Yes seriously.  I wouldn’t want him anywhere near my team for free, never mind at a max contract.  He’s a disease, and I worry that it might be contagious.

No, not about that. Fuck Kyrie. We’ve been on this goddamn board for how long and you don’t know what goddamn team I follow? DON’T YOU KNOW WHO I AM?!?!

Bringing it back to KD, anyone listen to the ETCs last week? He didn't sound like a guy who was trying to orchestrate anything. Pretty solid code among most of the guys to not F with another man's livelihood. He sounded like a guy whose camp was sitting it out until Kyrie sorted his situation out with the team.

That Kyrie/KD relationship is all over the place.  I don't think they're BFFs anymore.

He’ll probably end up in Miami for anybody not named Jimmy or Ben.

This league is so dumb. Play out the duration of the contract you signed. Fuck it. No more multi year deals if players just ask for trades a year ahead of their FA year because they’re afraid of losing out on 120 million if they don’t sign that 4/160 mill deal now

Kyrie has a Player Option this year, which he needs to sign or expire very soon. If the Nets want anything for him, they need him to find a S&T situation to make it happen. He can walk for nothing and sign whereever he wants next week, so he's not really skipping out on his contract. Player Options give players power, and in this case, Kyrie holds the cards.

1. Let Kyrie walk
2. Trade KD to OKC for 6-7 picks (OKC has the cap to just take him)
3. Trade Simmons to Sac for Mitchell and a few picks.
4. Cap is cleared. Picks recovered.
5. Profit?

KD, SGA, Chet.  I think that's a playoff team but not sure a contender.  I don't see KD ever returning there though.

This would be insane for Kyrie, but I think the Lakers will want to use the KI situation as leverage to dump Westbrook's contract. Supposedly Charlotte is interested in Russ, and if they can work a 3 team deal, you could see the Lakers become a Top 3 in the West team overnight.

I would pay money to see Kyrie try to assimilate into Heat Culture. Who kills him first, Jimmy or UD?

If I were an NBA owner, I would trade my whole team for Jimmy Butler and just bitch with him about how everyone else in the league is a lazy bum or a soft pussy.  I would finish last every year, but at least I wouldn’t have to humor the flat earth guy who takes 2 years off and then forces a trade.

LMAO does he want NIL money from the media?  We’re like six months away from Kyrie going full sovereign citizen and claiming the NBA doesn’t have the jurisdiction to withhold taxes from him or  call fouls on him.

i don't know how that works with trae and murray both in the backcourt but if you can do that deal without losing collins you do it and figure out the touches later.

The Warriors' impending summer long victory lap over any and everyone who doubted them shows how petty pro athletes are and that they hear absolutely everything.....but how the fuck do people still care what Skip Bayless says about literally anything?

The speculation that he would opt out and sign a MLE deal with the Lakers were fucking foolish.   He's crazy but he aint THAT crazy.   He would give up 30M immediately and probably another 100M by losing his Bird Rights when its time to resign.

True.  But kyrie crazy.  He passed up what 15 million because he wouldn’t get vaccinated.

Even more reason why he's not giving up 30M more and a potential 100M more on top of that.

I don't believe the Nets docked his pay at all this season. Ben Simmons lost money with the 76ers for willingly sitting out games though.

What's the rule on sign and trade for Kyrie next year. Can the Nets give him the extra year and extra money then trade him immediately? Maybe they have a gentleman's agreement that is they win it all they sign him to the max and run it back. If they fall short like this year they will max him and trade him to a preferred team who may be more open to taking him on after a full year of playing without drama.

 

I know.

They don't sign Kyrie without him recruiting KI

Missed this the first time through. This is chronologically inaccurate. Kyrie was going to Brooklyn with or without KD. He was out the door in Boston and making plans in Brooklyn by the All-Star game. If anything, KD tagged along on Kyrie's decision.

I wouldn’t be surprised at all for John Wall to have a career resurrection year with the Clippers. He is only 31 and has had several years to recover from his injuries. He will fit in well there. If Kawhi and PG13 are healthy, that will take all the pressure off of him.  He isn’t worth $40M, but he can definitely add value to that squad IMO.  He is better than Reggie Jackson in almost every way.
