    If he leaves he will guarantee go to a worse situation. But in Boston he may see himself coming off the bench in a couple of years. They're probably gonna be better without him in a few years.

    We have enough assets and young talent to survive this. Not to mention this overrated tag he carries around, for fair or unfair reasons. He's hurt alot also.

    Losing Tatum would be a far bigger blow.

    This is just something to create talk as the off-season nears. The Celtics are more likely to move on from Kyrie due to salary reasons, position flexibility, or trade value. Him leaving makes little to no sense, in pretty much every way you look at it.
    No one loves the "Boston culture" whatever that even means.

    Because he never wanted to be there in the first place. We don't no how he feels, and this story could be just fake news.

    But we shouldn't be trying to presume whats best for Kyrie.

    They was never on his list. So I don't know how you can say this.

    You never know what can happen but this seems more speculative than rooted in any actual knowledge of the situation.

    If the Celtics really are “scared” by anything in particul then I’d look for them to be proactive:

    They can get into the FA game via S&T that sends Kyrie somewhere and a FA back to Boston either from that team (Cousins - NO) or from another team who’s FA is gonna leave for another team of not Boston (George - OKC, Lebron - CLE, Jordan - LAC).

    I’m sure they could get good draft pick(s) that they could package with their treasure chest of picks they already have to try and move up for Bamba or Carter who fit their young core as the missing big man.

    There are two trades I actually would make if I’m Boston... the first would be a S&T for Lebron. Either Kyrie back to CLE or him to NY and then sending picks to CLE for facilitating the S&T. The other would be a deal with Dallas that gets us Bamba and DSJ Jr. I think Boston would have to throw in some more but I think Kyrie for that would at least start a dialogue.

    So close every speculation thread? PSD would be a ghost town.

    Also in regards to his original list. The talk at the time of the trade is that he was thrilled to be in Boston but just never saw it being realistic. He has ties to the area with his dad going to school here. He actually recruited Hayward to CLE as an RFA before Lebron came back. And he obviously had a shot to win and play in a great system. Not saying he doesn’t or didn’t have eyes elsewhere but I don’t think he’s unhappy or unwilling to stay in Boston. Don’t get that vibe at all.

    Seems like a stab in the dark here.

    I never got the sense Kyrie didn't like it in Boston watching him this year. Ultimately, this is really his team.

    I find the timing of this story peculiar too coming at the heels of the LeBron taking a meeting with Boston story. Story might have just be a subtle leak to Cs brass by Kyrie's side as a "Hey, I left Cleveland to get away from Lebron." Hint hint.

    I get that. But I also think players want to be wanted and seeing a whole bunch of “trade Kyrie for Kawhi” stories is playing into it as well. Part of him has got to be going “if these media guys want this I’m not sure if I want to be here.”

    he's just leveraging for a no trade clause.

    I mean, that’s life in the NBA. There’s rumors everywhere. Is Lebron leaving CLE? Can GS afford their core? Will HOU break it up for another star? Etc, etc.

    I can see the talk weighing on Kyrie though so I do see the point. It’s going to happen wherever he goes next too though. And I’d say the local media has been totally dismissive of move Kyrie talks which helps.

    Doesn't sound like a substantial report.

    However, this is why some of us said that you gotta wait until you can properly evaluate the CLE/BOS trade. Kyrie would've missed the playoffs even if he was still with Cleveland, and if LeBron is gone our chances at being a contender would leave with him.
    The Baker is coming.
