Well when Irving leaves for the nets and with AD off the market don't see how that is a better situation for him.

The idea of burning a jersey has always seemed dumb, but I won't lie - if that dude signs with the Lakers to form a superteam......

Hated the trade when it happened.

Hated the player the entire time he was here.

All started with that douchebag no-show at Game 7 of the ECF because of his “nose surgery”.

Add this entire year and it’s made me hate this little frontrunner more than any player that has ever put on the green.

Now he's gone for sure, btw. Ainge knows it, that's why he didn't trade Tatum and 3-4 picks like LAL did.
Good assessment:

PLO wrote:Tatum played OK - took advantage of a few mismatches - decent on the defensive end. He is what we thought he was going into the season - a technically very proficient player operating close to his career ceiling as a rookie.

Sure, Irving was a bit of a headcase but he’s still a top 20 player in the NBA and talent wins championships! The amount of people who want to see this dude go for nothing is crazy.

Can you be a top-20 player if you need a real alpha top-10 on your team to keep you from sabotaging your team with bad vibes?

You guys are better without Kyrie and his drama. I hate how the players are messing up the teams with the amount of power they have. NBA should penalize players who are under contract but wants to play for other teams. Its just unfair IMO

Will be a major relief when he's gone. No more morale killing for the young guys.

I thought I wanted him to resign, but surprisingly I relieved his gone. He's really that annoying.

Makes a lot of sense. He could be the temperamental, little #3 like Ray Allen was to AD as KG and LBJ as PP.

He wants to play with Anthony Davis just not in Boston.
