  1. What’s the deal with all the other teams’ fans constantly saying that certain players are “off limits” or “untradeable”??? Seriously, the only players who are “untradeable” are players like LeBron, Carmelo, etc., and only because they have a “no trade clause” in their contract. And even they are not completely untradeable if they decide to waive their no trade clause for a certain team. So when these fans of opposing teams keep acting like we can’t take their players in a trade just because they feel like they are worth so much more than Kyrie, I have to laugh. Opposing teams’ fans can try and belittle Kyrie’s value all they want, but at the end of the day, they were all watching Kyrie play in the NBA Finals the past 3 years, while their team struggled to win 20 or 30 games the past few seasons, or longer. .. and deep down they all know how special of a talent he is. He’s only 25 years old, just entering his prime, and has already accomplished more than most players do in their entire career. …3 Finals appearances, 1 NBA championship, 4x all-star, multiple gold medals including fiba mvp, rookie of the year, 3-point contest winner, rising star challenge mvp, all-star game mvp… the list of accolades and accomplishments goes on and on. That’s why there is no NBA player that should be considered “off-limits” when it comes to a trade for Irving. Any NBA franchise who trades for Irving is taking a gamble on him staying with the team long term, but that’s the case with every player who’s already on their team now. All players’ contracts end, and they either re-sign or choose to go elsewhere. A lot can happen is 2 years. Winning changes everything, or so we thought. At least it does for most players. And let’s face it, even if the team who trades for Kyrie ends up with a losing record, well at least the owner will be making a ton of money off ticket sales, tv ratings, merchandise, etc. So when opposing team fans want to act like their players are worth so much just because they have potential… well then i ask them this: How many all-star games did they play in? How many rings or Finals appearances do they have? Were they ever rookie of the year or all-star game MVP? How many gold medals do they have? Yes, I’m talking about players like Kristaps Porzingis, Josh Jackson, Devon Booker, etc. – opposing team fans seem to think they can just add Kyrie to their team like he;s a free agent LOL well, guess what? Kyrie is not a free agent. Your team cannot just have Kyrie in exchange for a bag of chips and a few average players. He’s under contract for 2 years plus a 3rd year player option with the Cleveland Cavaliers… and until the player/s we want are offered in the right deal, from the right team, and on the Cavaliers’ terms, then nobody, and I mean nobody is allowed to say who is or isn’t “off limits” or “untradeable” in exchange for one of the greatest and most gifted players in the league today.
