Videos out oh him shooting from three,jump rope and doing drills before games--He sure can still shoot-these videos are new-Not only happy for him and i'm glad he plays for another team because Isaiah going against bigs would give me a heart attack
Isaiah gifted us last year-i am a Kyrie guy now
IF only Isaiah had not kept up the Brinks truck routine, it was those flip flops that really turned me.
Next question ,how is the Cavs defense going to cover for him ?

When we play against CLE with IT out there it's going to be an emotional time for him.

I hope we're ready.

I expect him to bring his BEST games against us.

I look forward to seeing The Little Guy prove the naysayers wrong again.  Let's see if he and LeBron can find a way to make things more difficult for GSW in the Finals.

makes it look like the Cavs exaggerated all of IT's issues to get an extra asset from the trade

Yeah, I stated this like 10x too.  There was never an indication otherwise, and made the most sense.

Legit question for you considering your firm anti-Kyrie stance....


Would you rather the Celtics beat the Cavs in the playoffs and Irving absolutely annihilates the Cavs or the Cavs beat the Celtics in the playoffs and Thomas has an epic series, while Irving struggles badly?

I think a month ago someone asked him this similar question and he chose the Cavs winning lol.

Very possible, but lets see the IT as a on-court product first before making the call.
Also this newspapers job of sending good-vibes every now and then, doesn't help him jump higher or recover faster. It just seems like LeBron's media is trying not to lose too many fans/bandwagoner's and faith so early in the season, since as they play like...sh..Lebrons hairline.

Lol tbh I think he's been trolling us all this time.

That being said I know for a fact he didn't like the trade (I didn't either) but he had even stronger feelings about disliking it  :P

With the way, IT plays the game on an 82 game schedule. it's only a matter of time before he is knocked to the floor or falls on that hip and comes up limping. As he ages it will be a continual concern.

No team will sign him to a max deal even if he comes back 100%...the odds of him being healthy long term just are not very good.

A case can be made that he avoided surgery to continue to gain leverage over the Celtic organization as he tried to maneuver a max deal. He knew the hip as damaged, and wanted to get it operated on with a max deal to rest his head on. That's why he continued to play on it injured. 


Taking the symbolism and emotion out of the equation, the truth is we're much better set for the future with Irving.

Is he running yet?

I'm skeptical he's going to return early till we hear reports of him running up and down the court.

Would it be that crazy to choose the latter? I don't think we have nearly enough to get past GSW this season anyway, but suspect we will be challenging for the Finals as soon as next season and for several years to come.  So in that scenario, every one wins in my book.
