I agree with the OP, Kyrie being traded is a foregone conclusion at this point.

My only gripe with Kyrie is he became a bit of a ball hog at a point when the Celtics started losing, after that great start. That doesn't work with the Celtics. They must have ball distribution and even scoring to be successful. With Rozier, they are back to doing exactly that. So Rozier must be doing something right. Kyrie is watching and absorbing all this. Maybe he's getting the message.

Ainge has some serious decisions to make in the off season. Perhaps whatever happens in the playoffs will be a factor. So far, so good. And the cap situation is always a determining factor.
TP for a great post.

He technically can be, but honestly I doubt that team is winning it all. But with Kyrie instead, you definitely can. That's honestly the difference.

Yeah, me too. I love Rozier, but man, Kyrie is one of the most accomplished young stars in the league, next to Davis. Obviously not the same level as transcendent as AD, but he's a:
  • 5 time All-Star
  • NBA Champion
  • All-Star MVP
  • All-NBA level PG
  • USA representative
  • USA Basketball Male Athlete of 2014

That's not a bad list for a 26 year old who has played a considerable portion of his career on absolutely trash Cavs teams

Yet again, Rozier with another mediocre road playoff game.

Who needs Kyrie though??  ::)

It’s almost as if DA went for a guy who could create points from nothing whenever he wants for a reason!

Rozier would be a nice player in Phoenix or Sacramento but in Boston know your role and get back on the bench

Kyrie is a whopping 2 years older than Embiid. IOW, still a young player who will get even better. A player who might've been 1st team all nba prior to the knee ending his season, and almost certainly was no worse than 2nd team all nba.

Can't discern why anyone wants to trade him, other than the bitter remnants of the IT fan club.

Very simple. Trade Kyrie and the Sac pick to PHX for their pick, draft Ayton, sign Baynes and Smart and you money left over for scary Terry.  All while staying under the cap.

People on this site should stop being so emotionally attached to players.

The reason I fell in love with the Celtics way back when was a growing emotional attachment to their players - all those 'Old Champions' who were counted out in '69 and won anyway. Then the Celtics of the 70's came along and I was completely smitten. They remain my favorite championship group with Cowens being 'The Love of my Basketball Life.'

Emotionally attached ? [dang] right I am.

Russell - Cowens - Bird - Garnett
