Just not playing well at all. Our field goal percentage is one of the worst in the league, donít know exactly but itís definitely bottom 5. Our good players are taking it in turns to play bad and we donít have superstars to pick it up if itís not all clicking. Iím not panicking just yet but itís not great.

George Hill on the newest COVID rules: ďI'm a grown man, so I'm going to do what I want to do. If I want to go see my family, then I am going to go see my family. They can't tell me what I'm going to do. If it's that serious, maybe we shouldn't be playing." (via @SuaveFrancisco_)

The regular NBA season had too many fixtures anyway, but this year it's just ridiculous. How they thought this was going to work, with all of the travelling etc. without severe disruption is beyond me. Boston will have missed 3 games in a row if I'm not mistaken, it's going to be difficult to reschedule these fixtures if we end up hitting double figures by March which could easily happen. And of course, a lot of NBA players aren't the brightest so no surprises players like George Hill start undermining the entire effort with comments like that!

The idea of a team containing Harden, Kyrie and and KD with their personalities and egos makes me chuckle.

The Nets just donít learn do they? As soon as they get some assets and picks in hands they trade them all for a player that has to have the ball constantly. It wonít work.

Ridiculous from the Nets if they pull this off.

NYC is a big draw and they all want to go to little Brooklyn, I hate being a Knicks fan.

I can see Houston being the long-term winner here. The Nets are title or bust now.

Haha, I love it!

3 players that are in the argument for the NBA GOAT Divas, all on one team, all needing the ball to be useful, all wanting to shoot the ball, all leaving their former teams having played with HOFers that they couldn't get along with, all having individually complained about needing a team to lead their own way.

What could go wrong? ;D

Forget basketball, this is Housewives of the NBA style drama in the making, and I'll make an exception and watch the drama.

Fair play to the Rockets, theyíve well and truly hit the reset button.

From a Nets point of view, that trio is not better than the Lakers duo so I doubt itíll help them win the title. But weíll see what happens.

Sounds like a really dumb move by the Nets, echoes of when they went after Pierce + Garnett + An.Other (?). Be funny if the season got called off for COVID after they went in for a supposed title push (which is guaranteed not to work for the reasons stated above).

After this trade Nets wonít have had control of their own first round pick for 14 years between 2013-2027! This is the ultimate all in move havenít been that many trades in the history of sport that involve handing over this many assets for a player. Canít wait to grab some popcorn as watch the drama unfold  ;D

Still waiting to here more about this drama.
Where did he wander off, why, and why didn't he make contact with the club that's paying him his salary?
The Brooklyn DramaQueens are already offering a preview of what is in store.

part of me thinks Nets mgmt saw that Kyrie is batshit crazy and they can't rely on him in a must win year hence the James Harden trade.

Do people think Nets will challenge then this year? I'm still confident in the Lakers with the Clippers or Bucks a close run if they don't crumble in the play offs again

Think you could be right, not thatíll make a difference hate saying it but the Lakers are so far ahead of everyone else. Weird though, despite the well documented issues, he was given quite a warm embrace when he returned to Boston, although obviously got a lot of stick from the fans.
