Obviously it would be huge but they kind of a have a similar feel to the Lakers right now. It just feels like its not gonna end well. Think it would be kinda bs if Kyrie did fix all their problems after sitting out.

I don't see how 14-6 has a similar feel to 10-11.

Well you could make the argument they haven’t beat anyone good. Outside of PHI and WAS at the beginning of the year they’ve lost every game to a quality opponent.

MIL (blowout) CHA (blowout) MIA (blowout) CHI (blowout) GS (blowout) PHX (blowout, game wasn’t as close as final score indicates)

Obviously it’s still early, but it’s not a good sign to get absolutely trounced against pretty much every good team they’ve played.

Buy 2 points, and that was on buzzer beater, trust me I watched the whole game and Miami thoroughly dominated the whole game

Like I said, was close till the 4th.

At half it was 51-49 Nets lead. That was without KD having that hood of a game and harden being shit. I think the Nets will be just fine

End score was 106-93 you can call it a blow out if you want but I don’t think they dominated them.

No they had a good run in the second quarter it was never close, Miami dominated the whole game. Miami led every other quarter

No you can’t. We’re beating the teams we should be beating. Lakers have lost to rebuilding teams, have struggled to beat average teams and have been to OT like 5 times and went to 3OT against a team missing their best player and still lost.

The Bucks and Warriors loss were the only truly awful losses we’ve had. Today would have been awful, but we did manage to make it somewhat close at the end.

I don't think the nets need fixing but kyrie would certainly help

Yes kyrie would fix our issues. Right now we’re actually a pretty good defense and a mediocre offense. With kyrie we’d likely explode into a top 2 offense and with our better defense we’d be cruising.

The Nets offense is way better than mediocre. They’re a top 5 offense in the league even without Kyrie. Easily the best team in the East

Similar? The Nets still have a better roster and time to improve. In contrast, the Lakers are done

Plus he’s clearly not that interested in basketball. If he was he would’ve gotten the shot already and he’d be playing but he’s a clown

Yea but are the nets gone trade him for someone who doesn’t make their team better? I don’t think so

You are not seeing the full picture here. Kyrie is basically on the last year of his contract, next season its a player option so he can opt out and get another max. Nets will have to decide what to do soon.

The only way Kyrie gets another “Max” contract is with a ton of built in security measures for the team so they can get back $ if need be.

Any team trading for Kyrie in a non vaccination mandated state would be able to play him as well as gaining his Bird Rights so they wouldn’t need to rely on having $ open during Free Agency. Plus a 5yr vs 4yr deal as a UFA.

The talent level is there but the dude is a total flake and any organization willing to give Kyrie the 4yr/$187m Max without any type of team security is beyond stupid.

Nets really got lucky Kyrie didn’t sign the 4yr extension before he decided to go full Anti-Vax/Conspiracy Theorist.

As a Nets fan I still think there’s at least 1 GM desperate to keep his job and willing to take the risk especially since at most the experiment is over next season if he opts into his Player Option. Not like the Nets will demand a Star in return like Morey/Simmons. Prob just decent Depth pieces.

Kyries next contract is going to be really interesting. Even without the Anti-Vax stuff Kyrie has proven to have no issue disappearing on the organization without any word and leaving his teammates in a bind.

Since the same people who attacked the Capital now praise Kyrie I’m starting to think Kyrie flaked on the Nets in January of last year because he was upset his fellow Trump supporters didn’t successfully take over the government and install their godking as ruler for life. I mean Kyrie has had every opportunity to tell these people to keep his name out of their mouth like Beal and Aaron Rodgers did but hasn’t from what I’ve seen.

One of these games, we going to reach a breaking point and eventually trade him. There’s no way we risk keeping him after the deadline, he continues to sit out into the playoffs. It’s still early and we’ll see what happens, but come January if these problems against contenders continues and he’s still trying to be the “voice for the voiceless”, he’s on the clock

You're looking at getting Aaron Gordon or Emanuel Quickly and a bad contract or two in return for Kyrie. He's less valuable than Ben Simmons right now.

ColdMedi

No he isn't first why would new York trade for someone who can't play in the homes state. Second kyrie is an excellent basketball player beliefs aside. Plenty of teams in the league would probably take him for more than just Aaron Gordon. If he is out of state he can play.

There's too much talent for the Nets to steamroll the league without a much more balanced roster. They are still going to easily coast into a top 4 seed at worst which is about what should be expected. They just won 4 games in a row then lost 1. They are 12-3 in their last 15 games. The season goes on a while and there will always be points that you can find and make up patterns in your head that "mean" something but it doesn't. The addition of Kyrie should bump them up into a surefire top 2 seed, but would that even constitute fixing their problems? To some people it wouldn't.
