Suns trading Booker, Bridges and Ayton for Durant would be the worst move possibly in NBA History. It would destroy their franchise for a decade and then Durant will ask out in a year or two anyway.

Your worries (yes, anxiety), depression, suicidal thoughts, EVERYTHING will melt away and be NO MORE when you lean on God and put your trust in him!! When I have physical pain, I literally pray and the Lord quells it, that I am healed!! Know that there is power in the name Jesus Christ! His name casts out demons and heals! People are bothered by his name. The world hates the truth and wants to continue living sinfully! God's children are set apart (holy) and righteous.

Hey! Did you know God is three in one!? The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit! Bless him! Jesus died for our sins, rose from the dead, and gives salvation to everyone who has faith in him! True faith in Jesus will have you bear good fruit and *drastically* change for the better!

@ljn Draymond just recently spoke the truth. They couldn't get past that Cavs team without Durant. That's really who they needed him for
Lucky Carter
Lucky Carter Month ago
@Lola GS were able to win this year without KD, yes. Not only was Klay not the same, Draymond was less important, Iggy is old, young guys stepped up but on the other side...they played an inexperienced team. Curry couldn't get one win vs Toronto without KD & Klay. Last season, he couldn't get one win vs a HEALTHY JA & Memphis to make the playoffs. Durant was definitely needed for LBJ & Kyrie more than any opponent

It's tough being a Nets fan... giving up the entire young core and a lot of picks, because on paper, having Kyrie, KD and Harden gives you a chance for a championship. Reality is the best we got, was a 2nd round exit... Now the whole roster is imploding and what is the management doing? Trading a super valuable 1st round pick for Royce O'Neale... you gotta be f*cking kidding me...

KD could literally be on the Golden State Warriors right now celebrating another championship with great teammates, a world class GM, the best owner in the league, a hall of fame coach, and a second to none culture if he FELT like it. But instead he chose this. Some people are really their own worst enemies.

100timessquare Month ago
So in other words you want KD is to choose the path of least resistance. KD knows those chips in GS comes with a asterisk and he will never get the respect from the Bball gods unless he gos to a team where he's that dude and he wins a 🏆. Your thinking is that of a loser who can't do it as a leader.

Players don't owe anything to franchises (except going out and play), especially when they can get traded on a whim (right, Ainge?). Loyalty is a myth.

I respect the NETS! They dove in the big name pool even tho they was building it up the correct way... Thru the draft!!! But Kyrie came knocking and honestly...what he was offering you had to take.. But its been a disaster and its time to blow this bs up and be super aggressive and go after big VIC

Marzdeep
Marzdeep Month ago
I wonder... if this happens, I wonder if they do a three team trade with another team, if Phoenix gives everything up, they have no team to put around him. Must be another team trying to offload contracts from their balance sheets, maybe swap a comparable player for another with a lesser contract.
Mitch Rapp
Mitch Rapp Month ago
What this event shows me is its very important when judging basketball legends to actually be around in that era and see the players go about their business live. KD is a prime example of someone that on paper looks like he is top 5-10 all time but seeing whats going on with your own eyes you realise he isn't built like that and can't lead a franchise.

@tony tone Actually that year Kendrick Perkins and Derek Fisher were the leaders of the team! They put the young core together and held them together back in 2012.
KJ Hendrix
KJ Hendrix Month ago
I think the issue is that KD and Kyrie didn't know how have a winning culture or know how to control/build a team because they've either played for established organizations that already had a strong culture (Golden state and Boston) or were too young to have true control (OKC and Cleveland)

And neither of them are leaders for their team. Kyrie is about as disruptive as it gets and KD just wants to ball. He's not the type to assert himself as the alpha dog in the locker room. That's one reason he picked golden state over OKC back then. That team already had a leader and KD could just do his thing without worrying about anything else.

The reason why KD and kyrie are such good friends is that they are exactly alike. They are flaky and highly volatile. They’re never satisfied or appreciate the situation that they are in. Kyrie had lebron, top 3 all time. KD had steph, best pg and teammate of all time. And they both left those situations looking for what? Each other? And this is the result.

@Alex Zeke is a better PG, not a better scorer. Overall, f I’m building a team, I’ll take Curry but that’s an oversimplification of the value of the PG position. When it comes to being a floor general, pace setter, reliable ball handler who can score at a high clip… isiah Thomas IS BETTER. Zeke is more of a jack of all trades while Curry is all around good and then catupolts into the convo because of his all time great shooting. IF curry wasn’t that great of a shooter if he could shoot only as good as Zeke, there’s no longer any discussion.

KD's one of the best but he's making it worse for his legacy. Joining the warriors was the best and the worst thing that happened for his Legacy.

He hasn't shown this pathetic side when he was with OKC, who would've known?
Allen Ruz
Allen Ruz Month ago
@Christopher Columbus read. That's enough reason to say he left the worst with him. Nets gave up everything to get him, and all he had to do is be patient for everyone to play more games together and instead of doing that, he will leave despite all the Nets did for him and Kyrie. Also, he did this as soon as the warriors won without him so it looked way worse than it should look.

@twisted8725 ! It's been one year lol.
《Thee Sweet Science》
Exactly. And at this point Kyrie isn't a good fit ANYWHERE. Where has he ever played and not had it implode quickly? It was even crazy when he was WITH LeBron. Even if he does go to LA and straightens out, shows up and accepts everything and vibes out with lebron, to me it still won't mean anything. Cuz it's literally like he kicked and screamed like a child to leave lebron and the cavs, left Bron sitting there with his hands in the air like "ummmm, what?". Then has kicked and screamed through a couple organizations. Was out the door halfway thru a season with the Celtics lol. Coaxed KD to follow his snake oil salesmanship to the Nets... has nearly a hometown vibe, a team he can build a whole legacy with. Now silently kicking and screaming his way BACK to Lebon the save "save LA"? Then we will see interviews of him preaching team basketball and good juju? Dude is tooooo transparent. Can't root for it at alllll. I hope K Leonard actually comes back healthy, him and P George, actual guys actually from LA, and out a put ole stop sign up against this "Lake Show" thing. I'm not a fan of either team, but I ca. Respect what the clippers are up to. This thing with kyrie and now the Lakers, I could NOT dig through all the straws inbthe world and grab one that has any redeeming value to root for when they tip toe through the playoffs.

The real news why he wants out is because Irving asked to be bought out so he can go to LA.

Durant is leaving because he pushed the Nets to give Kyrie a long term deal- which did not happen(and he did not deserve). I hope KD goes to the Suns so they can battle the Warriors out West.

Your worries (yes, anxiety), depression, suicidal thoughts, EVERYTHING will melt away and be NO MORE when you lean on God and put your trust in him!! When I have physical pain, I literally pray and the Lord quells it, that I am healed!! Know that there is power in the name Jesus Christ! His name casts out demons and heals! People are bothered by his name. The world hates the truth and wants to continue living sinfully! God's children are set apart (holy) and righteous.

A true Leader Last Year - Steph got eliminated after the play-in - He tells the NBA World - you don't want to see us next year and resigns with the Warriors. This Year KD gets swept in the first round and tells his team to trade him with 4 years left on his contract.

Watch Durant and Irving be traded to the same team. Irving said earlier that he and Durant will run the team. This was planned by them immediately after they got those brooms from Boston.

Those mofos fumbled themselves. They had a franchise bend over backwards for them and appeasing to their every whim and hate the result. And then when it comes to negotiation and the nets are bringing up the report card they got out of them, they bail???? No accountability and no self awareness. This is a lesson learned on the nets FO and I wouldn’t fire them yet. What is a franchise supposed to do when you got two divas running the show.

As a Nets fan only positive thing about the Kyrie KD signing is that it made me money selling the season tickets I bought before the trade. What an utter disappointment. To be honest didn't expect a chip especially when Harden and DAntonion was brought in but I thought maybe atleast a finals appearance or ECF.

@ljn To be honest, I never wanted Kyrie accepted it bc it got us KD but I though the antics were just to force his way off the team Before the James Harden cast Kyrie and KD we're coming into a great supporting cast that was a big part of the nets return to the playoffs. Jarret Allen, Dinwiddie, Joe Harris, Jared Dudley, Caris LeVert. I thought at the minimum we'd be a contender.

@Eric but that's the thing, the nets can't be competetive this upcoming season. I think they gonna trade kyrie too, at least I hope so, but I don't really like what the lakers have to offer. I wouldn't even be too mad about Russ, I think on a different team he can be more effective than on the Lakers, though on the nets without a lot of floor spacing wihout Kyrie and potentially KD. But THT.. i don't think he has that much Potential to become a Solid starter 🙄 I also don't know, how a good Deal for KD would look like that's realistic

@SecondC1tySaint Brooklyn isn’t planning to tank. Houston has their picks for the next few and that first round pick they traded to the Jazz is an indication that they’re going to try to stay competitive. Ben+Kyrie. (I think he’s getting traded)+ whatever young players they get back from Phoenix, Miami, or Boston could at least be a play in team. Bens stock isn’t too high right now so he needs to remind everyone what he can do on the court so the nets can get some good pieces in return

@Irvin They should trade them both, they should even try to get rid of Simmons, who knows if he's even gonna play next season, might as well let somebody else worry about it and start fresh. Get as many picks they possibly can and some promising young players they can build around.

The reason why KD and kyrie are such good friends is that they are exactly alike. They are flaky and highly volatile. They’re never satisfied or appreciate the situation that they are in. Kyrie had lebron, top 3 all time. KD had steph, best pg and teammate of all time. And they both left those situations looking for what? Each other? And this is the result.
