It’s not a troll job. We all recognize it is completely off the wall, but think about it:
If Kyrie is betrayed by his supposed BFF KD and sidekick Harden (and Harden is clearly PO’d at Kyrie), who would have to sign off on any trade, we can totally see Kyrie being on a mission wherever he lands next.
He can easily blame his departure on Ainge and say that we’re all good now—he can state he’s never had an issue with Stevens, Tatum, Brown and Smart, and he’s excited to be coached by Udoka.
It’s possibly our only way to score a Big 3 this season, and Kyrie is a truly amazing talent when he’s motivated, focused and not distracting folks.
Furthermore, he’s super popular with players around the league, so rebuilding this allegiance could be huge for our long-term rep, including the rep of GM BS who is clearly not Danny. Bring back IT at the same time and we truly rebuild our rep with the players.
All in all, firmly believe if package one or two gets the job done, we should go for it. To heck with the past. We need a third star to get past the Nets and Bucks, and if it’s Kyrie after all, well, so be it!
