy lol.
Just shows you how stupid Cousins is that he blame college for Zion not being in the NBA, It's the NBAs rule youtwit
He has a chance to go pro, g league, Europe. The union that represents the nba players is the ones that agree to the rules.
I wonder if Vegas has betting odds on advice given by DeMarcus Cousins?
He should be there for an education. Basketball is secondary
Really insightful advice Boogie. Great stuff 👍🤦♂️
Were starting to figure it out, you dont need to go to college to be successful at anything
Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim was behind the wheel of a car that hit and killed a pedestrian, police said Thursday.
Once again terrible headline.
Driving proper speed. Was not impaired. Swerved to avoid a vehicle that crashed and was in the middle of the road. Hit the passenger of that vehicle because he had exited and was in the road. Sad tragic accident.
Espn your caption and headline is garbage.
Such a terrible headline. you should be ashamed
Wow ESPN! Making things seem intentional! YOU SUCK!
"Espn, CNN's sister station." #FakeNews
Once again- manipulation by media. Write a proper headline, please. Prayers for all involved and their families.
Terrible headline...it was an accident...690 at night, in bad weather, is bad all by itself...add stopped vehicles and people walking around you’re just asking for something bad to happen...my condolences go out to both families
Wow this headline is misleading, looks horribly unprofessional
God rest this man’s soul but he was not a pedestrian he was in the middle of the highway after an accident so unfortunately he would be considered a road hazard other than a pedestrian
Looks to be a tragic accident.
*hit and killed a motorist who had exited his vehicle. Fixed it.
Tragic loss of life. Bad ordeal for all that were involved. What's truly sad is the joking around and total indifference to the loss of life.
Bet he gets to keep coaching while it's being "investigated" to see if the pedestrian smoked weed last week.
Nice NBCish headline there....
Y’all all worked up about Trump, while this Orangeman is literally killing people
Could you please research and report every dammed person that was hit on a freeway last week? Not a Syracuse fan but this has no business as a headline unless you want to report all. Wonder why no one wants to talk to the media. Tragic for him and the victim, he will have to live with it longer as it is without you idiots posting.
People think it’s misleading? This is the most intentionally un-accusatory article of all time. “Was driving a car that hit a pedestrian” “the car tried to avoid” they literally write it as if Lightning Mcqueen we’re responsible. They are protecting him like crazy.
Headlines should read, "Boeheim involved in fatal car accident." Or, something along those lines. Doesn't seem as though he did anyting wrong - but just a freak accident. Whether he coaches the next game or rest of the season is irrelevant. This will be tough to get over if ever. As for the man who died - God rest his soul.
ESPN makes it sound like he ran the guy down or might have been drunk. This could have happened to anyone in that situation at that moment.
How does social media make an accident look like someone is guilty!
Not sure he was in his right mind last night, did you see him empty the bench and put in all the scrubs last night? Boeheim would never, he must have been ill
boy this headline sure slants towards some sensational story thats ENTIRELY different than what actually happened.
Prayers for the victim's family. Roads up there are hell this time of year. Not gonna make Boeheim out to be a criminal unless evidence says so
Condolences to the man's family and friends. This is so sad. :(
I seriously enjoy watching him play. Come to the hornets????? Lol
ESPN acting like he’s a rookie....COVER TEAMS NOT IN NEW YORK OR LA!!!!!!
This must be a mistake.. This story isn't about Lebron or Zion. ESPN??
So Nike and espn going out of business with no Zion? 🤔🤔
Should get a 20 on ACT just for spelling his name
No please not Rachel
If he ever developes a concistent 3pt shot (around sometime next year) he is the only player ever born to challenge MJ's career and impact...You can keep your LeBron's and your Steph's and all the hype-machine that has generated them...I take Giannis every day of the week in an all-time universal fantasy draft.... Ultimate building block... The genuine "unicorn"....
A true leader for the NBA...
Watch the video
Derek Dave think Giannis brought a fridge with?
Respect to mommy and father raising and birthing a future hall of famer
As the second half begins, who's your current pick? 🧐
2. Nikola Jokic.
3. Paul George.
It’s a travesty that espn and the media haven’t talked about Jokic in the mvp race. His team is 2nd in the west. He’s averaging 21 10 and 8.
Giannis is the MVP. Best player on the best team in the league. Does everything well on both sides of the court. Give it to the freak.
PG-13 been balling out and doesn’t collect traveling miles points every time he plays.
Somebody at ESPN is getting fired they didn’t put Lebron up there.
Giannis. And it's not even close.
The guy with 2 first names
Calling it now, Lebron gets the Lakers back top a top 4 seed and wins his 5th MVP.
The Greek Freak or PG13 ❤️❤️❤️ Just not Harden loool 😂
Greek Freak!! Best player on the best team in the league!
Harden is RUNNING away with it...
Don't let anyone tell you that Giannis isn't the MVP so far this season. Statistically, this should be the easiest MVP race of the last 25 years. Theres also a very strong case to be made that he's the league's best defensive player as well.
Credit to JustinC from RealGM Milwaukee for the stats.
Only 1 player in the past 37 years has won the MVP with a winning % below .650.
Only 2 players in the past 37 years have won the MVP with a winning % below .680.
40 of the past 64 MVPs had the leagues best record. Giannis fits this criteria as the Bucks have the best record in the NBA.
Let's look at Positive and Negative Possessions.
We will call a positive possession any possession that ends in the player:
-Making a shot
-Getting an assist
-Drawing a foul
We will call a Negative Possession any possession that ends in:
-Missing a shot

Harden easy money.
Embid is in the conversation
That Bucks uniform is 🔥x34
I don’t see LeBron anywhere...
Paul George, unlike KD the snake, he can play wit Westbrook
“I think PG is the best two way player in the league and well deserving of the MVP.” - Colin Cowherd
Give it to Giannis, harden never goes anywhere. The Bucks atop the east when they've basically been the Browns of the NBA is pretty impressive
Giannis is my MVP. Best all round player
Greek freak! Give it up to a small market team!
They need to give this out right after the regular season, because we know these guys have a habit of disappearing come playoff time.
IDK but I got Ben Simmons as my ROTY
How racist, not 1 white guy. Smh 🤣
Considering Paul George has out played every MVP candidate he's played against..MVPG
