I swear you would be of more use to me if I skinned you and turned your skin into a lampshade, or fashioned you into a piece of high-end luggage. I could even add you to my collection.

I don’t know why there was a point where people thought KD being active on Twitter was a bad thing. He’s absolutely roasting Scottie Pippen and it’s pretty great.

You're forgetting his burner accounts.

Nets trying to trade Kyrie. Are the Sixers suckers enough to make that Simmons swap?

I think the recency bias is getting to people a bit too much with Simmons, he was pathetic in that last series but dude is elite at every facet of basketball aside from one, he's basically Draymond Green with handles (and an unwillingness to shoot, which Dray doesnt have to his detriment), its just that people expect him to be a superstar. Also he's being played out of position.

I agree with the general point you are making. Kyrie is still a billion times more valuable in playoffs than Ben Simmons. For a team trying to win it all next year, the youth is basically meaningless.

Idk Harden-Harris-KD-Simmons is a pretty nasty 4 man that has more than enough shooting/creation to make Simmons' only flaw kinda irrelevant.

Simmons in the Bruce Brown role except he's a 6'10 DPOY candidate seems like a positive. And Kyrie is never healthy + 5 years older.

I agree in a vacuum for sure, Kyrie is an elite bucket getter, but i... kind of love the fit of Ben as a 3rd option to Durant and Harden, just as far as skillsets go. Hes ideal to put next to Harden to guard elite perimeter players, can run the offense with Harden out, can play the 4 when Durant is out, can focus on his elite skillsets and not have to worry about scoring since hed play with the two best scorers of this generation. Idk i dont hate it at all. No idea if he'd be better or worse than Kyrie there, but I just think he's a good fit with KD/Harden.

Also Kyrie/Embiid would be a lot of fun.

Embiid's knees probably have 3-5 years left, they gotta do everything they can.

For me it’s simple. With KD, if you have 1 of Kyrie or Harden healthy you are probably winning the title. If KD goes down, you still have a shot. Swap Kyrie for Simmons, if either KD or Harden misses games you’re cooked.

Shit happens in the NBA. Being able to withstand that stuff is crucial. Kyrie can scale up and down depending on what you need from him. Ben Simmons, at the highest level, clearly cannot without massive improvement.

I wouldn't have said this maybe 5 months ago but the Nets shouldn't hedge on being a Tier S offensive team for more defense. Offense is just substantially more important in the NBA right now and in general teams are better off leaning into their strengths.

But also KD's not letting them trade Kyrie so it's a moot point.

Every Clipper game has 5x too many Steve Ballmer shots. No one gives a shit about Steve Ballmer.
