That is going to be a dumpster fire and the schadenfreude will be through the roof with each loss, blow-up, Kyrie press conference, etc.

I am shocked. That is crazy. This has so much potential for disaster or awesomeness.

But this is crazy. KD, the sensitive soul, Kyrie, the thoughtful psycho, and Harden, the strip club partier and flopper, together is going to yield some comedy. This, of course, assume Kyrie ever plays again.

Wow. Philly seemed to be in the lead. Levert, Allen/Prince, and a million picks/swaps?

Well Morey just bollixed that situation. He'd better hope that Simmons gets it in gear.

Nets at Houston, March 3. Harden goes for 75 or shoots 2 of 24.

Kyrie Kd harden has potential to be the most dysfunctional group of teammates since kyrie on the Celtics. And before that you’d have to go way back to kyrie on the cavs to find a group as cancerous

Durant and harden are in their 30s and you're trading/swapping picks eight years from now??? For a dude that looks like he ate Kyrie???? WTF

I suspect Brooklyn will find a way to hold it together for a season or two. Maybe they can win a championship before everything crashes and burns.

After that trade, they should change their name to Brooklyn Misfits.

Or maybe the Brooklyn Dysfunctionals.

Or even to Brooklyn Locker Room Poison.

Or why not all? The Brooklyn Grand Assembly of Dysfunctional Misfit Locker Room Poison.

The Cavs get two good players for their worthless Milwaukee first rounder. Nice little deal for them.

Nets mortgaging the future while Kyrie has gone AWOL is hilarious. I suppose a scenario exists where they are an amazing team, and they will need all three of those guys to be at their peak because their depth just went bye-bye, but that seems like a total and complete disaster.

If you're Houston your obvious interest is that Kyrie is so toxic that Durant flees Brooklyn after '22. If that happens that's potentially a good deal. Otherwise it's pretty awful as you're going to suck for a looooong time if/when your #1 goes to the Thunder.

It's already crashing.
Eh. I don't think they'll go full Hindenburg right away. It could happen, but I think the big three will try extra hard to make it work, and that will last a little while before they really start to hate each other.

I feel like this is a mistake Brooklyn has made before...

The 2030 Western Conference Finals between the Thunder and Rockets is going to be fantastic.

If the kd that's shown up so far is real, they're going to probably beat the lakers this year.

The internet puts too much stock into draft picks. See the lakers. They traded away everything, forever, and got a title. Teams dont give a shit about draft picks. They want a title and tomorrow's problems are tomorrow's problems

Have you been living under a rock? We are talking about Kyrie Irving here.

Agree about flags flying forever but the Lakers gave up much less to get Davis than Brooklyn just gave up to get Harden.

What is Brooklyn's top 8 at this point? Kyrie/Harden/Harris/Durant/Jordan start, I would assume. Then Shamet, Prince, and Jeff Green? They probably need another big since Jordan hasn't played 30 min/game since 2018. And they could use somebody who plays plus defense besides Durant.

Well now they have basically nothing they can trade so it seems like they are set, or will have to pick up some ring chasers if they get waived.

Oladipo is a FA after this season, right? So, this could be a rental. Or, will they trade him again? I assume there's no rule against that.
