Dinwiddie, Allen, LaVert, great chemistry, tons of draft picks all gone... for nothing. Just when the Nets dug themselves out of the abysmal Deron Williams, KG, Paul Pierce, Joe Johnson debt that flatlined the franchise for years.. now this. Incredible.

@Brandon Thomas if they make that trade that means the Nets, who don’t own their own 1st round pick until *2028*, are left with Ben Simmons and DeAndre Ayton and whatever picks Kyrie fetches as their best players/assets moving forward. That looks like screwed to me unless being stuck in the play-in for a decade is fine

Well, the thing is KD by himself isn't a headache. Just look at how well the warriors functioned with KD. Kyrie I think just makes the toxicity level in a franchise skyrocket through the roof. Look at his time in boston before, during and after he left. KD seems more like a person who gets caught up in the ebbs and flows of the people around him. KD is just a chill dude who taught he could be the leader of a team when he clearly can't off the floor.

Yeah, this is crazy. You rarely see players of Kd's caliber asking for trades. Typically, if you're as great as Kd, you stick around and use your greatness to make things right. I think part of this is because he feels as if the nets haven't been treating kyrie well

I think it makes sense for KD to go to Miami. I think Pat Riley can pull it off! I believe he wants to stay in the East! He really needs a championship win against the Warriors right now. The Warriors have proven that they can win with or without Durant! (TWO) with….(TWO) without!!!!

Durant saw GS win and wants out. He might as well go to the Knicks, as we know he is NOT going to Philly with Harden.
Hard Cold
Hard Cold 2 months ago
@THE BEAR JEW Scoring is one thing, but Harden does not help a team at all. Iverson, Harden, Anthony and Westbrook are examples of great individual players who made sure to make a name for themselves, get paid and get into the hall - but only used teams to make themselves look great, but could not work with a team to make the teams great. Dwayne Wade was a player of their type, BUT he worked within the TEAM concept to help his teams win - before James joined! His politics are another issues though...
THE BEAR JEW 2 months ago
@Hard Cold he’s still able to average 18 ppg and be a playmaker.

@JC Cic because it is not his decision where he goes. Believe it or not, he does not have to agree to a trade they can just trade him. Knicks is the crosstown rivals so it's not likely.
HartHeimer 2 months ago
So it doesn't work like just because he thinks they treated Kyrie badly that he must leave. They have the right to keep him there and make him miserable I would do it. Bottom line is he loves basketball so much that he could not sit out or tank for 4 years. He could also be sued for breach of contract.

White Whale

@Coach yvantE Stop accusing me of YOUR actions. You're the one who's initial post is crying and finger pointing. 😅😅 The only way KD wins another chip is rejoining the team that got him 2. Of course you, as I said you would, gave him 100% credit for those 2. Cos his fans are like him. 0 blame, 100% credit. History will vindicate me, and you'll be left making excuses, pointing fingers, and crying about how unfair it is. Let's be clear. I criticized KD, and you continue throwing a tantrum and projecting your hypersensitivity onto me. I'm laughing about an easily predictable outcome, you're big mad. 😅😅😅 Accusing someone else of crying while you wipe tears from your face isnt fooling anyone.

I’m losing a lot of respect 4 KD. They signed kyrie and that washed up center 4 him. Gave him the coach he wanted (Nash). Traded away harden 4 him. With the worst playoff performance he’s ever had against Boston, I would think he will be motivated to get busy. He just wants easy rings.He’s not a leader. Just a follower.

They signed KD and Kyrie together. Not one for the other. It was Kyrie that said they don't even need a coach. KD didn't request Nash. That's bs. Also, they didn't trade Harden away for KD. That's totally made up. Harden was reported to want a trade because Kyrie wasn't living up to his end. It had nothing to do with what KD wanted. His worst playoff performance was still excellent. And I don't think the first round exit has anything to do with him requesting this trade. Your narratives are lies so it becomes impossible to respect your conclusion. My guess is that he knew if Kyrie stays, he was leaving. It wasn't working with Kyrie. If Kyrie left, he was likely to stay. Once Kyrie opted in with the intention to stay and play, KD is out.

@AbsyntheM1nded plays yea kyrie barely played with KD dont even mention him lol. Yes Lebron destroyed the east. Wade had a ring already when he teamed up with Lebron. dont forget about Ray allen and their bench. NBA is a team sport and the most stacked teams always go to finals.
AbsyntheM1nded plays
@Franky Ng wade was way past his prime when he had a little vacay with the cavs. As for saying bron had kyrie, sure did. Last time i checked so did durant. So bron + kyrie = 4 final appearances. durant + Kyrie = 0 final appearances. Hence, lebron destroyed the east

Patti Mills was the first sign of the dismantling… Deandre Ayton trading to without input from kd… 2 high level players with either a warped selfish character and or drama baggage… Not a full blown kd fan but I agree with this… He’s an elite player that has a solid character foundation and all he wants to do is play and win… He’s a great scorer… Prolly better than k mid and would put Milwaukee in in the finals for sure… Even if they have to give up a couple of elites… Hopefully not jrue or Brook

It would be Lowry, Herro, Robinson, and 3 firsts for KD and Curry to make the money work.

Ben Simmons is the reason he is leaving imo, I can imagine KD absolutely despising a dude like that

Really? What’s the difference between him and Kyrie? Both want to sit out and get paid anyway. Heck KD’s probably just jealous that he didn’t think of that 😂

Just like when the Thunder was beat he ran to the Warriors. He is not a superstar he is a good player but no leader and not dynamic. We’ve seen his peak, thank you Steph for carrying him to 2 titles, and now for the reality, he can’t do it alone, or even with help from the flat earther. He couldn’t lead a time to a 4 a state title in high school.

What the NETS owners created with their superstar acquisitions and making them entitled to big money power….was an absolute bust and a huge cancer for the rest of the league…. When did players get the right to break their contracts?

Rich Nets are not sending KD to the heat until they get 6 first round picks plus 3 young players same with Suns and 76ers have no chance like the lakers.... It is either going to be Magic, OKC, Memphis or Minnesota or Rockets.... Kd has 4 year contract and he will only be sent to team that can give uo a kings ransom.... Otherwise he is staying put.
