Kyrie is a really reserved person so this press conference and his answers, his attitude, doesn't really strikes me as something. He is a little different then most of the people, he's very creative obviously, he's not impressed with all nba hoopla, he's calm and that sometimes is enough for the media and fans to react and view him differently.
From what I see on the court, I like him very much. He's an extraordinary player, one in the generation type of player, and when you have one of those players you stick with him. You respect him. And that what I think is Danny and ownership are doing. They will respect his decision. They obviously talk, and tehy know what kind of player he is and what he brings to the table. And they respect that.
Firts of, nobody dislikes the money, especially that kind of money, so to view his comments like he really only cares about the money is not fair. This is business o/c.
Why don't we look at his decision as: okay, I will get healthy, I will get my strenghts back, work on my game, be better player and a better leader of this ballclub, prove myself that I can lead this team to the championship and then I will talk about my extension. Wouldn't this be fair? I think it would. Is it more risk for him to? Yes it is.
Overall, I hope he stays here long-term, cose I really like him at the helm of this young team. People forget how good he is, and that with healthy Theis and Larkin we would probably still be playing b ball. What about this team with healthy, in prime Kyrie, Gordon, Jaylen, Jason, Al and others? wow, just wow...
