    Clippers are a dark horse, imagine if the Clippers trade RoCo, Powell and X for Kyrie.

    Yeah, imagine pairing Kyrie with Dame and CJ... that would have been a super team.

    With Kyrie's ability to screw good teams, that would remove one team from contention next year... ;)

    (See Boston, Nets)

    More interesting is how this impacts KD and Simmons' tenure there

    I would seriously try to work out a sign and trade for KD or Simmons using Ant.

    Neil would like to come back to Portland and put Dame, CJ and Kyrie together.

    Well, he did win with Lebron once. I know the break up was not the best, but I really don't want to see him land in LA.

    Lakers and Knicks are the boogeymen. The teams to truly watch out for I think are Dallas, Spurs, and Miami as Kyrie landing spots.

    So. You are saying it would take arguably the GOAT and Draymond Green getting to miss a finals game for them to contend?

    really wondering why the Blazers are absolutely NEVER in discussion when a star Player seems to be available. Not that i want Kyrie, i actually dont want him, I mean in general, are the Blazers that much boring?

    Another poster who has been hitting the hard stuff way too early in the morning.........I've been an NBA fan for most of 60 years and I am not sure I have ever seen a more overrated player than Kyrie Irving. Any player who believes (and acts like) he is bigger than the game is a cancer (not to mention his history of being emotionally and physically fragile). And Irving has proven that wherever he has gone. If LeBron hadn't felt like doing his hometown a solid, Irving wouldn't even be wearing a ring. I have never understood the love for the guy. He couldn't carry Dame's jockstrap. No thanks, even on a 2 way contract......

    See your post I responded to; "I would seriously try to work out a sign and trade for KD or Simmons using Ant."

    Edit: Oops, confused KD for Irving. Not finished with my coffee. Sorry.......but I feel the same way about KD and Simmons, so I have that going for me.....

    KD = Kevin Durant

    Simmons = Ben Simmons

    Missing = Kyrie Irving

    I also want nothing to do with Kyrie.

    I'm also leaning heavily against ever acquiring Simmons.

    Durant is the one that I'd love to get if we're really trying to get a ring for Dame.

    Brooklyn now has two guys that don't want to play and they can't trade. Time to move on KD.

    In my view Kyrie is a headcase and not a good locker room presence but he has the best handle in the game...he is a superstar talent. Lebron wouldn't have that first Cleveland ring without him. Dame says Kyrie has the best handle in the game as well...he's Andre Miller crafty...unfortunately he needs to come to terms with things like...the world is round and vaccinations save lives. Other than that ...playing basketball is not his weakness.

    actually a pretty simple idea for both sides if Gobert for Kyrie.
