He's making it really, really easy for me. 

Why did he leave at halftime, exactly?  It doesn't seem like it was medical care -- or that medical care was even needed -- so how is that excusable?  I get that he has a lot to do with his twitter and IG, but that's not the time for it.  He then sends the team a congratulatory group text?  Seems like insult to fake injury.

It's pitiful that some of these cupcakes choose not to play with minor injuries.  Again, Baynes took a shot on a broken nose last season and just laughed it off.  IT got his tooth knocked out, picked it up, and drilled a 3 on the next possession (day after sister died).  But this is your modern NBA, folks.  A lot of these guys are incredibly soft, pampered, and selfish.

Lol what's the worst injury you ever had? Twisted an ankle once or twice? Love it when idiots come out to voice their opinions.

My senior year of high school, I played for a couple of months with a broken hand and hamstring tendon tear.  This was two weeks after my father passed away unexpectedly.
Edit: Forgot that I also had tendinitis in both wrists.

By "played" you mean you were the guy at the end of the bench furthest from the coach?

This is the NBA. You don't play injured unless it's the playoffs.

Starting PG -- sup now?  I also dated the head cheerleader.  She left me for a hockey player.

Let's please try to keep it civil here.  I shouldn't have to explain how good I was at basketball, how many injuries I played with, etc. 

IT played injury for what was likely the majority of the season, and he carried the team on his back the whole time.  What a meaningful and recent comparison.

Lol Kyrie is the better player, and anyone who disagrees, disagrees with 30 out of 30 NBA GM's.

Your salt levels are astronomical.

You talk about keeping it civil, but hating on your favorite teams best player isn't exactly usual, or something thay goes over well on blogs for fans if that team.

This team is so much better off now, than we were 6 months ago .

That is pretty much indisputable.

I doubt anyone here questions IT's toughness after what he went thru last postseason, but just to correct you his sister passed away day before playoffs started against bulls and lost his tooth in 2nd round against wizards. But still unbelievable will power from the little guy.

But I hate when people have this notion of how long a person is supposed to grieve a lost loved one or recover from an injury.. It's like you think someone has x-amount of time to come back or they're soft. Michael Kidd Gilchrist took off over a week and missed 3 games to grieve his grandmother's passing, I believe Gorman mentioned during the game, does that make him soft because he didn't play the day after like Isaiah did? People roll their ankles all the time, heck LeBron had a pretty bad one against Houston the other night and I don't think he even missed a play whereas others might not have came back in or even missed a game or 2, does that make them soft? And I mean Kyrie has a facial fracture, I can imagine the pain is pretty bad and there's no real way to get treatment on it, it's just hey try not to get hit in the face again bud.

I just think it's ridiculous to compare one person's experience to another's. We all deal with pain and grievance differently, there's no gage to go off of, cut the kid some slack..
everyone got so sensitive after 9-11... thanks alot bin laden

Wait, so because you probably either had bad advice, or was being stubborn or stupid, doing otherwise make you soft?

IT played through injury, look where he is now, cannot help his own team. Our staff got fired for mishandling several injuries, but no, it fits your narrative against Kyrie.

Your vendetta against Kyrie is so pathetic and laughable. Lots of people don't like Kyrie but they don't stoop this low.

What IT was brave and commendable, but I honestly dont encourage anyone to do that, nor I expect everyone to do it. Its your career that's on the line, dont take chances.

Bad advice, stubborn/stupid... But he also has a sense of humor and may not be serious.  He could be trolling like some people think his favorite player Kyrie does.

I'm actually putting a lot of thought and consideration into these posts.  And I'm sure there are silent posters out there that agree with some aspects of my perspective on Kyrie, the modern NBA, the IT trade, etc.  It's unfortunate that replies tend to only come from naysayers, and often in the form of personal attacks.

You're actually not. You're attempting to make a point about resting an injured franchise player in the regular season by citing what you (imo, stupidly) did against high schoolers. If this were in the finals, he'd get patched up, put a mask on and return to play. But not to beat the Hornets in game 13 of 82.

Furthermore, I believe that you have a problem with him because he's from Duke and you're a Tarheels fan. We know how that rivalry goes.

Watching McHale walk, 30 years after playing on a broken foot, keeping in mind that he never played in another Finals after that, and it's an easy call for me.

Playing hurt is one thing. Suck it up.

Playing injured, on the other hand, is just stupid.

Hope he gets well and gets a few games off.

We've built a nice early season cushion...I certainly didn't expect 11-2 after the GH injury and I'm happy.

I'd rather be safe with Kyrie (and Big Al) and give them time.

The nature of the injury matters as well, a fracture in the face could get much worse, season ending, if he gets hit again before it heals up a bit. He may even need to wear a mask when he comes back. I suspect the medical staff told IT he could play through his injury as long as the pain wasn't too bad. It's not a question of toughness, it's a question of the type of injury.

I understand not playing yet. Seems smart to be careful, especially this early in the regular season. Facial fracture sounds serious enough.

However, the leaving at halftime, the group text, then not showing up for Toronto game - I do not like any of that.

He wants to be the big dog of a team and the next great Celtic ? Then act like it.
Do what KG, Bird, Cowens and Russell would have done.

This is what I read as well. To add some further detail he was having the mask fitted and having the facial fracture looked at by a specialist to get cleared to play with it. We haven't heard anything about that consultation but assuming it went well he's good to go for Tuesday.

The only hold up is that they're concerned about a delayed concussion presenting given how hard he got hit. That would be what would hold him out of playing tomorrow afaik, he wakes up with a headache and sore neck like Horford did.

KG actually had a hard time convincing himself to attend games and sit on th team bench after his knee injury. There wer many games at first that he just did not show up to.

best part about tarheels post is that he thinks a broken face is a minor injury.

I've never heard of a "minor facial fracture" -- is that a thing?  I'm not sure I buy it as more than an excuse presented in the media to explain a guy's decision to leave a game at halftime with a bloody nose. As I stated earlier, a player currently on our roster laughed off a blow to his broken nose.  There's clearly a big difference to the way NBA players approach their profession, which was a broader point I've alluded to across several posts. 

And again, ultimately, it was poor form for him to leave the game at halftime.  But he's a "star" cupcake, and that's why it's okay.  Sorry that I'm not okay with that.
