I hope they have another star in mind because adding Kyrie alone isn't gonna do much

Blame is the wrong word, but Kyrie walked away from a title contender. I wouldn't exactly put it past him even if the Celtics were exactly as good as advertised and someone else got more press than he did.


Sure, but mocking Celtics fans for being confident that Kyrie would stay feels a little over the top given his public statements and his commercial.


I wasn't trying to mock you guys, or defend people who do. I just think Kyrie is living on another planet, and was the most likely guy to pull a Deandre Jordan.


Haha was talking about the OP I quoted, not you

You can't build a franchise on him.

My belief as well. He can also go crazy and outright win you games in the playoffs, which is an invaluable quality. Concise and excellent summation.

Anyone think he goes to LA to join Lebron and AD?

Hard to say when he didn't sign with Klutch as his rep. So that's a good sign for us. Stein is also saying they are going after Kemba. So I'm still confident we'd land him

As per source, looks like Kyrie is backing out of his verbal commitment with the Nets

This would be great news for the nets. Saving them from themselves.

Kyrie is already a Net and imo this AD trade proved it even further. Danny not willing to trade for Davis meant Irving is looong gone and Ainge knows it and might've known it for a while now.
Good assessment:

Sam Amick says despite the Nets noise, Kyrie to the Lakers is in play:

Just days before the Davis deal was done, a source close to James indicated some optimism that – Nets noise be darned – Irving was still in play for the Lakers.

It certainly puts them in a place to get another guy next year, and the year after. With KD talking to them before his injury, it just goes to show the power of a competent team in New York.

Kyrie was going to the Nets anyways. That's in fact the reason Danny didn't trade for Davis. I mean Danny and Wyc spoke to Irving for sure. Can't believe a billionaire in Wyc took the time to attend Kyrie's movie premiere, Danny/Wyc and the C's did everything in their power to keep this guy happy. He's a weird cat tho, so..

I do think its possible that Kyrie changes and goes to the Knicks if Durant goes there.
