We have no means of getting him anyway. 

 

If we miss out on Kyrie and he ends up on the Knicks I'm gonna be pretty annoyed.

We would have to trade a lot more than our pick to get him. Chances are Cleveland will just let his contract run its course and he will go FA. They will have some dumb idea that he will resign.

Well he'll be restricted so unless he takes a one year deal when his rookie contract is up, I think he'll be there for a while unless they trade him.

All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving was taken out with 7:32 remaining in the third quarter and finished with 11 points as the Cavaliers lost their sixth consecutive game, tying their longest losing streak of the season.
 
Anderson Varejao was the only starter to play in the fourth quarter as Miles, Anthony Bennett, Matthew Dellavedova and Dion Waiters got the Cavaliers back in the game.
 
"They definitely deserved to be on the floor," Irving said. "That second group did a heck of a job. You have to give a whole bunch of credit to them. If I were the coach, I would have played that second group as long as he did."
 
"Maybe we can learn something from what that group did on the floor," Cleveland coach Mike Brown said. "They played the right way."

I'm guessing when Mike Brown says "we" he means a word that rhymes with 'we' and sounds like 'Kyrie'.

Mike Brown and Kyrie have this ongoing feud and it's gonna end up ugly for both of them.

Kyrie is only 21, and he acts like it. "Im on a bad team so I'm gonna chill until I can leave"

MB benching Kyrie won't change anything in this situation. Kyrie doesn't really want to win a few games on a losing team. Hell, I'm not sure he really wants to play at all anymore. The Cavs won't trade him though, they're still in denial of LeBrons departure. Dan Gilbert is still trying to figure out why Bron left.

For the same reasons Kyrie is going to leave. 

I wonder what font Dan Gilbert will use when he does.

This has got to be some of the most straight up bull[expletive] I've ever heard. Talk about being pc & trying to protect his image to the media. If you only watched this interview and knew nothing else, you would think Mike Brown was practically Kyrie's own loving Father and the Cavs were a happy go great chemistry bunch.

What Kyrie needs to do is to play so great and be the point guard so great that we can look at the Cavs and say they are losing because he has no help and is doing everything he can but doesn't have enough.

But they do have enough and Kyrie isn't helping them elevate their game, he needs to learn this. He's a point guard, he needs to play like one.   Watch what CP3 did with the hornets.

Ehh never been on the Kyrie hypetrain.  He is very talented but so are other guys.  Nothing really special about him IMO.

yeah but Kobe came out there trying to win every game.  Never once did he check out or try to outperform the team like he was so above being there. 

Kobe no matter how he feels about a coach or a system will do everything in his power to win and under Mike Brown he was one of the hardest working players out there.

Kyrie on the other hand is pouty and just trying to prove he's better than the Cavs while not trying to lead them anywhere and got rightfully benched. 

I wouldn't be surprised if the locker room applauded Brown cause they finally got to playing and trying once their checked out leader was gone.

Kyrie is really starting to look like another Dwight.  But without the leading his team to the finals and even Dwight "tried" before the back injury. 

1. We had a contending roster. Kobe, Nash, Dwight....Cavs have nothing close to that.

 

2. Kyrie is a young. He can always mature....give him a good coach and he will, not some trash like MB. Why hire a guy that you just fired? lol

He doesn't really have any help, besides maybe Deng now.

So you're comparing Kyrie to the best PG in basketball(for a while now)?

Give me Kyrie all day.

When you're the POINT GUARD it is your job to help all those guys around you get better shots, it's your job to make that team better and it's your job to set the tempo.


Kyrie disengages himself from the game completely, it has nothing to do with the help around him.   He ignores when guys are on streaks and goes 1 on 5 when there are guys wide open, will shoot the ball 20 times and make 6 of them and plays "I'm better than this" basketball. 

Kyrie isn't helping matters NOR is he leading the team in any way shape or form.  That is the problem, not his supporting case.  it starts with him, and if he really doesn't care or is gonna play passive like he really doesn't give a darn why should his teammates?    It's no coincidence that they played better after brown Benched him.   

Kyrie let himself get outplayed by Farmar for 20 points in the first half, that has nothing to do with his supporting cast.

Sounds like a young Kobe at times.....

 

Give him a good coach and good place to grow. aka bring him to LA (get a new coach here)

Kobe tried to win regardless of how he felt and gave 500% effort at all times.   Can't say the same about Kyrie.

He also failed with that team for 3 years and only kept improving as a player. And then after winning still wasn't satisfied and played through dark times pushing himself to the brink to get his team to the playoffs. Kyrie doesn't seem to have that discipline or leadership in him.

Also had Jerry Buss as his owner and not one of the worst bball owner, Dan Gilbert. Those dark times was when Kobe was older and matured more.

 

Bring him here (with a new coach, not MDA here) and he will mature and adjust.

In all honesty Irving could literally act out and be just completely detrimental to this team in more ways than now and it wouldn't affect him in any way really as far as interest or getting paid. Plenty of NBA teams will want him, which is unfortunate because he knows this and most likely enables him to act like in this manner.
