    Is there a way this man could actually be in the conversation for MVP?

    I think we do. We have often offered crap for a good player. Kennard and RoCo are rarely in the rotation anymore.
    Jackson played 15 minutes last night and Wall they are considering cutting. I would be surprised if the Nets took that deal.

    – via Twitter NYPost_Lewis
    Brian Lewis: Kyrie Irving has not decided yet whether he will suit up for the #Nets again and play or sit out the rest of the season if not moved by Thursday’s trade deadline, according to a source familiar with the situation. But it is a nuclear option they say is being discussed. #NBA

    The Nets would be my new non-Blazer favorite team (even with Durant) if they had the balls to let Kyrie sit for the rest of the season and not pay him a fucking dime. That will not happen because someone will offer some value, but I would love to see him not get his way.

    He would be right now if we were winning. So yeah, if we make the trades before Friday that get us winning and in the mix and Dame continues to put up these kinds of numbers then he could definitely win the MVP. I don't trust our management to make that happen but I'm keeping my fingers crossed until Friday.

    You do realize that's a really shitty deal for an equally shitty malcontent who needed an otherwordly player to get him a title because he's an awful teammate, right?

    You didn't know that because you posted that. So you're welcome. Learn from your mistake.

    you wish the team had a Balmer type owner to make an incredibly short sighted trade that will most likely backfire?

    We did that already.

    Wall, Jackson, and Covington are all washed up. BKN has no interest in that. Nurk, Hart, and Winslow is a better offer than that.

    Bad.

    Future hall of fame player, still in his prime, sucks as a starter.

    There are currently 7 players averaging more than 30 ppg. That's absolutely bonkers.

    I started going back through the last 40+ years and this has never happened. At most there was maybe 1-2 guys.
