So in other words you want KD is to choose the path of least resistance.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hmm... and why did KD leave the Warriors? To build his own "coach-less" superteam. I guess it didn't work out. He tried to destroy the Warriors on the way out and now he destroyed the Nets. He's a team killer. Same said for Kyrie.

kd is like a woman who likes attention and is self entitled . He is not a leader and he is scared of the celtics. that broom that he received in the playoffs will have him having nightmares for the rest of his life. wanted to be a man and told the grown ups that he wanted to move out, now the bills are coming due and he realize that being an adult comes with responsibilities and now he wants to go sleep in his friends mansion on the couch so they can bail him out... i dont understand what any team think that kd could do for them in his later years when he couldnt achieve anything in his prime... he rode the warriors coat tail and was given a championship and without the warriors stacking the deck, he would not have won anything

You're insane. He left the Warriors because he was the most hated guy in the league and everyone was saying that his chips don't worth anything. He most definitely made the right move by leaving GSW and trying to win a real ring. It didn't work out in Brooklyn but at least he gained back a little bit of respect. He'll get a lot of respect if he wins an actual ring.

Kd never said that, all great players have some type of relationship with the coach. Kd loved Steve because he helped him in GS. He definitely didn’t try to destroy a team purposely, and one person cant destroy a franchise. If he was a team killer then everybody in the league wouldn’t be tryna recruit him rn. Definitely not the same with kyrie so lets stop with the nonsense

Teams should have learned after the James Harden/ Houston situation. Don't give the players so much power in how you run your team. They gave up great players for Durant, Kyrie, and Harden. They got the coach Kyrie and Durant wanted. Paid them great money. Dealt with Kryie playing when he feels like it. And they STILL want to leave. I'm all for player empowerment. Just so long as it doesn't wreck the franchise upon them leaving. Houston and Brooklyn have now learned this lesson.

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.

Jarret Allen, Dinwiddie, Joe Harris, Jared Dudley, Caris LeVert. I thought at the minimum we'd be a contender.

Swapping KD for 3 solid all stars as a Nets fan I’m not mad at that at all, considering For the whole season it seemed like virtually a 1 man show with KD always getting the job done to somehow save us out the mud. 3 more all stars with better 2 way players will give us better rotation and better squad depth. Obviously u want the best player on ur team but can’t say the GM ain’t tried or given us what we wanted. Also trade Steve Nash whilst ur at it, thank you
