"I and I, I know that this is this is maybe hard to understand and hard to accept the pelicans. Do not want to do business with the lake they just don't, and I will get I tell you that that's an easy position to take the Lakers. Don't have something that you really want if the Lakers had won the lottery. We may have a different conversation, but they did not win and to make matters worse, pelicans did. So I actually think that the Knicks are in a better position to make a deal for Davis in the Lakers are because the difference between the three pick and the phone. Pick is dramatic in this draft. And because if all things are equal, they don't want to send them to the Western Conference, and they don't want to do business with the Lakers. That's just the way it is to what I've been told Brian, why why are the Lakers team? They don't want to do business with is it simply a Western Conference thing. Or is it something else? All the Western Conference thing is absolutely a factor. Ideally, if you're going to trade, a star you do not want to send them within your conference. It's one of the strangest things about that Cairo Irving trade. Why the Cavaliers with trade one of their best players to a team that they just the playoffs. It was that was borderline insane in my mind. But I also think there's animus is absolutely animus. There's, there's some belief whether it's true or not that Anthony Davis trade demand, which derailed this last season for the pelicans was Lakers involve, and they can deny it and everything like that. But I'm just telling you the way that the pelicans, handled the talks with the Lakers was a complete transfer. A window into the what they the two franchises. Think about it. Each other, and I would say that there's probably gonna be a Cold War between these two teams for their foreseeable future. You know, when the Miami Heat when, when LeBron left Cleveland, for Miami, you know, when the next time, the Cavs did business with the Miami Heat was it wasn't it was eight years later, the first time they did a deal with them, which was to send Dwayne Wade back there, which was kind of a, a gratitude deal is not really a straight up negotiation..
Kyrie Irving's Free-Agency Countdown Officially Begins Now
"Is what happens with Kyrie Irving because Kyrie Irving is now in a situation where he's going to become a free agent at the end of the season. And he's head is worse stretch of playoff basketball in his career over the last three games. The guy has literally missed forty three shots in three games. Forty three shots Janta Toco is averaging nearly thirty one points per game in this series. And Kyrie Irving is averaging twenty one and you're saying, well, yeah. Yeah. This is the better player, but Kyrie Irving is supposed to be the alpha male the Celtics team he's supposed to be the star. And he's averaging ten less points per game than the guy on the other side is and after the game when he's asked about he's shooting struggles, he said who cares? That's what kyri ever said. Who cares? We'll tell you. Everybody cares. Right everybody. That's rooting for the Boston Celtics. Everybody on your team cares. Because if you don't perform at a high level they have no opportunity to win the game. He said after he shot eight for twenty two from the field on Friday night that he didn't expect another eight for twenty two performance. He followed that up on Monday with a seven of twenty two performance after game three he called himself, a basketball genius a basketball genius. That just so happened to miss how many shots v. Fifteen in the last game. He played them. But Cairo is telling us all that. He is a basketball genius. And for all the things that have happened this year with Kyrie Irving and the Celtics organization he's called out his teammates multiple times. He said the young guys aren't ready to win a championship yet. And to that I would say kyri you're not exactly ready to championship as the alpha dog yet. You could do it when you're playing side kicked. Lebron James, right? It's like those motorcycles with little sidecars. Kyrie was in the sidecar. You can do it as the guy in the sidecar. But you can't do it as the guy actually driving the motorcycle, right? Yeah. I'm able to prove that you haven't done that yet. So kyri you have not proven. You can win a championship yet as the main guy. Okay. So all the rumors all season long were about New York because kyri Irving originally said that he wants to stay with the Boston Celtics as long as the organization would have him. He did a commercial with his father where he said, I want my jersey retired in the rafters here in Boston. Right. So he said all that stuff. And then when he plays the game at Madison. Square garden. He says asked me about my free agency on July first, he also referred to the New York Knicks as a great organization, he's the first person ever to refer to the Knicks as a great organization, they have one of the worst odors and professional sports in James Dolan. But it appears that Kyrie Irving could be interested in going to the Knicks, and they are the favourite to land Kyrie Irving in free agency. So say, hypothetically, he decides to go if he follows Kevin Durant again, it would be something that is a masculine for Kyrie Irving because their whole reason he wanted out of Cleveland is he wanted his own team. Right. And he basically got the best situation to get his own team. He had to number three picks, Jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum. He had out Horford. Who's a great player? The guy's a great defender. Great shooter does everything for you. Great passer at the big man position. So you had a great roster around you, and you were unable to take advantage of that as the guy. So maybe Cairo Irving is learning. What were you all are finding? Out is Kyrie Irving just isn't a main guy. And if he does go to New York, and he does go there to play with his good, buddy. Kevin durant? What would that be saying? He would actually be admitting. What we've all been asking about. Kyrie Irving is can you actually carry a team because if you go there to play with Kevin Durant? Sorry kyri. Kevin durant? The best player on the team. That's pretty damn obvious. So you'd be going there to be Kevin Durant sidekick you'd be getting back in that little small seat in the motorcycle alongside Kevin Durant. Just like you were doing with the Brian James. So you'd actually be admitting that you were wrong about yourself. You were wrong that you could carry a team to a high level to an NBA championship caliber level. You'd actually be admitting that but moving forward with this thing say hypothetically that they get Kevin Durant and Kyrie goes to play with his friend because he can't carry his own team. He goes there. Then the question becomes if the Knicks are able to win the draft lottery. Would they be willing to go all in and make another big move? Because what the Knicks could do which is amazing to me to even fathom this. The Knicks have been one of the worst run organizations in sports they've given out bad contract after bad contract. James Dolan has been a mess off the court the issues, which is Oakley. It goes on and on right? There's been so many issues with the New York Knicks. Okay. This team that was so dumb. Carmelo Anthony only wanted to play for the New York Knicks. He was in the final Ervin's contract. And you got it your roster to trade for Carmelo Anthony when he would have signed with you in the off season. Anyway. Okay. This is that same organization this organization could in a couple of months land to stars in Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant. Just because they're located in New York and just because they play in Madison Square Garden. It's kind of like the Dallas Cowboys like players want to play for him. Not that it's bringing them any high level of success. But because of the Dallas Cowboys, right? The Knicks are kind of that team like just because it's the Knicks and its New York, and it's Madison Square Garden, apparently people go there and with Kevin Durant is. It's this whole situation of well. I'm never going to get the credit. I properly deserve in Golden State, or at least. I'm never going to get the credit. I think I deserve. So if I go to New York, and if I carry a team there, maybe I will win back the fans that left me saying it was a cowardly moved to go to Golden State. So you have two guys at grumpy, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Then the question becomes if you win this lottery. Are you going after Anthony Davis do because that's the next good legitimately? Do. That would be the best piece that anybody anybody in the league could offer the New Orleans pelicans, the number one pick in the draft, which would mean, essentially the rights design Williamson. Okay. So you could have that if you're the New Orleans pelicans. That's why they made the right move the whole time I've been trying to say this by taking the Lakers deal because now Philadelphia maybe they become involved. They put Ben Simmons in this thing. We know the Celtics could offer Jason Tatum. Jalen brown. If say, hypothetically that they think that Kyrie irvings gonna stay. So there's that package out there. The Lakers packages still. There. There will be mystery teams that come around in this thing and Zion. Williamson out of all the stuff that people could offer. He would be the most attractive piece that anybody could offer. So the Knicks out of pure ineptitude. The Knicks pure incompetence could actually have the best trading piece to pick up a third superstar to pair hypothetically with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. They've been so bad that somehow this could result in them this summer landing Kevin Durant's, kyri Irving. Anthony davis. Because of the fact they've been so bad like Kevin Durant going to New York. It's not like he's going to a winner. Right. That's part of the reason he can leave golden safe for New York is essentially what he's saying is. Yeah, I'm going to place. It hasn't won since Phil Jackson was a player ongoing place. That's desperate for a winter. Like he can actually sell going to New York because it hasn't wanted a high level the franchise he can actually sell that. That's a selling piece for him to go to New York to win fans back, and you know, the Kevin Durant. The second he signs on the dotted line or the second. He releases something whatever like the player's Tribune. Or something the second. He does that. He is a hero in New York. He's a hero in New York. Okay. And it's all because of this organization's incompetence they've been so bad that Kevin ranker justify going there. They were so bad this year that they could have the number one pick in the draft which they could either use on Williamson who's the best prospect since Anthony Davis or they could use. I n Williams to trade four Anthony. Davis depending on what kyri Irving and what? Kevin Durant could hypothetically what could hypothetically want. Now, if I was New Orleans that would be the easiest trait of my life. Okay. So Anthony doesn't wanna player he has an opt-out after this year. He's going to be a free agent next summer. You're telling me that you're gonna give me Zion. Williamson I could get Zion. Williamson who is the best prospect since this guy Davis that we Drake that we drafted years ago. Okay. Yes. Sign me up for that one. But man, I got to tell you this. And I understand that the Knicks. There's not really a reason to hate them because they haven't been good in a while. But would kyri Irving and Kevin Durant pairing be like the most unlikable pairing in the NBA? This would be worse than the Dwayne Wade. Chris Bosh, LeBron James pairing, right or the trio if you will because that was the reason people hated that trio wasn't because Dwayne Wade was dislike -able it wasn't. Because Chris Bosh was dislike it was. Because of the fact of how they did it, right? Lebron did the whole decision thing. And then they had that. Press conference where they came like out of the ground. And the bronze said not one not two not three that championship thing. Right. So that's why that team became dislike -able, but this team in New York would be dislike -able because of the guys. Right. They hate the media. They go after everybody they seem like they feel like they're victims. Right. We've seen with Kevin Durant time after time where he thinks that he's a victim. Same thing with Kyra. Kyrie Irving thinks he's a victim like Cairo serving. Also, there's no accountability. Kyrie Irving the guys not accountable for anything the other night when he misses twenty two shots. He said I wish I took thirty the guys not accountable. He talks about the shooting woes. He says, I'm not worried. There's no accounting. There's no I haven't played well in this series. I have to play better on the reason. We're losing I have to be better on the leader of this. There's none of that. There's no accountability whatsoever. When his team is struggling during the regular season. What does he say the young guys don't know what it takes to win a championship? So there's no accountability with Cairo Irving, everything that happens to Cairo Irving. That goes against his legacy that works in a negative manner. He tries to spin it in a way that it's the media's fault. He blamed the media for the Celtics locker room issues. He said the media tries to rip apart locker rooms kyri. You're the guy that's called out the young guys. You're the guy that got in the coaches face after he called the play for somebody else. You're the guy that yelled at Gordon Hayward on the court for passing Jason Tatum. When he was wide open at the end of the game against the magic this year. When Tatum was trying to win the game. You're the guy that did all that. You're the guy that has had a bad effect on the locker room. You're the guy that said you can't wait around for Jalen Brown. You're the guy that did all this. And he had the DASS ity to blame the media to blame the media for trying to destroy his locker room when he was doing all that stuff internally. He had the gumption to say something along those lines. And also you factor in remember when hiree Irving and Kevin Durant were at the all star game. And there was that video that emerged where it looked like Kyrie was saying to max lots and then Kyrie Irving when in. Hey reporter, I should say here in Boston. The Boston Herald Stevo pet gave him the opportunity. He said, hey, you wanna kinda pour water on that? Because that video had leaked out. There any said that you guys just do this for the likes and clicks. And this guy Steve pet that didn't tweet video didn't even write about the video and was just asking Cairo to comment on it in Cairo Irving said you guys just do this for the likes in clicks. He said, do you think this is what the fans care about this exactly what the fans care about? If you're gonna leave the fans actually really do care about that. That's why Kevin Durant free agency and your free agency. And Anthony Davis is trade destination. Those have been like the hottest topics in the NBA season. So Mike God that team with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant who had faked Twitter accounts. So he could go after fans fans that were criticizing him for leaving for Golden State two years later, he was still upset about that to the point where he put on Twitter that it's because it was Russ and nobody else around like that's why he left it. He'd. Didn't have enough around him to win a championship. He felt the need to defend himself on Twitter to just the random person that was tweeting at him. He made up a fake burner Twitter account. So that he could attack fans. Okay. Those two guys would be teaming up and possibly they team up with Anthony Davis who used to be likable. But now Anthony Davis says on LeBron show the shop that he couldn't believe after he asked for a trade that the fans booed him. He's like I poured seven eight years in there. And I go out there. And they me Anthony you ask the organization for a trade.

"The urge to criticize Cairo Irving and the urge to criticize leadership in general. When it's presented is very easy. And I'm reminded of at times the way that I wouldn't say we give LeBron James a pass. But I think we look at things through a different lens with him. Because we understand what comes along with being LeBron James I said for a long time when you were a child prodigy, and that's what he was your socialized different. And I don't think you truly get a lot of the same social cues as everyone else, and that goes to an extent for a lot of high level athletes who are pushed through and get a pass on a lot of things leading up to their time in the limelight that ultimately shapes the way, they handle events like this. But for Kyrie Irving, someone who was a guy that felt slighted by the leadership on his team for Cairo Irving, a guy who did feel like LeBron James at the time was too. To hard on them said things publicly that bothered him. You are a little more critical. When all of the sudden, the shoe is on the other foot, and we see this all the time. This isn't limited to sports you see this in your workplace, you see this in your school that the minute someone who was once under the boot gets a little bit of power. It's amazing how quickly they start wearing the same sort of clothes and wearing the same sort of attitude that the person who was formerly the bother to them did. So you see that turnaround in for Cairo Irving. Maybe that realization that comes now is for the better because tyrod serving has enjoyed having the microphone in his face in Boston. He's a guy who left for all of it. He left for every bit of what comes with being the star. And being the leader again in that spot in this time getting to do it as a champion not getting to do it as the former number one overall pick in Cleveland who didn't win anything of note until the Bron James came back. That's always a difficult part of this. Kyrie Irving with more details on the conversation between him and LeBron or actually less. Relax. Good. Okay. Because we bring O'Brien, of course, it brings. When did you? After the Orlando became into Orlando. But he say to you when you talk to them, obviously, our conversation private, I give you a great, okay? Conversation like, so there was just a lower responsibility that I had to take young player in their shoes and understanding where our young guys are, and how much responsibility I have to help teach them things and help them do little things which I am. I asked here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app leadership at times is learning. How to listen.

"Stay healthy for a full season now you sixty five games out of kyrie and he's healthy for the playoffs i'm the happiest guy in the world but i think knowing danny aines and the way that danny ainge operates i'm not sure danny ainge would want to extend kyrie irving right now because i'm not sure danny ainge feels like that's the best thing for this team until kyrie can prove that he's healthy and he's ready to come back and operate at the same level that he left us last year and if you get that kyrie back then rest assured celtics fans if kyrie really is in it for the money which is apparent to anybody that listened to what kyri had to say in that press conference which was a really strange strange press conference but if you listen to him he didn't say that he's not interested in resigning with the celtics he said he's not signing this off season he was very specific about that and simply comes down to dollars that's all an eighty million dollars is game changing money it is life changing money even for somebody like kyrie irving that's made so much money in his career so you look at cairo irving and you say to yourself ok well if he's money motivated that's great because that's really the motivation than the celtics do have the upper hand then the likelihood is that he wants to resign here and he will resign here because he's not going to leave forty million dollars on the table by signing somewhere else and with his injury history it's in kyrie's best interest to take that additional year that additional year of guaranteed money guaranteed contract.

"Bench got guards out occurs medics yahoo sports here on the right tab of thought about the celtics as they try to figure out what to do without gordon hayward college trial and error to be honest i mean it it it it's brad stevens just basically growing everybody out there i mean abdel later you know that the second game of the season was getting first player off the bench uh but if that would that be league mvp a year ago i mean this they're trying to hold bunch comparable though they way the heated with a critical you got pretty clear idea of how they want to play they spend a lot of capital uh in practice time figuring out the best ways otc lake gordon hayward in cairo irving play well together look going through plays on certain things tyree called me a couple of good order carter fees and he was basically kitty about somebody off the officer said that he had hayward or get a run that with regard yet you don't actually not to revoke the whole thing because a lot of the players still there but it's an entirely different way of play when you were cooperating you know a twenty year old jason tatum are a clear old jaylen brown twenty a nineteen year old jason tatum etkin can krypton rotation player he's gonna take you week or maybe even a couple of work operative team to really figure out what it's like kennedy is ostensibly an during that time i think they're really gonna have uh some struggles of our group games like for example you saw against goodell pierre what they really couldn't pick at the robert though do you have the buses secondbest team in the east i'll be honest i mean i i think the bucks might be the best in the you know i i know that eclac sacrilege to pick against cleveland if it's quite but local ended up the preseason i thought the cavs what their lack of athletico's of in the backcourt was going to.

"Was going to contend with the cavs now go no gordon hayward irving's got that all on his shoulders now it's tough and this is not what he expected now so you saw him in game one i thought played it passed it first half luke warlike a point guard trying to get guys evolve and then had his moments in the fourth quarter in that game at cleveland the other night with the emotional toll of what they had seen in all of that now they come home any play this game and you could see how he felt the burden tonight of trying to do everything offense for this team he takes 25 shots of seven for twenty five for the field had a lot of force possessions in the second half of this game they don't really have another guy on their team that's an offense of creator that's what they were counting on at gordon hayward because there are possessions kyran could start off a one side of the floor maybe draw trap swing it out it was supposed to go to the other side of the four gordon hayward who could then attacking create weather for himself or somebody else they don't really have that in on the nightly basis solid gains out of jail a brown new might be the most improved player so far for what i've seen marcus smart hour for those guys are going to have nights but not with the consistency the take the pressure off of cairo irving and tonight at home first game in boston key try to do a little bit to watch in the second half offensively and he had some really got possessions turnovers four shots as a result they crumble down the stretch but walkie look like the poised team with expectations that shearwall boston right now is still trying to figure out how they are going to play because they're dealing with a serious loss of a guy that they thought it was going to be at allstar for them and give them their second star they'll have now they're going to have to really figure this out on the fly but for milwaukee a great opening statement on the road that this might be a top four seve or higher in.

"I think contribute to cairo irving unhappiness right now so he determined that there's no way to fix that unhappiness with kyw ry then i think they have to figure out okay what direction are we going to go when it comes to trading retiree in what are we going to want back because the cavs are in a position the where they're looking to win now they're looking to get back to the final for the fourth straight year they're looking to also trying to appease lebrun make him happy and keep him pr on this upcoming season so that would lead you to believe that they're looking for guys that can help them now but at the same time when you have a star like this and you're dangling star in you're taking trade call you usually don't get start back in return you usually get younger players upandcoming players or draft pick and i think the cavs have to answer whether that is enough of the package to move on from there all star point guard you think at trade is gonna come about how you think irving has played his last game for the cavaliers i do yeah i just don't think i just don't think the things that make tyree happy are going to be the urine cleveland and i think when it out there now and it hasn't been denied from guidry and it hasn't been denied from guidry amp when it out there that tyree doesn't want to play with lebron james that he doesn't want to be in the shadow of macron anymore i think given the importance of the season steve and everything that the round the team right now i don't think they can afford to go into training camp with tyree a macron fame roster or even go into the regular season with those two guys on the day iraq there i think it is something that you have to fix before the season starred give the last thing that you want to do is introduce more drama on a team that had plenty trump to begin with an interfet indebted vitally important for the cab could not have those kinds of things as best we would lebron potentially walking in 2018 uh we're talking with chris the'door and he's with cleveland dot com chris did you see this coming about.
