Everyone moves out of Brooklyn in their 30s

Phoenix? Absolutely nobody should ever want to be stuck in Satan's sweaty butthole

Do a hard reset--Move the Sonics back to Seattle and send him there. It's a win-win!

I have a feeling Kyrie is really hard to get along with.
 
2022-06-30 10:36:37 PM  
Brian Windhorst: "There's a very slim chance both KD and Kyrie wind up w/ Lebron on the Lakers."
Richard Jefferson: "If that happens, I'll quit this show and become a referee."

Durant in Toronto would be fun.

Durant's turned out to have an absolute joke of a career. Couldn't win anything at OKC even with Westbrook and Harden. Left to a Warriors team that just won 73 games. Left to be his own man. Failed at being the man spectacuarly in Brooklyn. Now he wants to become a beta to an already established team.

That OKC trio just keeps up their entirely weird careers. KD did get rings but man, even with the finals MVP, it is definitely seeming like he is third banana to Curry/Klay since they won another one.

KD the player, meet LeBron the GM.
 
2022-07-01 2:38:12 AM  
Remember when he was on that team, the one where the main star willingly took less money to make sure KD could get paid?
And then he demanded a trade from that team to the Brooklyn Nets?

Good times, man, good times.

Yeah, nobody wants to play with Devin Booker or cp3 or ayton. Or mcgee.  Or crowder.

Ahem

I'd rather have Barnes, if that's what it would take to get him.  If it took Anunoby and Siakam I could maybe live with that

I don't get why teams go so crazy for KD and Kyrie. Both are talented but just can't lead  teams to win a championship. It's telling that only one team would want Kyrie in a trade this time around.

McGee signed with the Mavs yesterday and Ayton is on his way out.

The Celtics exposed his weakness.  His dribble drives involve his his huge wingspan, which imeans he dribbles the ball six feet away from his body, which makes it really easy to yoink that ball away.

The guy's worth $170 million more than I am, basketball is a business, he's doing just fine at basketball from my viewpoint.

Is this a humble brag? He's made over 300 million from his NBA salary alone. Probably another 100 mil at least from endorsements. Wanna hang out?

Damnit, I saw that too and totally forgot about it

I want to criticize him for this, but I just can't. I've made a point to celebrate any employee leveraging their power. Good for him.

He's one of the few great players of this era who wouldn't be better in the old era.  He'd be injured constantly under the old hand-check and flagrant rules.  He'd still be good, but he'd struggle a lot more.

I wouldn't lump Kyrie and KD together, personality wise.  I'd take KD over Kyrie any day of the week, and I don't even care about the vaccine stuff.

KD is a rich selfish man baby.  Has shown that everywhere he has gone.  He can play a good game of being a team player and nice to the city he is in but in the end he is a whiny dick.   A highly talented dick but still a dick.  He also has started his downward spiral, still better then half the NBA but age is starting to show.

Oh the rich selfish man baby goes for at least 50% of pro sports stars.

1 inch from pulling a limping team into the finals = failed spectacuarly [sic]?

I'm not going to be an apologist for Durant's lesser moves, but let's at least be honest here. The Nets effort was ultimately a failure, but not without its successes.

I'll take any opportunity I can to point out that the Nets were Durant's long-ass feet away from winning that game.

I don't really get the KD hate. Like, he seems a little annoying and a little sensitive. I don't know if he's my first pick to hang out with. He doesn't seem getting worked up over.

/long-ass feet.

He's great and he's a whiner. Used to use fake Twitter accounts to defend himself.  You literally play a game for your living and worried about what Joe Schmo says about you on Twitter?   FARK THAT GUY

Love to see him in Portland. If Brooklyn was smart they'd find a way to exile him in Minnesota or Charlotte or DC.

Minnesota just traded their entire team for Gobert.

Adding Durant would be ridiculous, but Anthony Edwards, Towns, and KD can't all shoot at once.

.....Exactly how is hand checking supposed to prevent a 6"10 guy with a 7"5 wingspan from pulling up for 3, who makes 50-55% of his midrange shots.

Hand checking was more to prevent driving/guiding point guards who rarely tried to scored and worked more towards setting up plays, which would disrupt them.

Durant as an 18 year old torched team USA in their scrimmage before he even played an NBA game under FIBA rules.  And actually the youngest player ever to suit up for team USA on top of that.
