Default Re: Irving Goes To The Nets And They Got Worse?

lol Obviously you didn't actually watch any Nets game. It's not like Russell was casrying them. He had a average to above average star offensive player impact. They won the games they did because the east was pathetic and they also had a lot of other players chipping in with notable positive impacts. Anyone who thinks Russell was carrying the Nets didn't actually ever watch the team or is a fukking retard. Which are you OP?

Kyrie Irving is a much much better individual talent than Russell...I won't ever disagree with that. He's also a guy who completely kills the overall impact a team can bring as whole as we've seen on the Celtics. Nobody can deny Irving is better than Walker, but you've have to be an absolute potato to what Kyrie on your team over Kemba for the simple reason Kemba is a great leader and team player that teammates actually want to play. Your individual impact doesn't go so far if you kill the enthusiasm of the rest of your. Kyrie is that guy.

Thumbs down Re: Irving Goes To The Nets And They Got Worse?

Kyrie is only good at closing games. That is why he only won with LeBron, LeBron would dominate whole game in every aspect of the game, and then Kyrie would close, they were a perfect combo. If you give Kyrie a team to lead they are not going anywhere, we already saw that before he played with LeBron, and now we are seeing it after LeBron.

If only Irving had a healthy Hayward to start last season... We'll see how good Tatum and Brown really are now that they don't have Gordon for a few months.

Coming from a Nets fan... I can't stand watching them anymore. Went to plenty of home games last season and the chemistry was fun to watch. The whole Kyrie signing was about one thing... Kevin Durant. I'm done watching them until he gets back on the court. And even then... it's all iso-ball.

We lost Carroll, Dudley,Rondae and Davis are 4 best defenders especially Ed Davis who should have made the all defensive team

Prince can shoot but he can't do much else. Jordan is just a big body he's useless at this point of his career why df did we pay him so much money

Kyrie is playing well and is not the reason we are losing, are issue is defense

It ain't what it used to be with the evolution of medicine and surgeries.

I don't know about his best but he was definitely one of the few athlete's to come back from an Achilles's without losing a step. This is rare though. Literally everyone else has came back a shell of themselves so using Dominique as a example isn't a good one.

I don't know man. Everyone who's torn there Achilles's recently haven't come back the same. Ruddy gay and westly Mathews don't look to bad but there not what they were. He'll still be very good but he won't be same and he won't be good enough to win a chip with Kyrie and the nets. Even a slight drop off in the NBA can make a huge difference.
