How the hell did the Nets become a top FA destination after being in purgatory for all these years? Whatever.

Honestly this is way better than getting Vince or Dwill. Both were traded whereas Kyrie clearly wanted to be here. Bringing in these two is awesome!

Yup. Iím done with this tanking ****. Does not attract FAs and gives your organization a negative perception. I hope the Bulls compete for the playoffs next 2 seasons and prepare for 2021 free agency.

Easy to say when you in the biggest Market in the basketball universe, and have JayZ's name somewhat associated with your team, and a super star wants to join you regardless because it's closer to home for him.

There's no single surefire way to rebuild. You do what your situation dictates and leave the rest to chance.

It sucks for them but I really do like RJ Barrett, they have a young core of DSJ, Knox.

They need a play maker to round up the starting 5. Kyrie is improving, but he is more of a scorer. They need someone who can drive it to the rim with consistency and kick it out.

right but swap out Durant for a year and its still a playoff team with Dinwiddle. I also forgot about Jarrett Allen. I wonder if they will work on a deal trading Jarrett Allen and Joe Harris for someone.

Are we really that surprised? Kyrie picked up Jay-Z's agency to represent him and Durant had his surgery done by a Nets team doctor.

KD has been with Roc Nation since it started too.

DeAndre Jordan is washed up... I hope they don't think he's going to be a permanent fixture at C.

I watched a lot of his games in Dallas this past season. Defensively he's gotten worse. Offensively he can't really do much either.

He's still the guy who catches lobs, but that's about it.

Agreed they should start Allen if they don't trade him.

Weird decision. Kyrie is overrated in terms of a winning impact and KD may never be the same. Odds arenít in his favor. And having a starting C, who has zero offensive game and not dominant defensively, isnít a great recipe in todayís game.

Yeah this is crazy. Warriors might add Russell I guess? Don't know how I feel about that. It would be a great stop-gap til Klay gets back, but that's a player I would flip for someone else at the deadline if this goes down.

In either regard, I actually think the Warriors dodged a big of a bullet with KD leaving. Getting him from 32-34 post achilles tear at 42 million a year is likely not in Golden State's best interest. That said, I'm glad they did the right thing and offered him the full max.

Unlike the Knicks, lol

Any word on why the Klay deal hasn't been announced? Or was the earlier report all that is gonna come out about it?

Lol well yeah, the Knicks are insane if that report is true and they didn't offer him a max. Just having his star power at 80% of his peak self is more than worth the max. The Warriors are in a different place though.

And yeah not sure in Klay. It's possible he's still considering the Clips or Lakers depending on what Kawhi does. I definitely hope Klay stays.

I'm jumping on the Nets bandwagon. A young team, good coach. Kyrie, KD. At least there's some basketball excitement coming back to NYC. I'm over the Knicks, they've been terrible for decades and they won't be good anytime soon. Nets might get lucky and get KD back for the playoffs.

We both are looking at things with confirmation bias and cherry picking lenses. We will see what happens. Nobody knows but Kawhi, all these rumors and speculations are just that. Masai will convince him of a 1 + 1 at the worse.

Ah damn this is depressing :(

I don't know if him and kyrie is a good duo on the court, plus the next guy Russell is also mainly a scorer. I think warriors was such a perfect situation for him on court. But he gotta do what make him happy, so I'm not mad, he helped bring2 rings here so it's all love for him. He's ridiculous and gonna be contending no matter how they end up building the roster. He's arguably the most unstoppable 1 on 1 offensive player I've ever seen.

Doesnt look like the warriors front office are making that sign and deal thing go down. Bob myers should have been prepared for this scenerio...... but it looks like he doesnt know what hes doing so far.

cant convince his own free agents to come back when they are headed to a new arena next yr. how bad of a gm do you have to be to mess that up? This is what happens when you dont pay jerry west..... although I havent seen the clippers land any big names yet

As amazing as he is, Iíd still put Jordan above him as a one on one player and probably Lebron. Lebron doesnít get one on one looks...similar to Shaq. One on one, nobody was harder to stop than Shaq. Durant probably has the largest package, similar to Dream when compared to centers, but one on one Shaq was a guaranteed bucket almost.

No, he assembled a 73 win squad, plus we're more grown now. There is still a team to be put together.

We are still contenders.

To be fair, Bob Myers works his *** off and is both very smart + very integrated into his job.

To the best of my knowledge (and I have read hundreds of your posts over the years) you are a complete ****ing idiot and should probably stop hating on the team that won 3 of the last 5 ships. Douche.
