    Before this year, most people expected them to run through the east, possibly to 60+ wins, after last year when they were just 1 win away from making the NBA Finals with Kyrie and Hayward..

    Now with Kyrie and Hayward, they are sitting at 5th in the East.

    a couple of nights ago they were fighting in the huddle



    Now Kyrie frustrated with Gordon Hayward.

    Not enough minutes; not enough basketballs.

    Team needs to move some guys.

    Yup, way too many guys whose game revolves around them having the ball in their hands and not enough role players. Rozier, Brown, Horford, Irving, Tatum, Morris, Hayward, etc. all need shots and extended PT. The assembly of players is good independently, but not cohesive as a group.

    Lol Irving talking big when the Cavs kept collecting top 4 lotto picks under him before Lebron came back and saved his ass.

    Kyrie did learn a lot while going to the finals several years in a row with Bron. I don't think he is just talking out of his ass now. He may not have done it when he was by himself but I think it's fair to say he has a good idea of what it takes to be a championship team now.

    Not really Irving was only doing what he was supposed to do and score the ball. Lebron can't be the only one doing everything he has to pull his own weight. If you think about it Irving was still in the hole since he was injured the last time and coyldnt contribute anything.

    Yeah but he isn't exactly applying what he learned. Instead he is blaming the others and telling them listen to me I'm a champion I know what it takes. People aren't gonna listen to him when he says things like that lol.

    I actually like watching Irving play. He’s an exciting player.

    But he’s overrated in terms of being this guy that’s an mvp superstar and can be your best player on a championship team.

    To me he’s on like a jimmy butler level.

    He’s good his game sort of resembles franchise guy but really he’s just a 2nd banana.

    To me he won a lucky championship with Lebron and got smoked in the other finals he went to.

    They play that series 100 times and I’m sure they lose every time.

    But Irving seems like a tough guy like butler to get along with and play with.

    He doesn’t make guys better and he seems to alienate his team. You can see it in his teammates face when he’s taking about his experience and he knows what it takes. It’s a poor way to lead when a lot of players and media don’t eveb rate him as a top 10 player let alone a mvp superstar.

    Ainge should trade him for AD right now and resign scary terry.
