So, you hate KD for being a " selfish, lazy egomaniac", but you'd welcome Kyrie onto your team? 

 

 

Interesting.

Jeez, you'd be happy with Kyrie on your team that already has chemistry issues?? 

 

Oops, OldSchoolVikes beat me too it. 

Let me be clear: the only I'd want kyrie because I have a small morsel of hope that, by returning to LeBron, and going to a team with two solid primary options, Irving will take a humility check. Everything I said in that post about KD can (and does) apply to Kyrie. I just hope that getting Westbrook off of the team would lessen the chemistry issues, and I'm praying that Kyrie takes a long look in the mirror. I'm also hoping that whatever semblance of a relationship Irving and James have left would lead to some temporary temporance. All of this is unlikely, though, and I am prepared for the media crapshow this will become.

 

TL;DR: Kyrie and KD are relativley similar, and I am only accepting Irving because he wants to play for my team.

Sports > Logic.

I'm so sick of KD. Like, I am genuinely tired of hearing "news" about him.

 

Kevin Durant is cool because people used to be like "those NBA players are thugs in a thug league!" but Durant is no thug, he's a myspace theatre kid who happens to be like seven feet tall. He just sits on the internet writing "no one told me this is how it would feel to find out who my real friends are..." at 2 in the morning. Go mope at a bonfire!

There's some podcast he does and I hear the commercials all the time on the crappy Audacy app.  It basically consists of some guy being "so how you do you prepare - how do you get in a zone when you're facing a great player" and KD is like "it's like, a'ight, you know, a'ight, let's see what you got.  I'm like a'ight, let's go.  A'ight, OK, a'ight, and that's what sepatetes the great from the elite.  I don't even get worried, I'm just like a'ight".

 

That's nearly verbatim.  And then the cohost does the unnatural laugh where it's more of a laugh where the back of the tongue is touching the roof of his mouth (basically the "rap laugh") then calms down and is like "whoah, yeah that's why you the man".

Let's give KD some credit here -- an athlete lacking any insight is nothing new, but his taste for exceptionally whiny quotes and Twitter fights are kind of above and beyond. I just had the image of him calling into Boston talk radio and trying to disguise his voice and nearly puked. It'll put the burner account thing to shame. No way any of this is a good idea.

Damn. Losing Bill Russell is definitely not the news I expected to wake up to. 

At least it was peaceful for him. 

 

RIP to a legend. 😥

 

He certainly has a resume I don't think any player (or coach) will ever beat.
