I feel as though their ego may get in the way, and cause them to self-destruct. God forbid.

See the agenda 👀 They lost 2 games with the Big 3 together and every media show and podcast and haters mouths where overly disrespectful especially at Kyrie talking about trade him because they know if they don't create any drama and try anything they can to put a wedge between Kyrie and this team then at the end of the season they'll have to eat their words while the championship parade is going on in Brooklyn period. 2 wins and not a peep from the same shows and media dummies who a week ago had waaaayyyy to much to say the same energy ain't there why is that??? Keep hating I love it guess I have to wait until they lose again to hear that Kyrie hate and a word from you Nets haters and media dummies and parrots 🤣😭😂

Kyrie is a cancer on any team he’s on. And I keep telling ppl that just because a team lineup looks great on paper doesn’t mean they are going to be great. The nets are going to the playoffs, but will they win the playoffs is the question.

I agree with Max. I don't think that game is typical...sometimes Harden will shoot less than 15, and sometimes Kyrie will be the one shooting less than 15, and occasionally it will be Durant...I don't think the Nets are sweating it as much as the media is.

Lack of defense, lack of depth, lack of continuity, lack of size...the Nets will score lots of points and beat some really good teams, but they will also lose to a lot of mediocre teams and will most likely fizzle at the end of the season.

They are hibernating on Harris ? Dude is a pure shooter. Mark my word, Harris will bust 40 points and will hit 8 three pointers in a game. Maybe a few. Because all they have to do is kick it out. And somebody will have a triple double by feeding him.

Kirye is almost equal to James. Nets need to trade him ASAP. So team could build chemistry. They could get 3 good players + more.

Nobody STILL wants to address the elephant in the room of this being the Houston Rockets 2.0. As long as Mike D'Antoni is a part of any team's coaching staff, there's going to be high scoring and little or no defense. ...and Nash is an enabler to this, thus complicit as the head coach.

Kyrie is a luminous talent, but he's not a guy I'd want. He's not worth the baggage, and that's saying something. He is also NOT the best show in the NBA. That would be Steph Curry, preferably when he's not the only guy on his team who can hit a shot.

yes kyrie shouldnt always shoot more shots then harden and kevin durant ... but kyrie shot over 50% and had 37... so i think it was valid and some nights he willl have 30 and some nights harden will have 30 i think the defense was the problem more than kyrie having 37 on over 50% shooting and SAS being upset that some of those points didnt go to harden or KD

Nets should get to the finals once they figure things out....but when they meet Lebron and AD in the finals its gonna be da sha vu all over again...This team is nothing more than version 2 of OKC 2012, Harden, KD, and Kyre replacing Westbrook against Lebron, & AD replacing Dwade

Kyrie is a toxic player in my opinion. Everywhere he's been it's sucked for players around him and no past players come out and stick up for the guy because they don't like him. He sometimes good at basketball and thats only when he's healthy and on the court. Kyrie never made playoffs being the number one player on the team and never will.

Kyrie has to understand he needs to be a floor general and run the offense like rondo did with LA KD and Harden are the stars who are #1 options they needs to take the most shots with KD being the closer Kyrie thinks he’s on Lebron KD Steph levels but he’s not He’s talented for sure he can hit the 3 under pressure but he’s not consistent when needed to be like the others Brooklyn’s success will be decided on wether or not kyrie makes this change and of course they get better on defense.
