Max Kellerman is leaving Stephen A Smith and ESPN’s First Take, and NBA Twitter can’t stop reacting to it


Man, someone get us some tissues because these tears won’t stop. Max Kellerman is really leaving Stephen A Smith and the crew at First Take.

You are watching: Stephen a smith lamar odom

You know what we will miss? We will miss those screaming debates between the two. We will miss Smith calling his partner in crime… sorry we meant FORMER (wipes away a tear) partner in crime a blasphemous individual for a take that’s slightly off. But, most of all, we’ll miss those rare moments the two agreed with each other. That wholesome vibe, the look of relief on Molly’s face. The tears may or may not have started all over again.

Jokes aside though, this was a good run. As much as we may not agree with their takes at times, Stephen A Smith and Max Kellerman were an entertaining duo to watch. And it seems that NBA Twitter not only agrees with, but is also paying the man a worthy tribute, the only way it can.

Let’s get into it.
