Man, I hope there is no smoke to the Kyrie nonsense.

That guy is absolute cancer. Let the Lakers have him.

Luka looks like he wants to off himself. They screwed up their roster soooooo bad over the last year.

He is going to demand out within the next year and a half.

The Mavs shot their load early with the Kyrie trade. They weren’t winning anything with or w/o him so they might as well saved the assets until their future picks became tradeable after the Porzingis pick conveys. B/c they included their 29’ pick in the Irving deal their assets are frozen.

Ya hate to see it.

Sometimes I wonder if anyone ever watched the mess the Nets created with their blend of superstars.

The Nets were the clear favorites to win it all two years ago before Harden/Kyrie got injured. They smashed the Celtics then KD nearly beat the Bucks with Blake Griffin as his second leading scorer that series. Then Kyrie went crazy on a bunch of issues and Harden wanted out leading to a total meltdown. They should’ve known Kyrie was a weirdo but I don’t think anyone knew the levels he’d reach in Brooklyn.

At least we are not the Mavs... they're healthy and tumbling out of the playoffs, 6-12 since trading for Kyrie. Just fell to 11th place after losing to the putrid Hornets.
This was predictable.

The only way I’d even tolerate Kyrie on this team is if he watches 21 Jump Street and converts to Judaism.

I'm pretty much 90% sure Kyrie will end up in L.A. Probably with the Lakers, but if not there, with the Clippers. Maybe a 10% chance he ends up back in Dallas.

LeBum such a drama queen. First he’s out and news is worse than expected. Out for longer than anticipated.

Now he could return today? I seriously hope he does because they’re worse with him. He did this same stunt last year I think.

Its pretty obvious he wanted an excuse for the Lakers missing the playoffs. Now that they have a shot at sneaking in, he can play the role of savior. Dude's ego is larger than his skillset.

Dallas just lost AGAIN to Charlotte. The Kyrie trade wasn’t Gobert-level bad but it’s getting there.
Luka and Kyrie are two of the most talented players in the league that happen to be terrible human beings

I get the Kyrie perspective here, but why is Luka a terrible human being? I find him mildly irritating at times, but I can't remember seeing anything that indicates he is a low class person in general.

Luka is a mental pee wee. Not only is he the biggest cry baby in the league but you have to know your situation with technical and the impact missing a game can have on your team making the playoffs.

That’s actually great. No one respects LeBum in this league.

I thought it was a tasteless move by Patrick Beverley.
