How can anyone trust this guy? IT and Kyrie are very similar. Why would we have done the trade - giving up so much - if IT was fully health? For five inches of Kyrie? Given what Isaiah has meant to our city?

It is just implausible, in my mind, that the Cavs were not aware, for the most part, that IT had a hip injury.

I think this is a total bad faith move by Koby Altman to try and steal some extra compensation from the Celtics. Be forewarned, ye NBA general managers who would deal with him in the future. Just goes to show that Cleveland is a toilet organization. If you're going to try a trick like this - don't let it leak out.

Was thinking about this today.

I'm starting to believe, though, that maybe Dan Gilbert is pushing a rookie GM to do his dirty work...

I'm not ready to put full blame on Koby just yet.

I think we should all do ourselves a favor and forget the name, Koby Altman. Unless his methods take the NBA by storm, he will be a footnote in history in the not so distant future.

His first task is to rebuild a team of overpaid veterans that is going to lose the best player of our generation. If he can pull off what Ainge has, I will give him a mulligan (like the Raef/Antoine deal with DA), but the dude has a lot to prove and he isn't making himself any friends out there with other gms.

I like the phrase "5 inches of kyrie"
