are you serious or joking? Heís a top 15-20 player in the league
What Iím scared of is what if Gordons never the same? What if he comes back next year and chemistry and things donít go as planned with him and Kyrie, and Kyrie walks? Theyíll only have one year together now before Kyries contracts up. This was a huge blow all around.
yeah. This is fair.
Yup itís tough just the thought of what could have been. They looked amazing in the preseason together with GH. I felt like before he went down we were gonna win the Cavs game you just felt a run coming. Now itís just going to be ugly, lots of close gritty games, mistakes by all the youngins and weíre gonna lose in heartbreak fashion. 6-8 seed most likely. All the excitement of the Kyrie trade is down the drain. Heís gonna be doubled and tripled. Al is gonna be forced to do more than heís capable of. Same for the young guys. Gonna be real bad.
Season's gonna be long, too long to watch.
Now that a championship is
unlikely 40-1 odds I recommend that you sit back, grab a beer, and enjoy your team's ups and downs without worrying about the score. You'll enjoy the games better. For example, we played like crap last night and I had a blast watching Jaylen Brown's drives, etc.
I guess this is a key difference between the two main groups of Cs fans: some can enjoy the games even when the overall circumstances may be bad, and some can't. I'm among the latter, and I think that's what's giving me trouble in relation to the Hayward injury: I'm not a fan because I like seeing young guys develop, regardless of how the team does; I'm competitive, I want my teams to win, and this team is now in line for a good bit less winning this season. We were primed to start being a real pain in Cleveland's backside, but now we'll likely be little more than a mildly annoying speedbump on their way to another Finals appearance.
I am excited to watch the kids grow. Tatum and Brown will be relied on for major contributions which is exciting, but this really knocks us 2 years backwards. Not a real threat to Cleveland and just gunning to win a playoff series or 2.
yup.....whole year of our stars contract down the hole.
Gordon Hayward is a star? Like one of those dim ones that is really hard to see? How many stars are there in the NBA? 30+?
Joking. Kinda. I think he's a good/not great player. Prob. top 25, in my eyes. ESPN put him at 20. On their list, I would take the following lower ranked players over him: Porzingis, Griffin, Kyrie, Millsap, Marc Gasol, IT, Whiteside. I know this is very debatable, so I'll give you top 20.
I know it is easier to get an All Star appearance here or there, but I wouldn't call Hayward a star. I'll leave that designation for All NBA players (top 15), and superstars are top 5 in the league, in my book.
I think that Gordon is good at mostly everything, but not great at anything. According to my eyes, I think Kyrie is our only star, and Tatum/Brown have a chance to become future stars.
