I started working on this post on Friday and wrote a whole bunch about Kyrie’s potential fit with the Lakers, but I swear I included a part at the end where I said a trade to the Mavericks would make a lot of sense. This is what I wrote on Friday in my draft: “While… Read More Kyrie has been traded to the Mavericks 👀
The latest on Kyrie from Shams Charania, via Lakers Nation because Athletic articles are behind a paywall: Right off the bat, I’m suspicious of this story. So let me get this straight: the Nets love Kyrie now? After they wouldn’t offer him a max contract without first loading it up with caveats and incentives? I… Read More Kyrie Staying in Brooklyn? Lakers Moving on to Hield and Turner?
It’s becoming increasingly clear that the Nets’ preference right now is to simply run it back with the roster they have. This is why there haven’t been any trades despite KD requesting out in early July. This is the reason the Nets don’t like any of the offers that have been made for both KD… Read More The Nets Are in Denial
It took about two weeks for LeBron to sign the extension he was eligible to sign starting August 4: This jibes with a lot of what we’ve been seeing lately: that LeBron is very happy where he is, he’s on good terms with the Lakers front office, and he wants to remain a Laker. I… Read More LeBron Signs 2 year, $97 million Extension with LA Lakers; Russ Trade Imminent?
I don’t think KD’s request that’s the Nets fire Steve Nash and Sean Marks is the full story. I wrote a post over a month ago, right when KD first demanded a trade out of Brooklyn, that I thought KD was trying to “break up” with Kyrie without actually explicitly saying or doing so—in other… Read More More Evidence KD Wants out of Brooklyn Because of Kyrie
So KD has not backed off his trade request, and he has made his demands clearer: I am not sure why KD specifically wants Nash and Marks fired. It probably explains it in the Athletic article but I’m not paying for to read it. ESPN is not reporting it at all. There’s nothing about this… Read More KD Delivers Ultimatum to Nets Owner Joe Tsai: Either Fire Steve Nash & Sean Marks, or Trade Me
We may be nearing another Celtics-Nets blockbuster trade that will define each franchise for years to come, only this time, I’m not so sure the Celtics are going to be the ones making out like bandits. I don’t know why I didn’t see this coming. The Celtics were an obvious choice for a KD trade.… Read More Report: Celtics Emerging As Strong Contenders in KD Trade Talks
I have no #Sources, or any information at all to prove my assertion. I’m not basing this off of any rumors I heard on NBA Twitter, or anything like that. It’s just a result of me evaluating the leverage both sides of this deal possess, and coming to the conclusion that Sean Marks of Brooklyn… Read More I Think the Kyrie-Westbrook Trade Might Happen Soon…
It’s starting to feel like Woj is the guy who regurgitates whatever the Nets’ front office wants him to say: While Kevin Durant requested a trade last week and the Brooklyn Nets have been amenable to dealing him away, talks have been slow to materialize. The Nets are having a difficult time finding a trade… Read More Woj: KD Might Remain with Nets
Who were the Nets trying to fool here with this leak? This is like the old, “You can’t fire me because I quit!” line. This is nothing but cope and rationalization from the Nets. They’re trying to make it seem like they not only don’t care if they lose KD and Kyrie, but that they… Read More Sorry, Laker Fans: Kyrie Opts to the Final Year of his Contract With Brooklyn
