    Either way, I think if he stayed there would have been a dark cloud around this team after last season. Kemba isnít Kyrie talent wise but heís a better leader and still an all pro scorer. Heís thriving in the Cs system as well over the past 4 games so the Cs donít lose a ton in the end with Kyrie leaving. Kemba is more than adequate replacement and it gives the Jays more touches to further their development.

    Kemba is playing the role Kyrie ideally would've.

    ya i disagree. I never watched Durant and was like "wow he's so fast" lol. he's nearly 7'0 with handles. That's why he drives well. That's not gonna change. far as defense he's still super long so he should be fine. Plus this league don't care about defense anymore.

    It WAS a huge mistake. Boston should've traded him instead. But nobody has a crystal ball.

    I am a Kyrie supporter b/c he is fun to watch and I think the people that are not supporters kill him for not being MVP level when almost no one says he is. Its similar to how I don't remember anyone saying Boston made a huge mistake but here we are

    I think the issue is, he makes teams worse with his style of play. Turnstile on defense, pound the air outta the ball on offense. Uncle Drew is entertaining but it just doesn't translate to wins.

    But he doesn't. He doesn't make you better the way LeBron, KD, Kawhi, AD, and bunch of others do but he clearly an above average starting player.

    Heís fun to watch. Itís even more fun to listen to him talk. Iíve never seen anyone want to look wise and sound like a complete dumb *** lol not like kyrie.

    I donít understand why he left two great situations because he just didnít feel like being there anymore. Kinda crazy if you think about it. There are so many players that would have loved to be in his shoes.

    He doesn't? If there are stats that say he doesn't, I'm open to viewing them and being proven wrong, no biggie to me.

    Just that the Celtics made 2 straight ECF without him but couldn't even get to an ECF with him. To a lesser extent that the Cavs still went to the Finals without him. Also, it's early but the Nets are 3-4. If they miss the playoffs this season, that's probably about all the proof needed. At least from a purely what does a team accomplish with you versus without you.

    That will ultimately be his legacy, especially if stuff with the Nets fizzles out too.
