Cavs win this trade. They just got Jarrett Allen for Exum, the Bucks first, and a future 2nd..... Ummm, huh? Feels like they were the Suns in that Eric Bledsoe deal

Cavs won that trade.

Allen, Prince for Exum and Late First! Good for them.

Yeah I don't understand the Levert-Dipo trade. I would've much preferred Levert over Dipo. Great trade for Indy though, they get a guy who's as versatile if not more, he's bigger, can fit on a team with other offensive threats and there were already rumbles in the offseason about Dipo wanting out.

I don't hate many players but if Kyrie screws things up for my boy Nash, he's going right on top of my sht list :nonono:

My guess is that he isn't too happy about the Harden trade either. They don't seem like they would mesh that well. They are somewhat similar players...like to dribble and iso.

I don't say this lightly, and I know Bipolar well, but I wouldn't be surprised if Kyrie is bipolar...and he is in a severe manic state:

A manic episode is characterized by a sustained period of abnormally elevated or irritable mood, intense energy, racing thoughts, and other extreme and exaggerated behaviors.


It can also encompass delusions of grandeur.

When is Kyrie ever happy? Things seems to be good early on in Boston when he had that fresh start but things turned fairly quickly. I didn't get the impression he was real happy when Lebron came back to Cleveland because he was going to play second fiddle.

The guy seems to have a lot of personal issues/insecurities about where his place is in the world. He wants to be #1 on the court but at the same time, there are things off the court (people's perception of him, injustice in the world, conspiracies etc etc) which make basketball seem so small and irrelevant to him.

Only thing i like about Kyrie is his shoes. In the process of securing a Kyrie 6 size 13 in the Vast Grey/Animal Print colorway.

Look, word is that Brooklyn was trying to get Houston to take Kyrie in trade for Harden, but they wouldnt. While he plays great (When he actually plays), he is a headcase both on and off the court. The fact that there is still no info on his self imposed removal from the team is scary, and teams arnt willing to risk anything of value on a player like that. Brooklyn will try to move him and soon, but the question is where. Who will take him and what do they have to offer for an all-star PG.

Seems the Nets are the home for cancerous star players of the league.

Do you guys think Kyrie will ever wear a Nets uniform again or will they trade him?

I refuse to believe this. This is the same guy that was praising Nash after his 1st win and also gave him the game ball. He acts as if him and K.D are besties. If this is true Kyrie is the biggest skunk in the history of sport. :noway: I feel sorry for my best PG to ever play the game (Nash) to have to endure this bull, having already being under pressure to win it all and now having to deal with Harden :banghead:

What are the Cavs going to do with Kevin Love? I assume they'll try and trade em or let his contract run out in 2023. The Rockets should have held out for Ben Simmons.

Nah, they should have kept LeVert/Allen/Prince and the picks.

You cant win with Simmons. The league has evolved to a point where you cant have your PG not being a scoring threat, and the kid can not shoot the ball. I dont understand why, i mean even Lonzo learned this and worked on his shot enough to where he can still remain relevant. Irving gets paid $35M and he averages 12 points with all his buckets coming from being in the paint. Players dont even need to guard him outside the paint because all he is going to do is pass the ball anyway. You just cant win like that. The guy with the ball in his hands for 90% of the plays has to be able to score from anywhere on the floor. He's extremely lucky he plays in the East, i mean the Sixers only have 2 losses this season, but thats more to do with their opponents (WASx2/CHAx2/ORL/CLE/NYK/TOR/BKN/MIA).

Rockets have Wall and he has played great. When Harden came back, Wall took a major hit. If he had LeVert next to him, that would have be PHENOMINAL for both of them. It will be interesting to see what Oladipo can do next to him, but Simmons would have been a horrible fit.

Like that it strengthens the Eastern Conference.

Any team in the West with a win now strategy should be able to make the play-in at minimum.
