Would you do this? Who says no? Wall signed an extension last year:

Quote
The Washington Wizards and All-Star point guard John Wall have agreed to a four-year, $170 million extension, a league source told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The deal, first reported by TNT, begins in 2019, the source said. It includes a fourth-year player option and a 15 percent trade kicker.

I believe Wall is the better player, but his contract and age make that a no go.

John Wall might have the worst contract in the NBA.

And a bad personality.

In the fourth quarter with a playoff game on the line would you really rather have Wall? Not me.

Can't we just be happy that the Celtics have one of the best players in the world in Irving? I don't get the constant need to come up with trade ideas to ship the guy out of town.

Absolutely not. We'd be giving up the superior player. It's laughable to elevate Wall above Irving.

I'd rather see Kyrie walk away for nothing than take on Wall's albatross of a contract. 

And not only is Wall's contract horrific, but his game won't age well as it is predicated on quickness and athleticism, while not being a very good outside shooter, so he's likely to decline much more rapidly and be much less useful as "Old John Wall" than "Old Kyrie" will be (Kyrie's shooting stroke will prolong his productive career).  Kyrie is also younger than Wall.

Not a chance.

I take Kyrie over Wall, 7 days a week.

I wish we could combine them into one player.

Wall is a significantly better passer and defender.

Kyrie is a significantly better / more efficient scorer and shooter.

Neither seems like a fantastic leader, as each has been a bit prickly with teammates at times.

I see the appeal for acquiring Wall.  With scorers like Hayward and Tatum, Kyrie's elite scoring is arguably less important than defense and having more of a facilitator.  But, if it's not broke, don't fix it at this point, unless a trade is clearly in our favor.

Kyrie is making these threads just to test whether we appreciate him or not. Good job everyone.
