Kyrie talent/ceiling never been the question, his availability and injury history is. They go ahead and give him that 4 year deal, he starts acting up again and this can backfire.

It’s a real damned if you do damned if you don’t scenario. They must not have faith that they can turn the culture around in the locker room to become a title winner.

Kidd/FO would allow him to miss at least 20+ games a season :ehh:

Right up his alley

Blow this thing over and start again. If they didn’t win with Kyrie/Durant and Harden they ain’t winning with this group. Simmons ain’t a difference maker to take you from being swept 4-0 in the first round to winning a championship. They gonna commit $140 million a year to KD/Kyrie and Simmons to surround them with minimum salary players and Joe Harris @ $19 million :russ:


I would say “Build through the drafts” but them fools traded control over all their first rounders until 2027 for basically Ben Simmons.



Lol exactly they traded their draft picks so they might as well keep the team together. A healthy KD, Kyrie and Ben Simmons with Joe Harris and Seth scurry is still a top contender.

Getting out of Westbrook contract alone will make them a better team.
Russ' deal is done at the end of next year. You sign Kyrie to a 4-5 year deal you're stuck with an injury prone cat that may decide to sit out if he feels like it.
