Same sports talent agency that handles KD.

If we land AD and Kyrie, I hope we retain Lonzo in the trade. Would be exiting to see him lobbing passes to AD and Kyrie could still be a ball dominant shooting guard.


That would literally be the most talented team in the NBA on both sides.

Lonzo/AD defensively
Kyrie/LeBron offensively

But sadly, NOP knows that Lonzo and Zion would be box-office GOLD so I don't see a situation in which they don't REQUIRE Lonzo in an AD trade...

Kyrie hasn't been planning to come.
Maybe he changes his mind now with KD out and the warriors down.
But doubt it

I think he wants the north east

Dunno, seems like the balance of power between the two conferences is shifting again to the East. Does Kyrie really want to be on the 3rd or 4th best team in his DIVISION?

It appears Kyrie Irving knows where he wants to play next season. Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald reports that Irving will look to join the Nets once free agency begins.

It was recently reported that Irving will change agencies, choosing to Roc Nation as his representation. It appears that move was calculated, as the agency is owned by Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter, a former part-owner of the Brooklyn franchise.

We are still nearly a month away from Irving’s opportunity to put pen to paper and Bulpett cautions that the point is capable of changing his mind.

There was chatter that Irving and Kevin Durant had discussed teaming up with a schism on which destination they would go to. Durant reportedly favored the Knicks, while Irving wants the Nets. There was speculation that Durant’s Achilles injury would make Irving reconsider leaving Boston, though that doesn’t appear to be the case.

Mike Greenberg on GET UP, making great points and pleading for Kyrie to join the Lakers.

Kyrie had posted a video before showing he watches the show, so hopefully he's watching this one.

I'm so conflicted with Kyrie.
He's so overrated at times.
But still a good player

He's a proven number 2 on a championship squad. That is a very valuable piece no matter how you slice it. Plus, he can get you big buckets in the fourth giving you the clutch factor.

Yea, that's the hope.
BTW, besides the 3 pointer in the Finals, do you recall other times he was clutch off the top of your head? I didnt keep up with all the Cavs/Celtics games, so I dont know.

Kawhi is more crazy talk. Why would a guy who just carried his team to a championship go play with a guy who couldn't even carry his team to the playoffs. And I believe Kawhi missed more games than lebron this season.

I think he would be great if he csn stay healthy. Especially if he plays with AD and Lebron. He can penetrate, iniate the offense, score from anywhere.

Last 2 seasons combined averages
24.1 PPG (49.0 FG%/40.0 3P%/90.0FT%)
5.7 APG
3.6 RPG
1.2 SPG
2.5 TOPG

He also barely turned 27.

His best yrs are still ahead of him. But I see it wasted away in New Jersey. If he's smart, he would swallow his pride and get some chips with Bron and AD.

No one's about to vote another player over LeBron for Finals MVP, and LeBron wouldn't allow it either.

Honestly believe Kyrie is off the board for the Lakers now, seems that he wants to settle for home grown roots in NJ w/Nets.

It would be great to get him on the team especially if we sign with AD, then we're solid for a few years.

However I think Kawhi just proved to the entire league that a 3-headed monster isn't necessarily the key ingredient to winning an NBA Championship.
