Are we really going to have a new thread asking about Kyrie's performance after every single game??
When they lose and Kyrie struggles, "I'm worried about Kyrie", after a solid game in a win, "Thoughts on Kyrie?".
After Game 5 of the season, "did we just win/lose the Kyrie trade already"
I was thinking the same. It's senseless.
I rarely make threads but this is such a polarizing topic on the forum because of how much we all loved IT. I don't disagree with you guys. Maybe I should have renamed the thread "Kyrie playing within the system" or something like that. I felt like posting the thread because I was interested in people's reactions after an ugly win. If Kyrie had played a great game then there wouldn't have been anything from me.
I see value in all of the little things that build team chemistry. As I mentioned before, Kyrie is making a concerted effort at adapting his game to Brad's system. I was interested to hear the sentiment from the rest of the board. Judging from the responses there is a group of people that want Superstar Kyrie every night and wont have the patience to let this play out.
Oh when I said that, I didn't mean it as a personal attack against you for creating the thread or anything. Apologies if it sounded that way.
It's just, as you say, it's such a polarizing concept to talk about (the trade itself, the characters of Isaiah and Kyrie, etc. etc.), and it does get kind of annoying when you hear many posters on here change their tune after each game. ("He's a superstar!", then after a bad game, "who is this guy..." lol)
It was an ugly win, and Kyrie wasn't fantastic but he did solid, and did play a part in that 4th quarter which helped to win the game. Good steps and hopefully a start for Kyrie in this system. It will take time for him to adjust, that is true.
