    I’m not gonna pile on the guy if he really has a Mental health issue but you have to admit Kyrie comes off as quite the drama queen sometimes

    I don’t think he or anyone else truly believes the earth is flat. Just no way

    Whether or not Kyrie has a mental disorder or not, I don't think it is a big secret that Kyrie can be at the very least, aloof. Of course his new teammates are going to stick up for him right now. I do think it is interesting that these things are surfacing already with Brooklyn. Only time will tell if this stop is different for Kyrie.

    Dude is straight up not right in the head. He even thinks he is an intellectual, which is laughable.

    I’m not in his head, but she wrote the article and couldn’t give a specific example of what he did. She was like, “I think when he was in China, he didn’t want to take his hat off and when he played for Boston I think his grandfather died, which may have cause him to act strange.” I was like, those are your examples for this article? I certainly don’t agree with Kyrie with that flat earth shit, but this was a hit piece with no substance and she didn’t provide any in her own interview.

    Besides @denniden it do seem a lot of former Celtics fans and writers are bitter about Kyrie leaving so I take their criticisms with a grain of salt.

    You can take in any way you'd like, I get where your hesitation comes from. However, these criticisms and stories are not exclusive to the Celtic franchise.

    The fight was hilarious. I wanted to know Wiggins thoughts. He is friends with both.

    Ingram looks ready to take the next step towards being a star. He has played great so far this year. Okafor has done really well to recover his career. Happy for the bug guy! Overall, I am definitely a New Orleans fan right after the Celtics.

    Yep, they are my second favorite team behind the Lakers. Can’t wait to see what they look like with Zion back. They went undefeated in the preseason IIRC.

    We all can't wait for Zion to be healthy. It's one thing to have ....nvm....to the point. Zion is fun as f8ck to watch. He's great for the game itself and not many can say that.

    Shameless UK plug: same as Davis.

    Coming in late but didn't see Denver that high even when season started. I think top 4 are clips, LA, Houston and either SA or Utah.

    I kid....I kid.

    I thought they paid way too much for Heyward and would regret not spending where they needed to and help their rebounding/size. But I agree no way to know it would turn out like it did.

    Also agree on your assessment of Horford and Rozier.

    Yeah..he is well beyond the typical diva as you well know. And if this is surfacing so quickly maybe he's getting worse and not better.

    Sad, really.

    while he was still here and well before he asked to be traded, reporters said he would go weeks (yes, weeks) without talking to anyone during practices.

    No dog in their fight, but someone should tell Embiid he has been to the playoffs.

    I agree
    Some on here think otherwise about Denver

    But you have the Spurs way too high.

    With the Spurs.

    Matters what happens with the Mavs and Pels.
    I say the Spurs are easily the second best team in that division but they could end up #4 at some time.
    How soon into the year.

    As of right now I have them 5-8.

    Both the Los Angeles teams, Houston and Utah are clearly better than them.
    Maybe Denver and Portland.

    So I have them at 4-5, you have them possibly at 5 and I have them "way too high"?

    They are no where close to the Top 4.
    Not saying they cannot because like always they are adjusting their roster.

    Aldridge is a great player but he cannot win on his own and there is a good chance DeRozan gets moved.

    This is why I say you are way too high on them.
    Everything has to go correct and DeRozan stays for then to be a 4-5.
    Just don't see.

    Good chance they are #4 in their division by April.

    Exciting first couple of weeks. Doncic is a beast.

    This is a great year because countless franchises have to feel like they have a chance at it this year.

    I still like the Clips. Cool to see Lakers off fast. West is just loaded.

    Embiid is having a good time but now he's the target of all goons in the playoffs. He's gonna have to figure out how to balance the bear poking.
