Too many People act like no superstar has gone through difficult things in there life like MJ with the loss of his father and IT with the loss of his sister. and a handful of players who go through mental illness. All the shade the media projects on him prolly doesn't help either. Kyrie has said many times that he loves the art of basketball. and I think enjoying the sport and competing at the highest level is what keeps him happy, what keeps him distracted by other thoughts and being in the dumps. Next time you want to complain about a player remember their human beings, then think if what you have to say is really worth it or nt. Then make your decision.

His recent actions shows why even though they KNEW Lebron was leaving they still chose to trade him rather than James. That and there was probably less teams Lebron was willing to be traded to

Stephen a Smith should not be asking players to Retire. That is none of his business. Not a fan of Kyrie's recent antics, however sometimes players go through a phase. Kyrie has a great basketball skills, if he allows somebody to be his coach or a mentor, Kyrie can become a good leader. However prior to that Kyrie needs to be a productive teammante and that he should not be needing a coach. That is the least he can do by being a constructive and productive teammate.

Stephen A is showing KI tough love. "Is Kyrie ready to return with a real commitment for entire season?" Yes or No? Kyrie's vision was KD duo, and now it's a trio. Kyrie must push pass 3rd wheel, new duo and off the bench talk for a chip. Kyrie is a sensitive, gifted and misunderstood hero. He lost his Mom at 4 and he adores his sacificing Father. Kyrie's fans wish him the best.

Lakers are undoubtedly the best team in the Nba, Kyrie and Kd is not enough to take Lebron and the big man down. They needed that offensive force that Harden brings. If you look at the nets history they tried to bring the Celtics line up to the nets. They felt short and the great 3 point king Ray Allen. Nets is a great organization and they out smarter a lot of people.

If you look at at KD is calm about everything, because he indeed knows that they will acquire 3 superstars, because what does Kyrie and Irving wants to take Lebron James down, and what does James want his first Ring with these players. Kyrie is a very smart man. The Organization succeeded.

Steven A., I will let you know right now their plan. Kyrie had this master plan to where he needs to being his market value down, to look bad so that the rockets wouldn't want him. What is better than 2 superstars? 3 is the answer. Kyrie quotes media are just pawns. Kyrie is a smart man. They needed to think of a way that the Rockets wouldn't want Kyrie Irving wether it's mental issues or or as a player in general Kyrie, KD, and James succeeded. All the paparazzi and talks are just talks. You of all people should know that Steven A., the main goal is to win a championship and their master plan worked. Now James and KD will carry the team let the media die down a little then Irving will come back. “Just like nothing happened”.
