I answered "yes" in the thread earlier - prior to us getting Kyrie.

Now that we know many of the particulars to him allowing himself to be traded to BOS I'd be hesitant to answering "Yes" to the thread.

I thought Kyrie left CLE to escape LeBron's shadow....

Now that this is Kyrie's team if I were Brad and Danny I'd talk to Kryie about this 1st.

My initial guess would be that Kyrie would be more open to LeBron joining him in BOS "IF" he'd already won a Banner here, Banner 18 - with him getting NBA Finals MVP.

If Kyrie could do THIS? This year? Without GH? Wow he'd be a bonafide "Alpha" in this league...a solid top 5 player.

Once egos are placated with such an accomplishment I'd think that Kyrie would THEN welcome LeBron with open arms.

If he begged... yes, I'd entertain it.

No. No. No. I don't want Lebron. He's a great player, but every title he wins becomes a Lebron title, not a team title. I root for the Celtics, not for one player on the Celtics. I actually like this team, I don't want to ruin it by bringing in a petulant child like Lebron. Let's go out and beat him. lastly, he isn't coming here anyway as thete.no feasible way to make the cap space nessecary. Plus I am fairly certain he hates the Celtics.

So Kyrie on the Jimmy Kimmel show said "it's always possible" that Kyrie could play alongside Lebron again at some point in his career.

That led quite a few to speculate whether Lebron could come to Boston...  :P

If he said it's not possible, the follow up question would immediately be why not. It's often best to answer a question in a way that won't invite a follow up. He answered it the right way.

The problem with LeBron is ultimately it's all about him.  In that respect he'd be the anti-Celtic. You could bring him here, I'd sure he'd pay lip service to the Celtics tradition etc - ultimately I don't think they'd win a title with him.

I hate LeBron. Greatest player of our generation, but man one of the most selfish prima donna athletes I have ever seen.... I wouldn't want him anywhere near this team. He would not only destroy chemistry, but he would just create an environment that is just too toxic. His ego just won't allow him to co-exist with Irving on the same floor either.

Yup

I would get far greater enjoyment from beating him in the process of winning a title.

Never mind the fact that for Boston to acquire him we'd somehow have to dump a ton of salary.  And the problem with that is we don't exactly have any bad contracts to dump in order to free up cap space, we'd have to get rid of really good players.

We spent the past decade trying to beat him. At this point we need to beat him
