    I don't think that this has ever been a direct question on here between the 2. If this is what the trade is mostly about, which guy would you prefer on this roster?

    I want nothing to do with Simmons and trying to build around him or attaining Kyrie for ourselves. Can Kyrie get u a good young player in return from a 3rd team? That is the question I’m interested in.

    I've had enough crazy this year to last all of 2021. I'll take Simmons and calm.

    Very doubtful. Simmons likely has exponentially more trade value if we want to redirect him than Kyrie does.

    Idk if Kyrie is even a positive asset at the moment honestly. My guess is no.

    No to kyrie

    1. he wont even report
    2. he doesn't fit with wall
    3. ben can play at the 4 and greatly improve our defense

    i love kyries game and he is one of the best scorers in history. every part of his offensive game is elite, but the guy just isn't all there.

    He’s like that episode of South Park when they’re smelling their own farts like they’re drinking fine wine.

    I
    If we’re doing a complete culture change... that would be going with Ben Simmons. Kyrie leaves us 1-dimensional and he sucks as a teammate. What do you guys think about a Double pnr situation with Simmons and Wood? Ben can roll to the basket, Wood can pop out. Simmons can play make from there too or Wall explodes, floater or Alleyoop to Wood. We would be monsterous on defense. You got Ben who can guard everyone... our switch D would be greatly upgraded.
    we gonna need another shooter and picks.
    Wall, Gordon, Simmons, Tucker, Wood. Wall just needs to take more uncontested 3’s. I’d like to see them excel on defense and transition offense. It will be a lot more fun to watch and be fluid. I think we just got used to iso ball. We forgot about team basketball.

    we joke and stuff, but i've legit run into this rumor in many places. Kyrie has even had to have nasal surgery. He'd be getting bricks on the cheap down here man!

    Better get a 3rd team involved to take either off our hands and just stock pile picks...

    Kyrie will retire if he comes here

    He doesn't have value
