    That's nice Moon. Maybe Danny should give you a call for a consult before the C's move forward. lol

    LOL.

    Are you saying you saw no modest to major reasons for concern with Kyrie?

    Like I said, I was "not alone" or some expert visionary on the subject.

    Today , many of the top NBA stars become celebrities. Like most celebrities, they tend to gravitate towards New York and L.A . The glamor towns .

    That's been true back to the days Kareem asked out of Milwaukee and maybe before.

    BTW, where did Kareem end up? LA.

    Where did Gretsky end up?

    Oh I'll admit that I drank the kool-aid with respect to Irving. Young guy, one of the most talented players in the game, looking for a team to lead. What was not too like? I'm not smart enough to figure out what the future holds for guys like him. I think that it is a far fetched case of hind sight now to suggest that anyone saw this one coming.

    I'm not saying many people saw the exact path Kyrie was taking, but I remember many questioning his choices and attitude while with the Cavs. As a Bucks fan, I remember thinking, I'm glad we didn't trade for him when the trade was announced.

    He wasn't a "team player" with the Cavs. It's not "hindsight."

    Kyrie is also just a really weird dude. He didn’t want to play with Lebron because he wanted his own team. Then shortly after joining the Celtics, he realized how dumb he was and tried reaching out and becoming friends with Lebron again. Then he left his “own team” that he wanted to team up with another star in KD. I don’t think he has any idea what he wants.

    Fizdale canned today by the Knicks. No shocker there. The Knicks were expected to be terrible, but not THIS terrible. What a POS franchise run by the POS Dolans.

    This Lebron/Anthony Davis duo looks like it is going to be a real problem.

    The in-season tournament idea sounds cool and would probably be successful. I don't like reseeding the final four in the playoffs though. Those games are already entertaining as is.

    Re-seeding rewards the better teams and helps create a better chance that the better (remaining) two teams will meet in the conference finals, whcih, in theory, should be more entertaining.

    I like the playoff format where #7 plays # 8 and the winner becomes the 7 seed. The loser plays the winner of #9 vs #10 play-in game for the final slot.
