Lol Drose just signed with Cavs for a mere 2.1 m/yr lol....

I always liked the Drose /Lebron combo tbh.....

But back to the Lebron/kyrie fiasco..... i knew kyrie was one hell of a passive/aggressive motherfucker .... u can see it in his game.... personality wise ppl always thought he was a chill and humble guy, but when he flips out, he flips the fuck out.


this was hella funny:

A cool read on the Irving situation-
http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2723393-kyrie-irving-cavaliers-trade-lebron-james-nba-offseason

The most salient point in there is that if KI wants the limelight then where does he go that he'll be the top dog? Knicks without Melo maybe. San Antonio nope. Utah idk.

Also very excited to see what playing with Lebron does for Rose. Provided he can stay healthy that is.

hope DROSE has an incredible, healthy season with Lebron.. that'd be sick.. could be his ticket to the finals.

Lebron's getting to the finals again. :d

UTAH would be DANGEROUS with Kyrie. They ran so many clear outs for Gordon Hayward last year, and he sucked it up. IMO Gordon Hayward is THE most overrated player in the league.  He does have some explosiveness, but his reach/wingspan is inferior for his height. He's certainly not a franchise player. He is a solid player, that is it.

Hopefully Lebron gets Drose on track. Drose is used to having big brothers as he is youngest of 4, while kyrie is the only male in family..... I really like the Drose/LBJ combo tbh.... Drose needs to get his mind right and strengthen his legs much more..... no more of that hot wings diet that he brags about

Is Curry accidentally imitating LBJ? kyrie thinks it's funny lol....

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2JM91ZZA50" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2JM91ZZA50</a>

If these guys are dinosaurs, Lebron is a TREX, but Curry and kyrie are raptors..... both insane killers, the raptors might be even bigger killers than TREX.

Who's putting in work:

Melo has a motivating factor, he hasn't really won! Man he has a nice jumper

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUBStynG1ZY" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUBStynG1ZY</a>

When James is not at the club, he's at the club, lol:

Ben simmons, the 6'11 prodigy with a 39.5 SVJ? He has been waiting to enter the game for over a year now lol

TBH, who knows what is really going on in the Cavs organization. Kyrie could have easily just said something like "I'm not against being traded, either" when discussing the future, and than the entire media shit storm went crazy with "Kyrie doesn't like Lebron", Kyrie wants to be Kobe, etc etc

The media and spectators are monkeys. They get hyped up worse than monkeys do when they see action..... it's just the way things are.

He could be nervous about the end of next year when Lebron goes wherever he's going to go next. Kyrie could just be getting out early. Not a bad move if that's is motivation.

I mean why would he be nervous if Lebron leaves, we know he's not ecstatic about being #2.

Something I realized: most of these NBA players have really good posterior chain strength, but so little quadriceps strength, lol.

No wonder they lack explosiveness compared to the other sports: football, soccer, baseball, rugby etc

Looks like the West is going to get another East star.... most likely Kyrie.

Now I can count the # of east stars with 1 hand.... and a few could still move to west....

Tbh skill level wise, there isnt as much disparity as it seems, but experience and confidence West def trumps east.

Wow, Kyrie to Boston, IT + Jae Crowder to Cavs, Cavs vs Celtics season opener  :trolldance: ;D

http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/20421382/cleveland-cavaliers-send-kyrie-irving-boston-celtics-deal-including-isaiah-thomas

IT needs to come off the bench tbh, but i think he will start.
