“When an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.”

But, but, but...Business Insider is REAL news.  Facebook, Google, et al wouldn't lie to us that BI is trustworthy would they?   ;)

sports is big business.  Now if you want to claim that the writer is a lifelong Knicks fan and thus lacks some credibility on this sort of thing, that is a different matter.

This is what I call "meta-news".  Take information from other news sources and create synthetic collateralized debt obligations from risky homeowners' loans.

It's already been reported that ALL of the chatter is coming from Butlers side. So maybe the chatter from Butlers camp is legit.

Given the number of posts and threads that we've had on the subject, I'd say that the chatter is indeed "substantial."

Knicks fan writing in dog days of summer. Not much to see. If we were seeing this stuff next April I would worry

Exactly. The chatter is substantial because there is a significant portion of people talking about.

It's not complete insanity to think Kyrie might head to go play with Butler somewhere. They are clearly best bros and Butler has already turned down an extension with the TWolves.

I know C's fans are super defensive and protective about this but it's not like Kyrie has any ties to Boston. He's played a single season here and not even the playoffs. I guess fans just like the idea of having a "superstar" in Boston, but it's not 100% he's staying, which is fine.

C's can draft someone like Reddish to take the lead guard spot in the future and extend Scary Terry. It's not the end of the world if he leaves..

Not sure if anyone mentioned this already, but ESPN has a "summer forecast" piece out today that asks various analysts where Irving, Butler, and Durant will play next season. Amazingly they give a slightly higher probability that Irving is on the Knicks (46.9%) than he is on the Celtics (43.8%).

People who write online about sports are generally huge fans of clicks, and there's no bigger online fan base than Knicks fans.  God love 'em.

Yeah I'd say it's 50/50 right now could change depending on several factors, if NY can get under the cap etc. If it looks like Kyrie is leaning that way at the deadline, you maybe move him for their unprotected pick and a player.
