    Wow. I looked up Kyrie's stats. I know he missed a ton of games, but he matched a career high in scoring last year. 27.4 pug, 5.8 apg, 4.4 rpg. 47/42/92 shooting percentages. That is MAJOR value and NOT a player you give up for Westbrick (18.5/7.1/7.4 on 44/30/67). Kyrie should be allowed to play all 82 this year despite not being vaccinated yes? If he played for a team other than GS/NY/BK last year, he would've been eligible for all 82. So that's what I'm saying. He HAS VALUE.

    So we want to make this a conversation about cap and trade? Other teams either don't have another contract or space to handle Irving or Westbrrok. Other teams may or may not have the need for either? Other teams probably would not be acceptable to the players involved. Other teams don't want either of them and are not in a bind with needing a better situation.
    Bottom line- No other teams have Russel Westbrook and Kyrie Irving who are both questionable assets at this point?
    That's why those teams are even talking?

    Kyrie should be allowed to play all 82 games, WHATTTTTT! Like he even wants to play that many. With birthdays, Family picnics, Flat Earther Events, and voting candidate obligations. Where have you been ?

    He only played in 29 games. Not hard to have good averages when you barely play. The career high in scoring...he matched it from 2019, when he only played 20 games.

    Even if he is allowed to play all 82, which he likely will, I'd be surprised to see him play in most of them. In 11 seasons he didn't manged to make the 60 game mark in 6 of them. He's averaged only 55 games a season in his career.

    He won’t be playing the one or two games the Nets play in Canada unless he gets vaccinated.

    Obviously I want Westbrook to stay on the Lakers. What I'm saying is that with the Lakers aging the way they are, I don't think the Nets are getting better than an expiring contract that they'll likely buyout and future Lakers picks in '26 and '28.

    They wouldn't be giving him up for Russ... of course that's not a trade that any team would make but trading Kyrie for two future firsts that have a great chance of being high and a player you can buyout and not have count against the cap in 2023-24 is better value than anyone else is going to give for a player as problematic as Kyrie is.

    I hope the Lakers have to stay with what they have and that the Nets can't get good returns for KD or Kyrie... fuck both of those teams but the truth is that you haven't presented anything close to an idea of a deal that the Nets could get that's better than two future firsts and an expiring contract.

    Great Job! Do you know of one team that has been rumored to want to give up two future firsts for Kyrie?
