It's unfortunate that Kyrie is such a headcase. He's got a lot of basketball talent, but he almost seems to be getting to the classification of mental illness at this point. Ordinarily, you'd have thought he'd make it through at least half a season in his new, self-chosen situation before flaking out (I don't really count last year - as it was quite the aberration). But, here we are, and he already doesn't get along with his coach and his self-chosen duo. Is there any situation where this guy can succeed?
I think we are too quick to attribute mental illness to someone who acts differently than we expect. It does a disservice to those with true mental illness. I'm with Red on this one, I think he's simply a narcissistic asshole. I'm enjoying watching the situation around him collapse. So happy that he got away from the Celtics young talent.

Cavs will trade or waive Kevin Porter Jr. Hasn't played this year yet. Got into a car accident and had a gun and weed, but all charges dropped.

They moved his locker so Prince could have his and he threw a hissy fit (literally threw food around the locker room).

Porter has a lot of talent. If the Cavs want Carsen Edwards, Boston could take a chance on him.
No idea if the C's are interested in Porter, but their team culture seems incredibly strong, and I'm guessing one donkey wouldn't break it.

Porter seems like an awful fit here. In most places actually. You don’t need a kid like that around a team looking to contend.

Couldn't agree more.

Kid couldn't fake his way through one year at USC. Can't stand out on a pretty bad Cleveland team. Can't stay on the straight and narrow.

He'll hit rock bottom someday and hopefully snap his head on straight, but until then who needs the headache.

How much of a fuckup do you have to be to get suspended in your one and done year at USC?
