I still think Boston has a better supporting cast than the Nets, maybe they've given him word of someone else coming?

Kawhi or KD?

I’d be pissed if I was Russell. Unless Kyrie is bringing a star or two with him, Kyrie is gonna blame the **** out of Russell or others when things go bad. I’d do the Blake Griffin move on Kyrie if the nets don’t land any star with Kyrie and get some free assets out of him if things head south in the middle of the season.

I’m enjoying this. Genuinely believe the Celtics and Nets get worse because of this.

Celtics because they likely won’t get AD (and definitely won’t keep)

And Nets because Kyrie = PG meloooo

How is that bullying?

He is exercising his rights as a player.

Wonder what Boston's plan is now. I would just rebuild around Brown/Tatum. Trade Horford and Hayward.

Its his life choice but on paper they dont look great at all. DLo and Sean Marks built that house now watch Kyrie come tear it down.


Yeah, it's the Nets I don't really understand this for, my only guess is that maybe they have a good idea that they'll be getting another player too, like maybe KD.

At the end of the day, you need talent to win in this league and Irving is one of the better players in the league and an improvement from DLo - even if he is a headcase.
The only viable way to make a Kyrie max slot worth it is to pair him with either KD or Kawhi, and neither of those things would happen in BKN imo

How is going to an average Brooklyn team doing anything for his career the Celtics can't?

Well despite that seemingly lopsided trade the nets are far ahead of the Celtics now.

Sucks to Celtics a losing him I can't say I'm going to miss his moodiness and how he's constantly never happy wherever he plays.

But congratulations to the nets.

I mean this is close to 100% Kyrie to the Nets right? It's either that or FlatEarth man is throwing us all for a crazy loop

Yeah, DLO is gone. They're probably going after Butler. DLo to the Knicks.

Players choose different teams for various reasons. There is no right or wrong approach, it's just a personal preference.

Not saying it's a done deal, but I'm sure that he has a legitimate reason for me to choose a team, at least according to him.
Why so serious?
