    Can't wait for the Rockets to get high draft picks when the locker room explodes. Maybe they trade Kyrie and it won't blow up... But what would be the point of having a big three if they trade Kyrie? And how can this locker room exist anyhow? History repeats itself and the rockets get high picks in 23 25

    As a Nets fan, I feel like we are more than capable of winning it all. Sure we gave away a great rebounder and defender in Jarrett Allen, but all we have to do is sign another great defensive rebounder and we'll be tough enough to compete with the Lakers in the finals and finally get our revenge for what happened in 2002.

    It annoys me how players just decide to team up in a big city ex:(Lebron and Ad in La, Kawhi and Pg13 in La, KD Kyrie and Harden in NYC.) And they just bring a chip to that organization, when teams like the Nuggets build their own team by developing players and not being handed players because they are in a city like LA or New York City.

    I can tell you tried and I appreciate the message you're trying to get across but these videos are consistently littered with incorrect information dude. Kenny wasn't let go coming off of a loss, Joe harris wasn't getting little playing time, he was essentially out of the league. Brooklyn didn't get destroyed by miami, they lost in 5 after a very questionable game 5 in which lebron was exposed defensively like he never had been.

    Y’all gotta stop talking like they successfully rebuilt a team from that, like bro two of their 3 superstars came in free agency, it wasn’t a rebuild, it was the same scenario as LA. Rebuild isn’t extremely successful so they get lucky and get one free agent wh i turns into two superstars which then turns into 3. I can’t give the nets credit for something that happened because of their location.
