Yeah like I said I always expected it to be a pretty meh line-up, and with the crazy prices for a half decent seat I was never really interested in going to see a meh line-up, but my issue is with the fact they advertised and threw around a lot of superstar names when selling the tickets, so to come out with this is a complete rip off and I genuinely think refunds should be an option although I know that won't happen

Sucks for anyone who paid up big to attend

Was just reading about some recent trade talks/rumours

I saw recently that Brooklyn has now made space and has 2 max slots available after trading Allen Crabbe and I think two 1st round picks. Word is Kyrie wants to go there, but is trying to get KD to come along with him. Either way for Brooklyn to make that move and free up 2 slots suggests they might think they're a very good chance to land 2 stars

Boston is very interested in Capella. Sounds like both Boston and Houston are open to trading everyone on their lists (Bar Harden)

NOP GM is telling sides it is likely going to require a multi team deal to get what they need for AD. Lakers or Knicks are AD's first preferences, but looks like a 3 way club trade might be needed for this. Boston aren't giving up on trying to land him either

As a Sixers fan I have no worries about Boston going after AD or Capela. Neither can handle JoJo so that's a win for us.

If the Nets are going to get Kyrie and another max player that means they can't sign Russell. They also really need frontcourt help and one of their major strengths was their bench. So again, they will have to make the playoffs without KD for most of the season and an often injured Kyrie, I think that helps us again.

Recent word I heard is that Butler is now likely to stay at Sixers, so you'd have to be happy about that if that eventuates

Sounding like it could be an Achilles tear for KD, and there's potential that it could be a 12 month injury

Whether you like him or not, that's a horrible outcome for him and the game in general

Absolutely terrible, reckon he will re-sign with the Warriors now.

Draymond in risk of getting suspended with 1 more tech...Ibaka, now's your time to irk someone till they respond, greatness awaits you.  :P

Hah, you're a betting man - have you seen any bookies offering odds on him getting his 7th tech?  ;D

As for KD, if he is indeed out for 12 months I think the rest of the trade period might not be as exciting as it was looking to be, because he was the guy that all the other dominoes were going to fall around. I was watching a show last night and they said there's already a line of teams that will offer KD the max even if he's out for 12 months, so I guess it just comes down to him and whether or not he feels he has unfinished business and stays, or decided to move on and earn even more next season for basically just doing a whole lot of rehab

Agree, think the whole off season will be more of a fizzer now with KD missing the next season essentially.

if KD is out for the year and stays i still think its pretty interesting.

it means the warriors are now beatable anyway if they are carrying a injured KD.

Kyrie is still likely moving, AD will be moving so there will still be things happening. Teams will think they can contend for the championship now.

I would think KD would take his one year player option, rehab with the Warriors for a year, then sign a big max contract with whoever he wants the following year.

just a crazy thought

if you the warriors do you want KD to leave?

like they havent won without KD but that might not be because they lost KD  as opposed to them just losing a max contract level player.

like if you put Jimmy Butler or Kemba on this team (different player so not perfect example) i think they still win.

Steph, Klay, Draymond, Iggy and Boogie - I don't think Kemba/Butler etc changes much at all. Without KD they are still an excellent team, but they are beatable. With KD nobody is beating them

What's the benefit of KD taking his player option, doing a year of rehab at GSW and then leaving for a max elsewhere? Sounds like a pretty scummy thing to do - why not just go elsewhere right now and do rehab there, on even more money and without dicking around GSW for 12 months?

If he stays at GSW, surely it has to be for several years, not just to do rehab then leave

I feel so sorry for KD, and don't get me wrong, I didn't like it when he joined the Warriors either, but ever since he did, all he's been told is he's soft, weak, can't beat them, join them, joined a 73-9 team, his rings mean nothing etc., and he's shown he cares what people think with him arguing with random trolls on Twitter, so many people believe his legacy is ruined for what he did.

What better way to restore it than to miraculously come back from injury when your team needs you, is down 3-1 in the finals, and lead them to their 3rd straight title while only being the 2nd team ever to come back from that deficit, the 1st being the very same team he joined? There were already people saying he was soft, weak, wasn't there for his teammates because he wasn't playing, which is bullshower, players' health should always be the first priority, and only fools think players should risk their health and well-being and go out and play even if they shouldn't. He felt the pressure and he gave in to it, and so did the organisation, there's no doubt in my mind he shouldn't have played, if the Warriors were up 3-1 then neither him or Looney would've been out there. You can't fault KD's heart for wanting to go out there and be with his teammates while not being 100%, but the organisation, the doctors, who ever gave the all clear for KD to play should be ashamed of themselves. Whether he would've stayed with the Warriors or not if he didn't get injured, we've been robbed of 12 months and potentially the prime of one of the best players of this generation, well done.

This is perfect from Jalen Rose: https://twitter.com/FirstTake/status/1138461364542955522

Or just sign the max with GSW.

Agree Tom

I watch First Take every night, and Jalen was great last night

I also think that what GSW's GM said was right on the money too - that KD is a genuinely great guy who always puts the team first, but he is also misunderstood from the outside due to what we see, eg/ twitter wars etc

KD is easily my most favourite active player to watch, so it's a real shame that he will be out for 12 months, and who knows if it impacts him for the rest of his career too - history suggests it will
