    If Kawhi is dead set on the Lakers there's almost no deal I'd want the Cs to make for him that involves a potential starter, and I wouldn't give up the Sac pick or the Memphis pick.

    I wonder if there is a deal Houston could make for him though, where they go all in on next season. That team would be pretty sick if they added him for one season.

    Agreed. And there's no way I'd deal a guy like Jaylen Brown for one year of Kawhi... and I think Kawhi is terrific. But I also think Jaylen is maybe 4 years away from being probably 90% as good as Kawhi.

    Absolutely ridiculous that a fired coach bringing back essentially the same roster gets CoY over Brad.

    This award is a joke anayway, no team had a better 3-4 year stretch than Stevens, yet he has nothing to show for. Casey is not a bad coach, but to be honest I thought multiple coaches did a better job (CBS, Snyder, maybe Spoelstra). The Raps had their whole roster coming back and not many injuries to work around.

    Brad is going to get it one day, but it's more or less a W-L award. But the funny thing is, if it was adjusted since Hayward was lost due to injury, some projection models had the C's barely missing the playoffs. That's a far cry from being the #2 seed with 50+ wins. Nobody projected the Raps to win less than 55 wins. 59 was good, but not "CoY" great.

    Brad had a near complete roster turnover and lost his 2nd best player 5 minutes into the season.

    This result is pretty laughable.

    NBA.....they make it hard to like the league. Everyone wants to be part of a big team. Nobody wants to have challenges and beat your opponent. Just join together and be friends type thing. They should pass out participation medals. I don’t see Irving signing here at all. I’m just getting bad vibes on this guy. Anyone else feel the same way?

    Let’s hope so, but I’m not feeling it. Talks a lot about NY.

    WHat I read on 985 this morning didnt make me feel great. Man....he really loves New York. I really don't know, Id love to think he wants to stay but have you seen the list of free agents after next season? He could leave, recruit a bunch of them and make New York actually good. Scares me, I want Kyrie here long term, I wouldnt trade him for anyone gettable right now. Im probably biased though as he is my favourite NBA player, Celtic or non Celtic.

    I am all for not blowing our load für Kawhi if he comes without insurances. We have to remember, a package of Brown, Rozier+Sac+other picks is pretty strong and still good enough if the next star comes available. He**, we may need it IF, IF, IF (well, maybe not), becomes available.

    Nobody in Ohio is waiting on anything. Everyone in OH knows he's long gone.

    Last week?

    You really think people in Cleveland believe he's coming back? The money is irrelevant at this point. He's made way too much to split hairs over a few mill give or take. Couple that with his NBA life winding down, and his after basketball life gearing up, he'd be stupid to not go to LA. Way more post NBA opportunity for him there than in Cleveland.
