Rest him until the end of ASB.

Let's see what these young kids are made of in Philadelphia without their leading-scorer.

Nice!

I still hope even if he's ready to go Tuesday that he doesn't play the All Star Game and rests. We absolutely need a healthy Kyrie to have any chance at making a deep playoff run.

Kyrie is a 25 yr old with numerous DNP for knee issues. He has had multiple knee surgeries. This is not a player you want to spend a supermax contract on. Not when your other supermax are a player returning from serious ankle injury and a player over his prime years.

Danny has a tough job ahead.

But if they don't, other teams will be lining up to do just that.  So you're absolutely correct regarding what Ainge has to work through.  Maybe though you can do a 2 or 3 year deal so both sides can keep their options open. No one seems to to want to commit to more than 3 years (actually 2 + an option) these days anyway.

For the millionth time, Kyrie Irving is not eligible for a super max. In order to get that you must play for the same team as your rookie deals.

Heís going to sign roughly a 5 year 180 million deal and itís going to be worth every penny. You donít let people like Kyrie walk over money.

Agreed. What astounds me is I think some people are taking for granted just how good Kyrie really is. Pay attention to him on the court. His ball handling is phenomenal and his court awareness is off the charts. He literally runs circles around his defender. He puts on a show like I've never seen and it truly is a pleasure watching him play.

No question he is by far the best ball handler in the history of the NBA. That is a fact. What is also a fact is that he is not durable. You have to decide what you want. A showman or championships. He cannot win you championships if he is not playing. It is clear you have to manage his minutes. Because of that you cannot pay him the max because you have to pay his backup that will keep him healthy.

I take my chances and give him the max. You're not going to find a better point guard in the league than Kyrie and because we can offer him the most money, it's in the team's best interest to keep him. He also suffered his share of injuries in Cleveland but he also played a large role in the Cavs winning a championship.

He sure did that in Cleveland, but guess what when he did not play, they did not win. Celtics must find a way to keep him on the court. Pay him, but get expert opinion from the doctors on how much his knees can take. His issues are his knees or knee. When you pay an asset 180,000,000 you need to protect the asset.  Maybe Kyrie should even be counseled about some of his ankle breaking moves.

We don't have any supermax players on our roster.

At the end of the day, Kyrie will get a max contract. If not from Boston, then a slew of teams will be lining up to offer it to him.

...and the team that pays that should do its due diligence so they know what they are getting,

I have been saying this for a long time. Spend your money on bigger, stronger players.

Kyrie does not have knee problems like Chris Paul.

The only major knee surgery Kyrie had was when he got injured in the 2015 Finals.

Last season's knee surgery was a follow up to that 2015 surgery.

Other than that, Kyrie's only other major injury was back in college when missed the majority of the college season due to a toe injury.

So it's not true that Kyrie is not durable.

Ainge would've traded Kyrie, at the trade deadline, if the Celts had no plans of giving him a max contract after this season.

What Ainge and the Celts are envisioning is a tandem of Kyrie and AD for many years to come.
