    I love siakam and how he plays. But honestly tho Siakam and KD are surely batteling it out for the ugliest player in the nba. If you guys call it hate its hate. But i just had to say it.

  13. U K

    U KPřed 23 dny

    @Jo Claudio i agree with you. But hes also ugly 🙈

    If it wasnt for the refs he should be around 27ppg.. he is taking 4.5 free throws per game. He is in last place among top 20 scorers in nba. He attacks every time and goes to line 4 times, needs more respects from refs..
