Thumbs up Things are Starting to get Interesting in the NBA

So Kyrie Irving wants to leave the Cavs - wow! I didn't see that one coming! He is probably tired of putting up with LeBron's sh*t. If this team loses their #2 player, then they are going to have BIG PROBLEMS! He would like to get traded to one of the following clubs: Spurs, Knicks, Heat or the Timberwolves.

In order for the NBA to become more competitive in 2017/18 season, the following things need to happen:

- Irving joins Spurs

- Carmelo joins either Rockets or Thunder

Bonus:

- Durant or Curry gets injured

I'm a Cavs fan (work 5 minutes from LeBron's house, and live 15 minutes from LeBron's house), and I hate LeBron. Hate him. He is a cancer to the franchise.

With that being said, I don't blame Kyrie for wanting to leave, but depending on what the return is for Kyrie, the Cavs will actually be better without Kyrie. This team needs more of a true PG.

Yeah, a cancer to the franchise who took them to a title and three straight finals. Good luck without him.

Should have at least 2 titles by now, if he knew how to build a roster instead of making sure his boys are taken care of.

It's actually a blessing that Kyrie wants to be traded. We'll be able to get back some of the assets that Griffin moved to appease LeBron and his annoying demands.

Man, tough critic. Your franchise was in the gutter until he came back. You've been to three straight finals and won a title. I cannot believe you are knocking LeBron.

The guy held the franchise hostage in 2010, ultimately leaving us in the dust in an embarrassing way at the end of free agency. He comes back, and wins a title during his second season (should've won it the first year, but Love and Kyrie got hurt). All the while, he got all of his boys - Thompson, Shump, JR - paid, demanded Griffin get him help, and mortgaged the future. He doesn't play a lick of defense unless it's the playoffs and he can make a highlight play, he puts zero emphasis on the regular season, robbing the fans of their hard-earned money, and then flops in The Finals. And now he's holding the franchise hostage yet again by not committing to resign after this upcoming season.

There a quite a few fans calling into local sports talk shows, asking for the Cavs to trade LeBron instead of Kyrie. I'm not a Kyrie fan either, but that's how some fans feel.

Nobody goes full tilt for the whole regular season given the playoff format. Except the Warriors when they overemphasized chasing the best regular season record and then lost in the Finals. It sounds to me like you and your fellow fans would be finding fault with God if he played there. Well, he really isn't that good on the outlet pass... Lebron hardly "flopped" in the Finals. He averaged 33.6 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists per game. Some flop.

'true pg' not sure about that. I dont think avery johnson would lead a team to a championship anymore. PGs all have to hit the 'three' now. Need a 3 second rule as well on the three point line a foot or 2 behind it as well but dont get me started ... Going to see 50 threes jacked up per team eventually

The guys been to how many NBA Finals in a row? No significant injuries, plays harder than he has too in the regular season as well. The short layoff after a long Finals run is not to be discounted. Yeah who wants to play with a guy that goes to the Finals every year. Plus had to play without love and irving for one of the finals losses
