Because Kyrie is a one-way, undersized PG.

how is he an undersized PG? The average height is 6'2.2 for an nba pg, 6'4 and above is considered large

That, and he can't weigh more than 182 lbs.  Probably why hes always hurt.

Not at all.  He can't weigh more than 180 lbs, and that causes him to be incredibly reliant on speed and circus finishes.  He's good at it, and 25 y/o.  But his weight is probably also why he's always injured.

Of all things for the Celtics to be worried about, kyries weight  probably isn't on the list

No concern here, I'm just qualifying that he's a one-way, undersized PG.

IT, Kyle Lowry and Chris Paul are undersized PGs. At 6'3", Kyrie is about average height for a PG. Steph Curry and Damiam Lillard are both 6'3". That height is a good height for a PG.

 It was protected at one point per Woj. They thought they were getting Tatum and a protected Brooklyn pick, when it became clear we were not including Tatum the protection was removed. Your Welcome.

Here is a shot of him way back in college, and even then he looks pretty solid:


A more recent shot of him alongside Lebron and K-Love:


Doesn't look like skinny to me - though he's far from ripped.

According to DraftExpress he was measured at 6' 3.5" and 191 pounds at a Nets pre-draft workout back in 2011 which is a perfectly normal weight for his height.

Pick had to be unprotected. Cleveland had to get a top pick and if the pick was protected and the pick landed in the protection, you would have to convey the LA/Sac pick. But what if LA finishes outside of the 2-5 range? Then Cleveland is getting a pick from Sacramento two drafts away, in a draft without the top level of talent in it than this year's draft has. Also, in two years Sacramento could be a lot better and possibly the pick lands around 10. That type of pick is unacceptable when giving up a superstar for that pick and a role player and a possibly hurt player on an expiring contract.



We talking about the same Sacramento Kings?  The team that's big free agent splashes this offseason were George Hill for $20 mil per and Zach Randolph who's is being charged with a felony for possession of 2 lbs of pot?
