In some respects I'm almost resigned to letting Kyrie and Morris walk. Keep all the players and picks and keep growing. You notice how the FAs are the one speaking out...Morris and Kyrie.

If this young guys feel more cohesion and play harder with each other, go with it. They proved and may have learned something going to the ECF last year. That is no easy task and to limit their growth now isn't wise.

No offense, but I wish people would stop bringing up last year's playoffs. It's not like the team did anything remarkably special. Okay, they won't farther than most expected w/o Kyrie and lost to a decimated Cavs team in 7 games.

Is that the new bar now? Just to make it to the Eastern Conference finals

Let's move on from last year's playoffs, please. Last year's playoff roster is not going to win a championship and that's the goal (or should be the goal.)

Not too mention that things haven't remained static.

Obviously, CLE got worse but MIL, TOR, & PHI are all better.

This team needs Kyrie.

And do what?  Plateau with a couple of 2nd round exits, hope for the youth to grow and/or undergo another rebuild?

I do not know what you are going to do, I do not get paid the big bucks, but please dont tell me Kyrie's health is not now a concern. I dont know maybe you still pay him the max but what use is he if he is not playing.

I donít think this is rock bottom. We can go lower.

lower than losing to a buzzer beater by Rondo on a Laker team that the Cs led by 18 points at one point and 6  points with a minute to go AND then to lose to a Clipper team led by a coach that did not want to coach the Cs after leading at one point by 28 pts? Lower than that???

Last year is what the young guys build off. We can't ignore it because they aren't ignoring it...that's how they got their reps.

I'm still not sure Kyrie makes up better. I see guys deferring, standing around when he plays. Everyone loses their aggressiveness. I'm just leery in gutting the team for an injury prone player.🤷🏾‍♂️. He can never play nicked up.

This team is like a random number generator. It rips off 10 out of 11 then sh*ts the bed twice in a row. Itís an irresistible wrecking ball for a half then escorts the opposing team to the rim for uncontested dunks for the next quarter or two while bricking their own shots. I just donít know who they are. Ultra-streaky. When the wheels come off, hoo boy - itís all four wheels all at once. So, yeah. I could see a nice win streak followed by a complete collapse - how about losing to Philly by 40?

Fortunately, there's an easy solution: Blow it up by trading everyone of value and then tank and hope for Zion.

Now, where's that sarcasm emoji?

Rock Bottom? Seriously?

Knicks have lost 16 in a row, Suns 13 in a row and the Cavs are 11-45 and do not even have the worst record in the league...Rock Bottom is far from where we are.

If we are healthy, we can beat anybody.

Not if the Celts are not fundamentally sound.

Celts are weak in rebounding and they rely too much on the 3-point shot.

Baynes will help greatly with the rebounding. I feel he's really underrated around here.
