Max Kellerman Shares More Deranged Thoughts on Kobe Bryant
At this point, it's been made painfully clear that ESPN's First Take is a complete farce and should be treated as such.
However, a milestone of sorts was achieved recently when one of the participants was driven to madness by a particularly nonsensical take.
This is significant because the alleged talent is supposedly in on the joke, but host Molly Qerim appears to have some standards.
Well, NBA.com just released their All-Decade teams, which provides endless fodder for these buffoons to gnaw on.
Of course, when the subject of Kobe was broached, Mad Max perked right up.
Brace yourself for a uniquely bad take:
Now it's silly to even acknowledge this nonsense, but we'll point out that Kobe averaged almost 25 points per game from 2010-2016 and made every single All-Star team during that timeframe.
But Max has placed him on the fictional All-NBA worst team anyway.
Because of the contrived nature of this program, it's entirely possible that Qerim staged that walkoff, and it does seem like she knew that response was coming.
However, there's enough cynicism in the world already, so we're going to give her the benefit of the doubt.
Obviously, the Twitter was eager to take a few whacks at the Max-shaped piñata.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
