    No way. He may come back, but Kyrie has that potential of just going MIA for no freaking reason. He is an interesting character, that's for sure.

    He's already back. Did you see his comment today?

    Got it. My point still stands on him going MIA suddenly at times.

    Believe me, I know this is going to work, it definitely won't blow up like people are hoping, but I still hope it does lol. I guess this is no different than when Morey told Bosh that Bosh/James/Wade was like a 40 win team or something like that lol.

    You are way too attached to your role players. Nobody else sees them as anything but that. At the end of the day jarrett allen is a good player but he is easily replaceable on the buyout market. And make no doubt about it, there will be plenty of vets lining up for this team

    He is one of if not the best post defender when he puts effort in.

    What do the Nets need really? They got a Swiss army knife in Jeff Greene and have quality depth with the likes of Shamet, Harris and promising rookie bigs. They decongested themselves by the departure of Allen and Lavert it can be argued.

    Except that Allen was much better than DA Jordan.

    Lol the Heatles were much more reasonably structured in terms of age, position and way of playing, salary split reasonably.

    And they were better overall.

    LBJ 26
    Bosh 26
    Host Wade 28 (Big dog who already won one with Shaq)


    Durant 31
    Harden 31
    Kyrie 28-29

    Looking forward to watching (and maybe supporting) this team with Beard in the mix. They definitely need some pieces to round out the rotation, perhaps a wing defender and a backup big. I've seen Ariza's name thrown around already if/once he gets bought out by OKC. Hollis-Jefferson could make his way back to BK. Dedmon is also out there. Offense should be the least of anyone's concern with this team.

    You all think Harden will be the second best on this team. It’s not how it’s gonna work

    Agreed 100%. Most Rockets fan know this too. But now that he's in NY, he's finally gonna get the recognition he deserves.

    Harden's "defensive" video out there will also no longer exist.

    that's the best timeline. gets the monkey off everyone's back (even MDA get's a ring), then the rockets load up on picks.

    I don't think many people actually understand yet what this team means from one simple perspective.

    Harden can virtually never be doubled again. He's going to get consistent single-coverage. Really think about what that means for a minute. Their offense is going to be unstoppable.

    If they don't win it wont be because of Harden. It'll be on depth or Kyrie.

    It's always someone else's fault.
